Explore the interior in an open-air vehicle.  Your naturalist guide will drive you into the remote interior in our off-road vehicle. Here you will enjoy a unique educational adventure along scenic dirt roads keeping a lookout for island endemic plants and animals such as the bison and fox. (These wild animals are free roaming and often seen on our tours, however we regret that we cannot guarantee you will see them.)  Experience beautiful views of the coastline in remote locations.
