See the best of Lanzarote from a different perspective – on a 4x4 vehicle. Travelling in a comfortable Land Rover Discovery, you’ll bump along dusty tracks and roads, past some of the island’s most dramatic scenery. Your first pitstop is LagoMar, Omar Sharif’s former home, to take photos of its surreal caves, pools and rock gardens. It’s said he gambled and lost this incredible house during a game of bridge. Next comes a photo-stop at the postcard-pretty old capital of Teguise, with its wooden-balconied houses and cobbled lanes. After that, you’ll head off-road into the spectacular Timanfaya National Park, bouncing past barren lava fields and massive volcanoes that look like something from a sci-fi film. Other stops include the Monument of the Peasant, a sculpture honouring the island’s favourite son, architect Cesar Manrique, and the bleak-but-beautiful La Geria wine-growing region. This blackened valley is scattered with neon-green vines planted inside stonewalled pits – you’ll find out why and get to taste some of the wines they produce while you’re here. Then, it’s back in your 4x4 for your return trip.
