Discover Gran Canaria
The miniature continent
Gran Canaria offers a vast amount of diverse landscapes, which only wait to be explored. Especially the north of the islands surprises with scenic views, jungle-like canyons and spectacular ravines. The central highlands are dominated by conifers, above all the well known canary pine, which has adapted itself perfectly to the volcano landscape. The special feature of Gran Canaria is, that all the different zones lie very close together. Therefore you usually pass several climatic zones on every trip, which shine with entirely distinct vegetation.
If you’ve got a rental car, you’ve got the possibility to visit the more isolated places, like the west coast with its natural reserve Tamadaba and the steep cliffs with its adventurous road winding along them all the way to La Aldea de San Nicolás. Further inland you’ll find idyllic towns every now and then, which invite for a break.
