Although it might sound strange (going
on a camel ride in Gran Canaria, as opposed to getting drunk beside
the pool!) this is a very popular activity and is getting more so
The best place for camelback excursions is the famous Sahara-like
sand dunes of Maspalomas. You can watch the setting sun and pretend
you're Lawrence of Arabia, on top of your exotic dromedary!
Another good place where
rides are available is beside a pretty little village called Fataga.
The guides will tell you all you need to know about how you ride a
camel. Then you'll get to ride one of these fascinating animals
through the beautiful valley of Fataga.
