WE LOVEBreathtaking Coastal Riding
As you cycle on tarmacked roads, parallel to the golden Lanzarote beaches, you will be treated to exceptional views over the Atlantic Ocean. The rugged coastline offers stunning riding with the El Golfo Coast providing one of many outstanding rides on the island.
WE LOVEThe Climbing
Whilst Lanzarote is flatter than its neighbours, Gran Canaria and Tenerife, the landscape is still fitting for those looking to test themselves with challenging climbs. The Montanas de Fuego (The Fire Mountains) are a particular highlight of the trip, as is the popular 10km climb in Tabeyesco Valley.

What's Included

Our suggested Lanzarote Advanced Cycling Week

We can tailor make this trip for you
Day 1Famara/La Santa (Monday)

Following the “donkey road” to Tias you will see the western part of Lanzarote. The journey to Famara will be along flatland, but the downside is the wind blowing against you. Ensure this doesn’t let you forget to take in the views of Famara cliffs! There will be an opportunity to take a break and explore La Santa, a fishing village. Use this break to relax as next you will climb 7km to Tinajo, then cross volcanic landscapes back to Puerto del Carmen.

Today is ridden at approximately 22-25km/h.

Total distance71kmTotal climb922m
Day 2Tabayesco (Tuesday)

An essential when cycling in Lanzarote is the 10km climb in Tabayesco Valley. The route starts at Puerto del Carmen, then heads through Tias, Masdache and Teguise, which used to be the capital. From Teguise the route rapidly descents until Tabayesco Valley, where you will roam through coastal villages, aloe vera fields and gardens filled with cacti. Once the summit has been reached, lunch will be held at Los Helechos Restaurant. The final 40km is an effortless decent from 600m to sea level.

Today is ridden at approximately 22-25km/h.

Total distance60kmTotal climb1025m
Day 3Femes (Wednesday)

Your first cycle of Lanzarote will be to the village of Puerto Calero, followed by a 10km climb of La Asomanda. Next you will cycle south through Conil and Playa Blanca to the Wine Valley of Uga and Yaiza, a secluded village. The most challenging part will be the 4km climb to Femes (maximum 20% gradient). The view from lunch will look over Playa Blanca and another Canary Island – Fuerteventura. There will be many wineries passed on the way back to Puerto del Carmen.

Today is ridden at approximately 24-28km/h.

Total distance77kmTotal climb1075m
Day 4Mirador Del Rio (Thursday)

Today you will cycle up to Tias and Montana Blanca, reaching Monumento al Campesino and then upwards to the village of Los Valles. The journey back will be leisurely – through the Valley of a Thousand Palm Trees and Haria, a historic village which lies within. The ride to El Mirador del Rio involves a combination of upward and downward descents, but they will be worth it when you see the view of La Graciosa Island and its surroundings. From here, you will cycle onto Orzola.

Today is ridden at approximately 24-28km/h.

Total distance121kmTotal climb1655m
Day 5Fire Mountains (Friday)

Cycle towards Puerto Calero, then onto Uga, to reach Montanas del Fuego (The Fire Mountains). The 5km climb may be challenging, but upon reaching the summit you will be rewarded with a view of camel safaris. The next ride from Tinajo is downhill to La Santa, a fishing village. It is then time to cycle uphill to Soo and Tiaga, before heading back to Puerto del Carmen, cycling through Tinguaton and Coni on the way.

Today is ridden at approximately 22-25km/h.

Total distance65kmTotal climb950m
Day 6Puerto del Carmen (Saturday)

Thursday is rest day. You have the option of relaxing around the hotel and exploring the surrounding areas, or getting on your bike and completing a self guided route! Your guides will be full of ideas and inspiration.

Day 7El Golfo/Wine Valley (Sunday)

After a hilly start, today’s cycle towards the island centre is predominantly flat. It will take you through volcanic landscapes such as Las Montanas del Fuego (The Fire Mountains). You will then move onto one of the most popular cycling roads, down the coast of El Golfo riding through Yaiza and Puerto Calera. The final cycle is largely downhill with a beneficial tailwind.

Today is ridden at approximately 22-25km/h.

Total distance73kmTotal climb838m
