Lanzarote Off-Road Buggy Tour
If you are in Lanzarote get to know it differently and spend a day of excitement driving a buggy. We suggest our guided tour of 1 hour 30 min to visit little known corners of the area and delight you with its scenery. We will make a route in the south central area of the island and take you down dirt roads by the sea and pass by Playa Quemada to Puerto Calero, where we will stop to change drivers and they both enjoy the thrill of driving such vehicles. At all times you will be accompanied by a specialized instructor to guide you during activity.
We take you on a fantastic tour in a tandem buggy and see the most important places of the island of Lanzarote. On this journey of three hours, we pass through dirt roads and highways. The route will pass through the following points:
Puerto del Carmen,San Bartolomé, Tias, Conil, Asomada, Puerto Calero and Playa Quemada.
Before starting the route, our instructors will explain the management of buggies, which is very simple. You can run a manual buggy, 1100cc or a 600cc manual.
You will travel through the central area, passing through San Bartolomé, Teguise and Famara. This tour combines road and dirt roads. Along the route, we have different stops for you to take pictures, and to eat in Famara. On the way back, pass by the stunning Timanfaya National Park.

This was the worst tour I have ever taken I have traveled in 75 countries in my life. The guides could not be bothered with us at all. Besides not even telling us after we arrived at the center what was going on, or where to go, they never really spoke to use on the entire trip. So outside of using GPS on my phone, we were never told where we were, what we were seeing or anything about the islands, its sights etc. Worst of all, my buggy was too big for me I am 5'2. they got me a pillow, and i spent most of the trip so concentrated on not losing control because i could barely reach the petals and worried, sometimes downright panicked on sandy tracks, going fast - this was not safe, especially because it was really windy. I found out later there were buggies where the seat moved forward - but they just could not be bothered. At lunch, the guides sat together and left us to our own devices, never speaking to us - except of course to tell us that only certain thing on the menu were included in the price. the only person that bothered to speak to me at all from the staff was the nice Italian that picked us up at the hotel and dropped us off. I would not recommend this tour with this company. And as i am a journalist writing a travel article, i certainly won't compliment it in my article either. Let me put it this way: I could not wait until it was over. It's a shame because Lanzarote is a beautiful island, and a buggy is a nice way to see it, and on every prior trip, i wanted to take this tour. But the only reason that i knew what we were seeing or anything about it is because i have explored this island three times in a car on prior trips, and i had read up on places, and visited them before. Most of all, I feel really lucky that i didn't get hurt or hurt anyone. What a waste of 150 euros.
Not enough information was given, didn’t mention about driving license so I left them in hotel. Soon as I get in to the bus driver refused to wait for me until I bring license and just left without me that’s how I lost 100 pounds.
Such a great experience! Mattao was hilarious, informative and safety minded. Lanzarote is such an amazing and strange landscape, what better way to be see it then by 4 wheeler. My husband and I did the 3 hour tour and it was the perfect length of time to zip along the ocean, see some salt minds, and then head up towards the volcanoes. This is a trip that is meant for the physically strong though. My husband did all the driving, even though I have used 4 wheelers on horse farms in the past. Some of the areas were quite rocky and angular and I dont think I would have had the strength to keep us on the path. Highly recommend!
