Lanzarote is one of the best Canarian Islands – with so much to offer, it’s an island that makes you want to find your captain and ask to stay for more than one day! We’ve picked out five of the must-do activities in this lunar landscape – so take your pick!.
Cueva de Los Verdes
Explore Lanzarote from the inside out – the Green Caves are a series of underground laval tunnels that run through the island’s northern tip like arteries. The passageways here were formed more than 3,000 years ago when the Monte de la Carona volcano exploded and the heat of its lava flows hollowed out the ground on its route to the sea. Take the tour and weave in and out of stalactites and stalagmites – this is an excursion you simply don’t want to miss when visiting!
Rancho Texas Park
Are you an animal lover? If so, you’ll love Rancho Texas, Lanzarote’s very own conservation centre and modern zoo. There are over 50 animal enclosures, so you’ll meet crocodiles, tortoises, sea lions and plenty more on this tour. And, you can watch some of them in action in four different themed shows! Where else can you see giant majestic eagles swooping inches above your head? Plus there’s a Wild West lasso show and a splash-filled sea lion spectacular. Add that to a gold mine, and plenty of children’s play areas – and you’ve got a real something-for-everyone day out. Plus, bringing the American theme to the table, you’ll get a Texas burger and fries to tuck into for lunch. Perfect munchies when you’re on the go!
This excursion has some of the best feedback out of them all in Lanzarote – you’ll head to the attractive marina of Puerto Calero on Lanzarote’s south coast, and embark on a voyage of exploration as you step onboard a svelte submarine. During your 45-dive off the coastline, you’ll discover the secrets of life beneath the waves. And every window has its own TV screen too, to give you all the information you need to make the most of the experience. It’s an unforgettable adventure!
Timanfaya National Park
If there’s one place you HAVE to go in Lanzarote, it’s Timanfaya National Park. Born out of fiery volcanic eruptions, this corner of Lanzarote is all craters, calderas and cones. Drive through the barren landscape taking in the luna-like scenery and stop to see local guides perform amazing volcanic experiments. They’ll turn brushwood into fire and cups of water into steaming geysers! You can even take a camel ride through the scorched valleys and across the crater’s edge. Leaving Timanfaya behind, pay a visit to the vineyards of La Geria where you can try – and buy – the local tipples before heading back to the ship.
If you’re looking for somewhere for nice views, nostalgic novelty shops, some great food and drink options and a great chilled out atmosphere – a trip to Marina Rubicon is for you! The bars around the marina are mainly family-orientated and offer a more relaxed entertainment than some of the more boisterous resorts in Lanzarote. Watch the yachts bob up and down as you sip on a cocktail at trendy café bar Caribe, or pull up a seat at One Bar, a popular spot for a shot or two before boarding your ship again.
