Ahhh, Lanzarote: The Canary Island paradise where you can ride a camel into the sunset and then dine inside a candlelit cave. The rock formations of Los Hervideros will take your breath away, as will the views from the Mirador del Rio lookout point. Legend has it that locals would hide from pirates in the underground caverns of Cueva de los Verdes, which are now open to curious visitors. Above ground the Jardin de Cactus will teach you all about the spiny desert plants.

The house museum of José Saramago, Nobel Prize for Literature in 1998 is a real immersion in the universe of the Portuguese writer. The guided tour includes first the house and the garden, then the private library and its various work spaces.
A fabulous intimate tour of Jose Saramago’s home in Lanzarote. Alba our guide was informative and only too pleased to answer questions in Spanish, English and French. Walking through his home and library, seeing where he worked, rested and entertained was privilege. I loved his library built to house all and his wife’s books. Allow and hour and a half and make sure you are there for opening at 10.

I was looking for an RYA Training Center in the Canary Islands where I could do my Yachtmaster prep week and exam. After writing emails to probably every RYA sailing school in the Canaries, I appreciated that Atlantic Sailing was handling my queries really professional from the first second onwards. They were the only ones who sent me a questionnaire to figure out how much time I need to successfully prepare for the Yachtmaster exam. And it turned out that their estimate was spot on. They do know their stuff, especially how to build and polish up your sailing skills towards an exam. I’ve done a lot of RYA courses in the recent years and I’ve rarely seen such dedicated people like Fadwa and Richard from Atlantic Sailing. They really care about their students and customers. And last but not least they are just pleasant people with whom I enjoyed spending time and setting sails off Lanzarote. Long story short, I passed my Yachtmaster Offshore Exam very well and I really recommend Atlantic Sailing to every one who wants to do their Yachtmaster certificate. I wish Atlantic Sailing always fair winds and hopefully I see you again soon!

Here for Christmas with the family and decided to try out the Escape Room in Arrecife. We chose Dead Land as our challenge. The hosts were lovely, welcoming and friendly, and we had lots of laughs (and a couple of family squabbles!) along the way, and with a little help from the organisers we managed to successfully escape. This is suitable for all ages, and highly recommended if you fancy something different or want to while away a cloudy afternoon. We’d love to go back and try the other challenges when we’re back in Lanzarote.

There aren’t many places that gather as many areas of interest for the cultural and natural heritage of Lanzarote as Cueva de los Verdes, a unique mythological-looking cave, full of legends and extraordinary landscape and beauty. It came about after the eruption of the Volcán de la Corona, and it’s one of the most impressive hidden wonders in the depths of Lanzarote. It was used as a hideout by the locals who needed shelter to protect themselves from invasions and attacks of pirates coming from the north of Africa during the 16th and 17th Centuries. In the 19th Century, it became a must for travellers, experts and European scientists due to the uniqueness of this volcanic territory, named after a family that kept their cattle in the area, the story goes
€9.50 per adult. We were there about an hour, some queuing time but not too bad. You have a guided tour ( more Spanish information than English) . A fascinating place with a twist at the end. Lovely no one has said what it is. Just watch your head in some places and wear decent footwear. If you are going by car be aware the road leading up to the caves is very narrow with passing places.

Home of a famous Spanish artist
Definitely the coolest place to visit on the island. Formed out of lava holes, it's like a 70s Bond film set - we loved it. Cesar Manrique has had a huge influence on the art and architecture on the island - there are some enlightening films to be seen here at his former home as well as much of his art on display. You only need 90 minutes to tour, including a cuppa / snack from the onsite mini cafe, so you may wish to combine it with another trip. We took a tour here with Low Cost Travel, who picked us up from our hotel before going to the Sunday market at Teguise. All was well described by a Danish tour guide.

Visiting the home of César Manrique was an interesting experience and gave us a great insight into his life and work. The home has been left so you can imagine him still living there. His taste and display of collected artefacts was delightful. Well worth a visit.

This is such a brilliant little museum, run by volunteers. It is housed in the original airport building and it is fascinating to see how things have changed in what is a relatively short period of time. A great deal of thought and effort has been put into setting up the museum and it's brilliant. You can see the air traffic control part, the cafe area as well as examples of the uniforms worn by the airline staff. There is a good book collection and some excellent posters as well as a very thought-provoking cabinet showing the kinds of items that were confiscated. When we visited there was also an excellent display of aircraft and airport related models, all made from recycled plastic. There were some excellent little booklets available too, aimed at children. It's a wonderful little museum.

Visited this centre following tour of the National Park. Well worth a visit and timed to experience a simulated volcanic eruption. There is no charge for this centre which was a surprise to us. Will recommend to all.

It does not matter what's your religion. This old chapel is believed to have been built because people prayed the 'Dolores Virgin' to stop the lava flow, and She did, according to the legend. As a favour, they constructed this shrine.
