Mountain Bike Tours

Mountain bike tours on Lanzarote

Lanzarote is an ideal place for cross country mountain biking. On tracks and goat paths you cycle through the bizarre landscape of lava and craters. The majority of the tours you can start from the Puerto del Carmen area. The longest downhill track is 8 km, most of the others are between 1 and 3 km. In between, there are downhill and uphill stretches with different levels. The routes have a grade of difficulty mainly between S 0 and S 2 and some S 3 and S 4 ( see www.singletrail-skala.de).

Almost all of the tours offer short cuts and alternative routes which spare the steepest climbs and descents.

Arrieta – Orzola –Mirador – Haria – Arrieta
Distance: between 30 and 49 kmAccumulated altitude: between 980 and 1430 m
The north, relatively green with the oasis in the valley of Haría, offers a refreshing contrast to the Timanfaya lava field.

The 9 km downhill from Tour 5 can be integrated in Tour 4.

Tour 7: La Graciosa

Time seems to be standing still on La Graciosa. There are no tarmac roads and the inhabitants are mainly fishing. On your cycling trip around the island, you will come to pass some of the finest beaches of the Canary Islands. Caution is advised because of currents close to the beaches oriented to the north (La Concha). There are no major climbs, but the ground is partly so sandy that you have to push the bike sometimes for short distances.
