Discovery Safari: Volkanica Route 4x4: Once the group is assembled in the village of Macher we start the trip driving on offroad-tracks towards La Asomada, where we'll have the chance to see the local cultivation and enjoy the view of the whole coastline of Puerto del Carmen and Arrecife.
Afterwards we arrive to the area of La Geria, we continue towards Timanfaya, the 3rd most visited national park in Spain, which is situated in the region of the Montañas del fuego (Fire Mountains), the mountains of fire. Once we enter the park the clients take a tour in bus to discover a huge variety of geological phenomenon related to their volcanic nature as well as a big biological diversity with about 180 different species. After having finished the bus tour, we have some time to eat something abd take pictures.
In the restaurant El Diablo the interior heat of the Timanfaya soil (remember that there's still volcanic activity in the national park!) is used to prepare the typical dishes of Lanzarote. Having left the park we make another short stop and the clients get the chance to hop on a camel and take a ride through the valley of the Montañas del Fuego ((Fire Mountains) if they want to.
Next stop is the region called El Golfo, one of the rare and scarce examples of hydro volcanism, a volcanic activity which takes place at low levels of altitude. The volcano is formed by porous lava, which has created spectacular landscapes with the time passing by. The sea is passing through the crater forming a beautiful black beach presenting a great contrast to the green lake to which it is connected underground. The lake that has appeared is called Laguna de Los Clicos (Green Lake) and has been declared preserve area.
After few kilometers with our jeep we arrive to Los Hervidores. The narrow road, uniquely designed by Cesar Manrique, already shows that we are approaching a special place. Since the eruption of Timanfaya, for more than 2 centuries, the beautiful south-west coast has created its volcanic rocky geography. The immediate cooling of the lava when hitting the water and the erosive effect of the waves have created a peculiar coastal line. The underwater caves, the recondite morphological turning and the strength of the sea offer an unforgettable spectacle. We go on to Las Salinas de Janubio. They cover 440.000 square meters of salt-producing land. Due to the origen of the central lake, which consists of water from the close sea, the salinas were linked to the fishing, salting and fish-conserving industry of the island. It's a majestic view. The impressive explosion of colors and the architectural complex guarantee a unique experience. The surroundings with the contrast between the salt and the black sand of the neighboring beach Janubio make the postcard-view complete.
To finish our trip we drive to the famous Papagayo Beach in the area of Playa Blanca where we can enjoy a swim in the clear water.
