All the things that make the western highlands of Fuerteventura so special come together in this hike. Starting out at Vega de Rio Palmas, your guide will lead you through one of the island's greener corners to the fishing village of Ajuy. The area's remoteness lends the excursion a Wild West feel.
You'll head by minibus to the hamlet of Vega de Rio Palmas. From here, you'll set out by foot, crisscrossing valleys towards the hermitage of La Peña. The ample vegetation is why locals know the area as the ‘oasis of Fuerteventura'. Continue a trail along a gorge towards the coast and wave-washed Ajuy, the only village for miles around.
Ajuy is famed for its sea caves, which you'll be able to explore along with its black volcanic beaches. Rounding off the walk is a picnic lunch. Hiking time is about five hours. A great opportunity to discover the fauna and flora of Fuerteventura with an expert guide.
