Why You Should Book Your Next Lanzarote Holiday With Lanzarote Information

With the collapse of Lowcostholidays, we’ve spent much of this weekend trying to help people who have lost out to the company, who were not protected by bodies like ABTA or ATOL. Around the world, there are about 110,000 people who face having to re-book and pay for their own accommodation, before claiming their money back through they travel insurance or credit card company.

We thought it was a good time to reiterate why you should be booking your holidays to Lanzarote with us:

Bodega Hopping La Geria & El Grifo 2016

We spent yesterday bodega hopping on a residents trip with Lanzarote Active Club. Our mission was to discover the new wines for 2016 following the excellent harvest last summer.

Bodega La GeriaShiraz Bodega La Geria

We started at Bodega La Geria, where enologist Alejandro escorted us on a tour of the winery and updated us on their expanding range of Manto and Diego wines. The sad news is that this year is expected to be a terrible harvest, the months of January and February were too warm for the vines to hibernate, which caused confusion. When the vines started shooting for this year, they were 2 months late and the new growth was from the trunk and not from the tip. Together with the lack of sunshine recently, this means that the wineries are expecting a much lower yield and late harvest in 2016. Alejandro put this into perspective for us, last summer the winery produced 4 million litres of wine, this year they are expecting in the region of 1 million litres. The vines have fruited in a couple of stages this year, so are likely to need 2-3 harvests as the grapes ripen.

Pharmacy Information For Lanzarote

One of the things that will strike visitors to Lanzarote is that there appear to be so many pharmacies here, known as farmacias, and identified by the flashing green cross sign.

Farmacia

The reason is that they are an integral part of the health service here. The staff are highly trained and they should be the first port of call for most non-emergency medical treatments. 

It’s also worth noting that even basic drugs such as pain killers cannot be bought in supermarkets or other shops here, so your nearest Farmacia is the place to go for anything like that.

If you are given a prescription by a doctor here, the farmacia is where you go to have your medicine dispensed.  read more »

When Concorde Came To Lanzarote

It was on 18th November 1999 when G-BOAC, a British Airways Concorde, landed at Arrecife airport. She was bringing in passengers who were due to embark on a luxury cruise setting out from the island.

Word went out, and the airport surroundings were filled with people to watch the aircraft as she landed and taxied to the gate. Work stopped on all the other aircraft on the apron as workers paused to see the supersonic jet.   read more »
