Ruta de los camellos

Climb Fuerteventura's highest volcano

This hiking route will give you the opportunity to discover the nature of Fuerteventura by visiting what is nowadays considered the highest volcano on the island: Montaña Escanfraga.

After our guide picks you up from your accommodation at the appointed time, we will go to the starting point of this route, in the north of the island.

This route starts at the base of the volcano, along an easy track, known as the “camel trail”. Walking along the path that crosses the caldera, we will reach a slightly steep section, which will allow us to reach the highest point. From the top, with its 533 mt height, we will enjoy breathtaking views of the entire north of Fuerteventura. During the walk we will also learn how the local people used this volcano in the past to survive, taking advantage of the low rainfall to grow grains. After a rest and a few photos, we will start the descent back to the starting point and then return to the accommodation.
