Lanzarote is simply stunning, and unsurprisingly, it is a popular summer holiday destination for families. However, we at Prestige Holidays are certain that this Spanish sanctuary has just as much to offer in the autumn.
Why Skip the Summer?
Popular tourist spots can often seem rather overwhelming during the peak summer months, and finding a quiet beach to entertain the little ones can be almost impossible. Personally, I enjoy Lanzarote during autumn when there are fewer crowds so that I can fully appreciate the island’s natural beauty.
For families in particular, the climate is also an important factor to consider. Travelling abroad in the height of summer can often leave you with uncomfortable children with red noses, so a trip slightly later in the year when the heat is less intense is perfect.
Last but not least, travelling in autumn gives you the opportunity to experience the fantastic family-friendly events that are taking place on the island. Here are our favourites:
Lanza Event Cruiser
This event is the perfect day trip that can truly bring families together. Just a thirteen-minute drive from Seaside Los Jameos Playa Resort, you can enjoy this interactive volcano tour and have time to relax over a delicious meal at the hotel restaurant when you return in the evening.
The tour boasts several thrilling surprises for the children along the way, including earth, fire and water simulations and an optional camel ride. Wander through the Timanfaya National Park and admire the fantastic volcano landscape, all the while learning about plate tectonics and the park’s vast history.
