Sights & Highlights
Highlights of our stay on Lanzarote were
- Road No. 1 along the north-eastern coast through the lava fields of Malpais de la Corona, trip Orzola on our last day.
- Routes crossing the Timanfaya National Parque (day 2 and day 4).
Hiking and Countryside
- Geocaching (or hiking) in the area of Caserio de Tenezar: Tracking down this cache is a multi sensory experience. You will taste the salty misty spray from the sea, feel the sun burn, hear the sea waves break upon the shore while trying not to hurt your fingers searching for the cache in the moonlike-lava landscape (rumor has it NASA trained on Lanzarote for walking on the moon).
- Timanfaya National Parque is of course a must-see.
- Last, but not least, the winegrowing area La Geria was striking.
Snorkeling and Bathing
- I saw the first colorful fish swarms of my life outside aquariums at Playa Blanca, Puerto del Carmen.
Countless web sites give sightseeing tips on Lanzarote. It's hard to recommend one, but I like this one.
