A Gran Canaria hiking holiday is the best way to explore the second most populated island in the Canaries.
Las Palmas in Gran Canaria is the capital of the archipelago, a title shared with Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
Gran Canaria is considered one of the places with the greatest biodiversity on Earth. Its volcanic origins with mountains and valleys turn it into a home for misty laurel forests, full of indigenous species of flora and fauna that can only be found here.
For all of this natural beauty, UNESCO has recognized the island as a Biosphere Reserve.
The island provides rewarding hikes through fishing villages, high plateaus, volcano craters, ridges, green hills, the deep forest of Tamadaba Park, the iconic Roque Nublo and much more.
There are plenty of viewpoints to enjoy the uniqueness of these incredible landscapes. On top of this, there is a vibrant nightlife in Las Palmas, contrasted with the quietness of small villages deep in the valleys or high in the hills where time seems to have stopped.
What makes Gran Canaria hiking holidays special, is the temperate climate, the spectacular scenery and the variety of trails to choose from. The high quality of the accommodation, food and the friendliness of the locals also contribute to making this a hiking holiday to recommend to friends.
