Lanzarote magical island
Firstly nature has had to adapt to the sometimes harsh environment of the island. Secondly generations of people have had to adapt equally, to create survival values unlike any others in the world.
It became increasingly difficult for the people to grow produce in such a harsh environment. The luck soon returned though. Tourism arrived and brought with it the opportunity for new generations to flourish and grow in a brand new way.
What else makes Lanzarote so unique? The Sahara Desert is only 127km away from this easternmost Canary Island. This isn’t the only reason for the several microclimates which exist throughout Lanzarote. Other factors include a lack of high mountains, the Canary current bringing in the cooler Atlantic water plus the North easterly trade winds.

It’s easy to understand why Lanzarote has been welcoming holidaymakers of the human variety for the last 35 years or more. What we often take for granted, are the endless varieties of bird and sea-life who visit Lanzarote too. Many have made a permanent home here, while others simply migrate in for a short time each year. This type of holidaymaker has been round for millions of years, and our aim is to make sure that our human presence doesn’t interfere with life pattern of nature.
Lanzarote isn’t just about great beaches, amazing sunsets and tapas beside the sea. Although all of those elements are a wonderful part of any holiday! The larger aspect of Lanzarote is the amazing depth and experience on offer. We are lucky enough to be able to view a dramatic geological landscape, which has been conserved by the microclimatic conditions of the island. This offers us the ability to see things unchanged for many years, almost like a glimpse back in time.
The added bonus when exploring Lanzarote is that the local people are very friendly. There are no harmful bugs. Everything is within arms reach on a relaitvely small island. Perfectly maintained Lanzarote villages offer a rare authentic feel which has been carefully maintained and preserved.
