  • a pharmacy and a bakery,
  • 5km long beachside promenade with free outside gyms,
  • a steakhouse, a burger joint and an authentic Spanish tapas tavern,
  • an assortment of other various cafes, pubs and bars, restaurants, etc.







Once you are approved participant for the sprint, we'll get everyone to a shared communication room to help organize accomodation.

Note that the accomodation is not covered by the sprint budget.

If you are planning to come with your family and/or stay longer, Nejc Zupan has written a remote worker's guide to Lanzarote.


We'll organize catering (breakfast and lunch) during the sprint, which is paid by the sponsors.

There are a ton of options for dinners in nearby restaurants.


Fill out the form to apply.

The deadline is 16th June, you'll be notified if you're part of the sprint a few days later.


To be determined once registration closes based on attendees interest.


The best way to travel is via a plane to Lanzarote airport.

It's also possible to fly to other island airports and then take a short flight or a ferry (Fuertaventura is closest being 30min away).
