"Greenlaning" in Fuerte
#1
So after finally finding a car I wanted on the Penninsula, and timing my trip perfectly to be there "on business" so as to not break lockdown rules... I came back, and within a few days had to do what I have been dreaming of for over a year now.
This is Green Laning in Fuete, No Mud, No Bog Holes, No Ditches.

If anyone else has a 4x4 and wishes to join in the future, let me know. 
I will be trying to build up a map of all the green lanes on Fuerte, and may even record some videos of the adventures.

Please note, must be an actual 4 wheel drive vehicle and not just an SUV. i will be taking some crazy paths and hills which will need all the traction possible.

edit: Hmm... photos didnt upload

Looking at putting together a small off road club for exploring fuerte.
If interested please ping me.

If you are interested in tagging along and do not have a 4x4 but rather a SUV, please also ping me. Some trips and routes may be suitable for non 4x4 vehicles and I will be building up a set of recovery gear.

In the late 90's, whilst on holiday I hired a 4x4 and went around the coast of the island as far as possible on tracks close to the sea.

I enjoyed it but my wife and children found it a bit scary. I'll always remember them screaming as I came down off the cliff top into Los Molinos.

I've done this track the other way round (Caleta to Pozzo) in a Fiat Panda. Luckily on my own as OH would probably walk back to Caleta. Especially at the part when I had to reverse up the hill at a speed, using the weight of the engine and myself to keep the wheels on the track.

Can I still tag along? Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin

Haha, I will have to take that track.

Will try to find a site that has all the Fuerte tracks on it, and if I cant find anything, then I might just make my own Big Grin

Google Earth shows a lot of the tracks (Non tarmacked) you can take, start by looking at the area south of El Cotillo.

   

Track I took from Pozo Negro to Salinas del Carmen

Haha we ended up on that road exactly on our first week on the island in a little hired Clio, made it in the end but was cursing for quite a bit 😅 
Lunch in molinos made it all worth while. :-)
