Jeep Safari Gran Canaria - Places of interest on the island
A jeep safari in Gran Canaria makes it easy for you, but is definitely the right thing if you want to see a little more of the island and have an adventure: whether in the Valley of 1000 Palms, the Fataga Nature Park, on the mountain roads or on downhill trips.
The guided jeep safari tours are accompanied by professional guides who will show you some of the most beautiful places on the island and tell you a lot about nature and landscape, about history and people.
Since some of the routes lead through desert-like terrain or over somewhat rougher mountain roads, it can get dusty in between. Just the safari feeling.
Gran Canaria has many exciting routes to offer that not everybody knows and that offer something worth seeing. The landscape of the island changes its appearance with every climate zone. An amazing spectacle that you can follow from the jeep and let it affect you. The tours are arranged in such a way that there are stops at the most beautiful viewpoints and some of them include excursions into the surrounding area.
In addition, you can book a leisure package in which the jeep safari in Gran Canaria is combined with another highlight - for example a buggy tour. More action is not possible!
Jeep Safari Gran Canaria - Can I drive myself?
No matter if you drive yourself or let yourself drive, a Jeep Safari on Gran Canaria is pure driving pleasure. With an off-road vehicle you can explore unique routes on the island, which would hardly be manageable with a normal car or bus.
If you are 18 years old and have a Class B driving licence, you can also drive a jeep yourself. Before departure, there will be a professional briefing and information about the route that awaits you. In the mountains, the roads are usually narrow and winding, so anticipatory and concentrated driving is recommended.
In any case, we recommend joining one of the guided jeep safaris. The guides know the right routes and know how to drive on them.
Jeep Safari Gran Canaria - What else do I need to know?
Some tours start at agreed meeting points, others offer a transfer from and back to the hotel. For the excursions lasting several hours it is advisable to be prepared with water and sun cream and, due to the dust development in the terrain, also to pack a cloth.
For the guided tours, a guide drives in front and the participants of the excursion drive behind. Self-drivers must wear sturdy shoes and of course have their driving licence with them. Children from 7 years of age can take part, a minimum height of 135 centimetres is required by some organisers.
