There's No Such Thing As A Stupid Question

We love answering questions about Lanzarote from people planning to visit the island. Every now and then, we’re asked some quite funny ones, and we can’t resist the occasional, slightly sarcastic answer.

We’ve saved a few up for you over the last year:

facepalm

 

Can you tell me what the weather will be like from 13th to 20th March 2016?

That far ahead, the only thing we can rule out is snow!

OMG! I didn’t know it snowed there. Will we get rain?

 

How big is a Renault Clio in Lanzarote?

The same size as the ones there.

No, I mean how big is the boot?

I just Google’d it for you – 300 litres.

So will three suitcases fit in it?

Depends how big the suitcases are.

I’ll get the measurements for you.

Please don’t…..

 

Can you buy baby milk and nappies there?

Yes. We have babies here too.

 

Could there be an eruption while we’re there?

We haven’t had one since 1824.

So you’re probably due another one then?

 

How far is it from Puerto del Carmen to Arrecife?

About 20 KM.

No, I mean how long does it take?

Depends how you’re travelling?

There will be 3 of us.

Riding An E-Bike In Lanzarote

Over the weekend we experienced E-Bikes for the first time, and they’re a brilliant way to get around the island! We’ve teamed up with E-Bike Lanzarote to offer you a choice of various guided tours you can do on these clever machines, and you can also hire the bikes to use for your own trips.

But let’s start by explaining what they are:

How E-Bikes Work

Don’t confuse these with electric bikes, where you press a button and they go. These are much more sophisticated – the motor assists you to pedal normally. Think of it like the power steering on your car – you still turn the wheel, but the electric motor or hydraulics make it easier for you, and that’s exactly what happens on an E-Bike. The motor senses how hard you’re working, and provides assistance to make it easier for you. It means you’re still getting exercise, but the motor is always making life easier for you. It’s especially  read more »
