Lanzarote is relatively low in altitude compared to the more westerly Canary Islands. The highest point in Lanzarote is on Las Peñas del Chache at 670 metres high, on the Famara cliffs in the north of the island.
But despite its little elevation, in Lanzarote you will find some fantastic viewpoints in ideal locations to admire the entire island from up high.
