Camel Riding in Maspalomas Dunes
From US$14.74
Lowest Price Guaranteed
Explore the dunes of Maspalomas the traditional way on this 40-minute camel-riding adventure in Gran Canaria. Climb into the saddle and head deep into the Gran Canarian countryside on camelback with a guide. Along the way, enjoy the sensation of riding on the back of these gentle giants. Admire sweeping views over the rolling sand dunes, rocky ridges and rugged landscapes for which Gran Canaria is famous.
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.

The tour is very boring.

Not a very cool experience. It s a little difficult to rich the location & their organization is not very good. Camels after 30-40 mins walk don t have time to rest because the next turn is coming. And the tour is very boring..

Definitely an experience to remember! Half an hour wandering gently through the great dunes of Maspalomas in a camel train led by a couple of guides. No commentary, but who needs one? Just sit back, hold on and enjoy the experience as your steed lopes...More
