Lanzarote - Guardilama Volcano

The photos in this reportage are available for publishing by contacting travel and adventure photographer David Seri at:

The excursion to the top of the ridge of Guardilama volcano only takes about 2 hours from La Asomada and is fairly easy if you don´t get lost. The trails are marked with new posts.

Only part of the ridge remains up high, the other part of the volcano has collapsed over the thousands of years of erosion.

The trail takes you through lava fields full of agriculture.

And at the top there is a magnificent view of both sides of the island, specially of the Timanfaya National Volcano Reserve and La Geria.

We went in early april, which was nice weather because is not too hot or too cold. This time of year is also full of flowers..

We got a little bit lost on the way there, but our path also took us right though Gaida volcano´s crater on the way to Guardilama volcano, making the whole trip twice as fun.

*** Remember never to take nothing but photos and your trash with you. Respect nature and respect the local people. No matter how smart you think you are, there is always something you can learn. Peace ***
