Full description
After meeting your expert guide in Maspalomas, hop on your electric-powered e-bike or mountain bike for a 4-hour tour of the city’s stunning environs. Bound for Ayagaures, a small village nestled in the hills, cross a lush valley adorned with palm trees, cacti, wildflowers, and other native Canarian flora. Stop by a wild goat farm on the way, learning about how the animal has become an icon for Gran Canaria.

As you head toward the top of Ayagaures, explore the Maspalomas, Gran Canaria's immense golden sand dunes situated directly against the brilliant blue sea. Then, head to the Maspalomas Botanical Garden for a walking tour, where you'll learn to identify the main species of tropical plants that call the island home.

Once you reach the top of Ayagaures mountain, stop for a half-hour break, during which you’ll sample traditional Canarian tapas in a bar built inside an ancient aboriginal cave. Recharged and sated, continue to the vast Ayagaures Dam, where you’ll stop at a picturesque bridge for the perfect view of the massive reservoir. 

The return trip is all downhill, so get ready for a little bit of adventure. As you zip down the hill, you’ll pause at a camel farm to meet a few of the curious beasts, and learn of their significance in the culture of the Canary Islands and beyond. Afterwards, you’ll return to the meeting point, having seen some of the most beautiful natural sights that Maspalomas has to offer.

The e-bike tour was great fun!

There were only two of us and we actually had a private tour. The tour guide reported a lot of interesting things about the country and its people. The tapas we were allowed to try were delicious and plentiful. I can recommend the tour to everyone. Unfortunately my husband's bike was not quite in order. The bottom bracket was broken and that bothered him when pedaling.
