Eight Things To Do In Lanzarote When The Weather Isn't Good

It’s no secret that the weather this winter in Lanzarote hasn’t been brilliant. Apart from in November, we haven’t had much rain, but it has been generally cloudy and, by Lanzarote standards, cool. Talking to older Canarian friends, they all confirm it has been as cool as they remember it – on some days the temperature has stayed around 15 degrees. Without boring you with the details, this has been caused by an anomaly in the jet stream, which has resulted in reduced temperatures for the whole of southern Europe.

The good news is that things will return to normal, and the sun will gradually heat the land and buildings so we can enjoy our usual, much milder temperatures.

But in the meantime, here are some ideas for things to do in Lanzarote when the weather isn’t up to lying on the beach or sitting on a bar terrace watching the world go by:

Go for a walk!

Walk

All three resorts have fabulous promenades that run along the seafront that are flat and easy to negotiate, as well as plenty of places to stop for a tapa and a beer or glass of wine. Head inland, and you’ll find the island is full on fascinating tracks that wind around volcanoes, with stopping points at rural villages. Here’s more about walks in Lanzarote.

New Ducati Motorcycle Press Launch in Lanzarote

Ducati launched their last new model to the press here in Lanzarote back in 2010, and they are coming back again from 1st to 9th March to allow the world’s motoring press a first look at their new 1200 Multistrada motorcycle.

Press Launch

In their words, they are returning because they “love Lanzarote, as a unique experience!” Several car and bike manufacturers have used the island as the roads are superb here, with smooth tarmac, interesting corners and light traffic, as well as a perfect infrastructure of great hotels and nightlife to offer journalists after a hard day’s testing.
