This is a combination of the highlights of the North and the South tours. This great day out takes you to the beautiful bay of El Golfo, where the Olivina stone can be found. You will see the rugged coastline of Los Hervideros and thesalt flats of Janubio , where you will learn about the importance of the salt extraction in the island's history. We make our way towards the Lanzarote Timanfaya National Park, home to The Fire Mountains. Here you will see the geothermal experiments, demonstrating the immense power of the heat just below the surface. You will have time to visit the natural oven where food is cooked by Mother Nature, before the coach takes you on the magnificent crater tour with the best views of the lava fields.
