Quad / Buggy tour in Boa Vista

The experience of a quad or buggy ride through the golden dunes of Boa Vista, dirt roads full of clay, areas of volcanic eruptions, tropical oases and fabulous beaches is one of those things to do absolutely.
It is fantastic to be able to follow winding paths surrounded by nature, far from the city and everyday life. You will be immersed in the beauty of an uncontaminated island, in total safety, in the company of expert guides.

The guides speak all the languages, they will explain how to drive safely and they will tell you the wonders of Boavista, indicating the routes. During all the tours, active all year round, you can stop for a swim and take pictures (or roll in the dunes). During the tour you travel in single file, to avoid ending up in chasms or dangerous points. Cruise speed allows the driver to have everything under control.
