Guided walks in Lanzarote with Canary Trekking
Get to know with a team of pofessional nature guides the natural protected areas of Lanzarote by carrying out some guided walks. We will take you to areas out of the mass tourism with a high ecological interest in small groups ( from 6 to 16 persons per guide and excursion). The guided walks we offer are adapted to be accesible to everyone according to its physical conditions, interest and knowledge about flora, fauna and geology. You will perfectly understand how works a volcano by going up to the interior of some craters, one of them filled with a lake of solidified lava, walking across the lava fields, lava channels, tunnels etc. when you walk on the moonscape of Lanzarote (Los Volcanes Natural Park). Also the geological process and the evolucion of flora in the Famara Nature Park in the northern group of mountains of the island . In summer also posible snorkelling in La Graciosa.
We do these treks regularly all year round therefore we don´t require a minimum number of participants to carry it out. Our service includes transportation in our vehicles from accomodation area to the nature park where the walk starts. Also accompaniment by a nature guide in spanish, english or german speaking.
Route 1 : Walking on the moonscape of Lanzarote (Los Volcanes Nature Park). Difficulty: low. - Distance: 6 km - Elevation difference: 150 m - Time: 3 hours
Los Volcanes Nature Park together with Timanfaya National Park are the protected areas which represent the recient and historical volcanism of Lanzarote because they are covered by the eruptions that took place in 1730-36 and 1824.
We carry out a very informative route in which our visitors will be able to discover the amazing world of volcanoes when they walk across lava flows or ascend to volcanic cones where it´s posible to find spectacular craters, lava tunnels, lava lakes, etc. All the volcanic structures are well conserved because due to the arid climate of Lanzarote the evolution of vegetation is very slow therefore the landscape we find it is like a huge open-air museum of volcanology. Also it will be posible to understand how is the slow but constant rebirth of life upon the lava.
In short, this visit will help us to understand how was our planet millions of years ago and how work its inner forces and, at the same time, marvel with a landscape of another world.
