An Excursion from Fuerteventura to Lanzarote

The distance from Fuerteventura to Lanzarote is rather insignificant with around 14 kilometers. It only takes about 25 to 35 minutes to get from Corralejo on Fuerteventura to Playa Blanca on Lanzarote by ferry. What could be more obvious while on vacation on Fuerteventura than a little island hopping detour to the neighboring island. After all, it can easily be done in only one day. Leave in the morning and get back in the evening. And in the meantime you have the opportunity to extensively explore Lanzarote. You will find that the Isle of Fire is very special.

Lanzarote or Fuerteventura? Many people are already asking themselves this question when planning their vacation. But why chose only one island if you can have both, at least for a day? You have the opportunity to experience the fourth largest Canary Island on a day trip from Fuerteventura to Lanzarote. Fire and ashes formed this extraordinary island, which was the first island to be declared a biosphere reserve by UNESCO in its entirety. There are several different ways to get from Fuerteventura to Lanzarote. You can find out what these are and what you need to consider when island hopping in the following article.

Fuerteventura Lanzarote - 2 Islands - 1 Day

Organized Day Trips from Fuerteventura to Lanzarote

The simplest and in some ways also the cheapest option are organized day trips from Fuerteventura to Lanzarote. In any case, it will be cheaper if you take into account the various services included in such a day tour. Different types of guided tours are offered. We will now briefly discuss the most interesting ones.

A Bus Trip from Fuerteventura to Lanzarote

The most comfortable way to get to know the fire island is in a comfortable and air-conditioned coach. He will pick you up at your hotel and after the ferry crossing; you will continue your comfortable air-conditioned journey. The tour guide takes care of everything, including the “paperwork” on the ferry. Once you arrive in Lanzarote you will visit the different emblematic places over there depending on the chosen bus tour. The tour guide will provide you with all the information about what you see. The included services of such a bus excursion mostly are the costs for the ferry, lunch, tastings, the tour guide and in some cases also the entrance fees for various museums or paid sights. A bus trip from Fuerteventura to Lanzarote is worthwhile for all those who prefer an all-around package and want to get to know as much from the neighboring island as possible in one day.

A Boat Trip from Fuerteventura to the Coast of Lanzarote

As is well known, the Canary Islands Lanzarote and Fuerteventura are both surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean. Therefore, a vast variety of boat tours are offered off the coast of Fuerteventura. Some of them even lead a little further away to Lanzarote. Starting from the port of Corralejo you will either go on tour by catamaran or yacht. And many of these excursion boats also anchor in front of the famous Papagayo beaches. There are beautiful, partly natural sandy beaches in eight separate bays. You will be able to visit them by simply swimming across from the boat. Other boats moor in the port of Playa Blanca so that you can visit this beautiful former fishing village, stroll over the market or have a nice meal there. Depending on the type of boat excursion, food and drinks, snorkeling or kayaking equipment and entertainment programs are included in the price. In some cases, water sports activities such as jet skiing can be booked on board. If you like the sea, enjoy the view of an island from the water and want to experience an extraordinary vacation day, you should definitely consider a boat tour to Lanzarote.

The Ferry from Fuerteventura to Lanzarote

If you prefer to travel the island on your own, you can take a ferry from Corralejo to Playa Blanca. There are three different companies: Naviera Armas, Fred Olsen Express and Lineas Maritimas Romero, of which Lineas Maritimas Romero are not transporting vehicles. The prices for an adult without a car are between 35 and 60 euros for a return trip. With a car it costs around 80 euros. According to the timetable, you can assume that there is a ferry leaving every 30 minutes. The crossing takes between 25 and 45 minutes, depending on the provider. The first ferry leaves from Fuerteventura around 6 a.m in the morning and the last one from Lanzarote goes back around 8 p.m. The best thing to do is to inquire about prices and times in advance on one of the relevant ferry booking portals, such as directferries.com, and you can also make a fix booking on there.

By Plane from Fuerteventura to Lanzarote

Unfortunately there are no direct flights between Fuerteventura and Lanzarote. Even the so-called island hoppers like Binter Canarias do not offer connections between the two Canary Islands. With Binter, for example, you can fly from Fuerteventura to Lanzarote with a stopover in Gran Canaria. But you can see that this is not really worth it. If you like it very exclusive and have the appropriate financial means at your disposal, you can charter a private plane. But we are talking about upper 4- to 5-digit euro amounts, consequently this option is probably not suitable for most people.

This Has to Be Considered

What Is Important For Island Hopping?

The most important thing you need to have with you, to get from one island to another, is your documents; i.e. your identity card or passport. You won't get on any ferry without them. This applies to all travelers, including any children traveling with you. If you want to take a ferry to Lanzarote on your own, you should be at the port about one hour before the scheduled departure. This is necessary because your boarding pass has to be printed and your documents have to be checked. Depending on the time of day, there can be long queues in front of the counters. And boarding also takes some time, especially if you travel with a car. But if you take part in an organized tour, this process is less complicated. You will be informed about your pick-up time at your hotel with the reservation confirmation. You can find out whether you need your papers for one of the tours in the detailed descriptions of the tours under “Please note!”. You will only need to provide documents, if a there is a ferry crossing included in a tour. For boat trips with catamarans or yachts, for example, these are not necessary.

What should you pay attention to when booking?

Our recommendation is to book your trip from Fuerteventura to Lanzarote days, better weeks in advance. It doesn't matter whether you choose an organized day tour or a trip on your own. By doing this, you have time to compare the offers carefully and to check which services are included and what it will cost you and your family at the end. Also pay attention to the age from which you have to pay for children and the age up to which the children's price applies. In the high seasons, such as the summer holidays and the winter half-year, tours and ferries are sometimes fully booked up. If you decide to take a trip at short notice, you might be unlucky. And finally: Find out what exactly you will need to have.

We wish you a wonderful time on both Canary Islands: Fuerteventura and Lanzarote.
