Private Timanfaya National Park and the Volcanic Fire Mountains
The easternmost Canary Island will host your private tropical outing. With the Fire Mountains looming, you'll reach Timanfaya National Park to embark on the Route of Volcanoes tour. Next, you'll see the vibrant Green Lagoon of El Golfo before enjoying a coastal drive leading to La Geria Vineyards for a wine tasting. Travelers seeking a thorough island adventure will enjoy this Arrecife excursion.
Composed of 300 volcanic cones, it's fascinating how an eruption hasn't occurred in Timanfaya since 1824. Even so, the landscape your guide takes you through features many volcanic impressions. Enjoy a beautiful drive along the coast with the Fire Mountains surrounding you.
Soon, you'll reach the Timanfaya National Park, which is a near Martian-like setting with rare plants that have adapted to the area's high temperatures. Witness a few geothermal experiments revealing temperatures between 700 and 1100 degrees Fahrenheit, just a few feet below the surface!
Moving along, encounter the stunning Green Lagoon of El Golfo. This submarine volcano is over one million years old. The rare minerals from the volcano cause the waters in the lagoon to appear almost fluorescent green.
Upon driving along the lava coast of Los Hervideros, you'll reach the protected landscape of La Geria. These vineyards have been cultivated by the Lanzarote farmers for nearly three centuries. The opportunity to taste their Volcanic Malvasia should not be missed, as it is produced by the most prestigious winery in the Canary Islands.
Reserve this private volcanic adventure today for an incredible Arrecife excursion in Spain.

Nothing like I have ever seen before! Very friendly, knowledgeable Guide. Our was very skilled/cautious driving through the volcanic fields. Felt like we were on the moon! Very interesting island...doing a Private Tour was the only way to go after seeing the hoards of people on huge coaches! Shore Excursion Group has come through again with top notch excursions!!!
