We transferred to the extended tour of North Fuerteventura. We were picked up in a minivan, together with one other couple and visited some of the highlights of the island. Our guide was attentive while giving us space at the same time. Especially the volcano is a must see if you are in the neighborhood. The hike up the volcano is not very far (about 15 minutes), but the last part is quite steep with loose and sharp rocks, so make sure you wear the right shoes.

A great experience, the trekking was more difficult than I expected, I am not saying it is difficult, but for me it was, but thanks to Pepe, the guide, I was able to do it, thanks Pepe, and also to the canine companion. Walk through the ravine was wonderful, the lighthouse has spectacular views and the return coasting all the beautiful north.

Great day out with a great knowledgeable guide. Good bikes, easy to get the hang of, and a fab way to see the north of the island
