GRAND TOUR

This is a combination of the highlights from the north and south tours.

This great day out takes you to the beautiful bay of El Golfo, where the Olivin stone was discovered.

You will see the rugged coastline of Los Hervideros and the salt flats of Janubio, where you will learn about the importance of salt extraction in the island's history. We make our way towards the Timanfaya National Park, home to Fire Mountain.

    LOS HERVIDEROS

Here you will see the geothermal experiments, demonstrating the immense power of the heat just below the surface. You will have time go into the natural oven, where food is cooked, and to have a look around before the coach takes you on the magnificent crater tour with the best views of the lava fields.

A tasty, three-course lunch is enjoyed in a typical canarian village before journeying through La Geria, home to the most unusual vineyards in the world. You will learn of the history and process of the wine-making with the opportunity to taste the wines and to buy them on site.

Passing the monument Al Campesino, in the centre of the island, we head northbound, though Teguise, the ancient capital, arriving at the highest point, Peņas del Chache (670m). From this viewpoint, you will be able to take photos of the north-east coastline and Haria, the valley of 1000 palms. Through the winding roads we make our way to the mirador of Guinate, another spectacular viewpoint. This looks out onto the Chinijo Islands; Alegranza, Montaņa Clara and La Graciosa (the latter being the only one inhabited).

Our visit to Los Jameos del Agua is a great end to the day. Here, the gifted Cesar Manrique has left his mark. Enchanting subterranean gardens and the magnificent auditorium are examples of the artist's genuis. Los Jameos is also the home to the blind albino crab. Don't forget to look around 'La Casa de los Volcanes', dedicated to volcanology studies. You will be back at your pick-up points at around 6.30pm.

PLEASE NOTE: NO CAMEL RIDE on this excursion, but we do stop for you to photograph the camels.
