8. Fuerteventura: Panoramic Hiking Tour
Discover the Island of Fuerteventura on a day tour. Learn about the area's distinct culture, walk along a dune path, and visit the Natural Park of Betancuria.
Begin your day with a pickup at your hotel in Corralejo, Lajares, Villaverde, or Cotillo, and hear a short briefing about the day's itinerary from your driver.
From Corralejo, drive for 5 minutes to the Sand Dunes Natural Park and admire the dunes that slide into the ocean. Take time to explore before a scenic ride along the eastern coast of Fuerteventura, passing through Puerto del Rosario, quaint villages, ancient volcanoes, lava flows, and desert landscapes.
Stroll along the white shores of Sotavento beach, in the southeast of the island. Admire the beautiful lagoons and capture the best panoramic shots on the road across the central mountains to Pájara, a quaint rural town.
Stop for lunch in Ajuy, a picturesque fishing village, and try the local seafood. Visit the black sand beach or explore the exciting caves only a 30-minute walk away. Cross the Natural Park of Betancuria, the oldest part of the island, which offers broad views over the Canyon of La Peñita.
Follow the winding streets of Betancuria, the first Castilian settlement in the Canary Islands and the ancient capital of Fuerteventura. Keep an eye out for the island's native birds, such as falcons, eagles, hawks, and vultures. Finally, witness stunning views of the Tindaya mountain (also known as the "Sacred Mountain").
