Designated by UNESCO as a World Biosphere Preserve, the picturesque Isla de Lanzarote has an unusual volcanic terrain and lunar-reminiscent landscape that leave surprises at every turn. Lanzarote
will not disappoint travelers yearning for breathtaking ecotourist attractions. Lanzarote plays host to a staggering 300 volcanoes, thus earning the nickname the 'Land of a Thousand Volcanoes.' Extensive lava fields at Timanfaya National Park bear echoes of the violent volcanic activity that yielded Isla de Lanzarote. If the geologic forces that continually etch the extraordinary landscape of Lanzarote
fascinate you, you shouldn't miss the massive, smoldering volcanic craters found throughout the island.
Explore subterranean volcanic tunnels through lava tubes created by molten lava. Los Jameos del Agua is the most widely visited lava tube in Lanzarote
, owing to the sparkling blue lake that lies in its center and its development by Canarian artist Cesar Manrique in 1968. Volcanoes and frozen lava rivers are not the only places worth seeing in Lanzarote
. The paradise island is home to miles of white-sand beaches and gorgeous coastline. Windsurfing, parasailing, scuba diving, and other forms of water sports are some of the most exciting ways to enjoy the refreshing turquoise waters in Lanzarote. And if all that exploring and adventure seeking leave you flushed, you can always relax to the rejuvenating comforts of luxurious Lanzarote villas
and Lanzarote hotels
that are a paradise within themselves.
