One of my favourite holidays has to be when I went to Lanzarote back in 2012. It was a last minute holiday booked to go at the end of November. I had looked around at places that would still be warm at that time of year and Lanzarote certainly fitted this. I honestly did not know what to expect when the holiday was booked as I had heard such mixed reviews! These are just 3 reasons to going to Lanzarote!
Lanzarote is part of the Canary Islands and only 79 miles away from the African Coast. This results in the temperatures being around the same as Northern Africa! When I went at the end of November it was always above 18°C so although it was scorching hot it certainly was lovely to just be away in warmer temperatures! During the summer temperatures are up to around 30°C so also a perfect place to visit with young families.
Timanfaya National Park
Timanfaya National Park is a must see attraction whilst in Lanzarote. Timanfaya National Park is covered in Volcanic Soil and has one active volcano which the park is named after. One of the resturants El Diablo on the volcano actually use the heat of the volcanic heat to cook food that is then served to visitors. On the way up the volcano there is also the opportunity to stop and go for a camel ride! This was something I made the most of!
Who is César Manrique? Everybody that lives in Lanzarote knows this name and his influence on Lanzarote. César Manrique had a huge influence on the planning and building regulations in Lanzarote as he saw the great tourism potential of the Island. One of the most visited attractions is César Manrique’s former home that he had built into the boulders of a lava field.
