Discover Lanzarote’s scenic side with a trip to the less commercial part of the island. On this tour you will see some of Manrique’s masterpieces including, Mirador del Rio, the first of two places you’ll go to that have been created by the island’s design king, Cesar Manrique. This famous viewpoint is made up of lava rock and glass, and serves up soul-stirring views across to the island of La Graciosa. Your next stop is the Aloe Vera Farm, where you can see and feel how this famous wonderplant grows and how the local people use it. And then its on to ‘Jameos del Agua’, this imaginatively landscaped underground grotto is quite similar to his house, only the caves here are ten times as big and ten times as dramatic. In one of the mine-like caverns there’s a concert hall. In another, a bar with tables and chairs arranged at various levels, and in the centre you’ll find a dimly-lit rock pool that’s home to hundreds of tiny blind crabs, unique to Lanzarote.
The tour may be operated in reverse order. There are some inclines and steps with cobblestones at Jameios Del Agua, Mirador and it's sandy underfoot at Aloe Vera Farm.
