Favorite thing: Visit the National Park of Timanfaya. It is a volcanic field where you can appreciate a great variety of geologic phenomena as well as a large biological mix of some 180 different plant species.
Visit Arrecive, the present capital. Many more pictures in my Arrecive TRAVELOGUE.
Fondest memory: Take your time in this city.
Fondest memory: Lanzarote's volcanic landscape is probably the most bizarre on this planet. You feel like you're on Mars!
Visit Teguise, the old capital. There's much more in my Teguise TRAVELOGUE!
Fondest memory: Do not go to the stupid tourist market on Sundays, but on a calm Monday morning.
visit La Graciosa,
a small island north of Lanzarote.
You can make a trip with mountain bikes, or make a walk or just enjoy the sun and the white beaches
The bus tour around Tenerife - very educational if you listen to the guide. The Teide vulcano was very impressive.
Fondest memory: Our hotel cat - we called it 'Peach' (not in the picture below...).
ICOD DE LOS VINOS =
The famous ancient Dragon tree at Icod de los Vinos. Many speculations have been made on how old the tree is, reaching from 365 to over at thousand years!
Favorite thing: Take a day at the Maspalomas desert. Not far from it you find the Palmitos park which is a 200.000 square meters large park which houses animals and lots of beautiful flowers.
Favorite thing: Enjoy sun, sea and sand in two beautiful beaches Puerto Rico and Amadores. Prices for sun beds are 300 ptas and sun umbrellas 250 ptas. (This picture is from Puerto Rico beach.)
Favorite thing: see the fiesta that is in Playa de las Americas around Eastertime. We watched it pass by from a friends balcony. It was very colourful.
Favorite thing: go to Maspalomas and jump up and down in the waves and then slide down a sand dune (watch it though - the sand is very hot!)
Favorite thing: Teide - you see the highest mountain , a volcano of Tenerife, in the background. We always looked for it, it was so impressive.
Favorite thing: Take a brake and enjoy your life. There are many great restaurants to enjoy on the Canarias. Here you see my wife sitting and relaxing.
