The idea behind Lanzarote on Foot

I've lived in Lanzarote since October 2009 and during that time, I've walked all round the coast, and up many of the accessible mountains. Some of the walks I've done are taken from various guide books, others were just a case of looking at the map and going for it.  I hope eventually to complete my circumnavigation, and climb all the mountains!  Sometimes I walk alone, (although nowadays only in the places frequented by others!) sometimes with one or two friends, and sometimes with the walking group of which I'm a member.

I intend to start off by recounting some of my more recent walks, and then, as the mood takes me, recall earlier ones,  using photos to illustrate the descriptions.  I may also write themed posts based on what I've seen to link into Sepia Saturday


  1. Congratulations John!Wonderful site!! Well done...the book comes next!!!
    I knew you would do it well.

  2. Thank you for this very nice information. It gave me some very good ideas to do on my holiday to Lanzarote next week!

    1. I'm glad you like it. There are many marked walking trails, and the tourist information offices can give you a map. I also recomment the book "Walk Lanzarote" and its companion map (pale blue cover)which you can find in resort book shops.

  3. This is great. Thank you for sharing. My ancestors are from there and I wonder alot about how it is and how it was. You are truly blessed to be able to enjoy it. Thanks again.
