On this tour, you’ll see a few different sides to Fuerteventura, from its agriculture to its rich history. From the port, you’ll be driven to your first stop, the statues of the Guanche Kings, near the town of Betancuria – Fuerteventura’s first capital. These tall, black-stone statues are a tribute to the first people to live on the Canary Islands, the Guanches. You’ll have a chance to snap some pictures and take in the mountain views, before getting back on the coach to head to a goat farm. Here, you’ll get to meet some of the animals, and the locals will show you how they make cheese the traditional way. Next, it’s time to step back in time with a visit to La Gayria, an 18th-century farmhouse. Take a look around the period rooms and courtyards, before sitting down for a wine-tasting session and tapas. Afterwards, you’ll drive to the last stop – a salt museum. You’ll explore this part of Fuerteventura’s heritage with a guided walk around the historical exhibits, and nearby saltpans. Don’t forget to pick some produce up in the gift shop to take home with you, too. All that’s left now is the return drive back to port to end the tour.
