Walking in Gran Canaria is a real treat for avid walkers. This ‘miniature continent’ with its micro-climates, valley’s, mountains and coastline packs a big punch into a small space.

To really experience the most this island has to offer we have walking in Gran Canaria Guided Trips. These trips allow you to fully explore the island by foot while accompanied by a knowledgeable guide. The guide will not only inform you about the nature and history of the island but share with you local tips on the best places to eat and visit when you have a free day.

We organise your accommodation in 3 different locations on Gran Canaria during your trip. The first two nights are in Aguimes and then three nights in Tejeda.
