Distance: between 35 and 60 km Elevation difference: between 600 and 1100 m Grade of difficulty: light - medium
This tour leads you through the southern part of the Timanfaya lava field. From El Golfo it goes on the solidified lava along the volcanic coast to the salt-works Laguna de Janubio. There are on this route 3 runs altogether, and the last one is a little more demanding, since the path ends at some point halfway.

Tour 3: Combination of Tour 1 and Tour 2

Distance: between 35 and 60 km Elevation difference: between 600 and 1100 m Grade of difficulty: light – mediuml
This Tour is for cyclists who would be happy also to go downhill a little faster. There are four runs with a lenght of 12 km totally and 1000 m negative elevation difference.

Tour 4: El Jable

Puerto del Carmen - Tias - La Geria - El Jalbe - Teguise - Arrecife - Puerto del Carmen
Distance: between 38 and 70 km Elevation difference: between 550 and 800 m Grade of difficulty: light – mediuml
The tour leads you to the former capital Teguise through the central part of the island with its sandy plain El Jable. One thing to do would be a swimming stop below the spectacular Famara cliffs. The slopes are rather moderate.

Cycling around the island: "Vuelta a Lanzarote"

Duration: 3-7 days

The cycle tour of the Island in four to seven stages is a special way to make oneself acquainted with Lanzarote. Off the tourist track, you are immersed in a world of solidified lava and extinct volcanoes, which only apparently appears hostile. The routes are mostly on trails and goat paths along the coast and through highlands up to 650 m.

If you want to get fit for the summer season or just spend an unforgettable mountain bike holiday in the Canary eternal spring, you are in the “Vuelta a Lanzarote” on the right track.

Excursions to the neighbouring islands of La Graciosa in the north and Fuerteventura in the south may be involved.
