Silversea Luxury Cruises To ARRECIFE (Canary Islands)

ARRECIFE (Canary Islands)

Nestled on the east coast of Lanzarote, Arrecife takes its name from the rocky reefs and outcrops that dominate its coastline. This pretty working city has a friendly, authentic feel, and has managed to remain true to its roots as a historic fishing village. There’s a lot to explore, and whether you want to lie back on long swathes of opulent golden sand, or strap on hiking boots to crunch across Lanzarote’s scorched volcanic scenery, this versatile capital has so much to offer.

With castles, caves, sleepy beaches, and a glittering saltwater lagoon, Arrecife is the perfect place to get acquainted with the sun-kissed appeal of the Canary Islands. Lanzarote’s charcoal desert vistas radiate a remarkable luna-like quality, but dotted cacti, waving palms, and bursts of vibrant wildflowers add an accent of colour to the canvas. Arrecife itself boasts apricot-coloured beaches and labyrinthine lanes of white-wash buildings within its Old Quarter, where you can smell fresh fish grilling, and see locals dipping delicious local salty potatoes - papas arrugadas - into colourful sauces. An evening stroll along El Charco de san Gines is a must for watching fishing boats bobbing gently on the lagoon, and watching spectacular sunsets burning across the sky. Standing tall for more than four centuries, Castillo De San Gabriel is located on the tiny island of Islote de los Ingleses, and was once a target for pirates, who would appear menacingly on the Atlantic’s horison. The stalwart 16th-century fortress now serves as the History Museum of Arrecife, and exhibitions inside explore the evolution of the city, and the ancient culture of Lanzarote. The International Museum of Contemporary Art, meanwhile, displays modern and abstract works within the 18th-century San José Castle’s refined setting. See works from Cesar Manrique - the prominent artist and architect whose slick sixties style flair can be admired across the island.

Excursions in ARRECIFE (Canary Islands)

Island Drive by Twizy

In this tour you will be driving a Renault Twizy electric car through Lanzarote, enjoying in an environmentally friendly manner the island and its attractive. Whilst on tour, you will visit the César Manrique Foundation (FCM), founded by César Manrique in 1983 and became operational in 1992. Its headquarters is at the artist's former home at Taro de Tahíche, Lanzarote. Sited in an extraordinary palm grove, the César Manrique Museum and home is the most valuable example of the artist's interpretation and re-creation of the values of traditional domestic architecture on Lanzarote. Starting from the ruins of a former rural manor, in his approach he applied modern criteria while exalting traditional local construction and its harmonization with nature. We will continue the tour to the Crater Volcano Cuervo, located between the national Park of Timanfaya and Geria. It is a volcano of rather small dimensions. According to the volcanological history, the first volcano to open was known today at the grassroots level with the same of La Caldera de los Cuervos. A short technical stop will be done in La Geria to recharge the Twizy and we will end again in Puerto del Carmen.

LagOmar Visit

Discover Museo LagOmar, one of the most spectacular private properties in Lanzarote, during this memorable half-day excursion.

LagOmar Museum

After tendering ashore and a 200-meter walk, depart Arrecife port for an approximately 30-minute drive to Museo Lagomar. The Museum is one of the most spectacular private properties in Lanzarote, featuring natural labyrinths and caves formed from lava. This former home was the vision of Cesar Manrique, who dreamed of a residence inspired by Arabian nights' mythology. With the help of artist Jesús Soto and developer Sam Benady, he brought his vision to life, forming a private residence within a volcanic quarry.

In the early 1970s, actor Omar Sharif came to Lanzarote to film "The Mysterious Island." After discovering LagOmar, he fell in love with the property so much that he bought it from the original owner. Unfortunately for Omar, he bet the house over a game of bridge with San Benady, having no idea the man was a renowned bridge champion.

Refreshments, African Exhibition Gallery & Guided Tour

Upon arrival at the property, sip an included glass of Cava while nibbling on some canapés. Next, see the spectacular residence on a guided tour, including the African exhibition gallery and museum, which hosts itinerant exhibitions and sponsors emerging talents on the island. The existing caves were refurbished using wood and artifacts from local shipwrecks, for the beams and lights. Local flora was incorporated in the design: cactus, palm, aloes and bougainvillea, to form an oasis within the rock. They used glass, washed concrete and pebbles to generate circular patios, the lake, cascades and a series of curvaceous spaces avoiding all forms of square tiling whatsoever.


At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach for an approximately 30-minute drive back to the ship.

