Full description

Explore the island of Las Palmas on this day trip in a climate-controlled vehicle. Journey to the summit of Gran Canaria, view the volcanic landscapes of the Roque Nublo monolith, and visit the Cross of Tejeda to taste some local delicacies. 

Depart from the Las Palmas city center and drive island towards San Mateo. Have some free time to visit the local farmers market which stocks plenty of local products (only open on Saturday).

Continue driving to reach the summit of Gran Canaria, which sits at 1,959 meters where you can enjoy stunning views of the high neighboring peaks, and if the weather is clear, see all the way to the island of Tenerife.

Make your way to the Roque Nublo, a huge volcanically-formed basalt rock that is over 65 meters. Stop at the Cross of Tejeda where you can taste plenty of local Canarian products such as cheese, honey, and fruit.

Visit the village of Teror, where you can go for a walk through the charming village and see the Basilica of the Lady of the Pine. Return to Las Palmas at the end of your day trip.

Beautiful experience, it is the fourth time that I come to Gran Canaria and I had never seen the center of the island and these wonderful mountains, the guide was very helpful and thorough in all its explanations (even if I didn't speak Spanish or English I understood everything) to be definitely recommended

It just outreached our expectations. The driver has seriously the best skills and our guide was amazing! We have learned and seen so much and had also enough free time. All in all well structured and perfect for everyone who wants to see the highlights and does not want to rent a car.

The tour is very well organized, no problem with the time and pick up. Thanks to our tour guide Selenf and driver Barbara, we spent a wonderful day in the mountains. Even the buys at the Saturday local markets were just about right. Selena is very observant of the tourists and her narration is both animated and interesting. I recommend the tour to everyone who wants to take their mind off the beach and the ocean.
