Activities included in this package

Beach yoga (1hr.) – 5 sessions

Tjasa, your yoga instructor, is waiting for you at the beach. Her many years of experience allows her to guide you at your level and pace, often offering variations during the practice. The style is gentle flow, suited to everybody. She adjust to what you like or need, yet she might challenge you throughout the week! With the sun coming up, and the sound of the waves passing by this is the right way to start your day!


Volcano hiking (2-3 hrs.)

Although Fuerteventura volcanoes have been dormant for thousands of years, exploring the perfectly preserved craters is still a must, when visiting this beautiful island. The guides will take you to the ones with the most exquisite views and amazing (hi)stories.

Some of the volcanoes and mountains are overrun by hungry chipmunks, others with prehistorical engravings. Some, you will conquer by foot, some you can do by E-bike, alongside some other highlights of the island, either secret or popular.


A hike excursion through the ‘Las Peñitas’ canyon & caves of ‘Ajuy’. (± 6 hrs.)

A 1 hr. road trip will take you to a true Fuerteventura oasis. Barranco de las Peñitas, is a hidden yet spectacular jewel of the island, a setting of many Hollywood productions. After an active hike of about 1,5 – 2 hr. we will continue our road trip with a short 10 minute ride to the caves of Ajuy. 

Immerse in the local life of the small fishing village and visit the beautiful caves. This is an easy – 30 minute walk along the ocean and its stunning cliffs of the West Coast before you enter into the impressive caves, 

 We will finish our tour with a delicious tapas lunch in a typical local restaurant.


Trip to Los Lobos Island with a hike and beach time (± 4 hrs.)

Another unforgettable excursion is a half-day trip to a nearby islote, Los Lobos. After a 15 minute – exciting boat crossing you will start your guided hike all around the island and conquer the top of the highest peak, if you are up for it. After an approximately 2.5-hour walk, you will stop at the natural pools to take a dip at the beautiful turquoise lagoons. If you feel like skipping the hike, you are very welcome to lay down the towel and just enjoy the magnificent bays. Los Lobos is a definite “must” when visiting Fuerteventura, you will instantly understand why!

Instructors

Tjasa (RYT-200 SuryaSakti Yoga and RYT-200 Yin Yoga) has been practicing and studying the teachings of yoga for over two decades. She has trained in Dynamic Vinyasa, Hatha, and more recently yin yoga. For her, yoga is a way of connecting to the divine, finding stillness, staying in the present, and feeling grounded and balanced. She holds a certificate in plant-based nutrition through e-Cornell and believes that yoga combined with plant-based lifestyle leads to vibrant health, wellness and compassion on the planet. She is also nature and lifestyle photographer specializing in yoga photography.

With over 15 years of extreme sports coaching experience, Bas knows what it takes to make sure that your private surf session or an E-bike tour is a great success in a safe way. Fuerteventura is famous for its all-year-round perfect conditions, but the key is to have the knowledge and experience to know when to go where and what to do when. Bas is an expert at that. He likes to take you out of your comfort zone, but lets you progress and enjoy your experience at your own pace and tempo. Besides being a certified and experienced watersport instructor, he is also a certified lifeguard.

Location

embed google my maps

 

The former fishing village of Corralejo is located in the north Fuerteventura. The variety of old traditions mixed with modern style makes this town echo a warm and personal vibe. It is surrounded to the north and east by the Atlantic Ocean, by dunes to the south and by arid desert land to the west that leads to the western coast and El Cotillo.


The area has 11 km of fine sand beaches just outside of Corralejo, alongside some smaller bays across the coast. In addition, there are several miles of sand dunes located nearby, which have been designated as a nature reserve. The waters around Corralejo are clear and an intense shade of blue. The town’s beaches are somewhat more sheltered and have a band of volcanic rock along the shoreline.

Frequently asked questions

Climate and temperature

Is Fuerteventura not too warm for the activities in the summer?

Fuerteventura is famous for it’s year round warm climate, in the summer months we enjoy the trade winds that give us a refreshing flow of air, yet we aim to run land activities such as hiking in the morning or late (sunset) afternoon hours.


Extra activities

How do I book extra activities?

If you like to add extra activities such as surfing, catamaran experience or E-bike rides, then we recommend to add this to the comment section of your request. You can also book these activities whilst you are here! 


How do we meet?

On arrival

We come and pick you up from the airport, the drive is about 30 minutes to your accommodation in Corralejo. Once we are there, we will show you around the town to make your arrival as smooth as possible. 

On departure

All the good things come to an end, what a bummer. But we make sure that you are in time at the airport for your flight home. Usually we organize your pickup time from your accommodation during your stay. 


What do I need to take with me?

Land activities

For all the activities that we do on land, such as hikes and E-bike rides we recommend to take sports clothing and trainers with a good profile, feel free to take your hiking shoes. For a bit of extra sun protection we recommend a cap as well and a mini backpack so you can always carry a bottle of water and an extra layer of clothing with you (temperatures can change quickly, we are in the middle of the ocean, so we suggest several layers of light clothing, in the winter months a jacket as well).

For the yoga session, we provide a yoga mat. Hydration is important, and to prevent plastic waste, we recommend to take your own drink bottle.

Water sports

For all the waters ports we take care of all your equipment. All you have to take is swim wear. We take care of the rest!

Sun protection

Fuerteventura is a sunny place! Isn’t that great?! But off course a high SPF sun cream is important. Please bring at least a SPF 30 or more. Don’t worry, you will come home with a beautiful sun kiss, but let’s prevent the classic sunburn! If you need a small shot, you can always ask us, since we always carry sun creams with us! 


Level of activities

How high is the level of activities?

We are an active holiday company, but not a boot camp. What is important for us, is that you can enjoy the activities on your own pace, tempo and level. We adjust to you and we are famous for not wearing watches! Yet, we do like to take you out of your comfort zone from time to time. Our coaches and guides are very experienced and we can lay the bar as high or as low as you want!
