9) Tenesar NW

The small village of ‘Tenesar’ lies on the north coast of the island. Known as the lost village,
which is not often mentioned. During the volcanic eruptions it survived, but was completely
cut off. In recent years following the destruction it has become accessible and some of the
houses are now inhabited. The silence is noticeable and the settlement is a flashback to a
time before the island introduced tourism. It feels like a journey back in time: a wild and
barren section at the back of Timanfaya National Park. From the air you will experience the
story of life.
Meeting point:
We meet directly in front of the village entrance and walk from there about 10 minutes to
the starting place.

10) La Graciosa NW

English translation: “the graceful one” A 29.2 sq km small island, which joins at the upper
end of Lanzarote and together with adjacent even smaller islets at the Northern end of
where the Canary Islands form. Since 1986 it belongs to the Chinijo Archipelago Nature
Park.
We need very good weather conditions in order to fly from the steep coast “Caleta de
Famar” over to “La Graciosa”. Since we will fly over the open sea, winds must provide the
proper altitude. If granted, we will have the adventure par excellence! After landing we take
the ferry back to Orzola (Lanzarote).
Meeting point:
Parking at the beach – Playa de la Cantería / From there we drive together with our shuttle
up to the ‘Mirado del Rio’. You will walk 10 minutes to the starting point.
