Exploring Natural Wonders

Fuerteventura boasts an array of natural attractions that showcase the island’s unique beauty. Explore the otherworldly landscapes of the Malpais de la Arena, a volcanic region dotted with dramatic craters and ancient lava fields.

And for breathtaking views of the island, hike to the summit of Pico de la Zarza, the highest point in Fuerteventura.

Immerse yourself in the rich history and culture of Fuerteventura. Explore the historic town of Betancuria, the island’s former capital, where centuries-old churches and traditional Canarian architecture offer a glimpse into the past.
