Gran Canaria Cave, Oasis, Red-gorge Adventure & cosy Picnic

Since we will not be walking on solid pavement on this tour, we recommend wearing appropriate footwear. You don't have to be a professional hiker! At each location we will walk in nature for about 15-20 minutes. However, we do not recommend the tour for people with limited mobility. Before starting the tour, get picked up directly in front of your accommodation. Admire the spectacular tuff ravine. It is a beautiful natural element, and its origin makes us think about the changes in the world and the power of nature. A real authentic Canarian town, surrounded by olive trees. Don't look for stress and rush here. This is the peaceful lifestyle of Gran Canaria. Enjoy the silence and the beauty of the Canarian style. Can you imagine life on Gran Canaria around 1500 years ago? These impressive aboriginal caves help us to feel and understand the life of the native people. (On this section we will hike on rocky paths.) Before serving you our unique Canarian tapas picnic, we will take a short break where you can buy a coffee or delicious local products. We invite you to a cozy alfresco picnic in a wonderful location, where you can taste some of the products of Canarian gastronomy. Just like grandma used to make, with lots of love :) A truly adventurous path through a small oasis. Nature lovers cannot miss this experience. Here you will not only get your best vacation photos, but also information about agriculture and how important water is on the island. To conclude the tour, our last stop will be a photo stop with beautiful views of the southern mountains of Gran Canaria.

Our exclusive day trip van tour invites you to embark on a journey through the heart of this enchanting island, unveiling its hidden gems and ancient secrets. First stop is Vacas canyon, this peculiar gorge of volcanic ash is the result of the eruptive steps that gave rise to this island. It is magical in terms of shapes and colors. Without a doubt this will be your profile photo of your trip to Gran Canaria! Leaving this canyon behind, we set our sights on the next chapter of our journey: the ancient settlement of Cuatro Puertas. Nestled amidst the rolling hills of Gran Canaria's interior, this archaeological marvel offers a tantalizing glimpse into the island's pre-Hispanic past. Stepping out of the van, we are transported back in time, our senses awakened by the sights, sounds, and stories of centuries past. Led by our expert guides, we embark on a guided tour of the settlement, unraveling its mysteries one stone at a time. From the intricate carvings adorning ancient rock faces to the meticulously constructed dwellings hidden within the landscape, every corner of Cuatro Puertas tells a story of perseverance and innovation. As we explore the labyrinthine passages and sacred chambers of the settlement, we are struck by the profound reverence with which its inhabitants regarded the land. From ceremonial rituals to everyday life, every aspect of their existence was intertwined with the rhythms of nature, a testament to the enduring bond between humanity and the earth. As the day draws to a close, we bid farewell to Cuatro Puertas and set our sights on our final destination: the Poris of Tufia. Nestled along the island's rugged coastline, this tranquil fishing village offers a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of modern life. Arriving at the Poris of Tufia, we are greeted by the salty breeze and the gentle lapping of waves against weathered stone. Stepping out of the van, we are immediately struck by the village's timeless charm, its whitewashed houses and cobblestone streets steeped in history and tradition. Against the backdrop of crashing waves and rustling palms, we are reminded of the timeless beauty of Gran Canaria, a land where past and present converge in perfect harmony.

The tour with Estefania and Laszlo was great. It was my second tour with them and I am very happy to have gained this insight into Gran Canaria. The Discovery Adventure Tour includes a great mix of short hikes with great viewpoints and stops in beautiful places. You should definitely bring sturdy shoes and a desire to explore the beautiful nature of Gran Canaria. The tapas picnic is delicious and interesting because you get to know some indigenous and local foods and fruits. Although no other guests were booked for the tour, Laszlo informed me and still carried out the tour. I can highly recommend the tour and the two of them and would book again at any time. Thank you very much for this experience!

If you like nature and you want to do something different this is the tour for you. You don't need to be the best hiker but bringing decent shoes is a must. Laszlo does his best to give as much information as he can and he uses a tablet with pictures as assistance to paint a better picture. Estefania is a great driver and cook. The picnic was delicious and in a beautiful spot. The tour group is small and the spots you see aren't the typical touristic views where everyone crowds together. Don't hesitate and book this tour so you can see original sights and meet two tour guides who do their absolute best to give you a great experience.

Absolutely wonderful, interesting, and fun. I recommend only going if you're comfortable with hiking a little. If so, I recommend it without hesitation. It will help you appreciate Gran Canaria on a whole other level.
