Things to see and do on Lanzarote
An island encased in surreal beauty; Lanzarote was made to be explored. Past its white sand and black volcanic beaches lie a whole host of activities.
Trek to the top of ‘Fire Mountain’ and indulge in a barbeque feast prepared from Timanfaya’s natural fires. Or if you don’t want to miss out on the tasty action; hop aboard a coach and watch in wonder as you snake among lava flows and up steep-sided craters.
A biker’s paradise, take to two wheels and explore rugged coastlines, mountain trails, and volcanic vineyards hidden in the island's unique lunar landscapes. Spend sun-filled days uncovering the legacy of famous artist César Manrique. Or journey to the lime-green lagoons and quirky caves that scatter Lanzarote’s coastline.
Food and drink on Lanzarote
Tenerife combines Spanish flavours with more Venezuelan influences. Restaurants in the north of Tenerife serve up daily menus of traditional Canarian tapas, fresh seafood, and other regional specialities. Down south the main resorts offer a good mixture of local, international, and British cuisine.
If you’re interested in trying some local food, start easy with papas arrugadas aka wrinkled potatoes. Smothered in salt and served warm with a bowl of mojo sauce on the side, they change the potato game.
