Camel Riding in Maspalomas Dunes
From US$13.78
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.

Probably illegal but all the better for it

No signposts to it, no health and safety procedures, just a stroll on camelback. A little expensive at €12 for 20mins but the chaps will gladly take pictures of you with your mobile.

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..

Great Experience

A bucket list tick off for our trip, we're not ones who particularly like the exploitation of animals or anything for that matter and so were a bit nervous about this. We arrived early without booking and were lucky to get on the camel with...More
