Canaries Go Cheap When Flying

May 25, 2008
Many Britons enjoy hopping on a flight to Tenerife at some point during the holiday season.

For those who enjoy a more frequent holiday or even the occasional weekend getaway, there is good news. Low-cost airlines are now planning flights to neighbouring Canary island Lanzarote.

Airlines like easyJet, Ryanair, Jet2, Hapag-Lloyd Express, Niki and Sterling promise to provide more flights at lower cost to the Canary Islands. Lanzarote is already a favourite destination for many Brits. Cheaper airfares makes it even more attractive.

March saw the beginning of the new flight schedules. Gatwick airport now offers three flights on Thursdays and one each on Tuesdays and Sundays.

Previously, some of the lower-priced airlines had refused flights to Lanzarote, claiming the four-hour flight time wasn't compatible with their business model. Upon closer examination, it would be beneficial to the airlines, as well as businesses on the island, to have lower-cost travel options.

Lanzarote offers many great attractions for visitors of all ages. The Guinate Tropical Park and Penguin Paradise near Haria offers a very unique array of wildlife. The penguin enclosure, Penguin Paradise is a spectacle in itself. The underwater viewing pool gives visitors the unique experience of seeing the behaviour of penguins while under water. It is simply amazing to see how these incredible birds behave in their natural habitat.

Penguins are only one species of many wildlife featured at the park - several species of birds, animals, fish and reptiles call Guinate Tropical Park and Penguin Paradise home. In addition to the wildlife enclosures, the park offers a children's play area and parrot show.

After visiting the park, be sure to visit nearby Famara Cliffs. From the cliffs, which are 400 meters above sea level, you'll have a spectacular view of Alegranza, Montana Clara and La Graciosa.

Lower-cost airfare tickets will allow even more tourists to visit Lanzarote and view all of its wonders. Lanzarote is an island filled with culture, lore and legend. Its rugged inland landscapes provide a stark contrast against the outer beaches and coves. Lanzarote sees about 300 days of sunshine per year, making it a perfect sunny getaway at any time of the year. Cheaper airfares only add to the appeal of jetting off to Lanzarote for a weekend visit.

The Cave of Los Verdes is one of the most famous caves on the island. It is part of the Atlantida cave system. The caves were formed about 3,000 years ago during the eruptions of the Corona Volcano.

The cave's tunnel is over 6 km long with another almost 2 km under the sea. It is the longest volcanic tunnel in the world. The lowest part of the cave is used as a concert hall, a very impressive sight to behold. An inexpensive flight to Lanzarote just to catch a concert in The Cave of Los Verdes would be time and money well-spent. And while you're there, enjoy some relaxation on the beaches as well.

Although more inexpensive and frequent flights are offered to Lanzarote, Tenerife is announcing the grand opening of the largest water park in Europe.

Siam Park is a Thai themed water park that costs more than 52 million euros to build. Aside from several water based rides, the park offers roller coasters for adrenaline junkies and a children's area for the younger visitors. Those who love a relaxing beach vacation have quite the choice to make this holiday season.
