Lanzarote – Landscapes

May 21, 2013

Here are just a few photos that sadly won’t show you the whole beauty of the spectacular landscapes I have seen in Lanzarote – an island that rises from the Atlantic as a solid rock.

It’s covered in colourful mountains and even 1/4 of its territory is under frozen lava and volcanic ash – that’s how the black fields and beaches were formed. It’s a brilliant holiday destination, yet there aren’t many sandy beaches. Still the few we found are really pretty (I fell in love with Famara!) – remember I was talking about the postcard views in my previous post?

Roads, that climb the mountains, offer breathtaking views – sometimes you feel you’re looking at the island as if it’s just a map. Oh, and the fields of grapes in La Geria region… well, it makes me wonder how anything can grow in such infertile soil…
