GR131 Mountain Bike Ride From Orzola To Teguise

We decided to try mountain biking the GR131 route in Lanzarote recently, starting from Órzola in the north of the island.

GR131 LanzaroteGR131 Barranco Orzola

This is a footpath that stretches 72km the full length of Lanzarote, whilst it’s great underfoot for walking, it was quite technical in places for riding. The notice board for the footpath is situated in the harbour of Órzola, from here it’s guess work as to how to get on the path, which starts from the small car park on the left just after the two supermarkets as you enter the village. After following a track past a dirt trial circuit we picked up the trail which follows the barranco towards the Aloe Vera visitor centre, it was here that the first sign actually confirmed we were on the right path. If you are going to MTB this route, we would suggest riding the road and joining at this section rather than cycling up the barranco.

GR131 Orzola to YeGR131 Maguez to Haria

From the Aloe Vera farm, the path zig zags up the hill until meeting the road further up the climb, stay on the tarmac ignoring the first footpath on the right, you’re looking for the second track which is the access road for some houses, just opposite a small white building on the left. This track climbs steeply up towards the "castle house" by La Corona. Follow the track left when it splits so that you join the  read more »
