Northern Europeans have long been flocking to the Canary Islands to enjoy their holidays. Especially during the winter months. As these seven specks of Spain guarantee great weather all year round. Thanks to their location off the coast of Africa on the same line of latitude as the Bahamas and Florida.
The Canaries are also just a four hour flight from the UK – making them the closest winter sun destination for British tourists. Who are the largest market for holidays here.
Each island has its own character – with Lanzarote the most arid and barren of the chain. A result of the impact of huge volcanic eruptions which wiped out rich farmland and many villages some 250 years ago.
Fortunately today all of these volcanoes are now dormant and this region is one of the most popular tourist spots on the island. Home to the Timanfaya Volcano Park which is one of the best loved national parks in Spain and which is also known locally as the Fire Mountains.
Getting To Lanzarote
Flights to Lanzarote have never been cheaper. Thanks to the advent of a number of new services from Ryanair this winter, which has helped to bring some ticket costs down to as low as just £9.99 return.
All international flights land at Arrecife airport which is located just outside the capital of the same name. With onward transfer to the main resorts possible by hire car or taxi only. As there is no shuttle bus service in operation on the island.
Where To Stay
Lanzarote offers an abundance of accommodation options. Hotels of all grades and to suit all budgets are available in the three main resorts of Costa Teguise, Puerto del Carmen and Playa Blanca.
Playa Blanca is also home to a wide choice of Lanzarote holiday villas. With prices starting from as little as £450 per week.
The best way to see the island is to hire a car and tour independently. There are plenty of guided tours available but these tend to really limit the amount of time spent at key attractions and are relatively expensive. Whilst car hire in Lanzarote starts from as little as €13 per day.
As well as the volcanic region visitors should be sure to check out the many creations of Cesar Manrique, a local artist. And atmospheric towns and villages such as Haria and Teguise.
