Gran Canaria: Excursions

The impressive landscape around Tejeda was called "the petrified storm" by Spanish writer Unamuno. You find here green valleys with cultures of almonds at the foot of the mighty mountain peaks Roque Nubo and Bentayga.

Teror Photo The village which "seems to be floating in the air", is located at a tableland 575 meters above sea level. It is surrounded by breath-taking mountain ranges. It is also a well-known place of pilgrimship and has several very nice houses in colonial style, as the Casa de Doña Teresa de Bolivar Photo.

Arucas: This well cared-for old town with nice parks is located at an impressive high coast with picturesque small bays, and some of the island's most important banana-plantations. Very close to here there is the volcano Montaña de Arucas

Santa María de Guia is located in the island's north. Here you may visit the Cenobio de Valerón, a group of caves enclosed by petrified lava.

At Agaete, located at the seaside, you can see an impressive canyon with plantations of papayas, avocados, coffee and bananas, and the Balneario de los Berrazales with its thermal springs.

In the south we find the most beautiful landscapes at Arinaga, which is a romantic fishing-village offering a great panorama, and Mogán, a beautiful valley with cultures of tropical fruits.
