When is the best time to travel to Lanzarote for 4 days?
The best months to visit Lanzarote are April, May, June, September, and October. Why? Mainly because the weather at this time is very pleasant and because there are fewer tourists. This allows you to:
- Enjoy beaches without crowds.
- Make outdoor excursions at a good temperature
- Visit places of interest and make the most of them.
However, if you have four free days at any time of the year, any season is a good time to discover Lanzarote!

4 days itinerary in Lanzarote
When planning what to see in Lanzarote in four days, have a realistic view of how many places you want to visit you will have time to actually see. Organise your routes to optimise your time, spreading them over the four days and keeping in mind your flights, travel needs between one place and another, etc. So, what itinerary do we suggest for those four days?
Day 1- Timanfaya, Teguise and Famara
The first thing you can see in Lanzarote in 4 days is the area of the Timanfaya National Park. Enjoy an excursion to this majestic place and discover the Montaña de Fuego (Mountain of Fire), where you can eat at the El Diablo restaurant, a place where they cook with the heat of the volcano.
In the afternoon, you can visit Villa de Teguise, one of the most emblematic towns on the island, and end the day at Famara Beach, where you can enjoy one of the most breathtaking sunsets in Lanzarote.
Day 2- Cueva de los Verdes, Jameos del Agua and more
On the second day of your stay in Lanzarote, we suggest you visit some of the most magical places on the island, almost a tribute to the local artist César Manrique. Start with the Cueva de los Verdes, an amazing visit that lasts about 45 minutes.
After that, a few kilometres away, you will find the Jameos del Agua, an incredible masterpiece that you cannot miss if you visit the island. You can book in advance at the restaurant to complete this unique experience.
Next, you can visit the Jardín del Cactus (Cactus Garden), where you will see more than 4.500 different types of this species. The landscape is breathtaking!
And you can finish the day at Las Grietas, a spectacle of nature that allows you to see how the different eruptions have affected the slopes of the Montaña Blanca volcano.
Day 3- Papagayo Beach, Los Hervideros and Charco de los Clicos
It goes without saying that you should spend a day discovering the beaches of Lanzarote. In this case, you can start the day at Papagayo Beach, one of the best beaches on the island. Enjoy it early in the morning so that you can eat at Playa Blanca, in some of the restaurants of Marina Rubicón.
After that, you can visit Los Hervideros, the perfect place to take amazing photos of the rough sea crashing against the rock formations.
From there you can go to Charco de los Clicos or Charco Verde, which is very near, to continue with your photo session in a truly amazing setting.
If you still have enough time, round off the third day at the Charco de San Ginés, in Arrecife, where you can watch the nightfall while you dine.
Day 4- Viewpoints
To complete your route, you can spend the last day visiting some of the most amazing viewpoints of Lanzarote. Start with Mirador del Río, one of the most famous and with the best views.
Then you can go to the town of Haría, which is beautiful and also has a viewpoint worth visiting. There you can eat very well at the La Puerta Verde restaurant, although there are many other places to fill your stomach which are highly recommended.
From this point, you can continue your route of viewpoints to the Mirador del Risco of Famara, a place out of the ordinary. To end your trip, it will leave you with a good taste in your mouth!
