Any time is a good time to visit Lanzarote with its superb, spring-like climate all year round, beautiful array of beaches, stunning scenery and volcanic landscapes. Deciding exactly when to holiday in the Canary Islands is all about personal preference... a fantastic time awaits you!

The island’s closeness to Africa and lack of high mountains means it offers some of the best weather anywhere in the world. Summers are hot, winters are mild and there is very little rainfall.

For many holidaymakers – especially coming from Northern and Central Europe – the winter months are the perfect time for visiting Lanzarote. While the rain falls from grey skies at home, the weather remains warm even in January and February.

Whatever time of the year you choose to visit Lanzarote, you can expect the sun to shine on most days, with daily temperatures averaging 20°C (68°F) in January and 30°C (86ºF) in August.

Apart from the great weather, there are other factors you may want to consider when making your travel plans. For instance, there is an abundance of vibrant fiestas and parties to consider. Maybe you would like to time your holiday so you can catch one of Lanzarote’s major festivals? Check out more here.
