Guided tour to Barranco de Guayadeque, Firgas, Fataga, views of Roque Nublo,...

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 tour is Barranco de Guayadeque, one of the locals’ favourite natural areas for its beauty, size and vegetation.
Visit to Guayadeque Ravine
In this grand valley, we will visit one of the many cave houses that are still inhabited today, a small cave hermitage and a cave pub where you will be able to eat breakfast if needed.

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.

In Firgas we will also have free time in order to see its lovely town hall and cosy church.

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.
Excursion To Roque Bentayga
Our route continues toward Barranco de Fataga, where the beautiful “valley of a thousand palms” is located.

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.
Typical Houses on Gran Canaria
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. 

*** From August 16th, due to the closure of the GC-60 road, the visit to Fataga village will be replaced by the visit to the town of Santa Lucía.

StacyJanuary 2023

Lovely landscapes. Worthwhile to see all of the ravines and landscapes in the centre of the island. Gran Canaria is lovely.

CherylJanuary 2023

We liked the route. The guide was friendly and gave precise information about all of the points that we passed. It would have been better if we would have gone to another interesting location in addition to Fagata.

LisaJanuary 2023

Great. The route is beautiful, nothing like the south of the island, so it's like two different islands. I really liked Fagata and Firgas, but almost the entirety of the rest of the route is pure nature.

FrankJanuary 2023

Worthwhile. The route is nothing like the beaches in southern Gran Canaria. The landscapes were very beautiful and the views were spectacular.

BarbaraJanuary 2023

Great organization. The guide and the route were quite good, but unfortunately the weather the day we did the excursion wasn't and the landscapes could not be seen very well.

TroyJanuary 2023

We had a great time. There is much diversity in the landscapes that are seen throughout the excursion, which we loved.

JenniferDecember 2022

It's good if you only know a little bit of the island. We did three excursions in a week and this excursion was good as a complement to the other two, but if you only have time to do one, I recommend the excursion that goes to Teror and Arucas.

KathleenDecember 2022

I would recommend the excursion. I went with my parents, who are older and for them it was very comfortable to be able to tour Gran Canaria this way and to see all of the landscapes in the centre.

LindaDecember 2022

Good tour. Above all I liked being able to see inside each cave and the island's landscapes.

GaryDecember 2022

Good tour if you already know Las Palmas and Teror. The landscapes are very beautiful and the views of Roque Nublo are spectacular, but you don't go to the most important locations on the island.

DennisDecember 2022

Wonderful. I loved the views of the places that we passed, the ravine of the Virgin made my jaw drop.

NathanDecember 2022

Some stops remained. There are parts of the route that are lovely and very interesting but I personally did not like the stop to visit the aloe vera farm. It seemed like they wanted to sell you aloe products as it was.

Lorraine S.December 2022

My two children and I went on the VIP tour last week while on holiday and it was excellent. The Guide gave a clear well informed tour from start to finish and engaged the children in the tour who were keen to hear all the information he had to offer. The driver was trustworthy in very wet conditions and interacted well with everybody on the tour. I would highly recommend this tour to friends visiting Gran Canaria to get to see more of the Island.

BrianNovember 2022

Incredible. During the trip we passed through the spectacular ravines of Gran Canaria.

MelissaNovember 2022

Great excursion. We toured the island very comfortably and saw many places. But the route was a little burdensome at times because the roads in the centre of Gran Canaria are very curvy.

JohnNovember 2022

Worthwhile. It's a very comfortable way to travel through the centre of the island. The service was great, very professional.

SeanNovember 2022

Great. We got to know some very beautiful places. Just one caveat, it is a little long because the road has many curves.

BradleyNovember 2022

Beautiful excursion. We loved the natural landscapes that we saw. The worst part of the tour was all of the curves there were between Firgas and Maspalomas.

CraigNovember 2022

Very good. The ravines and landscapes of the island that we got to know were lovely. It's the most comfortable way to get to discover the island.

DavidNovember 2022

Well worth doing this excursion. I loved that it was a lot of short stops in many places, to allow you get a flavour of the islands attractions. Our Guide was great - friendly and efficient. And hat off to the Driver for driving those mountain roads safely.

KarenOctober 2022

Recommended. The contrast between the island's southern and northern landscapes was apparent and spectacular. Now I understand why they call it the miniature continent.

MaryOctober 2022

Lovely. Beautiful landscapes, pine trees, palm groves, the village of Firgas is quite picturesque… We saw much of Gran Canaria and liked it a lot.

MarkOctober 2022

Wonderful. We took so many photos and it gave us a good idea of how beautiful the island is. Worthwhile.

KimberlyOctober 2022

We were impressed. We passed alongside the island's beautiful landscapes, which we saw from the bus. It was worth getting to know them.

TonyaOctober 2022

Okay. My husband ended up a little carsick due to the amount of curves in the route, but I know that the grand valleys we passed through on those roads were lovely.



StevenOctober 2022

A brilliant day out. Learning about different areas of the Island. Guide was very informative and knowledgeable. Would recommend this trip.
