From soaring volcanic peaks and ancient lava fields, to sprawling vineyards and idyllic sandy beaches, Lanzarote’s ruggedly beautiful terrain is tailor-made for exploring. Here are your options for adventure tours and outdoor activities on the island. 

4WD Tours
The best way to discover Lanzarote’s volcanic landscapes is by 4WD and guided tours mean you can venture off-road to explore the mountains and lava fields, discover hidden beaches, admire the vineyards of La Geria, and stop at local villages. 

Hiking
The hilly terrain of Lanzarote is for hikers that want to soak up the scenery on the Famara coastal cliffs walk or tackle the many hiking trails in the Timanfaya National Park or Los Volcanes Nature Reserve. 

Sailing
The most scenic way to explore the Canary Islands is from the water and catamaran cruises often include stops to swim or snorkel, as well as a buffet lunch onboard. Set sail for the island of La Graciosa, cruise around the Papagayo beaches in southern Lanzarote, or zip out to Lobos on a speedboat.

Snorkeling and Scuba Diving
With warm waters year-round and an abundance of colorful marine life, Lanzarote offers plenty of opportunities for snorkeling and scuba diving. Puerto Calero, Charco del Palo, Playa Blanca, and Arrieta are all popular spots, where you can take a PADI scuba diving course or spot squid, crabs, barracuda, and parrotfish on a snorkeling excursion.

Water Sports
Lanzarote’s beach resorts offer a huge variety of water sports, so you can glide around the calm waters of Puerto del Carmen on a paddleboard, take to the waves for a surf lesson at Famara Beach, or explore underwater on a Sea Trek tour. Adrenaline junkies can also pick up some speed kitesurfing at La Graciosa, take to the skies on a parascending excursion, or have fun on a banana boat aka “crazy UFO” ride.
