Full description
You'll depart from the Las Palmas city center from where you will head to the center of the island towards San Mateo. There you will be able to enjoy a short break of 30 minutes, with the chance to visit the farm market which stocks plenty of local products (only open on Saturday). From there you'll continue driving to reach the summit of Gran Canaria, which sits at 1,959 meters and is referred to as “Pico de las Nieves”. From this viewpoint you will enjoy stunning views of the high peaks, and if the weather is clear you will be able to see Tenerife. After that you will move down to "The Roque Nublo”, a huge basalt monolith rock more than 65 meters high which arose as a result of volcanic activity and erosion. This unique volcanic formation is protected as a natural monument. rom there you will stop at the Cross of Tejeda and its Parador National, where you can taste plenty of local Canarian products such as cheese, honey, and fruit. The tour will later finish in Teror, where you can enjoy a walk through the charming village and visit the Basilica of the Lady of the Pine.

Highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for a hassle-free day out in the mountains. It’s one of the best day tours I’ve ever been on, stunning views, very small group, friendly driver, comfortable and modern coach and very knowledgable and cheerful guide. Whenever I come back to Canaria, I will, for sure do this tour again. We have been given plenty of opportunities to take pictures and enjoy the scenery as well as explore Teror and San Mateo towns.
