hiking in gran canaria
Gran Canaria is a very special island for hiking. The great biodiversity that we have, makes that in the same day we can enjoy completely different landscapes, going from deserts of sand, green forests of laurisilva, cliffs and deep ravines or pine forests of mountain. The different climates that we enjoy, also allow us to pass from a sunny and warm day to snow and cold on the highest summits.
Gran Canaria has an extensive network of hiking trails, both for a few hours and several days. On the one hand, depending on the physical level and effort, we can propose different routes appropriate to your level. Also on the other hand, we have designed different routes so that in each of them you can see completely different landscapes between them, discover secret corners, and experience the contrasts of the climates that we have.
The activity itself will depend on the choosen route. 9:00 - 15:00
Walking sticks, picnic consisting of fruit, nuts, biscuits, water, liability and accident insurances, and english speaking professional instructor.
We work with minimum groups of 2 and maximum 8 people.
Available during all year, but best season during the winter time.
LOS AZULEJOS ROUTE (MONDAYS)
Every Monday, we have a mid-level tour of The Tiled area in Veneguera.
4 hours of tour through a volcanic and semi-desert environment full of colors, Canarian pine forest and ravines with water. One of the most ancient areas of the island. If you want a cool path with good views, this is your path.
WATER ROUTE (TUESDAYS)
Tuesdays is the day we are destined to visit the north-central part of the island. A 4 hour medium level tour, in which you will discover the incredible contrasts of the island, its temperatures and its varied landscapes.
A chance to get to know the north, green and woody. A day to visit agricultural areas, waterfalls or Canarian pine forests with incredible views of Roque Nublo or even Tenerife.
ARCO DEL CORONADERO ROUTE
On Wednesdays we go to one of those secret places that a lot of people want to know about. A desert landscape with huge cactus and deep ravines in the purest Grand Canyon style!!!
We will cross the mountain through a dark tunnel, climb to the largest natural stone arch on the island and see aboriginal formations full of history. Definitely a magical, secret place.
ROQUE NUBLO ROUTE
The Roque Nublo is the symbol of Gran Canaria. The must visit of any visitor who wants to make an easy tour but with an unbeatable 360º view of the island.
In spite of being one of the most touristic places on the island, we will take you along an alternative and solitary path to access the rock. You will just have to enjoy the impressive drive to the beginning of the trail, the silence of the path and especially the views!!
REQUIREMENTS TO TAKE PART IN THE ACTIVITY
The only requirements you have to meet are: to be in good physical shape, (depending on the chosen route) not to be afraid of heights or vertigo, regardless of your age, as they can even do it children (from 12 years old and always accompanied by his parents) and above all to have a good attitude, desire to know the island and a tremendous smile on the face!!!!!
WHAT DO YOU NEED TO BRING?
We take care of everything, even walking sticks!!! Therefore, the only thing that you will need to do this activity is: sports shoes or hiking boots. During the winter season, we also suggest you to bring warm clothes and water/wind-proof jacket, as the climate on the mountains is very variable and unpredictable.
