Such a great thing to do while you’re out in lanzarote. They take pictures for you and you can keep all of them for €10. You go up to a really nice viewpoint too and the views while driving are amazing. Highly recommend.

I was on holiday in Fuerteventura last week and I enjoyed this beautiful buggy driving experience near the wonderful town of Corralejo (dunes, asphalt, rough road) ... Adventure to try once you get to this island ...

Beautiful scenery, all rough gravel roads in the Park. A Jeep is definitely better suited for the road condition and allows access where a rental car can’t get to.

We have adored! It is true that you have to go by road to reach the stony paths. The guide was friendly, we recommend this activity to do in Corralejo.

really worth the event, though from hotel to hotel wasn't 8hrs. might be better to do the 6hr one if you don't want lunch or the camel's.
