Lanzarote in Canary Islands. One of the special places in the world.

Lanzarote is different than other sun and sea destinations. It’s an island where nature and art prevail. A place where the people are as warm as they are active and proud. Where the food tastes of the sea and the earth. Where the essence of the island leaves a mark on your soul long after you depart. That’s The Lanzarote Effect.

Leisure and free time
Lanzarote’s excellent year-round climate, together with its unique landscape, means that anyone seeking something more than the sun and the beach will be able to enjoy a series of activities in nature, whether on their own, or led by qualified professionals.

Among the activities that can be enjoyed are diving, hiking, surfing, windsurfing, kitesurfing, golf, etc.

Likewise, there are a wealth of wonderful sea trips on offer, as well as varied leisure centres which offer a wide range of activities: visitors can watch performances with animals, go horse riding, explore local flora and fauna, explore the underwater word, taste local wines, etc.

As you can see, Lanzarote’s huge offer of activities will keep adults and children entertained, fulfilling the expectations of both the most adventurous and the least intrepid of visitors in search of the best holiday experience.

Lanzarote is an island that is filled with surprises. Its gastronomy and wines will no doubt leave the visitor with a sensation of satisfaction.

The Canary Islands have been subject to a multitude of cultural influences that can all be seen in its cuisine. The inhabitants of Lanzarote inherited some of their culinary customs from the original indigenous inhabitants. Apart from the Guanche legacy, the island gastronomy has also been influenced by Spanish and South American cuisines.

The dishes stand out for their simplicity, as the ingredients are more important than the processes, but the results are very tasty.

Excellent meat, fresh fish, vegetables and virgin olive oil all have their place on Lanzarote’s tables. An important role is played by local wines and cheeses. Stews are the most typical way of consuming vegetables. Owing to the wealth of the sea surrounding the Canary Islands, there are many varieties of fish. Highlights from the recipes using fish include Sancocho (fish stew) and fish soup.

The most commonly found meats include pork, chicken, rabbit and goat. With regard to desserts, panes de maní (peanut buns) and roscos de alma (a kind of doughnut) are typical.

And we must not forget to mention the most popular dish: papas arrugadas (potatoes boiled in their skins). Accompanied by mojo (a local chilli and garlic sauce), they are must have during any visit to Lanzarote.

Lanzarote is Living Wine, a leisurely melody from a noble legacy that grows, in this dry subtropical climate, thanks to the ingenuity of previous generations.

The people made the volcanic sands their ally in order to wring every last drop of water from an adverse climate, and the growers have been strengthened by their permanent struggle with the scarce rainfall, until they managed to decipher the secrets of the cool air that arrives with nightfall.

The fertile layer of soil into which the established and renewed vine roots sink is hidden, in some cases up to ten metres deep.

The Marks Left by Pirates on Lanzarote
It’s the 16th century. The world is a Risk board and a small island, 100 kilometres off the coast of Africa and right on the route to the Americas, was strategically placed to win the game. Pirates, traders and privateers all used it as their larder. Today we will be climbing the cliffs and visiting the forts of Lanzarote to uncover the memories.

The day breaks on the coast of Los Ancones. The air is filled with the smell of saltpetre. The sun blends into a spectacle that starts with gold, turns red and ends with purple before melting into black.

Right in this place, but a long time ago – one night in May over 400 years ago – three thousand men aboard thirty-six galleys landed in the darkness. Their mission: to capture slaves and to haul away any valuable object.
