Cycling in Lanzarote

Get to know this Canarian island in the saddle. You’ll find a varied mix of routes, but most offer you tougher uphill terrain to tackle around the volcanic area. Even when you’re not traversing the wondrous landscape, you’ll find plenty of welcoming coastal towns and delicious Spanish fare to help you refuel.

Awesome adventures

You can still keep active when you’re not cycling with a hike into the Tramuntana National Park. Its otherworldly scenes look like they’ve been lifted from the moon, and you could even have a meal cooked by the thermal lava underground!

Coastal journeys

On the far south-western tip lies Playa Blanca, lined by seven bronzed beaches and with fascinating routes to wow you! That includes one that only reaches 250m above sea level, and takes in a fluorescent green lake and rocky coastal cliffs.

Inland inclines

The popular, purpose-built resort of Costa Teguise has plenty to keep you occupied. If you want to experience the volcanic landscape, use the local cycling routes that lead to a house created out of lava bubbles and a grand 15th century castle.
