The perfect program that you can book here in Gran Canaria. Thoughtful and caring people and really nice horses, including some rescued ones too which is a big plus imo. You can see how much they love these animals. The adventure is nice and rly good in the terms of duration. We went for 2 hours and as novice and advenced horseriders we both had fun. You can experience gallop and trot as well. Various landscape and nice view.

it was amazing, the whole experience was good. it was our first time via ferrata and now we love it. it was not too easy and not too hard. some parts being enough adrenaline and some parts enough time to enjoy the view. you can choose easy or hard parts in between, so for everyone there is a challenge. our guide Dani was excellent. he knows very much about the area and the sport. we surely recommend to book this

Because you can only give 5 stars, but we are so enthusiastic, we give 6 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. Super friendly guide, it was super interesting and never got boring with Marcel thanks to a lot of background knowledge and humor. The nature was impressive and Villa Winter was more than worth the visit. All in one, highly recommended, great tour and worth every penny!! Djisbs

Couldn't recommend this more. The interior of Gran Canaria is stunning and often missed by tourists sticking to the resorts. Jose was a brilliant, friendly, funny and knowledgeable guide and an expert driver, which helped with some of the narrower off-road mountain tracks!

Marcel made the experience very interesting and fun. Worth!
