Your cycling tour in Lanzarote

A unique ride through some of the most dramatic landscapes to be found in Europe. Lanzarote suffered a series of eruptions in the 18th century and as a result has some fascinating landscapes with volcanoes and lava flows everywhere. The architectural works of César Manrique form a valuable complement to the volcanic environment and are a must. The benign climate, neither hot in summer nor cold in winter, means that cycling is possible all year round.

Day 1 : Arrival in Costa Teguise


Today you arrive and settle into your hotel in Costa Teguise. According to your arrival time, you can spend the rest of the day enjoying the beach resort.

Day 2 : Costa Teguise - Haría | 25, 33, 46 or 51 km


Today you ride from Costa Teguise to the inland town of Haría. You have the opportunity to visit Manrique’s famous works such as La Cueva de los Verdes, Los Jameos del Agua, El Mirador del Río which form an integral part of the volcanic landscape. You take in fishing villages without losing sight of the impressive Monte Corona. Finally you arrive in the picturesque village of Haría surrounded by its uncountable palm trees.

Day 3 : Haría – Teguise (or San Bartolomé) | 20/25 or 50km


From Haría, you take the road down towards Teguise, the one-time capital of the island. Route gives you spectacular views down over the coast. Teguise itself is a delightful small town with typical architecture and many pleasant bars for refreshment. From here you continue towards San Bartolomé and the fascinating wine-producing area of La Geria. You then return to your hotel in Teguise (or San Bartolomé according to availability).

Day 4 : Teguise (or San Bartolomé) | free day (optional stage of 50km)


Today is a free day spent in your hotel. You can choose to relax, or enjoy a round ride, or even both. Your round ride takes you towards the beautiful beach of Famara with the spectacular backdrop of volcanic cliffs. After following the coast, you head across extensive lava fields and a lunar landscape back to Teguise (or San Bartolomé according to availability).

Day 5 : Teguise (or San Bartolomé) – Playa Blanca | 55 or 65km


From Teguise (or San Bartolomé) you head towards the island’s main attraction, the Parque Nacional de Timanfaya. The eruptions of 1730 – 1736 buried a quarter of the whole island and gave rise to the impressive lava and volcano landscape that you see today. From here you head down to the south of the island, stopping to visit the seaside volcanic crater of El Golfo before you finally reach the seaside village of Playa Blanca.

Day 6 : Playa Blanca | free day


Playa Blanca sits at the very south of the island and looks across to Fuerteventura. Today you can take a boat (not included) across to Corralejo and enjoy a visit or a ride on Fuerteventura (round rides of differing lengths are possible). Alternatively, you can enjoy a day in Playa Blanca and take the opportunity to visit the nearby coves and beaches of Papagayo, the best on the island and unspoilt by tourism.

Day 7 : Playa Blanca – Arrecife | 45km


From Playa Blanca, you head across the dramatic hills of Femés before heading to the wine country of La Geria. Here, the unusual vineyard cultivation techniques have given rise to a fascinating landscape not to be seen anywhere else in the world, and producing some fine wines. You then descend to the coast and follow a nice promenade from Puerto del Carmen to Arrecife.
