About Lanzarote

Cruises to Lanzarote's sunny climate are a big hit with sunbathers and swimmers, who relish its volcanic red, black and white sand beaches. Make the best of your Lanzarote cruise and tear yourself away from your sunbed to explore the island's spectacular moon-like volcanic landscape, best seen from the Fire Mountain in the Timanfaya National Park and famous for the fantastical shapes created by solidified volcanic lava.

Camel rides are available in the park, and tours here will also take you to the lush wine country of La Geria to sample the heady local vintages. Head north instead of southwest and you will discover wonderfully verdant Haria - 'the valley of a thousand palms' and can enjoy panoramic views from Mirador del Rio.

Equally fascinating is a visit to Jameos el Agua cave, an oddly shaped volcanic cave overlooking a saltwater lagoon where you will find a colony of white crabs unique to the island. With our Lanzarote cruises the choice is yours.

Mountain of Fire

Activity lowRefreshments included

Duration: 4¼ hours

It’s simply the ‘must see sight’ in Lanzarote – Fire Mountain at Timanfaya National Park.

Fire Mountain was born from a spectacular volcanic eruption over 280 years ago. As you drive through the haunting scenery of dark, barren lava cinders topped by brooding ochre and violet volcano cones, you’ll witness at close-hand, a lunar landscape whose images nourish the imagination. Have your camera ready, as a guide performs some amazing experiments to demonstrate the violent forces beneath the earth’s crust, proving that the volcano is certainly not extinct, but only dormant.

Vineyards dot the landscape with the vines, protected by semi-circular stonewalls, making them look more like art than agriculture. A visit will be made to a ‘bodega’ for you to try one of the local wines. A short stop will be made at the Aloe Vera Farm on the return journey to your ship.

Essential information

This excursion will operate by coach. Passengers are advised to take a wrap or jacket with them, as it may be windy up on Fire Mountain. Please note that Fire Mountain National Park is a popular tourist attraction, which could result in delays on entrance. Comfortable, flat, closed toe, walking shoes are recommended.
