Flavours of Fuerteventura: minivan tour
The typical gastronomy of Fuerteventura is characterised by a genuine Majorero touch that makes it a unique experience to get to know the Canary Islands. Its particular flavours date back to the ancient Canary Islanders, who made intense preparations using their native raw materials, cereals, fish, milk and goat's meat. This island of the Canary archipelago mixes the best nuances of the land and the sea in its recipes. To understand the essence of the typical food of Fuerteventura, we must go back to its first settlers, and with them, to the typical and original products of this land, such as tomatoes, considered to be among the tastiest in Europe, or Aloe Vera. Its characteristic goats also produce Majorero cheese, protected by the Denomination of Origin since 1999 (it was the first in the Canary Islands to obtain it). The arid island of Fuerteventura is the setting for the grazing of these goats, which produce the raw material used to make this ancestral cheese with a strong flavour.
What we are going to do?
We will travel around the island of Fuerteventura in comfortable 8-seater minivans, fully air-conditioned, on secondary roads and tracks, far away from mass tourism. We will visit places of the island with a traditional architecture where it seems that time has not passed. Once at the meeting point, we will start our adventure and drive through beautiful landscapes to our first stop, which will be at a traditional aloe vera farm where we will learn about the properties of this plant. We will follow the route to the Faro de la Entallada, a place that stands out for its beauty and that will leave you speechless. Nearby there is a farm that produces organic products. We will taste 100% organic and locally produced olive oil, tomatoes and other products grown in a natural way. We will continue through picturesque villages like Pájara or Betancuria, where we will stop at one of the best cheese factories. Finally we will have a small tasting of different tapas and typical Canarian dishes, before visiting the Cheese Museum in the village of Antigua.
