Lanzarote is the most northeastern of the Canary Islands with a total area of 862 square kilometers. It is located 1,000 kilometers from the Iberian Peninsula and 130 kilometers from the African coast. Throughout the year, the island has a mild climate with an average temperature of 22 degrees Celsius. Visitors can reach Arrecife, the capital of Lanzarote, in about four hours by plane from Germany, Austria or Switzerland.
Volcanic lunar landscapes, wide Atlantic beaches with crystal clear water, sumptuous vegetation and white villages characterize Lanzarote. The crater landscape in Lanzarote’s national park Timanfaya is very impressive, with its more than 30 fire mountains and bizarre rock formations in the southwest of the island. Numerous beaches with golden sand and with black volcanic sand are available.
Lanzarote offers ideal conditions for runners, cyclists, surfers, sailors and divers all year round. For golf, there are two 18-hole golf courses. Wine lovers are also in good hands here: In the interior of the island in La Geria as well as in Masdache and in the north in Ye-Lajares D.O., where wine with protected designation of origin is cultivated. The red and white wines can be tasted in the wine cellars along the wine route. Other local products include olive oil, sea salt from the Janubio salt flats, vegetables, fruit, fish and sheep and goat cheese. In the north of the island, the Chinjo archipelago with the islands of La Graciosa, Alegranza, Montaña Clara, Roque del Este and Roque del Oeste invites you to explore.
