What we are going to do?
After pick-up at the accommodation we will head to the starting point in the north of the island. Walking along the path known as "ruta de los camellos", we will reach the highest point of the volcano Escanfraga mountain, which, with its 533 meters of height, is the highest volcano of Fuerteventura. As we walk we will learn how the local people, in the past, used this volcano to survive, taking advantage of the low rainfall to grow cereals. We will make a short stop to rest before we start our way back to our accommodation.
