No doubt. These are the best excursions in Fuerteventura.
Fuerteventura has something special. It’s an island with a lot of natural spots and incomparable landscapes. The contrast between its desert areas and its white sand beaches and turquoise waters will make you fall in love with this island. Its warm temperatures throughout the year invite you to visit Fuerteventura at any time and get lost among its more than 150km of beaches.
Fuerteventura is place to relax, experience nature and practice sport. Fuerteventura was declared a Biosphere Reserve and Starlight Reserve, making it the perfect destination to get lost between natural parks and the typical flora and fauna of the Canary Islands. Let’s see what are the best excursions and activities you can enjoy in Fuerteventura.
Isla de Lobos. An essential spot of the Canary Islands
Lobos is, in reality, an islet, a small island belonging to the Canarian archipelago. It’s close to Fuerteventura and barely has 6 square kilometres of surface. If you place yourself in the port of Corralejo, you will see this Islote de Lobos on the horizon. The whole island belongs to Islote de Lobos Natural Park, which is why it is protected in its entirety. Its point of maximum height is 127 meters, which is known as La Caldera.
If you are planning a trip to Lanzarote or Fuerteventura, you cannot miss out a visit to this virgin island, full of native nature and with crystalline waters of the Atlantic Ocean that surrounds it. If you want to book our excursion I Love Lobos, you can take a ferry from Fuerteventura to Lanzarote (you will arrive in just 45 minutes of crossing!) And from there you will start the excursion to this magical island. The I Love Lobos excursion takes place aboard a luxurious catamaran departing from Marina Rubicon (Lanzarote) to Isla de Lobos.
Fuerteventura, the surfing paradise
If something is sure is that Fuerteventura is a perfect place for both amateur and veteran surfers. The strong winds that hit its coasts and its long beaches make it a true paradise for surfers. Although it’s not an excursion, surfing in Fuerteventura is part of the travel experience.
There are many surf schools that you will find on the island and in which, not only will they explain everything you need to know about the sport, but they will also show you the best places and the best days to surf.
In the Líneas Romero ferries you can embark for free your sports equipment, including surfboards and other similar materials.
Sand Dunes Discovery, an excursion to discover the Dunes of Corralejo
The Sand Dunes Discovery excursion leaves from Lanzarote and arrives in Fuerteventura, and is the ideal plan to enjoy the dunes of the Natural Park of Corralejo. You will enjoy like a child running and jumping among the white sand dunes.
In just 45 minutes you will arrive from Lanzarote to Fuerteventura and you will have free time to visit the port of Corralejo, a nice walk of shops and exquisite restaurants. Then a bus will take you to the Natural Park of the Sand Dunes of Corralejo, a place without equal in which you won’t be able to resist running between dunes and taking nice and funny pictures. The excursion can be booked with or without food included.
You can read more about the Natural Park in this post: ‘Corralejo Natural Park. The famous dunes of the Canary Islands‘.
Fuerteventura, Starlight Reserve
Fuerteventura is the third Starlight Reserve of the Canary Islands. A Starlight Reserve is one or more zones in which the natural lighting conditions are kept intact and, in this way, the maximum clearness of the sky is maintained in order to observe the stars.
From different viewpoints of Fuerteventura you can enjoy the most starry skies of the island, without any type of light pollution. Then, the Fuerteventura sky is another perfect plan to enjoy during your stay on the island. Why not prepare a route through the different Starlight viewpoints?