Lanzarote Wine Tasting

Back in centuries some literary references to Canary wine where already made by William Shakespeare in some of his key works such as Henry IV. We could interpret through these old references that the origins of this wine are ancient. Malmsey is the main protagonist of this variety of wine and it is so the area of Geria, where the vine-growers have faced a hostile way of soil of lava, shortage of rain and strong marine winds. Along this tour you will discover the secrets of harvesting and producing of wine in this region, where the malmsey grape wine triumphs for the atmospheric conditions unique in the area generating great wide range of dry and sweet wines. The experience takes you to two of the most iconic cellars of the island in a wonderful route across the arid and volcanic landscapes of the region that will seduce you with its brown, amber elegantly colored wines.

Lanzarote through Manrique’s Eyes

Explore a trio of the most important landmarks on Lanzarote Island through the eyes of artist César Manrique during this picturesque, half-day sightseeing excursion.


Arrecife, Iconic Landmarks Created by César Manrique

Depart the pier for a scenic tour of three of the many top destinations inspired by César Manrique's pioneering vision of how man and the environment interact. To this day, his vision still influences how Canary people think about their islands, and especially, Lanzarote. This artist from Lanzarote knew how to transform the volcanic caves into places full of peace, silence, harmony and beauty. The blue, white, green and black colours get mixed up, and give these places their amazing pulchritude.


Guided Visits to the Mirador Del Río Viewpoint, Cueva de Los Verdes and Jameos del Agua

An approximately 40-minute drive north brings you to your first stop, Mirador del Río, an incredibly panoramic viewpoint created by Manrique on an approximately 1,560-foot-high (about 475-metre-high) escarpment called Batería del Río. Following your visit, re-board your coach and proceed for guided tours inside the stunning Cueva de Los Verdes and Jameos del Agua. Both are part of an approximately 3.7-mile-long (about six-kilometre-long) lava tube formed about 4,000 years ago when La Corona Mountain erupted. Molten lava continued to flow as the surface hardened, which, in turn, led to the formation of the tubes, which run down under the Atlantic Ocean.


Large Caverns, Illuminated Cave Walls, Volcanic and Architectonic Elements, Free Time

The word 'jameos' refers to the large openings in the tube that formed when parts of the roof collapsed due to a pressure build-up caused by the volcanic gases. One such cavern, Jameos del Agua, forms the entrance to the Cueva de Los Verdes, whose cave walls are illuminated by colourful lights. It is these open-air caves that Manrique used as the centrepiece for the attraction; places where the buildings engage in a constant dialog with the natural surroundings, making the volcanic and architectonic elements blend in tandem. Following your tour, some free time is made available to explore your surrounds at your leisure. At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 30-minute drive back to the pier.

National Park of Timanfaya & Exclusive Visit to Salinas del Janubio

Experience the lunar-like beauty of Timanfaya National Park, and a private tour and tasting at a salt pan during this panoramic, half-day sightseeing excursion.


Arrecife, Timanfaya National Park, Guided Walking Tour, Lunar-Like Volcano Route

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately 30-minute drive to Timanfaya National Park, famous for its volcanos and similarity in appearance to Mars and the Moon. If it were not for the intense blue of the sky, many photos taken in Lanzarote could be mistaken for its lunar-like landscapes. Upon arrival, take a guided walking tour of Timanfaya National Park and a route leading towards the volcanoes. Along the way, learn about your surrounds and marvel at the spectacular panoramic views of the unusual landscape.


Salinas del Janubio, Private Tour and Tasting

Next, re-board your coach and continue on for a private tour of the Salinas del Janubio. Here, see locals working on the salt pans, and the Bodega where they keep the salt. Afterward, proceed for a tasting of their salt flower, a form of pure salt collected according to very traditional techniques of marine origin. This salt is collected manually, and does not go through any industrial process. It is stored in containers for a year, allowing the sun and wind to dry it into a pure product, produced without additives or transformation, and with very limited production.


Los Hervideros, Waves Crashing into the Caves

Salinas del Janubio was once cropland terrain, but, in 1895, the locals turned them into salt pans as a way to better-preserve their food and achieve a salt source within the island. The rich colours and architectonic shapes, combined with the black sand from Janubio Beach, give it a singular, striking image. Leaving the salt pans, re-board your coach and head for a visit to Los Hervideros, an amazing natural phenomenon in which waves force water into the labyrinth of caves with such dramatic power, it appears as if the sea is bubbling and boiling. Following this once-in-a-lifetime experience, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 30-minute drive back to the pier.
