Your local guide will welcome you right on the pier of your cruise ship in Puerto del Rosario and take you on your excursion to Fuerteventura.
It is already clear by the 30-minute drive to the former royal city of Betancuria, that this island has more to offer than just peace and beach. Let your eyes wander over the unique landscape and immerse yourself in the fascination of the oldest city of the Canary Islands.
You will continue to the center of Betancuria, here you can enjoy the benefits of a small, exclusive group: your guide takes you on a short walk through this picturesque town along the sights and shows you the favorite places of the local “Majoreros”. Afterwards, you will visit the Casa de Santa Maria, a farmhouse restored with attention to detail, dedicated to Canarian craftsmanship. Here you will experience an interesting multivision show that shows you the island during the four seasons.
Pajara, the community seat of the South, is next on the program. The small, idyllic village impresses with its typical Canarian houses and a small church known for its Aztec gate.
Only a few minutes away is the historic town of Antigua with the famous handicraft center Molino de Antigua. Built with a beautiful park and the largest windmill of the island, this place is a very popular destination for tourists and locals alike. The old-style houses, as well as the various workshops of traditional artisans, vividly show how people used to work and live on Fuerteventura.
Before returning to the ship, recharge yourself in the lovingly restored country hotel Mahoh in the idyllic village of Villaverde. Here you will be served a typical selection of Canarian tapas. All this combined with a nice glass of wine in a unique setting, and your day on the sunny island is complete.
On the way back, a special highlight awaits you: the unique dune landscape in the nature reserve “Las Dunas de Corralejo”. Take one last photo in the Sahara-inspired setting, sit back and let that memorable day pass before returning to your cruise ship.
