An ancient route linking La Graciosa with Lanzarote
This trekking route goes along the path that inhabitants of La Graciosa took to go back and forth to Lanzarote. This four kilometre route of average to high difficulty, depending on whether it is uphill or downhill, goes along the cliffs of Famara, in the north, with the island of La Graciosa across the Río. The trek along volcanic rocks is somewhat slippery at times and ends at sea level. As a reward after the hike, a swim in the blue waters of the Río is a must.
A downhill trek among native flora and fauna
To start this trek, it is necessary to take the road towards Mirador del Rio, which is on the outskirts of Yé on the way to Guinate. It is a delightful walk with splendid views of the coastal area of Lanzarote; the first stretch on the outskirts of Yé towards Guinate is along cobbled paths and descends in zigzag. As well as the enjoyable walk, this route lets us contemplate the important fauna and flora of the area which has several protected native species.
