Lanzarote is one of the seven Canary Islands and lies about 125 km west of the Moroccan coast. The island is a popular destination all year round, but especially in winter and spring you can spend a wonderful holiday here.
While many parts of Europe suffer from cold, rain and snow during the winter months, Lanzarote has a mild, pleasant climate with temperatures between 20 and 25 degrees Celsius. The island thus offers a welcome escape from the dreary weather and a chance to escape the winter blues.
Another attraction of Lanzarote in winter and spring is the landscape. The island is known for its fascinating volcanic landscape and numerous natural beauties. The colours of the lava landscape and volcanoes are more intense, especially in winter and spring, as the rainfall helps to bring out the colours of the vegetation and surrounding landscape. A visit to Timanfaya National Park is therefore a must.
Lanzarote is also an ideal place for active holidaymakers in winter and spring. Although the sea is cooler than in summer, it is still mild enough for swimming, diving and surfing. The waves are often higher than in summer, making the island a popular destination for surfers. There are also many hiking and cycling trails that are more pleasant to use at this time of year than in the hot summer.
For those interested in culture, Lanzarote also offers a lot in winter and spring. The island is closely associated with the famous artist César Manrique, who created his art in harmony with the island’s natural environment. His former home has been converted into a museum that displays the artist’s works and his inspirations.
The culinary delights of Lanzarote should not go unmentioned either. The island has a rich choice of restaurants offering local specialities and international cuisine. One of the most famous specialities is Canarian mojo sauce, which is served with almost every dish.
In summary, Lanzarote is a great choice for a holiday in winter and spring. The mild climate, the impressive landscape, the numerous activities and the cultural sights make the island an unforgettable destination.
