What is a Dune Buggy?

A buggy is actually a horse-drawn carriage with one or two axes. The first motorized buggies came from VW; originated in the early 1960s in the US and were then unconventional hippy beach vehicles. Therefore, the vehicle is still known today as beach or dune buggy.

Nowadays they are small, mainly off-road vehicles, of two or four seats, suitable for the street and with four-wheel drive. These fun-mobiles run on gasoline, often have no gearshift and therefore, only have accelerator and brake pedal. Depending on the capacity, which is generally between 250 and 1,000 cubic centimeters, the engine power can reach more than 100 horses. Of course, there are also special models that are used for off-road racing whose performance data goes well beyond the above.

Normally, these little racers are kept very simple and equipped only with the most indispensable: what gives it the quaint image. Currently, buggy tours are also offered with more powerful and sophisticated models on the excursion market.

Who are Buggy Tours Suitable For?

Dune buggies are great for those who like to be casual and informal, who enjoy driving and like to experience something. And that above all, are not afraid of getting dirty, because the off-road journey becomes a really dusty affair. And in winter, small streams of rainwater may be crossed, which can also provide a good dose of mud. You must like adventure and excitement, because when sliding through the curves, one or another dose of adrenaline is released.

How Does a Buggy Tour Take Place?

First, there will be a safety briefing and the handling of these relatively simple vehicles will be explained. Then it is time to start following your guide in a convoy around the island. You will quickly get used to the simple handling of the dune buggy. But by no means is it a boring task. The versatile terrain, the off-road sections, the centrifugal force in the curves and the great scenery of Fuerteventura make the buggy safari an absolutely thrilling experience.

Buggy Hire in Fuerteventura?

Riding a buggy in Fuerteventura guarantees excellent driving experiences throughout the year. The best weather conditions prevail and the landscape seems to have been created to drive in a buggy. Buggy enthusiasts will undoubtedly find their El Dorado here: deformed fields of solidified lava, bizarre landscapes like from another world, and endless off-road driving opportunities on very different terrain. The question arises: should you rent a buggy and try to explore Fuerteventura on your own or should you join a guided buggy tour?

The buggy excursion guides know the most beautiful and hidden corners of the island. In addition, off-road tracks are officially designated and require a license, which applies to most of the routes.

The experienced guide will take you through the area safe and will be happy to provide advice on driving techniques and security.
