You will visit the natural beauty of the town "El Tanque", in the northwest side of Tenerife Island, with a very fun camel ride (You can choose to be dressed as a Middle Eastern to have even more fun!). We will start with a 20-25 minutes camel ride along farmland trails, native flora and protected natural spaces. You will watch different species of native animals such as the Canarian goat, the Pelibuey sheep, donkeys and ponies. The first stop is at San Pedro’s viewpoint, where you will appreciate in all its fullness the fertile north coast and the wonderful protected landscape of La Rambla de Castro. You will see palm trees, banana plantations and different buildings such as La Hacienda de los Castro, or the old water lift of La Gordejuela. Once we get to the park and enjoy the camel ride, you will be able to try the lunch between 12:00 and 16:00, consisting in 2 dishes, bread, wine and water. Taste the canarian sauce "mojo".
