      Fire Mountains Camel Ride and Wine Tasting

      Arrecife, Lanzarote, Spain
      From (USD) $
      Highlights
      • Fire Mountains: Visit a national park of lava fields and at least one volcano, Timfanaya, that remains active to this day.
      • Camel ride: Native to the Canary Islands since the 15th century, camels provide a unique way to see Lanzarote from a comfortable seat fixed to the saddle. 
      • Wine country: Visit a wine cellar in La Geria and taste wine made from grapes grown in volcanic ash.
      About this Arrecife, Lanzarote tour

      Rising – quite literally – like a phoenix from the ashes, the island of Lanzarote was shaped by a catastrophic six-year, hundred-volcano eruption in the 18th century, whose effects can still be seen today. While only one volcano is still active, temperatures under the surface get hot enough to turn a hastily poured bucket of water into a geyser of steam.

      Fortunately, you won't be walking on the surface. Since the 15th century, camels have been a key fixture in Lanzarote, brought here during raids by the Spanish lord Diego Garcia de Herrera. Unlike horses, camels have soft feet; their silent steps will allow you to drink in the sounds of the breeze and the sea.

      Lanzarote offers more than just otherworldly scenery and geological marvels. The purity of the volcanic environment allows local vintners to make a purer wine, as Canary Island vines aren't grafted onto other rootstocks to protect them from insects.

      What's more, at least one European varietal grown in the Canaries is now hard to find even in its native Spain. That means you get to taste wine from rare grapes grown in rare soil at rare elevation (some Canary vineyards are among the highest in the world). An impressed New York Times wine critic called the result "grapes born of volcano and sea."

      Fit for a queen

      Some sources hold that the Canary Islands were visited by Dido, queen of ancient Carthage – a city she won from a North African warlord in one of history's earliest real estate swindles. When he later demanded she marry him, she threw herself on a funeral pyre. A different account, however, says she returned to the Canaries with a lesbian lover, predating the thriving gay tourism scene here by several thousand years.
