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.

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.

Christina Talks English, French & Spanish. She was an Expert and shows us locations in the desert we had Never expected. She explained it very clear and with photos. We were impressed. We van recommend Christina & the Tour to everybody. Lovely regards from Berlin. Conny & Martin

Genial! Todo fantástico y nuestra guía muy amable y con mucho conocimiento de la zona. Paramos en muchos puntos de interés del desierto y la guía nos iba enseñando fotos de escenas de los rodajes. Unos paisajes increíbles. Totalmente recomendable!

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 :)

Cristina is a competent guide who teaches us a lot about the desert. The visit is very lively and the guide is attentive to all questions. Hike to do absolutely.
