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

Discover some of Gran Canaria’s most beautiful landscapes, villages and places. On this excursion full of contrasts, you will get to know many of the attractions of the northern, central and southern areas of the island.

The abundant vegetation, cool and humid climate, and the green and leafy landscapes that we will find in northern and central Gran Canaria look very different from the arid and dry, almost desert-like areas typical of the southern area of the island.

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

Our next stop will be at an aloe vera farm, which grows the Aloe Barbadensis Miller type. There we will get to know the medicinal properties of the plant and learn why Gran Canaria is an ideal place for its cultivation.

We will continue our tour toward Firgas, to the north of the island, in order to explore its main street, the Paseo de Gran Canaria, one of the most beautiful and charming streets on the island. Located there are its waterfall fountain, ceramic benches whose mosaics represent the 21 municipalities on the island, and a representation in relief of each of the 7 islands that form the Canary Archipelago.

On the road to Cruz de Tejeda, we will pass spectacular ravines, such as Barranco de la Mina or Barranco de la Virgen, which are impressive due to their beauty and depth. 

From Cruz de Tejeda, which is the highest point of our excursion at 1450 metres above sea level, and from the Tejeda Lookout, we will enjoy some magnificent views of the Town of Tejeda, considered one of the most beautiful in Spain, and of two most important natural symbols of Gran Canaria: Roque Nublo and Roque Bentayga.

And it’s precisely in the heart of this valley of a thousand palms where we will have our final stop in order to discover the town of Fataga. Walk through its peaceful streets and observe the traditional Canarian architecture in the facades of its houses.

As we approach the area of Playa del Inglés and Maspalomas from Fataga, we will see that the green and fertile landscapes become arid and desert-like. You will notice, once again, the contrasts of the island that make Gran Canaria known as the Miniature Continent. 

Upon finishing the excursion and returning to your hotel, we hope that you go with the feeling of having enjoyed many of the island’s attractions and you carry unforgettable memories of this VIP Tour of Gran Canaria.
