Our 4WD tour offers a 2 hours scenic drive through the Tabernas desert, the only one of its kind in Europe.
Boasting over 3,000 hours of sunshine per year, an 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.
The importance of the Tabernas desert to the cinematic history of Almeria is inarguable. It has served as location for movies like "Lawrence of Arabia"and spaguetti westerns such as “A Fistful of Dollars, “For a Few Dollars More,” and “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly”. This gave way to an era of shooting in this spectacular landscape with movies like “2001: A Space Odyssey,” “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade,” and “Conan the Barbarian”.
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.
The Tabernas Desert 4WD Adventure will take you through the only desert in Europe. Throughout the tour we will make multiple stops to learn more about about this unique and spectacular landscape, learning about the geology and wildlife of the Tabernas Desert while at the same time visiting movie locations and discovering the importance of this landscape in the audiovisual industry.
