School Trips to Lanzarote
Lanzarote, was born out of firey eruptions, and is the fourth largest of the Canary Islands. It lies 79 miles off the coast of Africa. Students of all ages can experience firsthand the dramatic volcanic landscapes, mountain ranges, desert and 213km of diverse coastline.
There are 500 different types of plants and lichen across the island, and over 10,000 cacti can be seen at the Jardin de Cactus. It has fascinating historical and scientific attractions and has been awarded UNESCO Biosphere Reserve Protected Site status.
Discover pathways through the longest volcanic cave in the world, watch steam erupting from the ground, take it slow on a camel ride, investigate the immense salt flats or see the traditional cultivation methods used at the vineyards. This is a fantastic fieldwork destination at any time of the year due to its pleasant climate.

Timanfaya National Park
More than 100 volcanoes devastated this UNESCO biosphere site during a series of 18th century eruptions. Today, the park’s lunar-like landscape is home to extinct craters, rare plants and historic lava flows.
Visit this Lanzarote village and experience the fascinating Visitor Centre, which is semi-submerged in a sea of lava. Learn about the volcanic activity of Timanfaya National Park, the birth of the Canaries and the structure of the Earth through impressive interactive displays.
Salinas de Janubio
The Canary Islands’ largest salt production plant is also an important conservation area, where flora and fauna thrive in the saline conditions. Explore how plants have adapted and study the area’s development from a natural lagoon to a major salt refinery.
Cueva de los Verdes
This volcanic tunnel was formed by an eruption of Monte Corona, around 3,000 years ago. A network of caves extends above ground and under the sea, with more than a mile’s worth accessible to visitors and illuminated by colourful lights.
House of Volcanoes, El Mirador
In 1973, Artist Cesar Manrique carved his underground home into volcanic rock that created by the world’s longest eruption. A sustainable development, El Mirador features volcanic chambers which are naturally lit by skylights created by burst lava bubbles.
