4X4 Adventure

DETAILS

  • 4
    hrs Estimate Duration

Race across the island’s volcanic landscape in a 4x4 vehicle that allows you to reach remote rugged areas that most visitors never see. Fuerteventura is the oldest of the Canary Islands and much of its volcanic landscape has evolved over the eons into an arid, lunar-like setting. You will have the opportunity to pause for photos at many of those places, including Playa Aguila, a cliff-backed beach shaped like the wings of an eagle in flight. Farther up the coast, you will find El Cotillo, a beach-blessed fishing village where you can swim in the shallow waters of the lagoon. The shoreline at Corralejo is even more dramatic as a huge expanse of desert dunes lies directly behind it in the Corralejo Nature Reserve. Although the landscape may look barren, many animals have adapted to the harsh conditions, including the houbara bustard. Not too far offshore, you can spot the islands of Los Lobos and Lanzarote.


HIGHLIGHTS
• Drive off road through Fuerteventura’s lunar-like landscape in a 4x4 vehicle.
• Travel across sand dunes and along the gorgeous shore, pausing on occasion for photos.
• Take a refreshing swim in a crystal-clear lagoon near the village of El Cotillo.


HELPFUL HINTS
• Dress in weather-appropriate clothing with a swimsuit underneath.
• Bring a towel and sunscreen.
• Wear flat comfortable walking shoes.
