Escorted Holiday Lanzarote, Canary Islands - Tour Itinerary 2015 - Stein Travel

Our Escorted Holiday Itinerary for Lanzarote,

14 May & 15 October 2015

 

Day 1 : 

Depart Dublin to Lanzarote Arrecife Airport. On arrival, you will be transferred to the 4* Hotel Beatrix Playa in Matagorda.  This transfer will take approximately 15 minutes. After a welcome meeting and drink, the rest of the day is at leisure. Dinner in the hotel in the evening.

 

Day 2 : 

After breakfast, depart for a half day guided tour of the North of the Island of Lanzarote.  

Duration: approximately 4,5 hours.

Lanzarote is different, not only compared to the other islands, but to everything else on this planet. This extraordinary landscape seems to be of another world, and the inhabitants of the islands use to say that God forgot of Lanzarote on the seventh day of the creation. Travelling northward you will visit Haria with its gorgeous view of the valley of 1000 palms, a steep headland on the northern part of the island offering a breathtaking panoramic view of the sea and the nearby Islands.  Then, you will drive to Mirador del Río, a spectacular viewpoint where you will have a magnificent panoramic view and if the weather permits you could see the island La Graciosa.

Then you will visit the “Jameos Del Agua” cave, also the result of volcanic activity and decorated by the famous artist Cesar Manrique. This salt-water lagoon is home to the blind little crabs, which are unique in the world. On the return journey you will discover some interesting facts about the cultivation of the Wood loose in the Villages of Mala and Guatiza and stop at the “Jardín Del Cactus”. Inside a spectacular stone-built enclosure, rather like an ancient Roman Amphitheatre, unique and without comparison in worldwide gardening traditions, you can behold 1.500 cacti of over 1.000 different species. The Cactus Garden is built of stone with terracing and is well worth a visit.

In the late afternoon, we return to our hotel with dinner in the hotel in the evening. 

 

Day 3 : 

Today is a full day of leisure to relax or explore Lanzarote at you own pace. Breakfast and dinner in the hotel. 

 

Day 4 : 

After breakfast at the Hotel depart for a full day guided tour which will take you to the Island of La Graciosa.  We are going to take you on an unforgettable trip to the breathtaking surrounding of the volcanic Island of Lanzarote. We will drive, heading north along the coast of Lanzarote, until reach the small town of Órzola. There, we will board a catamaran that will cross to the island of La Graciosa. Once docked, we will visit the village of Caleta de Cebo and the church. Afterwards, we will have some time to walk around this special place. Back on board, we will enjoy a “tortilla” (Spanish omelette) with soft drinks during the sea journey, while heading to see the inlets nearby that will end up at Montaña Amarilla (Yellow Mountain). Later on, we will move on to the amazing Francesa beach where we have a chance for dipping in the crystal clear water or to take part of the offered activities (Kayaks, Snorkeling or inflatables – not included). On the sail back, we will have Spanish lunch, including paella with soft drinks, wine and fruits; before we arrive to Orzola where our bus will take us to our awaiting ship.

In the late afternoon, we return to our hotel with dinner in the hotel in the evening.

Day 6 : 

Experience the devilish terrain and dramatic landscapes of Lanzarote’s number one attraction - Timanfaya National Park. During your visit enjoy the surroundings by camel and ride alongside a volcano!  The lava beds are seen on both sides of the road as you approach the Fire Mountain and the scenery becomes more reminiscent of the surface of the moon with lava formations and volcanic craters. Demonstrations by uniformed staff will show you the violent forces beneath the earth’s crust, proving that the volcano is not extinct, but only dormant.  Unique to Lanzarote, the camels will transport you in a wicker basket-chair situated either side of the camel's hump. The 35 minute camel ride will take you in a camel-train over the volcanic dunes, which lie at the entrance to the Timanfaya National Park.  Before leading you through the beautiful vineyard area, we show you the coast, passing by the Salt Flats of Janubio, Los Hervideros and El Golfo.

Near Timanfaya you will be able to visit the Aloe Vera Museum to know this miraculous plant and also a stop will be made at the awarded village of Yaiza.
