My delightful trip to Lanzarote

Sunday, July 10th, 2011

Lanzarote is really bizarre. I’ve been there last year in March, the best month to travel there, I think.

Lanzarote is the fourth largest of the Canary Islands and is located in the north-east of Fuerteventura. The island has a dramatic landscape: no trees, no bushes, less water. What’s interesting about Lanzarote is its volcanic origin, its volcanic lakes and caves.

Lanzarote is the fourth largest of the Canary Islands located just off the coast of Africa.

But on Lanzarote there was important volcanic activity during the 18th and 19th century. The arid climate and almost complete lack of erosion has left the traces of the volcanic eruptions intact and the landscape of the island has a touch of a lunar landscape.

We visited Lanzarote in Summer 2008 when it became more and more popular to go there. It was a beautiful and warm year and we enjoyed every moment of our holidays.

We stayed in Arrecife in a beautiful hotel very close to the town, where you can get souvenirs and really nice food.

But as we love adventuresRead the rest
