Half day tour visiting the north of Lanzarote in a journey with great cultural, historic and scenic interests.

One of the highlights of the tour is the visit to Jameos del Agua, the most important public space designed by the local artist César Manrique, one of the “must to see” of Lanzarote. Manrique created an underground tropical garden at the interior of a enormous volcanic tunnel shaped by the lavas of La Corona volcano leaving us a place of special beauty.

The tour includes the visit to another Manrique´s work: Mirador del Rio, Lanzarote´s most famous viewpoint. This construction is perfectly integrated on the surronding area and located at 482 meters above sea level allows us enjoy enjoy breathtaking views of Famara Cliffs and the Archipelago Chinijo, the largest Marine Reserve in Europe.

On this excursion we also see two important villages of Lanzarote: Haria and Teguise.

We drive through the village of Haria, a charming village surronded by lush green fields and colorful meadows located at the One Thousand Palm Tree Valley and we visit the former capital of Lanzarote: Villa de Teguise, one of the oldest european settlements in the Canary Islands. In our stroll around the cobbled streets you will learn about the history of Lanzarote, when Landlords and Pirates were the protagonists.
