What does the experience include?
A few hours in La Graciosa is all you need to cast off the last shred of stress. Because there’s no place on the eighth Canary Island for the word ‘fatigue’. You will understand why as soon as you’ve crossed El Río (which is what the locals call the strait of ocean separating Lanzarote from La Graciosa), landed in Caleta de Sebo — and begun strolling around the sandy, unpaved streets and exploring the unspoilt landscape of the Chinijo Archipelago Natural Park.
What you need to know
First Minute Travel, a local company specialising in organising tours, will pick up customers at various points around Lanzarote and take them by bus to Órzola, the island’s northernmost port. There you will board a ferry for the 20-30 minute crossing to Caleta de Sebo, La Graciosa’s main town.
From then on, you will have four hours completely to yourself to roam the tranquil streets of Caleta de Sebo, go hiking or cycling, or make your way to one of the island’s stunning beaches, such as Montaña Amarilla (in the west) or Playa de las Conchas (in the north).
Located one kilometre to the northwest of Lanzarote, La Graciosa forms part of the Chinijo Archipelago Natural Park — which also includes the islands of Alegranza and Montaña Clara and the islets of Roque del Este and Roque del Oeste. Its volcanic, sparsely-populated landscape makes this island of barely 29 square kilometres into a haven of perfect peace in which you can lose yourself… and find yourself again.
