This hike takes place where was once the primary island of Lanzarote, one of the oldest geological areas of the Canary Islands: Natural Monument of Los Ajaches

The journey begins at the small village of Fémes and after a short ascent we reach Pico de los Cuervos (452 m). Then we carry on walking along the rim of Fémes Valley until we get close to Pico Naos (429 m).

In this point we will enjoy beautiful views of Fuerteventura and Timanfaya National Park, then we begin our descent through Barranco del Valle where the landscape is sliced up by ravines and hidden valleys. These barren and parched mountains are one of the most dramatic landscapes of Lanzarote.

Once we reach Playa del Pozo we head towards Playa Quemada village walking along the coast to enjoy the light breeze of the Atlantic Ocean.

In this walk you are unlikely to see another soul but a goatheard…and lizards (Galliota atlantica). The vegetation is represented by aulagas (Launaea arborescens), tobacco plant (Nicotiana glauca) and tabaibas (Euphorbia regis-jubae).
