Climbing the slopes of Roque Nublo
Do you like sports vacations? Gran Canaria is an open-air playground! Between a dive in the sea and a kitesurfing session, head for the mythical Roque Nublo. Then head to the lesser-known, but equally sumptuous, El Montañon, for a 360° view of the archipelago.
Offer yourself an astonishing crossing of the desert
Gran Canaria has not stolen its nickname of miniature continent. The landscape of the third island of the Spanish archipelago, which alternates beaches and mountains, even conceals... a desert! This is the Maspalomas dunes, one of the great natural curiosities of the island, not far from the pubs and discotheques of Playa del Inglés.
Take a relaxing break
It is said that Gran Canaria holds "the formula for great rest". Visited since the 19th century by Europeans in search of a favorable climate to recharge their batteries, the island is teeming with relaxation and wellness areas, spas and other thalassotherapy centers. The hunt for stress is on!
Discover the animals of the tropics
Excellent alternative to the beach, especially when the sun is at its zenith, the excursion to the Palmitos Park zoo is one of the favorite attractions for families. Coatis, marabouts, Komodo dragons, wallabies, caimans... An exotic fauna to discover in the middle of a luxuriant and colorful vegetation.
Follow the traces of the first inhabitants of the island
Inhabited since the dawn of time, Gran Canaria preserves many memories of its first occupants. The most remarkable are located in the north of the island, like the amazing set of caves of Cenobio de Valerón, or the painted cave of Gáldar, jewel of the archaeological park of the Cueva Pintada.
