Know More about this tour

After a pickup from Puerto del Carmen, Playa Blanca, Costa Teguise, Puerto Calero or Arrecife meeting points, travel onward through Teguise village, the island’s ancient capital. Admire its historical architecture and hear about Teguise in the 16th century when the village is thought to have been founded.

Continue to Peñas del Chach, one of the island’s highest peaks, near the cliffs of Famara on the island’s northwestern shores. Hop out of your coach for a photo, and gaze down at views of the undulating coastline set against the blue waves of the North Atlantic Ocean. With your guide, look out for the oasis of Haria, a lush little area known locally as the Valley of a Thousand Palms. Locals traditionally plant palm trees at the spot to mark the birth of a child.

Visit Lagomar, one of the island's most renowned places which is a museum, art gallery, bar and restaurant. This astonishing property was conceived by Cesar Manrique, Lanzarote's greatest artist and architect. Its design was based on the One Thousand and One Arabian Nights tale, with its white stone walls integrated into the volcanic scenery and vegetation of the area.

Afterwards, head to Orzola and visit LanzaAloe. Here, see acres of fragrant aloe vera plants being grown and harvested. Learn about the soothing properties of the plants and hear how the Canary Islands’ climate and terrain is well suited to aloe vera production.

Follow up with a visit to Jameos del Agua, an idyllic beach cave on the coast. Complete with shops, cafes, subterranean walkways and a volcanic museum, the cave-turned-resort was designed by local artist Manrique. Enjoy some free time to explore, and then travel to your final stop, the César Manrique Foundation. Entrance to the small museum is at your own expense, but the displays are well worth the fee. See how the artist adapted five volcanic bubbles into rooms at his house, and learn all about his life’s work on the island.

In the late afternoon, return to southern Lanzarote and finish your day with a drop-off at the meeting point.

  • It was a great overall tour of the island. Gives you a flavour of the whole Island

  • Enjoyed the experience but, took over 1 hour to travel around picking up other people before we started.

  • The North and south tour was wel organised and we saw all the things you need to see when you're in Lanzarote.

  • interesting and worth a look but the Travel through the ancient capital of Teguise village and learn about its history is a bit misleading as it didn't happen on the trip that said go on the Sunday market trip to Teguise instead it is well worth the effort.
    Very orientated to César Manrique who is probably not that well known outside the canaries.

    The foundation/house visit is the highlight of the trip but as its included on the Sunday market trip I would do that tour instead.

    whilst the Tour is interesting it doesn't teach you much about the North end of the Island and its history just focusing on the artist so perhaps the Cesar Manrique tour would be a more honest name for the trip

    For travellers with mobility issues there are a lot of steps so perhaps this could be reflected in the description.

    Similar trips on Fuerteventura and Tenerife have shown more about local history and people's lives

    that said the guide was very knowledgeable on the artist and the sites visited and very helpful.

    Overall a bit disappointed

  • Great trip, would definitely recommend. Just a few tweaks needed to make it perfect. Firstly, a longer stop needed at the fantastic Lagomar, 30 minutes is just not enough. Less time needed at Jameos del Agua, not enough to see for the 1 hour stop. Don't bother with the lunch, the place is packed with tourist coaches and people, not a pleasant experience.

  • Totally worth the money! We saw most of the tourist attractions that are famous in a day, also visited the aloe farm. If you want to see the main attractions of the North in a day, then this is a good option. I was however, disappointed with lunch. No veg option really, so the money was a waste. Even for non-veg people, the food didn't look too appetizing. I would recommend you take some sandwiches.
    Happy with the tour guide. Learned and saw a lot in one day. Comfortable coach ride. Easy pick up and drop off near our hotel.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • I loved this tour, the guide was fantastic and fun. The driver was very good felt very safe. By going on this tour i was able to see lots of the area in such a short time, which as a photographer was great. Thank you

  • Great trip with interesting informative stops. Plenty of stops for a drink and loo if needed. Children enjoyed it but got a bit tired towards the end as it was almost 8hrs from pick up to drop off. Well worth going on this trip

  • Good full day trip and was able to see most of the features on the northern part of the island
