Learning volcanic science
The magnificent conservation of the landscape, thanks to the arid climate of Lanzarote, will leave you stunned.
Get ready to travel back 25 million years to the Oligocene. On the seabed, a volcanic edifice was emerging, the island of Lanzarote, which when surfacing from of the sea emitted magma and lava began to pile up.
This trip will take you from the birth of the Canary Islands to the present day. You will learn about the internal forces of our planet and how Lanzarote and the Canary Islands were at the beginning. A whole class of volcanic science.
Unique views of a volcanic landscape with strange formations due to the solidification of lava.
Sharpen the view and find these singular formations: we will cross the lava flows, we will ascend to the volcanic cones, we will pass by the volcanic tubes and discover lava lake formations, craters, tunnels, hornitos and much more.
In search of vegetation
Vegetation is scarce, and is only present in areas with older lava solidification. On the lava, we will find a timid resurgence of life: fungi, lichen, majorera asparagus and purpurario gongarillo.
The surviving fauna
The Natural Park of Los Volcanes has been declared a Special Protection Area for Birds (ZEPA). A zone of special protection for birds (ZEPA) is a category of protected areas listed by the member states of the European Union as natural areas of unique relevance for the conservation of birds threatened with extinction.
Despite the extreme conditions of aridity, lack of vegetation and water, 200 species inhabit this park (50% vertebrates), 24 of them protected. Reptiles and birds stand out.
