No. 1 - Hiking in the Nature
Guided hikes are well received by any age group, however you should be a bit fit and free from fear of heights. In the national parks (Spanish: parque natural), the mountains and at the coast, you can get to know the unique landscape and the breathtaking nature up close. The authentic Fuerteventura is waiting for you with unforgettable views. And your tour guide will give you lots of interesting information about the island and its people.
No. 2 - In Search of Dolphins and Whales
For many it is a dream to experience these fascinating sea mammals in the natural habitat. The likelihood of encountering whales and dolphins on such a dolphin boat trip is very high as large groups of different dolphin and whale species are native to the waters around the Canaries, or cross the islands as they travel through the oceans. In the Canary Islands it is possible see whales and dolphins, in every season.
No. 3 - Discover the Island by Bus
The great interest proves that bus tours are popular with everyone. Especially for those who do not want to give up any comfort while they get to know their holiday island. The air-conditioned and modern coaches take you to impressive places from El Cotillo, across Corralejo and Betancuria, along the sand dunes to the Jandia peninsula. You see the most beautiful sights and the tour guide knows a lot about the country and people. You just have to take your seat, relax and enjoy. Driver and tour guide will take care of everything else for you.
No. 4 - Fun With a Buggy
Very popular for fun and adrenaline junkies. Because with a Buggy Tour you basically get a fun and adrenaline warranty. If you have a driver's license and your passenger is at least four years old, you're ready to go. You experience the landscape of Fuerteventura in a very special way with these unusual vehicles. It's fast, leads through narrow paved curves and the wheels sometimes spin through on the dusty off-road slopes.
No. 5 - Out into Nature by Horse
Popular with absolute beginners and advanced riders alike. You can take part in a riding trip in Fuerteventura, even if you have never sat on a horse. The rides are laid out at different levels so that everyone can explore the nature of this Canary island in this special way. The trained and knowledgeable riding guides will instruct you in detail.
No. 6 - Boat Trips
When vacationing on an island, a boat trip is not be missed. Big and small sailors enjoy swimming and snorkeling. Those who love relaxation and tranquility are better off on a smaller motor or sailing yacht for a maximum of 12 passengers. However, if you are in party mood and sociable, an afternoon on a party boat or a larger sailing catamaran is just what you are looking for. With music, cool drinks and good food.
No. 7 - Over Hill and Dale in a Jeep
Jeep safaris are extremely popular. You do not feel like driving yourself? But you are looking for a little more action than in a conventional bus tour? Then this somewhat crazy tour is the best alternative for you. Make this bumpy and dusty tour your holiday special. Young and old can take part. Drive to places that you would never have reached otherwise. Enjoy the views and get to know this Canary island from its rougher side.
No. 8 - Action on a JetSki
It is the most popular water sports activity. You can ride this power package as of 16 years. The vehicle is mastered quickly. You should be a bit fit to run a Jet Ski, as your body will constantly be shaken by short flight and the subsequent bounce on the water, as you rush across the waves. Explore the coastal side of Fuerteventura along sandy beaches or rough cliffs with your guide and let the sight captivate you.
No. 9 - Under the Water
Diving also belongs to the most popular holiday activities, especially because you rarely have the opportunity to do it at home. The holiday on Fuerteventura is just right for it. It does not matter if you already have experience or not. If you are healthy and you can swim, then you can start this adventure with an introduction dive or a snorkel trip. If you fall for it, you can sign up for a diving license right away.
No. 10 - Holiday Anglers
As popular as ever, because you can find the really big ones off the Canary coast. It is a great event all year round because each of the two seasons has its own appeal. In the winter, you go bottom fishing for small rays, sharks or octopi and in the summer, trolling for marlin or tuna. Everyone can try fishing. You will be taught by absolute professionals on board. If you do not want to fish yourself, you can also participate in this adventure as a spectator. That's really much better than "playa y sol".
