Excursions Lanzarote
  • Beauty of a Paradise Island: Lanzarote is indeed and has always been a paradise island, and that is why you will find lots of documentation in the museums there about lots of pirate attacks in the past. Of course now you won’t see any pirates here!!! But lots of very friendly locals and tourists who like you enjoy the most lovely sunny weather in Lanzarote all year round. Breathe in the fresh and pollution free air when you first land at the airport and enjoy the warmth of the sun throughout your holiday, truly a paradise!!!
  • The unique volcanic landscape: All of the Canary Islands, including Lanzarote is made of volcanic landscape which is not only unique but worth a visit. All of the massive volcanic mountains, forming the Timanfaya National Park is now part of UNESCO’s Biosphere Reserve. Admire the Timanfaya National Park, the volcanic wine region of La Geria, the beautiful and picturesque village of Haria and much more in the most popular Grand Tour of Lanzarote.
  • Papas Arrugadas: The famed wrinkled potatoes or Papas Arrugadas is an authentic Canarian dish where small new potatoes are boiled in salt water with their skin on and later baked to make a wrinkled like skin which is crispy and a very tasty appetiser when had with mojo i.e., pepper sauce. Enjoy tasting Papas Arrugadas and many more traditional Canarian dishes at the so many amazing Restaurants, do ask for LanzaroteON’s Membership Discount while you’re there. Happy Eating!!!!
  • Volcanic tunnels of Jameos del Agua and Cueva de los Verdes: The volcanic terrain is not only visible above land, but also below the land in the form of Jameos del Agua and Cueva de los Verdes or Green Caves. Thee two caves have been iconic in painting a different and exciting picture of Lanzarote. Don’t miss the blind albino caves in the natural pool inside Jameos del Agua and the beautiful hues of green inside Cueva de los Verdes, truly mesmerizing, like you are transported to a different time and era on the Lanzarote Highlights Tour.
  • LagOmar: Visit the popular former home of British actor Omar Sharif in the North Tour. Omar Sharif had won and later lost the house in a game of cards in early 1970’s against Sam Benady, the British developer. LagOmar is not only popular for this story but is a true oasis, built from the same volcanic rock on which it stands. It’s a beautiful masterpiece conceived by artist César Manrique and designed by Jesús Soto for Sam Benady.
  • Day Island visits to Fuerteventura and La Graciosa: You can keep one day each to do island hopping, one day to enjoy the pristine Sand Dunes of Fuerteventura and another day to enjoy the beautiful sandy beaches of La Graciosa on the I Love La Graciosa excursion. Both these day trips offer you breathtaking views of Lanzarote’s coast on a glass bottomed catamaran, along with relaxation, scrumptious lunch, fun water activities and cool sea breeze of the Atlantic.
  • Underwater Museum or Museo Atlantico: Europe’s 1st Underwater Museum is in Lanzarote, where you dive 14 metres below sea level to see nature at its best, corals and various marine life clinging to the eco-friendly sculptures, different colors and sizes of fish making it their new home, simply breathtaking and once in a lifetime experience. There are two excursions you can opt for depending on your diving experience, Underwater Museum Lanzarote Beginners and Underwater Museum Lanzarote Qualified Diver.
  • Watersport Activities: You are in Lanzarote and not doing any of the popular watersport activities then it’s a big “GO AND DO IT”!!!!! No matter what you do we guarantee it would be the most amazing time of your holiday, whether you want to try out the Active Excursions like Scuba Diving, surfing and snorkelling or the amazing Sea Excursions like I Love Papagayo Catamaran, Submarine Safaris, Flyboarding, Jetskiing, Parascending and more.
  • César Manrique: César Manrique was a renowned artist from Lanzarote who was instrumental in changing how Lanzarote looks now. He was a visionary who didn’t want huge hoardings welcoming tourists into Lanzarote but beautiful artistic sculptures. He gave a new meaning to the paradise island, dedicating his works towards restoration of volcanic caves of Jameos del Agua and Cueva de los Verdes into beautiful masterpieces. You can enjoy all of his works in the César Manrique Tour.
  • Lanzarote Markets: Lanzarote Markets are the best places to buy local handicrafts, aloe products, Lanzarote wines and more which make really good gifts and souvenirs for friends and family back home. You can go to famous Teguise Market from Puerto del Carmen or Costa Teguise or to the Teguise Market from Playa Blanca, depending on where you are staying. The second popular market is the Playa Blanca Market Marina Rubicon. There is also the Puerto Calero Market, a bit smaller that the Teguise and Playa Blanca markets, but equally popular.

It is always best to reserve all the things to do in Lanzarote before you arrive in Lanzarote, since most of the excursions go always full and you don’t wanna miss out on doing any of the exciting activities. With Excursions Lanzarote you can reserve places for you, your family and friends for as little as €2.00, isn’t that awesome!!!
