Detailed description

Hiking on Fuerteventura: Goat trekking in the mountains of El Cardon

The Canary Island of Fuerteventura is particularly appreciated by nature lovers, because its wonderful nature invites for swimming, hiking and other outdoor activities. Discover the countryside while goat trekking and enjoy the absolute peace and quiet far away from the usual tourist routes. The excursion starts in the south of the island near the mountains of El Cardon, a beautiful natural landscape that was sacred to the natives.

The tame goats Nube, Rayo and Torito will accompany you on this Fuerteventura hike through the mountain landscape. As the only migratory goats of the Canary Islands, they have been trained as pack-goats from a very early age and are faithful companions. The goats are affectionate, tame and listen to their name. You will be amazed at the climbing skills and the pleasant nature of the three siblings. They run sometimes free and sometimes on a leash. Surrounded by barren, bizarre, partly desert-like landscapes, the tour guide will take you to a resting place where you can take a break. There a Canarian picnic awaits you in the nature. A good sip of wine is not to be missed, along with a variety of other regional delicacies. The animals stay with us and rest.

Afterwards we walk on through rugged riverbeds until we reach our starting point again. With a fantastic view over the nature reserve of El Cardon you will walk in small groups for about 6 to 8 kilometres. It goes up and down and the ground changes from gravel to fine sand. Sturdy shoes are essential for this hike. The rugged landscape surprises with a wonderful play of colours and soft shapes. The animals are present throughout the entire hike in Fuerteventura and the goats are very tame, affectionate and listen to their name. It will be fun to admire the little goats while climbing and enjoy their gentle nature. At the same time the dear four-legged friends run free and yet are always looking for your closeness, as they are very familiar with people. A true nature experience with mountains and animals!

Great tour

We did the tour with the goats today and thought it was very nice. The goats ran along casually and what we particularly liked was seeing that the goats were quite happy, so that both humans and animals benefited from the tour. Clear recommendation!

Super Tour

Wir haben heute die Tour mit den Ziegen mitgemacht und fanden es sehr schön. Die Ziegen liefen zwanglos mit und was uns besonders gefallen hat zu sehen, dass es durchaus glückliche Ziegen waren, sodass von der Tour sowohl der Mensch und das Tier was von hat. Klare Empfehlung!
