Corralejo: Full-Day Betancuria, Ajuy, and Entallada Tour

1. Corralejo: Full-Day Betancuria, Ajuy, and Entallada Tour

This 7-hour tour takes you to Betancuria, founded in 1404. It was the first settlement on the island and its first capital. Enjoy panoramic views from a variety of viewpoints. Next, head to the depths of the caves of Ajuy. The caves were created naturally around 100 million years ago. This oldest part of the Canary Islands is one of the few places to find rocks from the Cretaceous Period. See fossils of marine gastropods, unique rock formations and igneous ocean sediments. The last stop of the tour is at the Entallada lighthouse. Perched on a 200-meter-high cliff, it guarantees incredible views.
