7 Hours of sun a day in February? That’s Lanzarote For You

The Haria region, Lanzarote

The Haria region, Lanzarote

It’s little wonder that Lazarote, part of Spain’s Canary Islands, is so popular as a winter escape. Even in February, there’s an average of seven hours of sunshine a day.

The image (right) was taken on a walking route in Haria, in the island’s north.This region receives the lion’s share of rainfall which, added to the rich volcanic soil, makes for an area rich in wild and endemic plant life.

    Having been there quite a few times, I can definitely confirm that it is a great place to go especially when you’ve had enough of winter. Wonderful light, air and walking.
