Hiking - 10 days in OcTOber  

1st day arrival

2nd Day In the Footsteps of the Past

The summit of the holy mountain

Fuerteventura's mountains are still barely discovered. That's why this tour is not in any travel guide. We designed it for our hiking week.

After just a few minutes on foot, you can enjoy a fantastic view of the island's countryside. Far away volcanoes, gentle ridges, washed-out valleys and white houses appear.

The official hiking trail takes us to the top of Mount Melindraga. At its highest point with over 600 meters of altitude, the silence of the lonely barren landscape and a wonderful panoramic view captures us. Even the vegetation changes with each altitude meter.

The first settlers used this sacred mountain for their ceremonies and so there is still some evidence that life on Fuerteventura was possible hundreds of years ago.

3rd day Sea breeze

Beach walk Risco del Paso to Morro Jable

Sun, turquoise blue sea and fine desert sand.

This is Fuerteventura's face in the south of the island. The largest Canary Island offers endless beaches to explore on foot.

Let yourself be motivated by the fresh sea breeze to walk from the Risco del Paso to the nearest village Morro Jable. Only a few black volcanic stones and rock faces interrupt the more than 30 km long white sand beach of Sotavento.

With our bare feet through the fine sand we walk along the shore and enjoy the movement in the fresh air. The sun's rays have a vitalizing effect and make the landscape shine.

In the former fishing village of Morro Jable we take a break and stop in a small bar to relax and have a drink. With a view of the sea, we end the morning. If you want, you can go for a swim. The sea gives us strength and energy, the islanders say. Refuelled with many positive emotions, we set off on our way back.

The transfer picks us up in Morro Jable and takes us back to the hotel.

4th day sunrise on the east coast

Hiking, snorkeling and tapas

When the sun rises over the sea, a special atmosphere is created. And that's exactly what we catch when we walk early in the morning from Giniginamar to Tarajalejo along the coast. The small path is hardly known and so one very rarely meets other hikers.

Small bays and dark beaches meet us on this tour. What is interesting is the world of the tiny sea creatures that you find on the coast. These include crustaceans, mussels, fish and snails that use the harsh volcanic rock as their habitat.

On arrival in the authentic village of Tarajalejo there is the possibility to swim and marvel at the underwater world with mask and snorkel. Not far from the bathing area, we stop at a restaurant. On the route overlooking the water, a local meal awaits us.

5th day Fuerteventura's heart at your feet

Betancuria walk  &  visit to the museum

Betancuria was awarded as one of the most beautiful places in Spain. No wonder, because the town centre is adorned with small restored houses, palm trees, floral splendour and a lot of history, which you can discover in the first church of the island.

It is hard to believe that the sleepy village was once the capital of the Canary Islands and was founded in 1404.

Also special is the monastery and the chapel of San Diego de Alcala. The monastery of San Buenaventura can be found as a ruin a little away from the town centre and offers a picturesque backdrop to start our walk.

A small path connects these historic walls with the church square of Betancuria. Not far away, the archaeological museum was recently reopened, providing insight into the island's past.

Betancuria has only 80 inhabitants and today has the character of a museum village. The alleys and shops decorate our walk through the village. Typical canarian culture is shown by the beautiful patios and small terraces. With their Canarian serrenity they offer a pleasant place to drink and linger.

6th day The cave and the secluded beach

Hike to the hidden corners of the island

The fascination of Fuerteventura you will find in the hidden corners, which hardly anyone knows. So we came across this circular hike only by chance and amazed ourselves that after almost 20 years on the island even we discover new things.

The trail is easy to walk and is surrounded by the Cuchillos de Vigan of a mountain range. On closer inspection, one discovers an infinite number of other entrances to small caves, which were used as dwellings. The first settlers mainly fed on their goats and fishing. For this reason, the remains of shells and walls used for cattle breeding can still be found today.

After a break on the beach, where we enjoy a picnic, we continue our hike.

The island of Fuerteventura is known for its goat. During this hike we will see free-living animals, as there is a goat farm on our way. The most beautiful view is on the hiking trail, which takes us up to 400 metres of altitude.

7th day Wild Romantic Beaches

West Coast with sunset

During this guided hike we will show you where to find three remote black beaches. North of the village of La Pared, the rugged coastline shows its full beauty.

A special experience is the petrified light sand dune right by the sea. That's why we take a break here to let the contrast of the untouched nature work and to take unique photos. The black volcanic rock reaches far into the ocean and breaks the waves not far from our route.

Surrounded by a desert landscape, we find an ideal place to enjoy a snack of typical products of the island.

Unforgettable is the sunset overlooking the ocean. The most beautiful sunsets can certainly be seen here in the outdoors of La Pared.

Enjoy the view to the horizon and listen to the stories of your guide, who will bring you closer to this pristine area. In small groups, Fuerte Authentic Tours allows you to discover the island of Fuerteventura individually.

8th day A "cortado" pLEASE 

Short hike and walk through Gran Tarajal

Shopping and coffee in the typical Spanish village

From Las Playitas to Gran Tarajal you can reach the coast via an old path. A wonderful view accompanies us on the 5 km walk until we arrive in the Spanish village.

In Gran Tarajal, everybody can watch Spanish life on his own and secure a spot in the small village square.

Fishing boats and pleasure boats are located in the harbour, while the promenade connects the main restaurants and shops.

How about ordering coffee in Spanish today?

9th day Goat trekking special

Hiking with goats and farm visit with BBQ

Five goats go hiking with you and show the way to the mountains of El Cardon. You will be impressed by our trip with the goats, because you can touch the animals and feed them all the time. Take your best photos with the island goats while the animals walk freely.

These are the only goats in the Canary Islands that go on a hiking tour. They were trained from an early age the walks, which makes them loyal partners.

Your guide will tell you about the local tradition of goat breeding while the animals graze.

The view from the hill to the coast is unique, due to the light and shadow play. An absolutely majestic view, which has a special effect in the evening hours.

Back at the goat stable we show you what else belongs to the Ecofarm La Rosa Salvaje. Fruits and vegetables of the season by their unique taste. At the end of our hiking week we grill together on the finca and review the last days.
