Walking The Gran Isla LOC

Visiting: Spain
Trip Duration 8 Days

Walking In Gran Canaria

The Canary Islands offer some of the best walking anywhere in Southern Europe. The volcanic island of Gran Canaria in particular offers far more than the beaches it is best known for. Staying off the beaten track in Aguimes on the eastern side and La Aldea de San Nicolas on the western side of the island, we discover dramatic volcanic landscapes, steep gorges, high peaks, semi-tropical valleys and unspoilt hillside villages as we explore the 'Gran Isla' by foot.

Tour Highlights

  • Aguimes - A traditional Canarian village
  • La Aldea de San Nicolas - Hiking in the remote west of the island
  • Guayadeque Canyon - dramatic ravine with stone age cave dwellings
  • Roque Nublo - a distinctive rock formation and Gran Canaria's most famous landmark
  • Pico de las Nieves - Hike up Gran Canaria's highest peak
  • Historic trails - Follow 'caminos reales' and ancient paths between hillside villages
