What to Expect
Discover the center of Fuerteventura on a combined panoramic and trekking tour. Following a hotel pick-up between 09:00 and 09:30 (available from the towns of Corralejo, Lajares, Villaverde and Cotillo), enjoy a short briefing from your driver, who will explain the itinerary and listen to your particular requests. You will travel in a small group of no more than 8 people.
From Corralejo, travel through the inner lands of Fuerteventura, passing the towns of La Oliva, Tindaya and Tefia. Tindaya is home to the Montaña de Tindaya (also known as the "Sacred Mountain"). Stop for a coffee on a spectacular balcony designed by the Canarian artist Cesar Manrique. Enjoy panoramic views of the north of the island from Morro Velosa.
Continue to La Presa de la Peñita and marvel at the huge canyon with its 23-meter tall dam. Then take a 3-kilometer walk around the canyon, which should take approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes. It's an easy footpath and the pace will be slow in order to appreciate the natural reserve.
Enjoy lunch in the town of Pajara. You will have 1 hour to decide where to eat and relax. Your guide can suggest some typical and economic places to eat, before taking you to the seaside town of Ajuy with its suggestive black sand beaches and huge caves. It's a short walk, with the possibility to enter the caves during a 40-minute stop. If time allows, take a look at the aboriginal village of L'Atalayita and its pre-Hispanic ruins.
On the way back to Corralejo, stop at the Natural Park of Las Dunas and discover a desert of huge dunes that slide toward the crystal clear waters of the ocean. Board the van and drive back to Corralejo for drop-off at your hotel.
