WE LOVEBreathtaking Riding
With rides that are slightly easier than its neighbours in Gran Canaria and Tenerife, Lanzarote offers a mixture of undulating rides, climbs and fast roads. Ride through lava fields, past wineries and climb up to incredible lookouts such as Mirador del Rio.
WE LOVEScenic Lanzarote Landscape
The UNESCO World Biosphere of Lanzarote offers a unique, volcanic landscape to explore. The impressive mountains contrast with the golden beaches that famously attract so many tourists each year.

What's Included

Our suggesed Lanzarote self guided cycling holiday

We can tailor make this trip for you
Day 1Arrival in Lanzarote

Remember this trip can be tailor made and is completely flexible. This itinerary is simply a suggestion and you can enjoy as many days on the island as you like.

Arrive into Lanzarote Airport where you will be picked up and driven to your accommodation. We have a variety of accommodation for you to choose from in Puerto del Carmen and Playa Blanca. Both are great places to stay to enjoy the best of the island’s cycling.

Day 2Wineries & The Timanfaya National Park

Today we recommend a route that heads past La Geria. You will be surrounded by semi circular low walls that protect Lanzarote’s vineyards, that produce award winning wines grown out of volcanic gravel, from the winds. Head deep into the Timanfaya National Park before crossing the bottleneck at the top of the island through Tabayesco Valley.

Day 3Ride the Roads to Teguise

Today we suggest you head north. Admire the beautiful village of Yaiza that stands out against the earthy landscape with its cluster of white traditional houses with colourful shutters. Ascend to Teguise and keep cycling north to take on the road that ascends out of Tabayesco Valley, or even a much longer ride to the wild wild east coast of the island.

Day 4Mirador del Rio

No holiday in Lanzarote is complete without a visit to the Mirador del Rio. If you’re staying in Playa Blanca, the ride is from one end of the island to the other, wich is approximately 60km 1 way. It’s a long ride but you will be rewarded with stunning views of the lookout at Mirador del Rio. Marvel at Mt Teide in the distance and the vast ocean beneath you.

Day 5Departure (Or Extend Your Trip)

Today we will give you a return transfer back to the airport or if you prefer, you can extend your trip for as long as you like, as there is always more to explore by bike!
