What to expect?

A guided 7-hour tour designed to discover with us the central upland area in a pleasant way. A beautiful excursion through the protected natural areas of the Roque Nublo, Pico de las Nieves or Bandama and also visiting the town of San Mateo and the charming Village of Teror.

Our guides are specialized professionals trained specifically to interact with the clients and customize the development of the tour, making each outing a unique and different experience. That’s why the groups are for a maximum of 18 people.

The route starts with a visit to the Caldera de Bandama, the last active volcano in Gran Canaria, a spectacular crater of 1 km in diameter and fantastic views over the northeast of the island. Next, we cross the Santa Brigida wine area and within the so-called Middle Mountain Region, having a look at the agricultural wealth of its environment and a surprisingly green landscape that will captivate us. After, a stop in San Mateo, to discover the town and the way of life of its inhabitants, (on Saturdays only you will enjoy with a traditional market).

Continuing up to the Pico de las Nieves, the highest place on the island (1,949 meters), the Roque Bentayga, Cruz de Tejeda and the Roque Nublo, an impressive monolith 80 meters high, a natural monument considered sacred by the ancient pre-Hispanic aboriginal inhabitants, whose symbolism has become to the actual icon of Gran Canaria

You will learn about the whole area through spectacular lookout points with exceptional views over valleys and ravines. Together with us, you will know the history, anecdotes, and peculiarities of this fascinating upland protected area, its unaltered landscapes, forests, and secondary roads.

Finally, a stop at the charming Villa de Teror to visit the Church of the Virgin of El Pino, patron saint of the island, and enjoy with free time enough to have lunch, (not included in the price), or to take a walk through its old town

A different and enjoyable tour to discover in a personalized way, the peaks and the Middle Mountain Region of Gran Canaria

Had a great excursion with Fran the tour guide and Salva the driver. They are both great and Fran is such a nice person and presence. He was born in one of the towns you visit so you get the best local you can get :). We had also nice surprises along the trip which was a great bonus.
I can for sure highly recommend the trip, I will actually take another trip with them in the south of the island given the great first experience 🙂

This was a really wonderful trip. Super well organised. Spectacular views, comfortable ride, nice stops, and excellent, knowledgeable, and entertaining commentary from our guide Frank. It’s a brilliant way to see parts of the Island it would be hard to get to yourself at a very good price – hugely cheaper than getting taxis to places yourself (We know – we tried!) and better than buses when you don’t know where you’re going (We also tried!) We really wished we could have done another trip afterwards but we’ve got to go home 🙁

‘ve been on the tour “Bandama, High Peaks of Gran Canaria & Roque Nublo” with Bruno! It was supposed to be a group tour, but in the end I was alone and Bruno was so kind to give me a great offer! The tour is fantastic, you both discover nature and taste of the island! Wonderful landscapes! You can feel completely safe since Bruno always respect all the distancing rules (and there aren’t many tourists, so you can thoroughly enjoy the visit without worries!).
