Trips & Trekking

Tear yourself away from Seaside Los Jameos for a day or two to explore Lanzarote. Our island is packed with things to do and see, from charming villages and mind-blowing volcanic landscapes to breathtaking treks and caves touched by César Manrique.


Eruptions in the 18th century gave rise to this spellbinding, living volcanic landscape. See the extraordinary scenery on a camel ride or a bus tour of La Ruta de los Volcanes.
