The best Lanzarote Tours and Excursions
With its natural volcanic landscape and year round sunshine, Lanzarote offers some of the best tours and excursions in Europe. From volcanic tours to breathtaking views and 400m cliff faces and Cactus Gardens to lively artisan markets, we have the very best Lanzarote excursions for everyone.
If you're not sure what there is to see and do in Lanzarote, the best option is to take an organised trip or tour. That way, you can be assured you won't be missing out on any 'must see Lanzarote attractions', you'll have an organised inventory and transport from and to your hotel and you'll also get an expert guide, with in-depth Lanzarote knowledge, throughout the excursion providing you with information throughout the tour.
Lanzarote Excursions are available as different packages. You can book a 'North Island' tour which takes in the sights of Lag-O-Mar, The Cactus Gardens and La Graciosa, or a 'South Island' tour visiting the Timanfaya National Park, El Golfo and Los Hervideros. You can choose from a full day tour, or a half day tour, so it's easy to work them around your holiday plans and most important of all you can arrange for pick-up and drop-off at your hotel.
There are so many things to do in Lanzarote, and so many ways to see the number of amazing attractions on the island. We highly recommend booking and reserving your Lanzarote excursions in advance to avoid disappointment.
The Timanfaya National Park
The jewel in the crown of things to see in Lanzarote has to be the Timanfaya National Park. Located on the west coast of the island, this area was completely devastated by volcanic eruptions in the 1700 and 1800's. The park exhibits an array of colours, lava made sculptures and rock faces that make you feel like you're on the moon and there is no better way to experience it than the Timanfaya National Park Excursion.
Be amazed by the thermal activity, just meters below your feet, and take in the dramatic surroundings as your embark on a coach tour on the Luna route and see first hand, the beauty that has been created by past devastation. If someone asks us what is top of our list of things to do in Lanzarote, we always recommend the Timanfaya National Park tour as the 'must do' excursion.
The Timanfaya National Park Grand Tour
As an extension to the Timanfaya National Park Excursion, the Timanfaya National Park Grand Tour also takes in the Lanzarote Volcanoes, El Golfo and the green lake and the camels, before heading North to Los James del Agua and contrasting Landscapes of the East of the Island. The Timanfaya National Park Grand Tour is a full day excursion and ideal for holiday-makers that want to see the sights, whilst leaving plenty of time for relaxing in the warm Lanzarote sunshine.
Lanzarote Volcano South Tour
This full day Lanzarote excursion is a favourite with holidaymakers, taking in some of the wonderful Lanzarote attractions in the south of the island. Visit The Timanfaya National Park and ride the Luna route whilst taking in the dramatic Lanzarote volcanic scenery, visit the beautiful village of El Golfo and the Charco de los Clicos (Green Lagoon), learn how the famous Lanzarote wine is created and how they cultivate grapes in such a dry climate and experience the rough seas meeting the volcanic landscape at Los Hervideros. On this full day LanzaroteVolcano South Tour excursion you will stop off for lunch and have the chance to experience a camel ride (if you wish!)
Camel Rides in Lanzarote
Fun for all the family. If you're looking for something a little different, then the Lanzarote Camel Rides could be just the ticket. The Camel rides are included in most of the Timanfaya National Park tours, but if it's just the Camel ride you're looking for then it can be done as a standalone excursion. You will be collected from your hotel, and taken to the Camel Ride centre directly, before enjoying a ride around the Timanfaya National Park. Once the ride is finished the bus will return you back to your hotel. It's the perfect excursion for anyone just wanting to experience a Camel Ride in Lanzarote without visiting other attractions.
Lanzarote Volcano Short South Tour
This half-day Lanzarote excursion is popular with those who want to discover the south of the island whilst not taking up a full day of their Lanzarote holiday. This tour takes in the Volcanoes of The Timanfaya National Park and gives you the chance to ride the camels. The half day Lanzarote tour to the Timanfaya National Park will pick you up from your accommodation and have you back in time for lunch. The Timanfaya Park is an absolute 'must visit' when you're in Lanzarote.
Discover the North of the island with the Lanzarote North Tour
If you're looking for an escape from the holiday resorts and want to experience the 'real' Lanzarote then the Lanzarote North Tour could be just right for you. The North of Lanzarote is very different to the south of the island. At a higher altitude the land is often much greener and it can be a little cooler but don't let that detract you from visiting. The North of Lanzarote offers some very exciting attractions such as Mirador del Rio. Take in the views over the neighbouring island of La Graciosa from a cliffside lookout, at an altitude of 400m! See the rare blind albino crabs at Los Jameos del Agua, an attraction built into a real Lava tunnel and witness the 'real' Lanzarote as you visit traditional Canarian villages and stop off for lunch. The Lanzarote North Tour is a great way of exploring the island, but it's not the only way. If you fancy something a little more exciting why not take a look at the 4x4 North Tour which takes things to a whole new level. Explore Lanzarote 'off the beaten track' and discover parts of the island you will have never seen before.
If you're keen to get out and see everything that Lanzarote has to offer why not book the North and South tours on consecutive days? Each tour is a full day, and allows you to see the key attractions in each part of the island.
Cesar Manrique Lanzarote tours
César Manrique is a name that is very closely linked with Lanzarote. An architect, artist and visionary who is sadly no longer with us, but his legacy lives on through the many attractions he was involved in designing and building. You won't go far in Lanzarote without coming across the work of César Manrique. The César Manrique Lanzarote tour provides the perfect way to discover the very best of the work of Manrique, visiting his most famous creations and stopping off at; Monumento Al Campesino, Green Caves or Jameos Del Aqua, Cesar Manrique Foundation, Haria (the Valley of 1000 palms), Mirador Del Rio Viewpoint and The Cactus Gardens. If you're interested in the history of Lanzarote, and the work of César Manrique, the César Manrique Lanzarote tour is not to be missed.
Lanzarote tours to the Green Caves (Cueva de los Verdes)
Experience a guided tour through part of the longest lava tunnel in Lanzarote. The Green Caves tour is a great way to see a natural wonder, created by lava flow from the nearby Volcano La Corona between 3000 and 5000 years ago as it made its way out to sea. Although the lava tunnel is over 6km long, the public only get to see a small section which has been expertly designed and created to make for an amazing attraction.
Teguise Market Tours in Lanzarote
Once a week, the sleepy villa of Teguise comes alive as it hosts the largest open air market in the Canary Islands and we have the very best Teguise Market Excursion for you. Here you will find many local traders selling their hand crafted goods and products to tourists who flock from all over Europe (and beyond). The tiny streets of Teguise are lined with stall after stall of artisan offerings and you can be sure to pick up a bargain or two (just make sure it will fit in the suitcase!). You will find anything from locally produced foods, Jams, sauces, leather goods, Aloe Vera products and jewellery. And don't worry about taking the whole family as there really is something for everyone at Teguise Market! There are many ways you can get to Teguise Market, but an organised Excursion will pick you up from your hotel, take you directly to Teguise and then return you safely. No need for using the Sat Nav or wasting precious shopping time getting lost!
Private Lanzarote tours
If you prefer to experience Lanzarote in your own family 'bubble' but you haven't got a car, a private tour is a great option for you. There are many trips and excursions in Lanzarote that offer more of a one-2-one service such as the 4x4 Lanzarote South Tour that takes in the mighty scenery of the Timanfaya National Park. If you prefer to tailor a trip to your own design there are private tours in Lanzarote that do just that.
