Lanzarote is my favorite place in the world. It is both gentle and wild, it is art and nature and it is pure energy that is simply contagious. On this weekend getaway, get ready to explore volcanoes and visit some of the island’s most incredible beaches on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean. Two days will give you enough time to appreciate the uniqueness of the island’s natural environment and its landscapes.

Over the years, the farmers of Lanzarote have learned to “tame” the volcanoes and grow crops in volcanic rock. For this reason, agriculture continues to be an extremely important part of life in Lanzarote.
Great care is taken to protect the local landscape and environment, so be sure to take note of the stonework on roads, in towns, and even on beaches. For this reason, it’s best to leave places as clean as or cleaner than you found them.
If you fancy trying out an adventure activity on your getaway, the beach at Famara is ideal for surfing, and has an abundance of marine life, making it an ideal destination for scuba diving.
