How to Spend 3 Days in Lanzarote

How to Spend 3 Days in Lanzarote

Three days give you plenty of time to enjoy Lanzarote’s nature and culture, and to cruise the coast and discover sun-soaked beaches. Plan ahead to make the most of your time and be sure to book tours and activities in advance, especially in peak season. Here’s how to spend three days in Lanzarote.

Day 1: Sightseeing in the South

Kickstart your stay with a visit to Timanfaya National Park. Visiting the park is only possible with a guide, so join a 4WD safari that lets you access parts of the park that traditional tour vehicles can’t. Some tours give you the chance to ride a camel through lava fields or hike around the Fire Mountains but, for the best value, choose a tour that includes hotel pickup and visits other South Lanzarote highlights.

Nearby, the La Geria wine region is a great choice for lunch—the region is renowned for its Malvasia white wines, which are grown in volcanic soil. In order to skip the hassle of car hire, opt for a tour that transports you along the island’s southwest coast. Tours typically cover the sea cliffs of Los Hervideros, Salinas de Janubio salt flats, and the green lagoon of El Golfo.

Day 2: Discover the North

Dedicate your second day to discovering the rugged coastline and historic villages of north Lanzarote, where highlights include the hilltop village of Haría and the market town of Teguise.

Spend the afternoon at the Jameos Del Agua caves—a modern resort housed in a series of natural lava caves—where you can enjoy lunch at a cave restaurant before exploring the creation of local artist and architect César Manrique. Learn more about Manrique at the César Manrique Foundation and take a stroll around the Cactus Garden. All three attractions can get busy, especially in the summer months, so visit as part of a tour to benefit from skip-the-line admission tickets and prearranged logistics.

Enjoy an evening at a Wild West-themed dinner, which typically include live entertainment, a BBQ buffet dinner, free-flowing Sangria, and activities such as line dancing or lassoing.

Day 3: Cruise the Coast

The coastline of Lanzarote is even more impressive from the water so spend your final day at sea. Cruises typically sail to the small island of La Graciosa, where you can head ashore to explore the villages or relax by the beachside, and usually include an onboard lunch.

Alternatively, take a day trip to Fuerteventura. Tours typically include round-trip transport by ferry, a visit to the island capital of Puerto del Rosario, and the chance to admire the sand dunes of Fuerteventura National Park. Or, if you’re a thrill seeker, spend your final day surfing at Famara beach, going off-road on a buggy excursion, or scuba diving in Puerto Calero.
