Route through Paradise
The day prior to departure for Stage 4 of the #eVuelta, the Canary Islands welcomed us with storms. Pepe Rodríguez and some colleagues from this stage had problems landing on the island. But once there, the Lanzarote sky opened up and showed us the beauty of the landscapes of the fire island.
We began very early at Endesa headquarters in Arrecife. There we met Germán, the Endesa employee and pilot for this stage. Whilst we loaded his vehicle for departure and to show us the island Pepe appeared eager to begin the route. The tour for this stage led us to discover some of the most spectacular natural marvels. Who wouldn’t want to get going?
Pepe was hungry, so we stopped to have lunch at the La Geria Natural Site, very close to the National Timanfaya Park. A site covered with a spectacular black cloak of volcanic ash. In this barren corner, we discovered a wine cellar that makes maximum use of this land to grow different kinds of plants and use their fruits.
After tasting typical products from the area we resumed our journey and enjoyed the lunar landscape. The variety of colours present (reds, browns, ochres, blacks or oranges) give the park an extraordinary beauty.
Our tour around Lanzarote concluded in the headquarters where local authorities were waiting to welcome us. Employees from Endesa headquarters in Lanzarote took advantage to come close and meet Pepe. It was a pleasure sharing a few moments with such nice people.
