Adventurous Activities in Lanzarote

Lanzarote has long been a firm favourite with British holidaymakers for a number of reasons. With frequent and cheap flights to Lanzarote from popular tour operators like Thomson, warm climates (Lanzarote stays warm from March to November) and plenty to do it is likely to stay that way. It is also a great destination for those not content to lie on a beach all day, with plenty of sports and trips you can take part in, ensuring you will never be bored. To help you shift through the hundreds of activities available, here is a selection of our favourites.

1. Surfing and Windsurfing

For an island so close to the Sahara you could easily think Lanzarote is much warmer than it is. While it does enjoy good temperatures all year round it is very windy (A popular resort on the island, Costa Teguise is actually nicknamed ‘Breezy Teguise-y, with good reason). However, it does make the conditions for surfing or windsurfing ideal, so why not try something new today and get out on the fantastic waves Lanzarote has to offer?

2. Walking
