With its unique landscapes, sunny and windy spots, Lanzarote is for us the perfect destination to have fun with Wing Foil.
Located in the archipelago of the Canary Islands, off the African coast, Lanzarote will satisfy all your desires for a change of scenery and escape. Indeed, this Spanish island has managed to protect itself from the mass tourism present in its neighbours (such as Tenerife and Fuerteventura) and to preserve its rich and natural environment. You will find very contrasting decorations, each one more beautiful than the next, with spring temperatures in winter.
First of all, the island abounds in volcanic landscapes, inherited from its many volcanoes. You will be able to admire this spectacle of nature in the Timanfaya National Park (just to name a few).
These lunar landscapes make the cactus-populated corners of greenery stand out more in winter. It is one of the places on Earth where you can listen to complete silence, without any noise from nature. This is very rare! You can also take advantage of the fine sandy beaches and the turquoise water, in which it is possible to bathe all year round.
A sunny destination all year round, perfect for Wing Foil practice.
The weather is also what makes Lanzarote so charming. The mild temperatures (an average of 23°C) throughout the year are due to the sun, combined with the Azores anticyclone which soften the temperatures. Canary Islands are considered European Hawaii.
To take advantage of the sunshine and the most pleasant temperatures, we recommend the period from May to June, but to avoid heavy traffic, you should opt for March or September. Nevertheless, the island remains ideal for a break in the sun at any time of the year. Another advantage of Lanzarote is that it is easily accessible from the mainland, with very affordable flights and temperatures in December of up to 23 degrees. The water temperature in winter is 20 °C.
The number of windy days is expected to be high due to the trade winds (North-East wind). For us, Lanzarote is THE destination that will offer you the perfect conditions to practise WingFoil, at a lower cost in the middle of winter. The number of people who can practice Wing Foil is limited, so the atmosphere on the water is very friendly.
