Tabernas Desert 4WD Adventure

1. Tabernas Desert 4WD Adventure

Enjoy a 4WD adventure in Europe’s only desert landscape on this scenic drive through the Tabernas Desert, situated between the Sierra de los Filabres and the Sierra de Alhamilla. Boasting over 3,000 hours of sunshine per year, annual rainfall of a mere 200 millimeters and temperatures ranging from 23° F to 118° F (-5°C to 48°C), the gray tones of the desert’s gullies, ravines, and other geological formations turn golden when the sun rests on them at sunset. 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 “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade,” “Conan the Barbarian", "Game of Thrones", or "The Crown". 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.

Very knowledgeable guide of a broad knowledge of the subject well beyond what was expected. Scientifically well documented. Thank you for having enriched our knowledge and made it an interesting two hours.

A great tour! Informative, with a 4x4 experience Maria our guide, with a lot of information about the area, history, etc. Including a bath in a cove that we would not have gone alone.

Activity to do absolutely. We were lucky to have a guide who spoke perfect French and who was very interesting. A real sharing. Thanks to her.

It was a great excursion. The driver and guide MARIA was charming with all of us and told us very curious things.

It has passed very quickly, it has been very entertaining seeing areas that otherwise could not be seen.
