Does the thrill of biking get your adrenaline pumping? Are you looking for a new trail to explore? Do you love surrounding yourself with unique scenery? If you said “yes” to either of those questions, then a scenic bike safari through Fuerteventura is the perfect fit!
“Fuerte-what?” you might ask. Fuerteventura is one of the Canary Islands, owned by Spain. A major feature of this island is the attractiveness of its landscape, with lots of stone and impressive beaches.
For this particular tour, there are three different levels of difficulty available: easy, south tour, also known as the medium level, and the Fuerte-Pur tour, known as the advanced level. It’s good to have choices, right?
The easy tour will cover a distance of 28 kilometres. Beginning your journey, you will be picked up in a minibus from Fuerteventura Playa and will be driven to Betancuria. After getting your bikes, you will ride through the valley of 1000 palm trees, eventually coming to the lake ‘Vega de Rio Palma’. As you continue, you will stop for a picnic on the beach in Ajuy, a little fishing village. Continue to the caves of Ajuy before you head back by bike to the west-coast.
Covering 35 kilometres, the South tour will take you biking down uneven paths. Jandia is the starting point of this mountain biking journey, while Punta de Jandia marks the end. In between those two points, you will enjoy wondrous views of beaches and the historical Villa Winter.
Now, for all of you hard-core bikers out there, the advanced level will take you on a 50 to 80 kilometre ride filled with mountain-biking and uneven paths uphill, downhill and along beaches. Like the South tour, the advanced tour begins in Jandia. As you leave Jandia, you will bike past La Pared and stop for a picnic on the beach. How wonderful is that?! After the break, continue on to the west coast, biking through small villages on your way!
So, if you’re an adventure seeker looking for an out of the ordinary tour, then look no further than our scenic bike safari of Fuerteventura!
