Lanzarote, the most pristine of the Canary Islands, with its 400 volcanoes, wild nature and its eternal spring climate, is the perfect place for those who want to spend an “active” holiday on the pedals in winter.
This small island of 70 km in length facing the coasts of Morocco in the Atlantic Ocean, like the entire Canary archipelago, was formed by continuous volcanic eruptions that occurred over the millennia, of which the last of the most “explosive” , at the end of 1700 when the lava spill increased its size in a few years by over 30%.
Lanzarote is famous, in addition to its sometimes lunar landscape, also for its vegetation made of cactus, aloe and colorful bougainvillea that contrast with the black of the volcanic rock and the blue of the sky and the sea.
Our journey will take us to touch the nature described on our beloved mountain bikes among secondary roads, off road and single trail. We will cross fishing villages and ancient towns in the hinterland, lava flows and millennial aloe crops, we will enter breathtaking national parks and touch the protective walls of the particular native vines of La Geria that will soon enter by singularity and merit to be part of the heritage protected by UNESCO.
The island, already known and exploited since Roman times for aloe, considered by the ancients the “silent medicine”, also offers a lot from a cultural point of view thanks to the imprint left by the architect and artist Cesàr Manrique. His architectural works scattered everywhere, of a naturalistic mold and of which we will have the opportunity to know in depth during the daily raids, respect and make this island even more unique, which despite its sisters island, has managed to maintain a taste of authenticity, so much so as to be called the wildest of the Canaries. Cesàr Manrique has succeeded, through his creativity, in achieving a perfect marriage between nature and man’s creativity, which does not violate and does not exploit, but follows what the world already offers in abundance.
