Hiking Routes in Lanzarote
On the island you can find a multitude of routes for all tastes. You can choose the one that best suits your level from a variety of walks which cover the whole geography of the island. Here is a small selection:
Ye-Volcán de la Corona (Corona Volcano)
DISTANCE: 5 kilometres TYPE: Circular route
DIFFICULTY: Low DURATION: 1½ hours
A fairly easy route, recommended for the whole family to enjoy. The hike starts in the village of Ye and stands out for the colourful and different species of flora and fauna which can be found along the way, the particular shape of the crater and, of course, the impressive views from the highest point (609 meters).
Camino de los Gracioseros (The Walk of the Gracioseros)
DISTANCE:8 kilometres TYPE: Circular route
DIFFICULTY:Medium-High DURATION: 3 hours
A beautiful route, unique for its history. This walk united the inhabitants of La Graciosa with Lanzarote during many years. The impossible job of cultivating crops on the island of La Graciosa due to the arid land forced the inhabitants to travel to Lanzarote in small boats to do business. The Gracioseros took their wives to the beach at the base of the cliffs and they carried all the stock on their heads, climbed up the path until they reached the village of Haría. The aim was to exchange fish for produce from the crops. When they finished, they once again put the exchanged items on their heads and made their way back down the path.
Mancha Blanca-Caldera Blanca
DISTANCE: 10 kilometres TYPE: Circular route
DIFFICULTY: Medium DURATION: 3½ hours
An incredible route where you can enjoy the unique landscape between volcanoes. The journey of this adventure will take you to the heights of the majestic Caldera Blanca, where you will see amazing white, orange, russet and green tones. The best panoramic views of the crater and surrounding area can be seen from the path on the left side of the edge of the volcano up to the highest point (458 meters).
In our reception we have various Lanzarote Hiking Guides with complete information about the hikes and the flora and fauna of Lanzarote. Don’t hesitate to ask for them during your stay!
