Lanzarote is in the Canary Islands and is certainly one of the jewels in the archipelago's crown, being home to a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, as well as 12 natural protected areas, a national park and a marine reserve. The scenery on this volcanic isle is stunning, with its beaches and coastline boasting a unique, rugged beauty.
One of the things that makes Lanzarote an appealing holiday destination for Brits - aside from its glorious year-round weather - is that it's not too far from the UK. Flights to Lanzarote typically take around four hours from London, while from northern airports like Manchester or Leeds/Bradford, the journey is closer to four hours and 20 minutes long.
Monarch Flights operates services to Lanzarote from London Gatwick, London Luton, Birmingham, Leeds/Bradford and Manchester airports.

The city of Teguise itself is fascinating and was once the capital of the island, making it a great place to explore if you want a day away from the beach.

Active holidays in Lanzarote
Lanzarote is a paradise for active travellers, with its various protected areas ideal for hiking. The Timanfaya National Park, which is protected by UNESCO, is home to a selection of hiking routes and is the perfect place to escape to if you want to get back to nature. However, Lanzarote's volcanic origins mean there are plenty of amazing hikes you can go on, including treks that lead you up to volcanic craters, through ravines or along the rugged coastline.
There are also several water sports to have a go at in Lanzarote, with the island renowned for the quality of its surfing and scuba diving. The marine reserve means there is a vast array of life around Lanzarote, adding to its appeal for divers.
