The basics

Guided tours of the Janubio Salt Pans include a walking tour of the lagoon and salt pans, which produce up to 10,000 tons of salt each year and are the last remaining in Lanzarote. Learn about the salt production process, using water pumped from the neighboring lagoon into the different pans, where the water is evaporated and the salt crystals are harvested. Get hands-on experience harvesting some of the salt, learn how different types of salt including fleur de sel are sourced, and sample some 100% natural Canarian salt.
