Tour through the center of the island while crossing Gran Canaria from north to south and get to know its most emblematic sites.. Beautiful landscapes, spectacular ravines, historical and charming towns and monuments that make this excursion the most complete to truly visit Gran Canaria.

The tour starts by leaving the tourist areas of southern Gran Canaria in a northeast direction towards Arucas.

Once in Arucas, you will see the impressive neo-Gothic church of San Juan Bautista, built during the twentieth century, considered by many canarian inhabitants a cathedral.

On the way to Teror (our next stop), you can spot all kinds of fruit trees. Teror is a traditional town with a high historical value. Visit the famous Basilica of the “Virgen del Pino” (patron saint of Gran Canaria for whom the local people profess a great devotion) and stroll through streets that invite you to get lost in a town full of post-colonial houses , with cool courtyards and typical Canarian balconies , mostly made of pine.

Leaving the village of Valleseco, you will pass by typical cave houses (houses embedded in the mountains ), many of which nowadays are still inhabited.

During your excursion look for the contrasts of the regional flora. Gran Canaria is known as a “Miniature Continent” due to the diversity of climate and vegetation on the island. Enjoy, from a height of over 1000 meters, landscapes of singular beauty where the Canary Pine (Pinus canariensis) predominates, as well as ferns, fennel and other endemic flora.

During the trip, we will take a break for lunch. It is not included in the price, however you can eat at a place of your own choice or enjoy a varied menu (approx. 11 €).

The tour continues to the Cruz de Tejeda where we will stop at the viewpoint of Becerra (1550 metres high). This place provides an ideal view to the iconic monoliths Roque Nublo, Roque Bentayga and “Preacher”, striking symbols of Gran Canaria. Take pictures and, with fine weather, Mount Teide, the tallest mountain in Spain with 3.718 m, might show its peak (Pico del Teide) on the neighbouring island Tenerife.

The excursion continues to San Bartolome de Tirajana. Again you may notice the gradual change of vegetation as we return to the south of Gran Canaria. You will find as you advance, more palm groves and plants belonging to the family of succulents. This resistant flora is spectacular and has perfectly adapted to the scarce rainfalls in the region.

The viewpoint of “Degollada de la Yegua” will be one of the last stops of this tour, where you can admire different scenarios: Stunning mountains that Unamuno described as “Petrified Tempest”, deep ravines full of palm trees, and Playa del Inglés with the sand dunes of Maspalomas and the Atlantic Ocean in the background.
