1. Tabernas Desert 4WD Adventure

Enjoy a 4WD adventure in Europe’s only desert landscape on this 2-hour scenic drive through the Tabernas Desert, situated between the Sierra de los Filabres and the Sierra de Alhamilla.

Essential to the history of cinema in Almeria, Tabernas Desert served as a location for hundreds of movies, including “Lawrence of Arabia.” Dozens of spaghetti westerns, such as “A Fistful of Dollars, “For a Few Dollars More,” and “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly,” gave rise to an era of rampant shooting. Adventure stories war films, and science fiction films have all made use of the landscape, including “2001: A Space Odyssey,” “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade,” and “Conan the Barbarian.” Marvel at the desert’s similarity to the American badlands,and the deserts of north Africa and Arabia. En route, you will learn about the geological formation of this extraordinary place, including the flora and fauna that somehow manage to survive there.

2.9 / 5

I went at the beginning of December and luckily for me it wasn't as cold or windy as it had been just a few days before. As a solo traveller, I was able to sit at the front of the 4x4 and listen to my guide and ask questions as and when needed. The rest of the group were Spanish and so as I understand Spanish I was able to keep up with the information being provided by the lovely guide who was more that happy to translate in English whenever I needed it. The guide was really good and provides a lot information about the desert and as she speaks French, Spanish and English fluently, I could see why there have been so many good reviews about her and this excursion. I would definitely recommend it.

The rock formations were really interesting and it was cool to see all the sites where the different movies like Indiana Jones were filmed! Guide was friendly and brought us around to many different locations and answered any questions we had :)

Great excursion in the desert, magnificent landscape, change of scenery The guide is great and passionate Everything was great

We have really enjoyed this tour. It is not cheap but it is worth every euro it costs.
