Know More about this tour

Book your half-day or full-day tour and start your experience with a pickup from Puerto del Carmen, Costa Teguise, Playa Blanca, Puerto Calero or Arrecife meeting points. Then, travel south by air-conditioned coach. Your route and destinations depend on the tour option you choose. Both finish with a hotel drop-off.

Half-Day Tour:
Travel through the village of Uga on your way to Timanfaya National Park. Stop here for an optional camel ride (own expense) and follow the Route of the Volcanoes, twisting round the slopes for grandstand views. Hear about the 18th-century eruptions that formed the surrounding cones and calderas and witness geothermic experiments; you can watch bundles of branches go up in flames within seconds of being tossed into fire pits.

Head out of the park to see the vine-coated fields in the fertile La Geria winemaking region and learn how the island’s crisp and fruity wines, made from the malvasia grapes, are cultivated. Then, head for a winery to sample a glass for yourself! Afterward, rejoin your coach for your return journey.

Full-Day Tour:
After traveling through Uga and Timanfaya National Park to see the geothermal demonstrations, follow the Route of the Volcanoes to see some of the more spectacular lava formations as your guide explains how they were formed by past eruptions.

Enjoy a camel ride (own expense) and continue to the park’s lava-carved west coast where El Golfo, a jewel-green lagoon, awaits. Pause at the Janubio salt pans and see Los Hervideros, an area where waves have hollowed out craggy grottoes into the coastline.

Next, continue to the idyllic winemaking region of La Geria. See the vineyards where Lanzarote’s malvasia grape varietals are grown, and learn how they’re cultivated using the unique climate and landscape. Visit a winery to sample some wine and return to your coach for a drop-off at the meeting point.

  • Amazing scenery, highly recommend this trip to anyone. The tour guide was friendly and funny, the coach was clean and air conditioned... Views I'll never forget and our 4 year old enjoyed it too.
    Take sandwiches as the lunch stop is busy and by the time you get served you'll have little time to eat.

  • Excellent trip offering a variety of experiences.

  • Bus was on time and picked me up directly opposite my hotel- guide Maria welcomed me with a smile, was super friendly and even introduced me to a friend of hers who was also travelling solo - which was greatly appreciated and made the trip even more enjoyable! The national park is a must see!

  • Awful trip.Tour guide was hard to understand, rude and impatient. The tour itself took us to the same cafe twice, the actual volcano was a rushed experience and the final stop to the vineyard a waste of time. A 15 mins stop with no info about it, no grapes just a shot of horrible wine! Wasted day!

  • What you see on this tour is great - camels were good fun, the volcano visit was interesting and the winery was worth a look. However, it is so rushed in parts volcano visit and winery in particular that you don't get the chance to take it in. We weren't allowed to eat on the coach fair enough but there was no time built in anywhere for the kids to even wolf down a sandwich - they ended up hungry and whining. Not good for a family tour. I would not recommend it - rent a car and do it yourself instead.

  • Very good trip with great views. The driver was excellent. The meal stop was poor as the food was not good and the staff were surly and disinterested. The wine stop was even worse! We have enjoyed some very good Lanzarote wines but not these!

  • The trip itself was REALLY neat! However, the tickets that I received said that we were to be at our bus stop at 12 p.m. When we called, we found out that we were supposed to be there at 9 a.m. Fortunately we had another day available and we were able to take it the next day, but we missed out on an opportunity to do any other tours while we were there since by the time we knew we missed it, it was too late to book anything else!

  • A very nice day spent in South Lanzarote, the trip was very well organised and all credit goes to the guide - Radmilla - she was brilliant and gave us a lot of information throughout the day.

  • Excellent trip especially the demonstrations of the underground heat.Guide was very informative and the meal superb.

  • This trip was taken with our family of 4. We have two teenage boys. We were picked up at our resort and taken to the the meeting location for out bus. This was a big, double-decker bus. I'm not a fan of the BIG tour buses. I prefer the little 15-20 person van tours. The size of the tour is my only complaint about this tour, but that is just personal preference. I did not see any of the smaller tour vans while on this island so don't think it is an option at this location. We enjoyed getting info about our location and seeing the must see local sights. The guide was friendly and knowledgeable and spoke at least 3 languages. Without the info provided, we would have never guess that the vineyards WERE vineyards. They looked liked strange, semi-circular art projects.

    The driver was excellent. His skills alone make this tour a good choice. We saw many rental cars at the volcano park site. I would not have wanted to be driving those roads in a rental. They are very steep and curvy. I was very glad to relax and enjoy the scenery. Also, being a tour bus, we got to skip the long car lines on the way in and park close to the building for that portion of the tour. If you have never seen a volcano before, this is a good choice. Since the island has had multiple eruptions over the years, there were many different types of formations to be seen during the drive through volcano country.
