How challenging is FV-30 road on Canary Islands?

It’s said to be of the best riding roads on Fuerteventura. The road becomes narrow and in places just wide enough for a single vehicle. Some pretty blind hairpin turns with sheer drops ensure you concentrate on the driving and not the scenery. These are easily manageable if you drive fairly slowly and do not meet a bus.

Is the FV-30 road on Canary Islands worth it?

The heroic piece of road winds it is way up the mountains, through the Betancuria natural park, an arid, barren landscape surrounded by volcanic mountains — an environment almost more suited to a Mars rover than a car. It can be a bit hair-raising as you drive along, but if you take your time there are wonderful views, with a breathtaking series of Miradores to stop by and make a break: Mirador de Morro Velosa, Mirador del Risco de las Peñas and Mirador Las Peñitas.
