Diving and cycling in Lanzarote - the island of fire adventure

  • November 28, 2013 · 6:30 PM

Not a fan of rain, grey skies and temperatures nearing zero? Join us at Canary Islands! With diving, cycling, visiting volcano, wine tasting and an optional camel ride this trip is an adventure packed summer escape at the beginning of winter. With the temperature highs of 24C in November and 7 hours of sunshine, volcanic landscape and warm seas, Lanzarote has a lot to offer at this time of the year!

Not only we will break away from the winter blues, but we will also discover a different and amazing volcanic landscape of this island, which is like nothing you have ever seen before. We will also get the glimpse of the underwater world with its own unique fauna and flora.

I am getting help in organising this trip from Alvaro, an old friend of mine who used to live there and first showed me round the place. As a local he will best show us the secrets of the island. And trust me, once you have done it - you will keep coming back, as I do now! 

Price: Early bird price of £230 applies if you pay in full by the end of September. In October you can still get a slight discount and pay the total of £250. From 5th November onwards the full price of £280 will apply.

The final payments have to be in my account two weeks before the trip the latest. If you have not paid by then you will be removed from the trip and your deposit will not be refunded. Bank account details to pay the balance can be found here: http://www.meetup.com/Curious-Kat-Adventure-Club/pages/Bank_account/.

Deposit: to secure your place, please pay £100 deposit + Paypal fees.

Graciosa (cycling and sightseeing) 

Graciosa is a flat island of around 28km2. There are no roads, just sand, therefore only bikes are allowed. The only cars on the island are 8 4x4! We will find the most beautiful wild and empty beaches unspoilt by the tourists and known just to few locals!  

Sunday 1 December

Morning - beach time! 

13:00 - 15:45 Lunch  and picking up the bags 

15:45 - 16:15 transfer to the airport

16:15- 18:15 Airport - time for everyone to check in and go through security

18:15 - 22:15 BA flight to London Gatwick (£119 - checked in September)

Total flights: £161.99

If you would like to reduce costs, you could take an earlier flight, which leaves Gatwick around 7:30am and is cheaper, and you could wait for us at the beach in Puerto del Carmen. I would be happy to organise a transfer for you.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
