Camel Riding in Maspalomas Dunes

Select Date and Travellers
USD 13.50

    What to Expect
    You’ll feel like a desert scout, or even like Lawrence of Arabia as you ride a gentle camel along the seemingly endless dunes of Maspalomas. You don’t need to ride on the hump, by the way, as the camels are fitted with comfortable 2-seater saddles!

    The ride on these gentle giants lasts for around 30 minutes and takes place in the desert landscapes of Gran Canaria. Imagine that you’re in the Sahara desert on this ride that’s accompanied by Saharawi guides.

    Enjoy this unique way to discover the interior landscapes of Gran Canaria. Note that children younger than 3 years of age can ride with their parents for free.
