We offer you activities to do in 1, 3, 5 or 7 days. According to the time of year you travel to Gran Canaria, the different options can vary based on the weather. Although you can enjoy practically everything that we offer you throughout the year, the excursions where you see the sunset on a boat can only be done in May, June, July, August, September and October. And during the months of November, December, January, February, March and April, the other boat excursions can vary in their schedules and durations.
Find complete information about each one of these luxury activities and book directly with the company that does the activity.
In addition to the basic information related to the activity or tours’s days of departure, schedule, duration, and what is included and not included, you will find an extensive description with photos, maps, customer opinions and answers to frequently asked questions. If you have any additional questions, you can contact us at any time via phone, email or WhatsApp to clarify.
Booking is very simple and should take no more than a minute. Pay special attention to the “pick up at hotel” option, especially for inland and boat excursions, because it may be at your accommodation or close to it. You should always select this option and then indicate the area where you are staying and the name of your hotel during the booking process so that we can send you the time and place of the pick-up closest to that establishment.
Once the reservation is made, we will automatically send you an email with a reservation voucher to your email address. If you have selected a pick-up option that is not the same as your accommodation, we will send you an email with a map showing how to get there. You should always read the reservation voucher’s information and contact us if you have any questions.
We would appreciate it if you would rate our page and give us your review after completing an activity in order to serve as a reference to other people looking for the same activity in Gran Canaria.
