There’s a new service on the island called Lanza Event Cruiser. They’re offering:
- Tours to places that aren’t currently available
- Mobility tours for people with mobility difficulties
- “One-off” trips to get you to events in parts of the island you normally have to drive to
- A regular “Nightliner” tour to party at one of Lanzarote’s top night clubs
We met the team of Lanza Event Cruiser this week at their office in Arrecife, and they have some great ideas for the future too, which we’ll share with you as they come on stream. Their tours are always accompanied by a host, and in many cases a fully qualified professional guide.
Here’s what they currently have available:
Sun Set Cruise
You’ll be picked up from any of the resorts and taken through Macher, the wine region, the beautiful village of Mancha Blanca and then through the incredible Fire Mountains – watch how they change colour at different times of day. You’ll then head south to Los Hervideros, to see the waves crashing into the blow holes, see the working salt pans and arrive in El Golfo, at the southern tip of the island to watch the sun dipping into The Atlantic, drinking Lanzarote wine and enjoying a tapa or two. Every Thursday.
Tour To Teguise Market and Volcaland
Transfer from resort to the famous Teguise market for the morning, and then travel to Volcaland in Lanzarote’s fabulous wine region to enjoy a buffet lunch. Every Sunday.
This is a tour aimed at discerning travellers, with all the “VIP” extras you would expect. You’ll travel through Lanzarote’s amazing wine region, enjoy a visit to a winery for an exclusive tasting and finish up at LagOmar, an amazing property once owned by film star Omar Sharif.
Nightliner is the ultimate party experience. You’ll be picked up from any of the resorts or Arrecife, and taken to enjoy Lanzarote’s hottest night spot in Puerto del Carmen to party the night away. This tour includes entertainment on board and a free drink on entry. Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
Kid First Family Excursion
Aimed at families, this tour takes you from resort to the Timanfaya Visitor Centre, The Timanfaya National Park and offers an optional camel ride. It’s set up so the kids will have a fabulous time at Lanzarote’s number one attraction – there are games, fun and some great surprises for them. Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
This tour is all about the wine and the views! You’ll call in to the Timanfaya Visitor Centre to learn about our volcanoes, visit a wine bodega to taste some wine, drive through the wine region and up to historic Teguise, before travelling through beautiful Las Nieves on your way to Haria, the valley of a thousand palms. Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
Lanza Event Cruiser Mobility Tours
These are in conjunction with Mobility Jane.
Mobility Tour To Rancho Texas
This tour is designed for those with limited mobility. You’ll travel in a coach, but another vehicle will follow behind with your mobility aids. Visit Lanzarote’s only theme park, Rancho Texas in Puerto del Carmen.
Mobility Tour To Teguise Market And Volcaland
This is the same tour mentioned above every Sunday, and includes help and assistance for those with limited mobility. Enjoy the best market on the island and an (optional) fabulous buffet lunch.
Whenever there’s something exciting to visit on the island, Lanza Event Cruiser will lay on a drop off and collection service in one of their luxury coaches.
Nuestra Señora Del Carmen – August 11th
Pick ups from Costa Teguise, Arrecife, Matagorda, Puerto Calero and Playa Blanca to take you to Puerto del Carmen’s old town harbour to enjoy the finale of the big fiesta, with live music, a fun fair and the spectacular maritime procession.
There are two runs – giving the choice of staying until 4AM of you’re a late night party person!
Just €16 per ticket, including a host on the cruiser.
Fiesta San Ginés
Again, you’ll be picked up from the resorts and taken to Arrecife’s massive summer fiesta. Enjoy tapas and entertainment around Charco San Ginés and then party on the beach until the small hours.
It’s great to see some new and interesting offers on the island for those of you who have been coming here for years, and also to finally have a service to take those of you who prefer not to drive to some of the amazing fiestas we have.
