On air from Lanzarote Island

34 CI 010 Sergio

Lanzarote, island Las Palmas province , is the easternmost of the Canary Islands (autonomous community) Spain. It is located in the North Atlantic Ocean.

Lanzarote is one of the most fascinating of the Canary Islands.

As soon as you step foot on the island, you notice the unique colours of its volcanic landscape contrasting with the blue of the Atlantic.

There are hardly any trees, but the plant life is surprisingly lush and beautiful.

The villages are full of little white houses, and the horizon is endless. Here nature lives side by side with art.
