Gran Canaria Walking Holidays

Gran Canaria is located off the northwestern coast of Africa and is one of Spain’s Canary Islands. Often referred to as a miniature continent, you’ll find a vast array of landscapes and climates at play here. With native plants and natural ecosystems, a third of the island is protected as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.

Wonderful Walking Holidays

The vast and varied landscape on offer makes the island a popular destination for travellers from all over the world. Stroll along clean and relaxing beaches or climb towering mountains; hiking in Gran Canaria is the ultimate way to get the most out of your time here. 

Accompanied by a friendly, English-speaking guide, you will traverse the boundless countryside, taking in the breathtaking vistas and sea views. Gran Canaria is an exciting experience, so embrace the fragrance of the pine forests, feel the hot sand between your toes and taste the sea salt on your lips. 

The capital city of Las Palmas is a major port for cruise ships, and, aside from its excellent beaches, it offers you the chance to indulge in some retail therapy and soak up some culture in the city’s various museums.

Why visit Gran Canaria?

What makes Gran Canaria walking holidays so unique is the island's varied terrain and the different options that are available to hikers.

Gran Canaria is also home to some special places like the Roque Nublo, which is considered one of the biggest natural crags in the world, and the viewpoints of  Pico de las Nieves and  Pinos de Galdar as they offer panoramic views of Gran Canaria.

The island is famed for its beaches, weather and cuisine, so there are plenty of activities that you can enjoy as part of a holiday here.
