Science school trips to Lanzarote
A unique geographical landscape makes Lanzarote an educationally rich choice for Science school trips where groups can investigate plate tectonics, jagged lava flows and sustainability. The geological process of Continental Drift was first observed by Wegener on this volcanic island 100 years ago. Your Science group will have fun exploring one of Europe’s few lava tube systems where students can observe the interesting chemical processes in action on the caves’ multi-coloured walls. Study underwater biology with a submarine safari where your students will see various exotic marine life including barracuda, parrot fish and sea bream. Finish your Science trip to Lanzarote at Rancho Texas Park to investigate the behaviour of various animal species before having fun and learning about physics and force on the theme park rides.

Subject Specific Excursions
Cueva de los Verdes
Stunning colours caused by reflective salt particles and the oxidation of iron make this network of volcanic caves all the more impressive. Formed around 3,000 years ago by the Corona Volcano, the tunnels extend under the sea.
Salinas de Janubio
This emerald-green saltwater lagoon is an important conservation area and the Canary Islands’ largest salt production plant. Investigate how plants survive in the saline conditions and understand why the demand for salt has changed throughout history.
Jardin de Cactus
More than 10,000 cacti and diverse succulent plants occupy this converted volcanic ash quarry and provide an important habitat for the cochineal beetle, which produces a valuable natural colourant. A fascinating location for botanists, zoologists and ecologists.
Rancho Texas Park
An important conservation centre, see animals such as pumas, buffalo and Nile crocodiles, and learn about the white tiger breeding programme. There’s stacks to see here, including sea lion and bird of prey exhibitions, or you can let loose in the waterpark.
Become a marine biologist for the day and experience the Atlantic’s underwater world. Study the marine-life outside the submarine’s windows, looking out for barracuda, parrot fish, sea bream and shipwrecks as you learn about the science of marine exploration.
