Volcano Express Lanzarote
The best day out of our entire holiday. We got to see all the best sites, including Timanfaya national park, el Golfo and the green lagoon. A fab lunch of fresh fish, then on to the wine region for some vino, by this time we were ready for the cool surroundings of Jameos del Agua, a really cool place both in temperature and in style. And the view from the ‘look out’ spot was the best I’ve ever seen here.Milvern family, Colchester

Duration: Full day
After bus pick-up from the different tourist areas, we leave Corralejo harbour on a regular ferry heading towards Playa Blanca in Lanzarote. There a guide is waiting for us to begin our volcanic adventure.
The first stop is at the Aloe Vera museum and interpretation centre in the town of Yaiza where they will show us the cultivation and production processes and the properties of this miracle plant.
Then, we will head towards the Timanfaya National Park. Prepare yourselves to enjoy the unique experience of feeling the volcanic activity of the Fire Mountains!
Timanfaya is a vast natural space designed by the volcanic activity that took place at the end of the 18th century that at the present has 25 volcanoes that have some activity only asleep: in some areas the surface temperatures exceeding 100ªC. We will have the opportunity to witness the geothermal experiments that take place during the visit to the “Route of the Volcanoes”.
We will continue along the remote volcanic coast towards the endearing fishing town of El Golfo, where you will be able to visit the famous Green Lake or Lago de Los Clicos a natural lagoon with greenish water due to the action of algae after filtering seawater. We will also pass by Los Hervideros, a large volcanic tube that has formed over the years and allows you to see the natural spectacle of waves breaking against the lava.
To conclude our route, we will visit one of La Geria’s famous wine cellar where you can taste an authentic Lanzarote malvasía wine (optional).
Back in Playa Blanca, the boat will wait for us for the journey back to Corralejo, where we will arrive around 17.00 pm.
