Gran Canaria: Guided Kayaking Trip

1. Gran Canaria: Guided Kayaking Trip

After meeting at Santa Águeda's beach in El Pajar (Arguinerguin), you will be provided with your safety equipment partnered with some instructions regarding your kayaking. Shortly afterwards, you will start paddling across the beach as your adventure begins while paddling through the rocks in the direction of your first stop at the Los Militares archeological site. There you will have some time to recover a little as your guide provides you with some information about Canarian culture and the last aboriginals that lived there. Getting back to your kayaks, you will continue kayaking past all the little beaches of the south-west coast before reaching Playa de Montaña Arena, one of the last virgin beaches of the island. Here you will have some free time to have a swim, lay on the sand, and rest or play beach tennis, frisbee, or snorkel. You will also be able to recover with a provided picnic consisting of fruit, chocolates, nuts, biscuits, and water.

We were helped really well. Lorenzo showed us the route to a dam we wanted to see. The bycicles were in good order and had no troubles during our trip. Would recommend to rent here! He even went the extra mile by showing us some good restaurants on the map :)
