Southern Lanzarote Day Trip
Travel through the village of Uga on your way to Timanfaya National Park. Stop here for an optional camel ride (own expense) and follow the Route of the Volcanoes, twisting round the slopes for grandstand views. Hear about the 18th-century eruptions that formed the surrounding cones and calderas and witness geothermic experiments; you can watch bundles of branches go up in flames within seconds of being tossed into fire pits.
Head out of the park to see the vine-coated fields in the fertile La Geria winemaking region and learn how the island’s crisp and fruity wines, made from the malvasia grapes, are cultivated. Then, head for a winery to sample a glass for yourself! Afterward, rejoin your coach for your return journey.
After traveling through Uga and Timanfaya National Park to see the geothermal demonstrations, follow the Route of the Volcanoes to see some of the more spectacular lava formations as your guide explains how they were formed by past eruptions.
Enjoy a camel ride (own expense) and continue to the park’s lava-carved west coast where El Golfo, a jewel-green lagoon, awaits. Pause at the Janubio salt pans and see Los Hervideros, an area where waves have hollowed out craggy grottoes into the coastline.
Next, continue to the idyllic winemaking region of La Geria. See the vineyards where Lanzarote’s malvasia grape varietals are grown, and learn how they’re cultivated using the unique climate and landscape. Visit a winery to sample some wine and return to your coach for a drop-off at the meeting point.

We booked for a full day trip. In the Morning, the bus picked us up at 9 o'clock in Costa Teguise. When we finished to pick up every passangers it was 11 o'clock. This is too long. It was really boring. The organizers should have figure out something for this, because in this way it is terrible. But after this, the programs were great. We really liked the El Golfo, Los Hervideros and in Timanfaya national park the geothermal demonstration. But for us it should've need more time to take photos and enjoy the places. For us it was rushing. We've been in La Geria to visit a vinery. It is an unnecessary program and takes too much time. We could see the vineyards perfectly from the bus too. It is only because the travellers should spend money in the vinery shop. And we hate the lunch. We booked for a buffet lunch for 8 euro/per., but most of the food was made from canned food. It was a big disappointed part for us. We tought we will get some really good pailla or some special Spanish food, but we finally get some . We felt overwhelmed because of this lunch. If someone goes for this trip, choose the lunch from the bar! Or the organizers should find a better restaurant! The guide was very nice and funny, and he known a lot about the island, it was interesting to listen him. Thanks a lot for him!
Fantastic trip, we did the full day.
This was a pleasant and enjoyable trip. The only thing is you spend an awful long time on the coach. We spent nearly 2 hours on the coach doing pick ups, and drop offs, and people swapped coaches when they were doing different trips. We only had half hour for lunch and 15 minutes in the vineyard, yet as I say, so much time spend on the pick up. Still a nice trip.
