WALK THE ROCK 2024 – 28TH NOVEMBER – 5TH DECEMBER

Late November 2024, as the temperature cools down and the trade winds drop, Lanzarote Retreats, in partnership with Blackstone Treks & Tours, is offering a small group of people the exclusive opportunity to walk some of the most beautiful paths of Lanzarote over five days. An eco-discovery adventure not to be missed. This year we have added several stops which include a luxury winery and other gourmet delights as well as a craft market and clifftop walk.

The daily walks will be of moderate intensity and range from 6km to 14.5 km per day, no problem for anyone reasonably healthy.

During the guided walks, we will be traversing some of the most traditional and tranquil areas of Lanzarote, learning about the history, geology, culture, ways of life, and endemic fauna and flora. Jose, our experienced tour guide, is extremely knowledgeable about Lanzarote geology and he will also recommend local restaurants, wineries, and craft makers along the route.

Guests will be accommodated at Finca de Arrieta, enjoying the experience of Eco-Glamping by staying in Mongolian yurts, or if they prefer, one of the stylish cottages.

The walking group will be of no more than 14 people, as we believe that small groups provide you with the best personal approach and possible experience. We will personally pick you up every morning and return you to your accommodation after the daily walks.

“The Walk the Rock was a fantastic experience in every way. The scenery is unbeatable, great company with fellow walkers and expertly led by Jose from start to finish. As you can see, we were nearly strong enough to move volcanic bombs! I can’t recommend Walk the Rock highly enough- it’s a great way to start Christmas”  – Celia & Adrian – Walk The Rock 2019.
