2, Departure Órzola to Haría – 12km
The north of Lanzarote is the greenest, and often more cloudy than the south. From Órzola we leave straight through the mountains towards Haría. On the way you can really enjoy the beautiful views and we pass nice villages. Such as the village of Máguez, a peaceful village with authentic Canarian architecture. Haría is the first stop and has a cozy village center. It was also the residence of the locally well-known César Manrique. A man with a unique progressive vision about harmony between man and nature. Manrique's house is now a museum, which you can visit for a fee.
3, Departure Haria to San Bartolome – 23 km
After a hearty breakfast we set out early today. You will be dropped off in Haría, where the first stage ended. Today, in addition to the considerable number of kilometers, also the bridging of the highest point of the island, the Peñas del Charce, is on the program. We walk over the massif at Famara towards Teguise, the former capital of Lanzarote.
4, Departure San Bartolomé to La Asomada – 16 km
From San Bartolomé we walk between the volcanoes, up and down to La Asomada. On the way we pass the village of Montaña Blanca, named after the mountain of the same name. When the weather is clear you can see Fuerteventura.
5, Departure La Asomada to Yaiza – 13 km
A short walk today, but the most beautiful for us personally. After the departure from La Asomada, we immediately enter a transition from the dry area to the wine region of La Geria. Spectacularly beautiful how the grapes grow here for miles in the holes typical of the island. You can also see the Timanfaya Mountains beautifully with the different shades of red. A large part of the mountain range is a protected nature reserve and protected from tourists. You can only access with a bus or guide. Perhaps you will encounter some camels along the way that make the rounds with tourists.
6, Departure Yaiza to Playa Blanca – 17 km
The last day. We walk to Las Breñas through a somewhat rougher area. Boulders and pebbles, clambering up and down. In the distance you can see the salt pans (the Salinas Janubio) of the island to the right of the route. In Las Breñas we can enjoy a cup of coffee or something else. We will walk the last part through a long flat part. In the distance we see Playa Blanca, but it is still quite some distance. You will probably see goatherds walking around with their goats on this plain. Here on this plain it can be quite hot and there is no shelter from shade!
