Overview

Escape the crowds on the well-trodden tourist trail during an explorative full-day excursion to northern Lanzarote. Accompanied by a knowledgeable guide, explore the ancient capital of Teguise Village (Villa de Teguise) to see charming churches and impressive monuments; absorb spectacular island views from the vertiginous vantage point of Peñas del Chach; and visit an Aloe Vera plantation to see fields of succulent bulbs. Luxuriate in the fabulous facilities of Jameos del Agua before concluding with a visit to the renowned César Manrique Foundation (own expense).
  • Day trip to northern Lanzarote, led by an expert local guide
  • Travel through the ancient capital of Teguise village and learn about its history
  • Enjoy sweeping views of Lanzarote from Peñas del Chach, one of the island’s highest peaks
  • Visit Lagomar and Orzola's aloe vera plantation, LanzaAloe
  • Make the most of some free time at Jameos del Agua, an impressive cave-come-resort
  • Pay a visit to the César Manrique Foundation to see displays of the local artist’s work
Depart from a pre-arranged meeting point in Playa Blanca, Puerto Calero, Costa Teguise, Arrecife or Puerto del Carmen, in an air-conditioned minivan. Admire the scenery until you arrive at Teguise village, the island’s ancient capital; disembark and discover the historical highlights of the town with your guide. 
Ascend to the vertiginous vantage point of Peñas del Chach to enjoy panoramic vistas of the Atlantic’s rugged coastline and the Valley of a Thousand Palms. Next, venture to Lagomar, a significant structure created by beloved Canarian artist Cesar Manrique. Marvel at the white stonewalls and note the Arabian influence then return to the minivan to travel to Orzola.
On arrival, head straight to LanzaAloe where fragrant fields of Aloe Vera plants reign supreme.

Visit Jameos del Agua to discover the luxurious cave-turned-resort; enjoy a volcanic museum, an underground network of walkways and sophisticated shops. Enjoy some leisurely free time then return to the van to venture to your final stop, the César Manrique Foundation. Gain fascinating insight into the artist’s life and work in Lanzarote and see how five volcanic bubbles have been incorporated into the walls of his house.  
Bid farewell to your guide and group at your original departure point.

Leuke tour, vooral het bezoek aan Lagomar was erg leuk en interessant. En de Jameos del Agua waren ook mooi maar misschien iets te toeristisch en 'aangelegd'. We zijn niet naar binnen gegaan bij de César Manrique Foundation omdat de toegang niet inbegrepen was maar hebben zelf een wandeling in de omgeving gemaakt.

interesting and worth a look but the Travel through the ancient capital of Teguise village and learn about its history is a bit misleading as it didn't happen on the trip that said go on the Sunday market trip to Teguise instead it is well worth the effort.
Very orientated to César Manrique who is probably not that well known outside the canaries.

The foundation/house visit is the highlight of the trip but as its included on the Sunday market trip I would do that tour instead.

whilst the Tour is interesting it doesn't teach you much about the North end of the Island and its history just focusing on the artist so perhaps the Cesar Manrique tour would be a more honest name for the trip

For travellers with mobility issues there are a lot of steps so perhaps this could be reflected in the description.

Similar trips on Fuerteventura and Tenerife have shown more about local history and people's lives

that said the guide was very knowledgeable on the artist and the sites visited and very helpful.

Overall a bit disappointed

Great trip, would definitely recommend. Just a few tweaks needed to make it perfect. Firstly, a longer stop needed at the fantastic Lagomar, 30 minutes is just not enough. Less time needed at Jameos del Agua, not enough to see for the 1 hour stop. Don't bother with the lunch, the place is packed with tourist coaches and people, not a pleasant experience.

Totally worth the money! We saw most of the tourist attractions that are famous in a day, also visited the aloe farm. If you want to see the main attractions of the North in a day, then this is a good option. I was however, disappointed with lunch. No veg option really, so the money was a waste. Even for non-veg people, the food didn't look too appetizing. I would recommend you take some sandwiches.
Happy with the tour guide. Learned and saw a lot in one day. Comfortable coach ride. Easy pick up and drop off near our hotel.
