Tabernas Desert by 4x4

Book This Shore Excursion
Starting from £150.72 GBP / Adult
Experience the stark beauty and movie-making history of the Tabernas Desert on a 4x4 adventure that rumbles through this unforgiving landscape. Your exploration will be led by a local guide who’ll tell you about the territory’s geological history as you come across its most freakish formations and natural phenomena. Learn how Tabernas lay beneath the Mediterranean Sea until tectonic shifts lifted the sedimentary basin millions of years ago. You’ll also learn how Hollywood fell in love with the desert, using it as a location for spaghetti westerns like “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly”, as well as iconic films such as “Lawrence of Arabia” and “Raiders of the Lost Ark”. Continue to a local olive oil mill, where you’ll explore the sustainable practices used to grow olives in this harsh environment. Enjoy an olive oil tasting before heading back through the desert to Almeria and your waiting ship. This tour is provided by an operator that has been third-party certified to meet the Global Sustainable Tourism Council's Criteria for Tour Operators.
