Course of events

Tejeda / Caldera de Bandama: We will start the adventure at 10:00 a.m., once we have finished with the pick-up service in Las Palmas and in the South of Gran Canaria. Then, depending on the meteorological conditions, we will go up and into the interior of the island, until we reach Caldera de Bandama, one of the most incredible and newest crater of the island. The other option would be visiting one of the considered "most beautiful towns in Spain": Tejeda. Here you will have time to buy and taste some typical desserts of the area, while you walk through beautiful cobbled streets and appreciate the different typical Canarian houses, with their characteristic and peculiar balconies.

Cruz de Tejeda: Once we have visited the town of Tejeda, we will make a brief stop at the Mirador de Cruz de Tejeda, the geographical epicenter of the island and the meeting point of most of the old royal roads, which are still used every day by numerous hikers. Is about a unique, wild, and privileged environment, with amazing panoramic views of the interior and the west side of the island of Gran Canaria. Here you can also find a market with products mostly made in Tejeda, which have a high quality, and have become recognized throughout the island and even throughout the archipelago.

Roque Nublo: After stopping at the viewpoint, we will continue with the journey and we will stop at the Parking de la Degollada de la Goleta where we will start an unforgettable and pleasant walk through the Rural Park of Nublo, where you will be captivated by the tall pine forests, and of course, the emblematic symbols of the island: El Fraile, La Rana, and Roque Nublo, all this while you taste the local products and wines.

Pico de Las Nieves: Finally, we will visit the highest area of Gran Canaria. There you will enjoy the amazing sunset and you will be delighted by the highest peak on the island, Morro de la Agujereada. In addition, you will also know the best and most beautiful side of the island, with views of the Nublo, the Bentayga, and even the Pico Teide, the latter belonging to our adorable neighboring island of Tenerife. Here you will get to see the beautiful colors of the sky that will enrich your experience and trip around the island.
