As you travel northwards, enjoy a visit to the old capital of Teguise, declared a site of historic and architectural importance. You will also make a stop at the Haria viewpoint, which offers breathtaking views of the northern headland and neighbouring islands.Your journey will continue to the Aloe Vera Farm tucked away in the village of Orzola. Aloe vera is a typical plant of warmer regions and one that grows exceptionally well on the island of Lanzarote. The plant is used for a multitude of purposes from preventing wound infection to being a valuable ingredient of skincare, it can even be taken orally. During your visit you will have the opportunity to try some aloe juice or liqueur.Afterwards, you will head to Manrique's Jardin de Cactus, filled with over 1,500 cacti from more than 100 different species found in Lanzarote, America and Madagascar. The Garden is a stone-built enclosure and provides a stunning background for these unusual plants. It is also in this area that the cochineal beetle has been cultivated. The beetle lives on cacti and its larvae are used to produce the valuable red colourant, cochineal, formerly found in drinks such as Campari.During your visit, enjoy some time to wander around the garden and relax with a refreshment at the on-site café, before the return drive to the port.
