Trekking through legendary mountains and ancient hermitages
To the north of the island of Fuerteventura, the first part of the rural pathway of Vallebrón goes quite near Tindaya, a symbolic mountain in Fuerteventura which held a sacred meaning for the aborigine people. From this point you reach Enmedio Mountain where a unique way of farming can be witnessed before then going round Muda Mountain. The final part of the trek takes you to the central plains through La Matilla to reach the town of Tefia, where the Hermitage of Saint Augustine was built in 1714.
Trekking in the valley in the company of birds of prey and Canary Island Spurge
With 16 kilometres of pathways, the Vallebrón route goes through the valley in a U shape which is divided into two areas of natural vegetation mainly Canary Island Spurge and dry thickets of native plants “aulaga”(Asteraceae), “mato” and Parkinsonia. Birdlife such as the “guirre”, a Canarian species of Egyptian eagle as well as the native stonechat are of great interest. With a high degree of difficulty, this five hour hike takes you along paths, tracks and roads through the municipalities of La Oliva and Puerto del Rosario. Take suitable clothing and footwear, sun cream and enough food and liquids.
