Fuerteventura Island Tour and Scenic Ferry Ride from Lanzarote

Start your day trip with a pickup from your Lanzarote meeting point, and travel by air-conditioned coach to Playa Blanca, on the island’s southern coast. Board the ferry for your 30-minute crossing to Fuerteventura, an island that basks in the sparkling Atlantic to the south. Your ferry ticket is prebooked, so there’s no need to wait in line at the port. Once on board, sit back and contemplate the views over the waves and Fuerteventura on the horizon. Head south through Fuerteventura’s dramatic, stark landscapes to Betancuria, the island’s former capital. Cradled into volcanic hills, this ancient whitewashed hamlet was named after the 15th-century Norman explorer, Jean de Béthencourt, who conquered the island. Stroll around its pretty squares independently, and perhaps visit pretty Santa Maria church to see its fine Baroque altar. Next, trace the corkscrew mountain roads to a spectacular viewpoint. Take photos of the breathtaking mountain scenery in front of you and look out for the cheeky chipmunks that make a point of visiting the spot. Continue to Pajara, a traditional village famed for its Church of Our Lady of Regla, which boasts two aisles and Aztec-style door carvings. Wander around as you wish and then head towards South Corralejo, passing by Puerto del Rosario, the island’s capital. Continue to the spectacular National Park of Fuerteventura. The sight of this 6-mile (11-kilometer) expanse of giant sand dunes merging into the aquamarine sea will have your camera working overtime! Afterward, return to Corralejo and, following your ferry crossing, finish your tour with a drop-off at the meeting point.

Fuerteventura Airport Private Transfer

Turisbeds offers you this transfer service so you can go from the airport of Fuerteventura to whatever location you need and vice versa. A driver will pick you and the rest of the passengers up, in case you book for more, and take you on a car or minibus wherever you need to go. When the transfer happens from the airport to your hotel, the driver will pick you and drop you off directly at your place to stay unless there is any impossibility, such as the hotel being at a pedestrian street, a close road, etc., in which case the driver couldn’t be accountable for getting the luggage to the hotel reception, but they will do everything in their power to help you. Even though it is far from likely, there might be a chance that your airline cancels your flight and makes you travel on another different from the one you booked. In this case scenario, and especially if this happens the same day you travel, please contact us immediately by telephone so we can be aware your new flight information. If the cancellation happens days prior, you can simply let us know via e-email: booking@vimotions.com. If you loose your flight and get to travel on the next one, please call us because otherwise we will be waiting for you when the previous plane lands. In case of a delay, there is no need for you to do a single thing; we are constantly monitoring the flights and your driver will be at the airport at your time of arrival, whatever it is. When the transfer happens from your hotel to the airport, the pick-up will be by default 3 hours before the departure of your flight.  It is rather important that all passengers show up with their luggage at reception at the agreed time. It may be nicer to wait in the gardens or at the pool, but some hotels are too big and complicated, so finding you could be difficult. As an additional courtesy, may we ask you to wait as close as possible to the main gate. This way, everything will flow easier.
