Haria is located in the northern part of the island, just below the ancient volcano Monte Corona. It is located in one of the most green areas of Lanzarote in the valley of the 1000 Palms. In the vicinity of the town you will notice intensive horticulture.
In the center of the town there is a square where it is wonderful to sit on the terraces, in the shade of the trees. Unless the weather is disappointing by exception, which happened to us (albeit in February, so well winter).
When you drive to Haria from Teguise, you drive on top of the Risco de Famara. On the left is the Penos del Chache, with 670 meters the highest point of Lanzarote. You also see the gold colored dome on the left the observatory of Lanzarote. Five kilometers before Haria, you pass a viewpoint / restaurant, where you get a first view of Haria, in the middle of a green valley, with Monte Corona in the background.
From Haria, Two valleys run to the top of the Risco de Famara (in western direction). The walk is described as circular in our walking guide, but at one point we had to improvise, as the trail was clearly gone.
