Visit Gran Canaria Highlights in airconditioned Lxury Coach
High Quality Tours
We're professionals, whose only goal is to: "Offer you the best excursions in Gran Canaria"
OK, you may have heard this before, but we not only mean it, we have the qualifications and experience to prove it. Don't take our word for it - come on any of our carefully planned excursions - planned to show you the REAL Gran Canaria, not to mention all the Canary Islands - and make your holiday really memorable, we give you top value for your euro!
Aboard luxury, airconditionated coach, together we´ll explore the most beautiful valleys of Gran Canaria, travelling via Telde, the ancient aboriginal capital of the island, to Arucas, where we visit the unique “modern gothic” church, and the rum distillery with the biggest vaultsin Europe (tasting is of course included!).
Climbing up through the centre of the island, we have magnificent views of northern Gran Canaria and the city of Las ;
In Teror, the pilgrimage site, we find the typical architecture of the island: balconies and basilica. Hidden away, we find the green core of the island. You'll discover deep valleys and stunning mountain views, described by the famous Spanish poet Unamuno as a “frozen tempest”, and naturally including the Roque Nublo and “El Teide”. Once over the peak, we carry on past the almond trees of Ayacata,San Bartolome and the village of “Fataga”, known as the “Valley of the Thousand Palms”. Return to the south of the island.
This excursion begins when we leave las Palmas Harbour and we head East-North towards Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (capital of the province which bears the same name: "Las Palmas"). We'll see something of the city and on leaving it behind, we'll enjoy magnificent views of the Alfredo Kraus Auditorium and a panoramic view of the city.
Visit Arehucas Distillery with the biggest rum cellars in Europe
We continue on to the town of Arucas, home to Gran Canarian Rum and the banana capital of Gran Canaria. After we arrive in Arucas, we visit two of its most important attractions: the astounding neogothic church of San Juan Bautista, which although a 20th century monument reminds one of a medieval church; and the Arehucas rum factory which dates from 1884, with the biggest rum cellars of all Europe.
Rum was a Canarian invention which the Conquistadors exported to the Americas. In the distillery, we'll not only see the thousands of American oak barrels where the Rum matures over time,but see the steps it goes through before finally arriving into the bottles dearly loved by the locals.
The Rum production in the Canaries is absolutely traditional.
Visit in Teror village
Our route continues towards Teror, the religious capital and destination of the pilgrimages of the island. On arrival, you can see the Basilisk of La Virgen del Pino (Virgin of Pino) and discover its squares and historic corners, as well as stroll through its romantic streets with their post-colonial architecture and look at its beautiful balconies carved from Canarian pine. To sum up, a village which allows us to enjoy a moment of peace and tranquility.
During the route, we break to have lunch. Although lunch is not included in the price, you can choose to supply your own, or take advantage of a varied and typical table d'hote menu which includes drinks (water and wine or soft drinks) for around 10 euros. We continue our ascent and the center of the island offers us contrasting landscapes: deep ravines, many of which are populated by locals who live inside these mountains, in cave-houses either drilled out of these rocks or to this day in natural caves.
As we climb, you'll notice that island becomes greener, which surprises the visitor who doesn't expect such an extraordinary diversity of landscapes. The peak envelops us with its pine and chestnut woods by the roadside. You'll begin to understand why this island is known as the "Continent in Miniature". Not just the scenery but also the climate may surprise you, as the north is much cooler and damp than the south where you are staying.
Return across the southern part of the island
The heart of the island surprises us with its impressive landscapes; we leave the "Parador" of the Cruz de Tejeda behind us at no less than meters high, to continue on our way to stop at the viewpoint of Becerra ( meters high) from wherewe can view the "Roque Nublo", the natural monument which is emblematic of Gran Canaria, together with two other magnificent natural monoliths (pillars) "the Rock of Bentayga " and the "Monje". Don't forget your camera; if the weatheris kind you can see Tenerife clearly and with it Spain's highest peak, Teide, at meters.
After we hit the peak, we begin to descend via the center of Gran Canaria towards the south, through forests of canarian pine and dams which store the water which is partially brought on the trade winds. In the village of Ayacata you can see the almond trees (in flower in winter) and nature offers us rocks of a thousand forms, which our guides will help you discover. We continue descending and the landscape becomes drier but nonetheless impressive; that's why Unamuno described it as a "petrified tempest".
In the village of "Tunte" in San Bartolome we enter a large crater of around 10 km in diameter and we stop to take photos and have a coffee. Suddenly you realize you're in an enormous hole and you feel really tiny against theImpressive mountains which surround you. A camera is obligatory, for the wonderful views over the villages of Temisas and Santa Lucia.
The vegetation has been changing and suddenly you could be in a faraway corner of Arizona or Nevada; the plants are different and the vegetation belongs to the succulent family (cactus, aloes, agaves and many more) which is greatly admiredby our visitors. It's a flora which is perfectly adapted to the scarce rainfall of the region.
Fataga, the valley of the thousand palms, refuge of artists and bohemians, welcomes us: a beautiful valley filled with palms at the bottom of a pretty and fertile valley.
