Full description
Look forward to a hike in the western part of Fuerteventura and discover Las Peñitas Ravine close to Ajuy and the chapel. Ascend the ravine to see the place where the Virgen de la Peña, the patron saint of Fuerteventura, appeared. The figure of Holy Mary can still be found in a small chapel. Enjoy breathtaking views overlooking the entire valley far away from tourist crowds. If you're lucky, get the chance to observe wild goats and raptors. Drive 5 kilometers to the fishing village of Ajuy to start the second part of your hike. Discover the amazing coastal section that is not only a natural monument but also the oldest part of the island.

There were two sections. One hike to the chapel. A short somewhat steep climb and descent through the wild gorge. Unfortunately we could not do the descent (therefore the same way back) because an international film team had blocked a part. But what was visible on the way looked good and would have ended the hike nicely. But so we had another rare experience through the film team which compensated for the descent. Part 2 took place in Ajuy, hike to the rock gate. Above the caves on the rock along the coast (approx. 45min) for a really great experience. The rock gate in the sun and the roaring blue water looked great and made a great impression on every hiker. Lunch in a typical local restaurant in Ajuy was just as good. Everything well organized by our good hiking guide Annemarie. All in all to be recommended and the pick-up service made everything perfect.

Es war ein wunderbarer Ausflug! Annemarie, unser Guide war einfach nur perfekt für uns. Wir hatten auch das große Glück, dass die Gruppe an und für sich super gepasst hat. Wir hatten diese zwei tollen Wanderabschnitte und haben uns während des ganzen Ausfluges über Gott und die Welt unterhalten. Ich kann es absolut nur noch weiterempfehlen und wenn ihr Glück habt bekommt ihr ebenfalls Annemarie als Guide. Viel Spaß! ;-)

Esperienza molto carina, la guida simpatica e disponibile. Il trekking si divide in due zone diverse. La prima parte in un sentiero nella parte più antica dell'isola. Si prosegue altri 15 minuti in macchina per arrivare sulla costa dove si può osservare un paesaggio molto suggestivo. Infine si va a pranzare in uno dei tipici ristoranti del luogo.
