Lanzarote Spain – An Island Of Sun, Sea, Sand And Adventure Sports
The beautiful island of Lanzarote is well known as a sunshine destination as it has been attracting visitors from around the world for many decades now. Its delightful climate is a real bonus as even if you are suffering from the winter blues you only have to hop aboard one of the many flights from the UK’s main airports, and chances are, four hours later you’ll be stepping off the plane into glorious sunshine.
But aside from the outstanding weather and lazing on the beach, the island has plenty more on offer to entice anyone that prefers a bit more action out of their holiday or winter break. So let look at what else the island has to offer the thrill seekers and sports enthusiasts out there.
Lanzarote Rock Climbing and Abseiling
As you can imagine, given its volcanic past it’s not surprising that the island possesses a number of peaks just waiting to be scaled by those with experience (and the appropriate travel insurance of course). You can either join an established group or for the more experienced you could even go “freelance” and find your own challenges. The rock composition is quite varied and sharp in places so make sure you are sufficiently equipped and wear appropriate clothing.
Sticking with the mountain theme you could also try your hand at mountain biking. You can either hire a bike and go off on your own little adventure on the islands many roads or even to Timanfaya National Park, And if you are a real “fitty” you could even try the iron man course. This is definitely not for the faint hearted though.
Alternatively, there are a number mountain biking tours to suit all ages and abilities, and you can even hire racing bikes on the island if you prefer sticking to the well maintained roads.
