Days Out, Adventures & Excursions on Lanzarote

There are lots of different ways in which tourists can explore Lanzarote – utilising a number of different methods of transportation too.  And whilst all of our villas are very well appointed and offer lots of facilities and amenities to keep you entertained we always recommend to guests that they spend at least a day away from the pool to discover what this unique island has to offer.

Getting Around

 

Public Bus, Lanzarote

On The Buses

 

There are public bus services on Lanzarote and they are cheap and reliable. The only downside is that many of the main attractions are not easy to each by public transport – and even when they are you can still spend a good amount of time just hanging around as the services in outlying areas away from the main resorts are simply not that regular.

Why waste any of your valuable holiday time on something as mundane as sitting in a bus stop? On Lanzarote car hire is cheap, starting at about €20 per day, whilst fuel is also much better value than in the UK and Eire too. If you fancy touring at a more sedate pace you can also hire scooters and bikes – although the latter can prove to be hard work especially during the hotter months.

Choosing A Guided Tour

For those who don’t want to do any driving at all there are a number of companies on Lanzarote offering excursions around the island, such as Last Minute, Customer Travel and Lanzarote Experience. As well as the more recently launched TUI initiative. The Lanzarote Vision Bus, which offers hop on and off island wide access.

All of these companies essentially offer variations on a similar theme in terms of their guided tour packages. Commonly offering a South Tour that takes in highlights such as The Timanfaya National Park and the Boiling Pots at Los Hervidores, a North Tour that explores most of Manrique’s main creations such as the Jamoes del Agua and the Mirador del Rio and a Grand Tour which basically combines the two.

These basic offerings are then augmented by a range of more specialist trips, such as a Cesar Manrique special which covers off the artist’s former home and studio in Tahiche, in addition to all of his main attractions, guided tours to the weekly market at Teguise each Sunday and excursions to neighbouring islands such as La Graciosa and Fuerteventura.

Expect to pay between around €40 and €50 per adult per trip, a cost that usually includes lunch, admissions and transport to and from your pick up point.

Sea Based Excursions

 

Submarine Safaris, Lanzarote

Underwater Adventures

 

As you´d expect on an island there´s also a number of sea based trips – which provide a welcome respite from the heat during the summer months and plenty of fun at all times of the year.

The two best known excursions are both based in the marina at Puerto Calero. Submarine Safaris take guests on a voyage of undersea discovery on board their multimillion dollar craft. Whilst the Catlanza catamaran glides on the waves down to the amazing beaches at Papagayo, where they drop anchor whilst guests enjoy free jet ski rides and snorkelling. Both of these day trips are ideal for families too, especially the Sub Safaris tour as kids love to view the amazing array of sea life that are present in the waters around Lanzarote.
