Lanzarote is a beguiling island in the Canary Archipelago, which will fascinate you with its mysterious atmosphere, golden beaches hugged by the turquoise waters and the contrasting volcanic relief which is filled with craters and rivers of petrified lava. Nature and people who live in an unperturbed harmony, have created this unique and surreal landscape together. Lanzarote also has some extremely beautiful caves , multicolored gardens, palm trees, cactus fields and quiet villages dotted with white houses. All these elements contribute, and help paint the picture of this breathtakingly beautiful Island.

The entire surface of the Island, 803 square feet to be precise, has received the status of UNESCO biosphere reserve. The reason for this is quite obvious. The island is home to almost 300 volcanoes, most of which are dormant. In the Fire Mountains, there are still places with temperatures that exceed 120 degrees. The Fire Mountains have recently become the National Park of Timanfaya, a place which is definitely worth seeing. The major part of the island is covered with volcanic soil, and this has resulted in extremely fertile lands which ensure the production of red wine.
