When a new tour works it's great and this year I had the idea for a well-being holiday in the beautiful Canary Island of Lanzarote. A perfect place for winter sun to get guests in the mood for some exercise and prepare us for Christmas. Everyone was fabulous getting involved and although of course everything was optional, they all joined in the light morning yoga sessions by the pool.
So I decided to offer this tour again in November 2019 and why change anything as it worked? My guests loved the hotel in Costa Tesguise in a perfect location for restaurants, cafes, shops and close to the sea front. With three pools including one heated pool there was the opportunity to simply chill and recharge.
This well-being tour is not a bootcamp as whilst there are lots of activities I invite you to do as much or as little as you want but you can enjoy; sea front running and a few volcano walks/runs too. Cycle hire is prominent in this area with a variety of bikes and routes and I'm planning to offer at least one optional guided day. (Not included). You can recharge by the pool instead or wander by the sea.
Our wonderful guide is Sara, is a hearty environmentalist who is passionate about the island and has extreme knowledge of the volcanoes and the surrounding landscape. The guests fell in love with her and of course I've definitely booked her for the next tour.
So please check out the agenda below with great walks, runs, coastal treks and a night time sunset stroll with a special dinner at an infamous volcanic restaurant.
Winter sun at it's best about 23 – 26 degrees average in November..
Day 1 Arrival with dinner in local restaurant to all get to know each other. (Dinner is usually at 7.30 and we will choose local restaurants and everyone is invited to join for the meal).
Day 2 Optional sea front morning run and yoga followed by breakfast. Then we meet our guide Sara who will lead us from the Los Cuervos Volcano to Mancha Blanca viewing inside an amazing crater. This walk is in the Natural Park of the Volcanoes and we will finish with a visit to the Chapel of your "Lady of the Volcanoes", which is a very interesting local story. The walk is about 12.5 km and a steady pace to build us up. Also free tour of a winery as amazingly with the black dry landscape, Lanzarote has some unique vineyards and delicious wine.
Day 3 Morning run and yoga followed by breakfast. We then enjoy a guided walk from Costa Tesguise to Arrieta Beach with an optional swim. This walk is about 17 km taking in the wonderful rugged coastline.
Day 4 Yoga. Saving the run till later you might want an early swim or little lie-in prior to our mid-morning walk to the delightful Tesguise Old Town with a lovely old fort. This is a delightful traditional bohemic town where you can enjoy a taste of history with of course cafes or bars to relax. Enjoy lunch in an artisan restaurant and browse the traditional craft market.
Day 5 Morning Run and Yoga Then we enjoy optional guided cycling along the sea front to the coastal beach of Puerto del Carmon
Day 6 FREE Day but still optional run and yoga. A great day for sightseeseeing and a perfect opportunity to visit the Cesar Manrique Foundation. Manrique is a re nown architect in Lanzarote who made it his mission to ensure the rising tourism didn't affect the beauty of the island, designing many scuptures around Lanzarote and being involved in the building of various hotels to keep in line with the volcanic scenic views.
Day 7 Morning Run and Yoga. Enjoy cycling, swimming or a beach walk. In the early evening we are going to meet Sara again for a sunset walk from Ye- Mirador del Río. (5 km) In the words of Sara “Walking in the north of the island we will walk in the Famara Cliff where we can get great views of the Chinijo Archipielago and then return to the village to enjoy traditional Lanzarote cuisine in the " Volcan de la Corona" Restaurant Then fond farewells to Sara and fellow guests
