Full description
On this tour, prepared for all types of explorers, you will travel back in time to discover some of the oldest stories that survive today about the people who inhabited the island before the arrival of the conquerors. Join us and explore a mountainous landscape full of enigmas, mysteries, caves, ruins and other relics that show the aboriginal life of the "Canarii" people. Your day trip will take you to the Arteara Necropolis, the picturesque village of white houses in Fataga and the historic centre of Santa Lucia de Tirajana. You'll also discover an authentic oasis among palm trees and taste local gastronomy with a tasting of tasty KM 0 products in a rural environment. Your day trip will also include a visit to La Fortaleza, an ancient place of worship used as an observatory of the celestial vault according to popular wisdom. Finally, you'll get to relax with a refreshing swim at a small black sand beach. If you're not used to taking walks, don't worry—we'll only do a few short walks. But come prepared for action, because we'll enjoy an immersive natural experience.

A consistently successful tour with a very friendly and fun guide Viktor, who took care of everything wonderfully and informed us well. The views of the countryside were very nice, the hike a bit strenuous due to the heat, but very worthwhile. It went over hill and dale. One should not be frail. At the Red Canyon we were lucky that only a few people were there. All in all a great day.

Everything was excellently organized. Our guides were excellent, Victor made everyone laugh and from Marlna we felt like we learned the full history of Cran Canaria, including answering any questions we had in perfect French or English. We got a glimpse of the interior; explored local life; made a great hike and enjoyed a delicious meal in a rather inconspicuous tavern, which you will certainly not find anywhere else in the tourist center. We can only recommend it.

A very good experience, gained a lot of knowledge. Gained a good insight into how the local people live and the history. The guide was very passionate, and very helpful and flexible. Everything well indicated in advance, clear communication. Not only attention for the tour but also for the people who participate in it
