Lanzarote holidays promise warm breezes and dry climate, perfect for days at the beach. Here you’ll find the largest aquarium in the Canaries, theme parks, waterparks and memorable experiences such as a camel ride to the Fire Mountains. Away from the beautiful beaches of the coast, Lanzarote’s interior offers sheer drama with its lunar volcanic landscapes.

Take a camel ride through the lava fields of Timanfaya National Park and you’ll soon see why they’re nicknamed Fire Mountains. It’s one of the best places in Lanzarote to appreciate the jaw-dropping wonder of this volcanic region. Craters simmer with heat and water instantly becomes steam when poured into the ground. The small hamlet of El Golfo, on the west coast, is home to one of the most fascinating attractions in Lanzarote. High volcanic cliffs surround a small crater lagoon, Lago Verde, which certainly lives up to its name - you’re unlikely to see a more emerald shade of green.

Incredibly clear waters make scuba diving one of the most popular activities in Lanzarote. All levels are catered for in the numerous dive centres around the island. Take advantage of the sea’s remarkable visibility and get a close-up view of moray eels, rays and groupers. Explore the reefs in the shallows before going down to underwater canyons as well as the wrecks of Los Erizos near Puerta del Carmen. Back on dry land, get on two wheels to discover some of the more peaceful places in Lanzarote. Bike trails meander through lava fields while you take in spectacular views of the sea.

You’ve never seen vineyards like the ones in La Geria, where some delicious wines are produced in one of the most unusual places in Lanzarote. From the air it looks like giant horseshoes have been dropped on a black volcanic valley, each crescent containing a single vine. Take a wine-tasting tour round the wine cellars, called bodegas, and try the latest vintages of Malvasía and Moscatel. Nibble some tapas at bodegas that double up as restaurants, like El Chupadero, and relish the flavours of these rare wines you’re not likely to find once you get home.

The weather is still mild in the winter so it’s a great time to visit if you want to escape the crowds, while autumn is the best time to swim in the sea.

For the ladies: Lanzarote’s biggest fiesta takes place every September during Nuestra Señora de los Volcanes. Over several days, women from all over the island make a pilgrimage dressed in traditional clothes to the village of Mancha Blanca. Their reward is a massive party that lasts until the small hours.
