The Volcanic Eruptions
Lanzarote is a volcanic island, as well as all the canary islands. The last eruptions took place in 1824 lasting for few months.
Between 1730 and 1736 Lanzarote suffered the longest volcanic eruptions of the Canaries. They destroyed dozens of villages, hamlets and fields transforming a huge part of the southern territory of the island.
If you love geology and volcanoes and if you wish to discover landscapes from “another planet” this is the perfect activity for you. I offer different options to enjoy the south part of Lanzarote combining guided tours, hiking adventure and nature. We will visit all those places directly affected by the 18th century volcanic eruptions:
– the southwestern coast of Lanzarote, from the Janubio saltpans area to the villge of El Golfo, where you can visit the well-known “green lagoon”.
– The Timanfaya National Park plus a guided walk through the Volcanoes Natural Park .
