Lanzarote is an island forged from the molten core of the planet, resulting in a dramatic and unique landscape unlike anywhere else on Earth. The most easterly of the Canary Islands, Lanzarote's proximity to North Africa means it enjoys a hot climate all year round, though its Spanish-speaking residents give the island a distinctly Mediterranean feel.
Sun seekers will have their pick of white sand beaches, which are scattered around the island, but it is when you head inland that Lanzarote's most spectacular secrets are revealed. The island has previously provided a backdrop for several science fiction films and television series, including episodes of Dr Who, and looking out across its volcanic landscape it is easy to imagine you are observing an alien planet.
One particularly popular destination for seeing the ongoing volcanic activity in Lanzarote is Timanfaya National Park. Featuring the ominously named Mountains of Fire, this park includes a visitor's centre which reveals the geographic history of the island and shows very clearly that the story is far from over. For a demonstration of the park's continuing volatility, visit its restaurant, where food is cooked using the heat generated by digging just a few feet down towards the awaiting lava core.
Elsewhere on Lanzarote can be found the island's Whales and Dolphins Museum. With a proliferation of these mammals in the surrounding seas there has been plenty to collect, and the museum features some impressive skeletons of these giants of the ocean.
