Gran Canaria Vip Tour – Guayadeque ravine, Firgas, Roque Nublo, Fataga, Valley of the thousand palms, …

Discover some of the most beautiful landscapes, villages, and places in Gran Canaria on a comfortable bus, accompanied by an official guide who will inform you about the tour’s highlights. On this excursion full of contrasts, you will get to know many of the attractions in the north, centre, and south of the island.

During the journey, you will appreciate the microclimates and constant changes in vegetation that make the island a miniature continent. We will pass through pine forest areas typical of the island’s centre, at heights over 1000 metres above sea level, to palm groves and lush vegetation below 1000 metres, and finally to the arid and desert areas in the south of the island near the coast.

Barranco de Fatagapinares

The first stop on our excursion is Barranco de Guayadeque, one of the locals’ favourite natural areas for its beauty, size and vegetation.

We will continue our tour to Firgas, located in the north of the island, to explore its town centre and discover its main attraction: a steep street divided into two sections. In the lower section, along the Paseo de Gran Canaria, you can admire an impressive cascading fountain that stretches for 30 metres.

Next to the fountain, observe the benches and heraldic shields representing the 21 municipalities of Gran Canaria, whose mosaics are reminiscent of those in the Plaza de España in Seville.


At the top of the street, just above the fountain, on the Paseo de Canarias, you can admire the mosaics, reliefs, and shields representing each island of the Canary Islands.

On our way to the Cruz de Tejeda, we will traverse breathtaking ravines like Barranco de la Mina or Barranco de la Virgen, impressing with their beauty and depth.

Prior to our arrival at Cruz de Tejeda, we’ll pause for a meal at a nearby restaurant. Lunch is optional and can be arranged directly with your guide, who will present you with various menu options (priced at approximately 13 euros per person). Alternatively, if you prefer à la carte lunch or simply a light snack, the restaurant offers those choices as well.

At the Mirador de Tejeda, we’ll enjoy magnificent views of two iconic natural monoliths on the island: the Roque Nublo and the Roque Bentayga. On clear days, you may also catch sight of the Pico del Teide, Spain’s highest peak, located on the nearby island of Tenerife, reaching an impressive altitude of 3718 metres.”

Along this journey, we will traverse one of the island’s most stunning ravines, the Barranco de Fataga, also known as the Valley of the Thousand Palms due to the countless palm trees found here.
