Betancuria

Untainted by the tourist route and full of cultural and traditional bounties and stunning vistas, this visit back in time has more than just its fantastic mountain views to be discovered.
Enjoy visiting the old church and watch how the island’s aloe vera products are made at a live demonstration before sampling some local food in one of the artisan cafes. We run trips to Betancuria on request.

Guided volcano climbs

Volcano excursion

Take in the fresh Fuerteventura air as you climb one of the local volcanoes. This is a wonderful way to see the island, with stunning views to the coast and inland of the volcanoes and local villages. If you are feeling super energised after class this is a great way to enjoy a bit more exercise.

Join our cycling/walking excursion which includes a guide and any necessary transport to and from the base of the volcano.

Cycling excursions

Power yourself around the island enjoying the fresh air and fabulous views. Our guided excursion takes you from the villa to the base of a local volcano where you can leave your bike and climb up for great views of the area before descending and cycling back to the villa for a well-earned rest.
