From caves and etchings and what remains of the former farming areas.

There are plenty of walks and paths to follow across an approximate six kilometre trail, It is a steep walk with an incline which makes the Los Ajaches walk one not for the light hearted.
Starting your walk from the village of Femés the trails wiggle along pathways, tracks, and dusty roads. There are plenty of signposts so you don’t get lost.
The untouched natural surroundings allow you the chance to see Lanzarote’s bushwood vegetation and Canary Island Spurge, that are to be found in some of the more sheltered areas.
There are many birds of prey and sea birds on the coastal cliffs if twitching is your thing.
Remember to wear suitable footwear and take food and plenty of liquids. It is HOT out there!
