Posted on 09 February 2018
Whether you’re an avid hiker looking to conquer some challenging terrain or you just want to break the routine of a typical beach holiday, when it comes to active holidays, Lanzarote is sure to deliver plenty of fun-filled options for a memorable trip. 
From scuba-diving off the beautiful coastline to climbing the highest peak and exploring volcanic tunnels carved out by lava, in today’s post, we’re looking at just some of the reasons to get active during your time in Lanzarote.
1. Glorious sunshine all year long
For many visitors to Lanzarote, one of the major draws is the promise of glorious sunshine and a warm climate - regardless of when you visit. With Lanzarote weather boasting low rainfall and temperatures that rarely dip below 20°C - even during the winter months - it’s the perfect place to get active outdoors, without the worry of bad weather ruining your plans. 
That being said, if you’re planning on enjoying time outside in Lanzarote, make sure you’re well prepared for the weather with sunscreen, water and appropriate clothing - allowing you to maximise your enjoyment while exploring.
2. Everything within easy reach
As a small island, all the different attractions and activities are within easy reach - offering you the chance to vary the types of things you get your teeth stuck into. Climbing volcanic peaks one day, scuba-diving the next and trekking through eerie lunar landscapes the day after that, with the option to swap activities day-to-day, nothing is out of reach - even if you’re using public transport or renting bikes. 
3. Experience a variety of terrains
When it comes to walking, Lanzarote isn’t just about traversing up and down awe-inspiring volcanoes - although this is definitely one of the highlights. Between the stunning, sandy beaches and towering volcanoes, you’ll also discover lush, green valleys, barren deserts and rocky landscapes that look out of this world. Whether you want action-packed walking holidays in Lanzarote, or something with a more leisurely pace, this island delivers an abundance of hiking options suitable for all abilities. From coastal strolls to steep ascents, you can take things at your own pace while enjoying the natural beauty and wildlife along the journey.
4. A wealth of watersports
With over 200 kilometres of beautiful coastline, it’s no surprise that watersports heavily feature in the list of things to do on the island. Besides the typical doughnut rides and banana boats you find on the main resort beaches, you’ll also find numerous water-based fun to be had during your time in Lanzarote. Whether you fancy roaming the shoreline above by boat or marvelling at the tropical marine life while scuba diving, Lanzarote is awash with reasons to hit the beach and dive right in. 
5. Something for everyone
One of the most important reasons to get active in Lanzarote is that regardless of your interests, you’re sure to find something that inspires you to get out and about. With villa holidays in Lanzarote, everyone can create lasting memories - whether that’s going underground in the Green Cave’s lava tunnels, snorkeling the coral reefs or hiking the volcanic landscapes and valleys. With adventure and natural beauty at every turn it caters for abilities and personal tastes. 
If you’re planning a vacation in Lanzarote and want to add a little adventure to your holiday, then we hope you’ll find plenty of reasons to get out there and get active. And with a stay in some of the best villas in Lanzarote, you’ll find the perfect home-from-home after a busy day discovering the delights on the island.
