What to expect?
We propose you a trip to the volcanic heart of Lanzarote: the “Timanfaya National Park” and by the way, taste the best wines of Lanzarote in La Geria.
We will start the route in the direction of “Timanfaya National Park” doing the “Route of the Volcanoes” in which we see different types of craters combined by a vivid chromatism that reflects the origin of the eruption, the materials that it emitted or even the intensity with which it exploded. We will see the traces of the eruptions that took place almost 300 years ago by performing geothermal demonstrations, that is to say, we will see the heat that still emanates from the earth in different ways, all of them very spectacular.
Within the “Timanfaya National Park”, we have the possibility to take a camel ride (optional – not included in the price).
Once the route through the “Timanfaya National Park” is finished, we will go to “La Geria”, a peculiar wine-growing area where a very typical variety of Lanzarote abounds, the “Malvasia”, a landscape so unique that it is engraved in our memories.
The vines are planted in cones formed in the lapilli, called “picón” in the Canary Islands, and protected by small dry stone walls. Fruit trees, such as fig trees, are also planted in the same way. This form of cultivation allows the plants to take root more easily in the fertile soil, and the top layer of picón reduces water loss through evaporation. A landscape made up of thousands of holes and crescent-shaped walls that additionally protect the crops from the wind.
The memory is more complete when we do not limit ourselves to just seeing, but also to taste, to savoring, to taste the rich wines that a land as extreme as Lanzarote has the honor of producing. Obviously, we visited a bodega and tasted its wine.
After these spectacular visits, we take the road back to our hotel.
