Best hotels on Lanzarote for a walking Holiday

Walking on LanzaroteFlickr user Christine McIntosh

Don’t dismiss Lanzarote as being purely an island for sun, sea and fun. Inland it boasts some of the Canary Islands’ most dramatic volcanic landscapes, and makes an excellent choice for active folk. Our pick of the best hotels on Lanzarote for a walking holiday offer something for everyone, whether you're looking for a bargain B&B or a self contained cottage which will accommodate a family or small group.

The island’s biggest national parks are the Parque Nacional de Timanfaya and the Parque Natural de Los Volcanes, a series of volcanoes, calderas and lava fields. Still active - don’t worry; there’s a very sophisticated early-warning system - these make for dramatic walks amongst stunning scenery and wildlife. You’ll also find curious horseshoe-shaped groups of vines amongst the black volcanic earth; the best way to harvest the rainwater and protect from the ferocious winds.
