Exploring Gran Canaria

Exploring Gran Canaria

The best option to explore Gran Canaria is a a tour by car. We rented a Fiat Panda in Maspalomas. Small car on Grand Canaria is a very good idea. There is so narrowly on many mountain roads, the two cars will not fit on the road.

Roads in Gran Canaria

There are all kinds of roads on Gran Canaria: multi-lane highway with long tunnels, good quality local roads and side roads - often winding and narrow for one car, in many places on the shelves of rock and without any barriers ... 30 km you drive an hour or longer...

Scenic route

Scenic route

Gran Canaria impresses landscapes and nature - high mountains, uplifted rocks, steep slopes, deep gorges and valleys. Every turn shows another beautiful view. When you drive a car through the mountains you have to stop every few kilometers to enjoy another beautiful view.

Roads in mountains

Roads in mountains

Discovering Gran Canaria by car I recommend to choose the side roads. The roads are very winding and extremely steep uphill. In many places you need to go in first gear with the hope that nothing appears from the opposite direction. But you have to to see them - the landscapes are magnificent.

Huge mountains, rocks and valleys ... and cottages on the slopes ... strange that someone built a house so high and live there. There you can see beautifully situated village of Carrizal de Tejeda right on the mountainside. The two sacred rocks Roque Bentayga and Roque Nublo are at the top of the photo.

In January, the evening was cool here - about 9° C and a fairly strong wind. The temperature at the top is about 10 degrees lower than on the beach in Maspalomas. The trail from the parking lot is not long but it is worth to wear pants, fleece and even a jacket.

Viewpoint Mirador del Balcón

Viewpoint Mirador del Balcón

A viewpoint is located on the western extreme point of the island of Gran Canaria at a closed road (GC-200). The point is the balcony suspended over a vertical cliff falling into the Atlantic, and the rocks look like the tail of a dragon. A viewpoint is the end of the road - barrier across the road makes it impossible to continue the trip.
