the north of the town of Lajares and
towards Corralejo, a series of volcanoes are aligned,
which generated 50,000 years ago and they did increase the area
of Lanzaroteand Fuerteventura also bringing it closer
to creating the island of Lobos.
The Calderon Hondo is one of the best preserved and has
a crater 70 meters deep.
Access to this impressive
volcano is very simple, and can be made from several ways:
from Corralejo, from Lajares, or from the road from Corralejo Lajares.
All these trails are marked and
there are ways well adapted.
Upon reaching the top, we found a
vantage point from which to contemplate the 70 meter depth of
this amazing volcano, and that soon we will be greeted by
squirrels that come to us for food (do not forget
to bring cookies or nuts to feed these people in the volcano).
From this viewpoint there are
also stunning views of the other volcanoes that make up
this natural area and are close to Corralejo.
can encircle the volcano's
crater with caution if you so enjoy spectacular views of the
north of the island (El Cotillo, Majanicho, Lanzarote) and Lajares, plus
all the"badlands" which was formed in the eruptions of
There are also many small prey
and large black crows, as well as herds of goats that graze at
the edges of the crater. A highly
recommended tour of minimal difficulty because the
whole route is well marked paths and comfortable.
