A long trek over the geological tracks of Lanzarote

Located in the south western region of Lanzarote, Los Ajaches is a big volcanic formation which takes up the southern part of the island with a mountain range in an area of leeward winds and stony windward flat areas. The municipality of Yaiza is home to an important archaeological heritage with caves, etchings and remains of former farming. This area, the oldest on the island, still undergoes major wearing away due to erosion which in the last ten million years has carved out the ravines which go through this natural route in Lanzarote.

Canary Island Spurge and brushwood on an arid trek

This six kilometre route, with a notable incline which makes the Los Ajaches walk more difficult, starts in the village of Femés and goes along pathways, tracks, pedestrian ways and roads. These natural surrounds give us the chance to see arid bushwood vegetation and also Canary Island Spurge in the more sheltered areas. The animal life includes steppe birds, birds of prey and sea birds on the coastal cliffs. Remember to wear suitable footwear and take food and liquids.
