A Journey to Lanzarote
A key feature of Lanzarote that one can notice from afar, even high up in the plane, are the white houses. Not a single building is of a different color. That is due to the excess chalk production on the island. Another distinctive feature of Lanzarote are the long cycling routes along the main car roads. Perfect for cyclists who want to train, and do not slow down the traffic.
The prickly Cactus garden, one of the myriad creations of César Manrique on this island is worth checking out. And if you are feeling brave, try a succulent cactus burger at the restaurant. The pink buns and green paddy might not look appealing but the taste is uniquely different. Along with the locally made luscious cactus and aloe vera jam.
The Mirador del Río offers a jaw-dropping gorgeous view of the northern seacoast as well as the neighbouring island, La Graciosa. Make sure to bring your camera or mobile phone as you walk along the breath-taking pedestrian pathway.
Timanfaya National Park’s rocky landscape was created by volcanic eruptions in the 1730s. Cueva de los Verdes has caverns formed by an underground river of lava. East-coast resort Puerto del Carmen is home to whitewashed villas, beaches and dive centers.
