10 Highlights not to be missed

A camel ride next to a sea of dunes

Gran Canaria offers you a host of opportunities for a holiday with a difference! Have you ever thought of enjoying a fun camel ride? No? Well in Gran Canaria you can join a rare camel expedition through the Maspalomas Natural Dune Reserve.

More than four hundred hectares of yellow sand form part of this unique landscape, which tends to be more exceptional if one visits it on this unusual mode of transport! Although you won’t truly be in the middle of a desert, travelling around a field of dunes on the back of a camel will make you forget just how close to the sea you really are! Experiencing the sensation of walking the Dunes of Maspalomas to the rhythm of a camel’s pace can be a whole new experience. Come on, give it a go!
