Lanzarote is the most unusual and astonishing island in the Canaries. Visitors can enjoy the wide variety of landscapes and attractions to explore on the “mystical island”: the Timanfaya National Park with its impressive volcanoes, the La Geria region with its green vineyards on black soil, Papagayo with its golden-sandy beaches, El Golfo with its green lagoon in a collapsed crater and the Risco de Famara with its endless beach stretching out below the cliff.
UNESCO Biosphere Reserve
Lanzarote’s landscape is the result of many years of struggles by mankind to dominate the harsh climate and geology of the area. Farming and fishing have been carried out in balance with the environment and have become a sign of cultural and landscape identity. Lanzarote was declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1993.
Visitors to Lanzarote should not miss the art and cultural centres scattered throughout the island. Most of them were designed by the famous Lanzarote-born artist Cesar Manrique, and they are a fascinating symbiosis between natural beauty and intelligent architecture.
Lanzarote enjoys a pleasant, sunny climate all year round. Sunshine and temperatures between 20 and 25 degrees are normal in the “Isles of Eternal Spring”. Any time of the year is ideal for taking a trip, trying out one of the outdoor sports activities on offer or enjoying the marvellous beaches.
