Five goats will join you on a hike through Cardons’ mountains. You will be impressed by our animal experience because you can touch the animals and feed them all the time. Make your best fotos with the island goats while the animals are running free.

These are the only goats in the Canary Islands that go on hiking routes. They have been trained from a young age to go out and  join in on the walks, which also makes them loyal partners.

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

  • A few words about my experience with Fuerte Authentic Tours. Thanks you Kristina and Emilio!...For taking us, a group of 16 students (WWU University of Münster ), on a wonderful hike with your goats. It was awesome to see how much energy the goats have, climbing the beautiful cliffs of Fuerteventuras West coast near La Pared. Some Cactus fruits, traditional Gofio and other self-made snacks have been very delicious. Kristina and Emilio seem to know a lot about the island and its vegetation. Definitely a highlight, especially when the forecast tells you to do sth. else despite surfing etc.

  • Liebe Kristina,wir haben mit Dir und Deinen drei Ziegen einen unvergesslichen Tag verlebt. Am Meer entlang, an herrlichen Felsformationen vorbei, auf kleinen Pfaden, abseits aller Touristenströme zusammen mit Deiner Familie Mäh - einfach nur herrlich.Wir haben viel gelacht und haben viel von Dir gelernt. Stets kam deine Liebe zu Fuerte mit ihren Bewohnern bei uns an. Ob zu den Menschen, Pflanzen, Mineralien oder Tiere - mit Detailwissen hast Du unsere Fragen liebevoll und geduldig beantwortet. Dann hast Du noch alles für ein Picnic mitgenommen, das wir in einer kleinen Bucht -fast ganz für uns alleine- genossen haben. Auch gab es Zeiten einfach in Ruhe, in denen Jede/Jeder von uns die eigenen Gedanken und Bilder ganz in Ruhe ziehen lassen konnte.Dieser Tag hat uns die Insel anders sehen lassen. Falls wir irgendwann noch einmal nach Fuerte kommen sollten, werden wir uns wieder bei Dir melden. Wenn wir von unserem Urlaub erzählen, ist dieser Tag immer unser Highlight. Danke Dir noch einmal auf diesem Wege. Und Du hast noch so viele Ideen. Wir wünschen Dir von ganzem Herzen viel Erfolg mit all Deinen Vorhaben.Herzliche Grüße von Heike & Holger
