Had one of the most amazing days in Agaete, full of sunshine and adrenaline! It’s also very exciting as you ‘re gonna abseil from a cliff, climb a via ferrata and end with a jump in the ocean and some snorkeling. I couldn’t recommend it enough, one on the best adventures I’ve been on so far!

An awesome and adventurous trip around the island! Our group had so much fun hiking/swimming in the rainforest and visiting the coffee plantation especially. Our guide was also very knowledgeable and taught us a lot about the local flora/fauna and history of the islands. 10/10 recommend!

This was definitely the highlight of our stay at Gran Canaria. Pablo is very professional but also very cheerful and nice person. We had tons of fun, amazing photos in the end and also learned a lot. Definitely recommend to everyone!

A nice experience despite the somewhat cold weather. Everything is well organized, great to spend the day differently and also to experience the green side of Gran Canaria. Gladly again.

Short hike. You can jump into a small natural pond. Lovely nature. Small groupe. Coffeetasting and info tour.
