Lanzarote Information

0051Lanzarote is located approximately 80 km form the north African coast and is the most easterly of the Canary Islands. The island is 37 miles (60km) long and 12 miles (20 km) wide, making it the fourth largest island in the Canaries. The island enjoys an all year round ambient climate making for a great holiday destination.

As with the other Canary Islands, Lanzarote is Volcanic in origin. Due to the recent eruptions during the 18th and 19th Centuries, many parts of Lanzarote appear to be from another world, often described as ‘lunar’ or ‘Martian’.

The dry climate and  lack of erosion means that the Volcanic Landscape appears much as it did just after the eruptions.

Amongst the many stunning Volcanic features of Lanzarote is the longest Volcanic Tunnel in the world, the Atlantida Tunnel, which is over 7 km long found in the north of the island at the Green caves and Jameos Del Agua

Despite the Volcanic nature of the island, Lanzarote has several beautiful white beaches the most stunning being in the south of the Island at  Papagayo.

Flight time for the Uk is around four hours and this makes a great holiday get away with the guarantee of lovely weather all year round.
