Forget about the world you know. Come experience another planet. A mineral and primitive planet. A place that reminds us of the origins of our world.
247 kms and 3,500 meters of accumulated elevation gain on an authentic mountain biking route covering paths, trails, and single-tracks around this unique place on the planet called Lanzarote. We will avoid asphalt as much as possible and will, therefore, taste the spirit of the island. We may even dance with her and we’ll surely have an unforgettable journey.
Forget about the typical Canary image of beaches and palm trees. There is a lot more than that. There is a whole world of isolation, tradition and beauty which will trap you forever.
Lava, desert and rocks. Ocean, wind and sun. Life clutches to life taking advantage of the last molecule of water brought by the morning dew. Farmers taking on the impossible, gathering their products from the dry land. A maritime prolonging of the Sahara desert. A powerful ocean of impenetrable blues that accompany you along the entire route. Sometimes the waters are calm and near inviting you to take a swim and other times far and infinite from the heights of Famara. Sometimes, the sea is violent and wild trying to get a hold of you as you travel along the western coast of the island.
The road book will take you along the route without any navigational problems. If you prefer, however, you can rent a GPS for the route.
You will sleep in the establishments used for Pedales de Lava. You will be able to eat the most typical Canarian dishes in the many villages that you will find along the route.
We offer the possibility of doing the route at your level. The most logical version is the 5 day one (our recommendation), but you can also the route in 6 or 7 stages which is even easier. Or to the contrary, set yourself the goal of doing it in 4 days (very hard). Each option can be done with or without a guide.
Why not stay for a few days more on the island to enjoy the peace and quiet of the places which you most enjoyed of the circuit or to visit the varied points of interest that perhaps you didn’t see?
We also recommend that you use our baggage transport service between the different lodging options we offer you.
When you finish the route and once you have passed all the control points, we will give you the exclusive cycling jersey as a reward for having finished the Pedales de Lava.
During the route, the companions can enjoy the many activities available on the island. This includes the children as well as the adults.
