A unique ride through some of the most dramatic landscapes to be found in Europe. These islands are of volcanic origin. Lanzarote suffered a series of eruptions in the 18th century and as a result has some fascinating landscapes with volcanoes and lava flows everywhere. The architectural works of César Manrique form a valuable complement to the volcanic environment and are a must. The benign climate, neither hot in summer nor cold in winter, means that cycling is possible all year round.
