Fuerteventura, December 2014

Christmas holidays on Canary Islands again. This time Fuerteventura. A nice oportunity to escape the ugly German weather.

This time I have explored the island in many different ways: A sightseeing trip by bus, on a quad, on jetski, during a hike and on a dirt bike tour.

1 The flight

We go directly from Berlin Schönefeld

Lanzarote in sight
2 The Hotel

... is located in Costa Calma at the eastern shore. It welcomes us with a nice sunset

The next day a heron stops by
and we enjoy the sun and the pool
3 The sightseeing tour by bus

shows us nice mountains
At Ajui beach we have a look at the rocks
Dad stays down at the beach
I climb the rocks
A donkey has to scoop water in Pajara
I like the cactus garden
Nice mountain views
In Corralejo we can see bird island Isla de Lobos in the dust
It is quite windy
Impressive and beautiful dunes in Parque Natural de las dunas
A goat cheese museum with old wind mill "Molina de Antigua"
4 The quad tour

The tour guide and I ride a quad. The other participants take buggies.

Ready to start
Nice views at the western shore

The "famous" surfer beach of La Pared at the west coast
Back to the east coast with view to Costa Calma
5 The hike

I do a hike tour on my own through the desert scenery at the smallest part of the island. I walk over to La Pared and back.
