Full description

Explore Gran Canaria on a guided day trip from Las Palmas in an air-conditioned 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 inland 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 Pico de las Nieves, 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.

This tour was really good and recommended if you want to explore the area. The roads are very narrow and winding, so if you don't feel like driving yourself, I can recommend this tour. You have different stops, even in small towns, but it is so warm that at some point you no longer have the strength to look at everything so closely xD Fran was very nice and had a lot of information.

It was an awesome experience! We enjoyed our day from start to finish. I strongly advise you to take this excursion if you are looking for an activity to do. The views were amazing and great for taking pictures. We had the chance to taste local cuisine, and warm. In addition, the guide Vera is very nice and explained to us very well the course of this day, as well as the information concerning the visit.

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
