Day 2: 30 December. Tefía - Casillas del Ángel - Cortijo de la Sargenta - Tefía

We enter into the heart of the island to discover a little stepped area. From the hermitage of San Agustín de Tefía, we follow the PR15, a flat path that climbs up to the degollado view of Casillas under the watchful eye of the Mountain of the Fortress, where the 595m Peak Fortress stands out. In this step we go down with the watchful eye of the native fauna that surprises us of our presence. A last sandy stretch takes us to the Casillas del Ángel - a small rural area where the parish church of Santa Ana stands out - where we take a push for ascending in zigzag until the degrowth of the Sargenta - almost stopped obliged to enjoy the greenery of the Tetir Valley. The entertaining descent towards the Cortijo de la Sargenta allows you to observe the wit of the majadas. The breadth and silence of this space makes us feel the joy of walking fully in contact with nature as we approach the degollata of Facay, from where the contrast of colors is a wonder. A rocky descent to the hermitage of San Agustín is the last obstacle of the route. Distance: 15km, Difficulty: Average, Gap: + 650, -650

Day 3: 31 December. Isla de Lobos - Corralejo - Corralejo Nature Park

We paved the road in a northerly direction to Corralejo to take the boat to the Natural Park of the island of Lobos. The islet, located only two kilometers northeast of Fuerteventura, was the old habitat of a colony of monk seals (Monachus monachus) - sea lines that name this insular land - and today it is the scene of the first part of the day. As soon as we dock into El Muelle, we move to the beach known popularly as the Concha, although Playa de la Calera is the original place name, as there is a lime kiln nearby used to build the Martiño lighthouse. Continuing the GR131, we face the north, leaving the turnoff that leads to the salt marshes of Marrajo. Under the gaze of Montaña de la Caldera, we move to a territory full of biodiversity in its purest state. Culminarem la Caldera, of 127m, the highest peak in the islet from where the panoramic view is excellent for snapshots. Leading to the Martiño lighthouse, we observe the Llanos de los Labrantes, where 1860 installed the Portuguese workers who built the lighthouse. Once we pass the Morro Colorado, which gives us a beautiful image of the lighthouse, it only remains to cross the salt marsh and climb the Martiño mountain where there is the lighthouse. This construction of 1865 along with the lighthouses of Tostón (northwest of Fuerteventura) and Pechuguera (Lanzarote), form a triangle to indicate the passage of the ships through the Estuary of La Bocaina (which separates Lanzarote from Fuerteventura) . We return to the east side of Lobos to complete the circular route for this treasure of the Atlantic.

Arriving at Puertito we return with the ship to Corralejo to enjoy the second part of the day. Now we discover the charm of the area declared the 1994 Natural Park and which has more than 130 plant species with a high number of endemisms. With a total area of ​​2700 hectares, white sand dunes combed with wind give the area an extraordinary beauty.

After crossing the white village of Betancuris, with paved earth and visit the cathedral church of Santa Maria, we start the itinerary by climbing up to the ridge of the Betancuria massif on a progressive rise that will serve as warming. As soon as we step on a flat terrain, we will head south to see the 360º panoramic view through Tegu, Degollada de la Villa, Degollada de los Pasos, Morro Janana and Morro de Tabagoste. At the junction with the local path 28 that connects Vega de Río Palmas with Agua de Bueyes, leave the vertex of the massif to descend to Vega de Río Palmas.

Day 5: 2 January Calderón Hondo - Lajares - La Oliva

The Malpaís, the area formed from the eruption of the volcano line in the north, is the setting for our route. When you get off the coach you have the feeling of getting into an unfriendly ground because the path that we follow to the lonely volcanic substratum rogenc named Calderón Hondo is a sand sea and lava 'aa'. We plot the path to the crater from where the seventy meters deep we leave behind and take advantage of it to enjoy the panoramic view of the northern part of the island and the alignment of volcanic cone sets, counting on the island of Wolves Downhill, taking advantage of the fact that we have to touch the Colored Mountain, we are going to crown it to descend carefully and direct the steps to Lajares. This small town with air surfing where some mills are still preserved, it occupies a plain with crops separated by dry stone margins. We move south to cross another malpaís, the Malpaís de la Arena, while watching the gavias -Building structures for the little rainwater that the island receives. In a gentle but constant ascent we reach the resting area from where the image of the Mountain of the Arena - responsible for one of the last volcanic manifestations of the geological history of Fuerteventura - is excellent and after recovering the breath begins the descent to La Oliva. The rural nucleus is the administrative center of the north of the island and offers several options: to cool off in one of the bars, visit the church Nuestra Señora de la Candelaria, the Casa de los Coroneles and the Museo de Grano La Cilla, between of others

We are in the south, on the Jandía Peninsula where we start the last route on the ground majorera from the town of Morro Jable, where is the Center for recovery and conservation of sea turtles. We plot the GR131 and then turn west making a sandy flanking almost to the entrance of the Barranco del Gran Valle. We enter the heart of the valley surrounded by majestic rocky massifs such as Morro de Mungía, to the west, and the Cuchillo del Ciervo, to the east and we walk the path to the Degollada de Cofete, following the one that was one of the first trails by joining the coasts of Leeward i Windward From the neck we can see the panoramic view of the Great Valley on the south face and the impressive coast of Cofete in the north. At the end of the valuable series of photographs we go down with the company of plant endemisms. Hanging at all times the coast and the village we also observe the Winter house - the German engineer Gustav Winter made it build the 1946 at a time when it had leased the entire Jandía peninsula. From the village we go down to the beach, passing through the old cemetery, where you have to take extreme precautions if you decide to make a bath. Near the coast stands the Islote to the east (at 5km) and Roque del Moro to the west (at 2,7km), which can round off the route with a walkway near the water.
