Fascinating Lanzarote is truly extraordinary. Its fate was decided some two and one-half centuries ago, when the largest volcanic eruption in recorded history took place, leaving a strange and alluring countryside in its wake-a landscape littered with volcanoes and dark streams of jagged lava. This is the backdrop to nearly every scene on the island, and intriguing sights abound-none more so than the "Fire Mountains."
As for walking in Lanzarote, there is no better place in the Canaries for just strolling; ramblers will be in their element here. Each of the walks in this book takes you to a different corner of the island and shows you a scenically different outlook. But if walking is not your favorite pastime, then do explore Lanzarote by car.
Neighboring Fuerteventura is just 15 minutes away by fast ferry, so the book includes a day out on that island, with a car tour covering the northern half. There is also a walk on the tiny island of Lobos, which can be reached from either Lanzarote or Fuerteventura.
3 car tours (with accompanying touring maps for Lanzarote and northern Fuerteventura), 40 long and short walks (each with 1:50,000 topo map), 15 picnic suggestions. Plans of Arrecife, Puerto del Carmen, Playa Blanca. Free online update service with specific route change information on the publisher's website, maintained daily.
