WILD COAST & LEGEND HIKE   

Wild coast & Legend HIKE

Discover the contrasts of the island. Visit the unique canyon in Las Penitas. This place of Fuerteventura is picturesque. Ridley Scott directed the film Exoduss and used the impressive scenery. On this hike of Fuerteventura you have time to relax and take pictures.

palm treeTHE CANYON AND THE SAINT

Away from the main roads of Fuerteventura hides a small oasis. The palm grove is a wonderful contrast to the otherwise very barren desert landscape. Who would have guessed that you can hike here to a tiny chapel and be accompanied by the unique panorma view over the valley.

The first part of our hike leads up to the chapel via a narrow hiking trail that was carved into the basalt rock. Enormous rock formations are at our feet. (approx. 200 metres in altitude). Learn more about the legend of the saints and the life of the local people. Even today, the chapel and the patron saint are an important part of the local traditions, because every year in September it has its own holiday.

fishFISHING VILLAGE AJUY

Ajuy is one of the most beautiful fishing villages in Fuerteventura. Directly on the west coast you walk along the oldest rock formations of the island. 

In the bright stone walls, fossils were found that suggest a long history of origin. The oldest Canary Island once rose from the sea, so today impressive caves and rock formations can be admired.

rockTHE ROCK ARCH

Only half an hour walk from Ajuy is a little-known rock gate. Far from civilization, this rock formation of volcanic origin with a height of 35 meters is a mystical place. It seems like a gateway to a kingdom or a distant galaxy. 

The fresh sea breeze and the swell invite you to linger. After a short break we hike back to Ajuy on the coast.

icon info 01GOOD TO KNOW

The hike is divided into 2 stages. First you walk in the gorge for about 1 hour and then drive 5 minutes to the coast. There we go on to the second stage about 1.5 hours. The ground consists mostly of gravel.If you are afraid of heights, they can take individual breaks at any time.

WALKING ROUTE

Total 8 km, level light, with some altitude differences and an ascent in the gorge. Solid shoes are essential. The excursion starts in the south of the island and goes as far as Ajuy on the west coast. If you live in the north of the island, please arrange a meeting point by e-mail.

  • Liebe Kristina. "WILDE KÜSTE & LEGENDEN" war eine hervorragend geführte Tour. Super gut organisiert. Kleine Gruppe. Abwechslungsreiche Landschaft. Interessante Geschichten. Und sehr gutes Essen zum Abschluss. Auch unsere Kinder (9 und 11 Jahre) haben die Strecke problemlos gemeistert. Ich freue mich auf die nächste Tour.

  • Liebe Kristina, lieber Emilio, die Wanderung Wilde Küste und Legenden mit Euch hat mir sehr gut gefallen. Insbesondere die kleine Gruppe und dass Ihr Fuerte auch abseits der üblichen Touristenpfade zeigt, ist schön, und das leckere Fischessen möchte ich auch erwähnen. Viele Grüße, macht weiter so, Bärbel

  • Hallo ihr Zwei, nochmal vielen lieben Dank für den tollen Tag am 11.07.2018. Wirklich etwas ganz besonderes und wohltuend fernab von den sonstigen Aktivitäten auf der Insel. Meine Empfehlung hatte ich ja schon bei TripAdvisor hinterlegt, bei Holiday Check fehlt noch die Freigabe. Wenn ich das nächste Mal da bin, werde ich mich mal an eine der Wanderungen herantrauen. Bis dahin eine schöne Zeit und alles Gute !
