Where you want to go today to see what you may never seen before?


Lanzarote, one of the Canary islands off the coast of West Africa administered by Spain, is known for its year-round warm weather, beaches and volcanic landscape. Timanfaya National Park’s rocky landscape was created by volcanic eruptions in the 1730s. Cueva de los Verdes has caverns formed by an underground river of lava. East-coast resort Puerto del Carmen is home to whitewashed villas, beaches and dive centers. ― Google

The Jardín de Cactus is a cactus garden on the island of Lanzarote in the Canary Islands. It is situated in the village of Guatiza, in a former quarry where volcanic sand lapilli was extracted to spread on cultivated areas to retain moisture. Wikipedia

Volcano Road -A slice of the surreal moonscape left by the cooling lava was established in 1974 as the Timanfaya National Park. The whole of Lanzarote was declared a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve in 1993, in recognition of this unique landscape.

Most of the volcanoes in Lanzarote are now dormant, but you can visit the Montañas del Fuego or Fire Mountains within the park. Here you can feel the heat of the volcanic activity at first hand as I have managed to photograph.
