Overview
Tour Europe’s only desert on board a go-anywhere 4WD vehicle and discover a unique landscape that has been featured in movies such as “Lawrence of Arabia” and “The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly.”
What to Expect
Enjoy a 4WD adventure in Europe’s only desert landscape on this 2-hour scenic drive through the Tabernas Desert, situated between the Sierra de los Filabres and the Sierra de Alhamilla.

Boasting over 3,000 hours of sunshine per year, an annual rainfall of a mere 200 millimeters, and temperatures ranging from 23° F to 118° F (-5°C to 48°C), the gray tones of the desert’s gullies, ravines and other geological formations turn golden when the sun rests on them at sunset.

Essential to the history of cinema in Almeria, Tabernas Desert served as a location for hundreds of movies, including “Lawrence of Arabia.” Dozens of spaghetti westerns, such as “A Fistful of Dollars, “For a Few Dollars More,” and “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly,” gave rise to an era of rampant shooting. Adventure stories war films, and science fiction films have all made use of the landscape, including “2001: A Space Odyssey,” “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade,” and “Conan the Barbarian.”

Marvel at the desert’s similarity to the American badlands,and the deserts of north Africa and Arabia. En route, you will learn about the geological formation of this extraordinary place, including the flora and fauna that somehow manage to survive there.
