Volcanoes, vineyards and viewpoints – how to do Lanzarote in three days
We had the pleasure and honor to work for Thomas Cook Airlines UK.
In these three days we were in charge of the photo shooting and the drone shooting (video coming soon)
Even after 12 years living in this wonderful island, it’s always a recharging experience to see and to live these amazing places…
Lanzarote is known for its volcanic landscape so we jumped straight in on our first day and headed up to the Timanfaya National Park. The park can be found in the south-western part of the island and is home to the Montañas del Fuego (Fire Mountains) which were created when more than 100 volcanoes erupted to form the spectacular lunar-like setting that’s left today. You’ll find the park on most to-do lists for Lanzarote and it’s well worth a visit for the drive through the mountain roads and the mini-geysers that explode from holes caused by the heat beneath the ground.
A morning in the mountains definitely worked up an appetite so a stop-off just a short drive away in El Golfo at the Restaurante Casa Torano was a welcome break. This authentic Canaries family style restaurant is perched on a rocky outcrop next to the sea and offers some of the freshest seafood that money can buy. It was a perfect place to while away a few hours in the sun and the cool sea breeze.
Feeling refreshed, we were ready to explore some more and close by was the beautiful Lago Verde. A short walk up a sandy track and the views were spectacular. The lake itself seems to glow green and the mountainous backdrop provided one of the best selfie-spots of the trip.
