Lanzarote - explore the volcanic island by rental car
Lanzarote is the largest of the Canary Islands and a popular destination among many car rental travelers. The unique nature of the volcanic island offers great opportunities for excursions and sightseeing, which you can do with your rental car.
The capital of Lanzarote is the not very touristic city of Arrecife. This is why it is worthwhile to visit the old, narrow streets of the city and get to know the Canarian life there. One of the highlights of the island is definitely the crater of the volcano Montaña de Golfo near El Golfo. The special thing is that the crater is partly submerged in the sea and thus a lagoon has formed inside of it.

Reach the most beautiful beaches on Lanzarote byrental car
But what would be a stay with your rental car on Lanzarote without beach, sun and bathing fun? All sun worshippers should therefore visit one of the many beautiful beaches on the island. Especially recommended are the beaches of Papagayo, Honda, Playa Blanca, Las Cucharas or El Golfo.
Book your rental car for Lanzarote in advance
Pick up your rental car directly at the airport
It is best to rent a car directly at the Lanzarote Airport (ACE), because in this way the journey can start directly. If you book your rental car in advance, the local car rental company provides the car directly at the Lanzarote airport. In this way you can start your journey here immediately upon arrival together with your partner, family or as a single traveler. The offers to rent a rental car range from small cars to family cars to large off-road vehicles with which cruising and discovering the island will be a lot of fun.
Discovering the island by rental car
The barren landscape of Lanzarote sometimes reminds of a moon landscape. Because in contrast to the green Mallorca, Lanzarote is largely treeless and barren. But then, Lanzarote is not completely barren, as with the rental car, one repeatedly passes blossoming cactus fields, but also big, juicy green vines that one would not expect here. In contrast to Gran Canaria, the sister island, there are no big tourist hotels on Lanzarote. The mass tourism has not arrived on Lanzarote yet and this is exactly what makes it so attractive.

Search for offers and book a rental car cheaply
If a traveler has chosen Lanzarote, it is best to look online for offers from a car rental company and rent a car directly from home. With the rental car you can quickly get to all the exciting places on Lanzarote. As for example to the national park Timanfaya. This park is about 50 km² big and contains not only about 100 smaller and bigger volcanoes but also many plant species that are not to be found on the islands Gran Canaria or Mallorca or also on the mainland of Spain. Depending on temperature and position of the sun, the volcanoes shine in many colors, from a deep black to a fiery red.

Discover the park with a guide
In the park there are experienced guides who will take the holidaymakers to the most interesting places. The special highlight in the park is the ground opening "Islote de Hilario". But here, the traveler should only go with an experienced guide, as if water is poured into this opening, a fountain will jerk out. Also the neighboring island Tenerife offers some nature experiences with the Teide (highest mountain of the Canary Islands).
