Discover some of the oldest stories that survive today about the people who inhabited the island before the arrival of the conquerors. Join us and explore a mountainous landscape full of enigmas, mysteries, caves, ruins and other relics that show the aboriginal life of the "Canarii" people.
Your day trip will take you to the Caldera de Tirajana, the picturesque village of white houses of Santa Lucia de Tirajana and its historic centre. You'll also discover an authentic oasis among palm trees and taste local gastronomy with a tasting of tasty KM 0 products in a rural environment. Your day trip will also include a visit to La Fortaleza, an ancient place of worship used as an observatory of the celestial vault according to popular wisdom. Finally, you'll get to relax with a refreshing swim at a small black sand beach.
If you're not used to taking walks, don't worry—we'll only do a few short walks (2 Km). But come prepared for action, because we'll enjoy an immersive natural experience.
