Detailed description

Circular hike at Roque Nublo on Gran Canaria

Approach the landmark of Gran Canaria on an easy, 2-hour hiking tour and marvel at an important natural wonder at the foot of the rock. The Roque Nublo is an impressive, sublime mountain in the middle of the volcanic island. One can completely circle this unique place on Gran Canaria once and immerse oneself on the way into the unique natural landscape around the cloud rock. A large part of the circular hike at Roque Nublo leads through Canarian pine forest and is accompanied by the aromas of lavender, rosemary or white eucalyptus. And again and again from vantage points, which carry your view into the multifaceted landscape of this island.

The Roque Nublo is a majestic phenomenon. From all points of the compass, it stands out, even if the rock is not the highest in Gran Canaria, but a very important one. For the natives, the mountain in the middle of the island is a sacred place. And also visitors have to respect this impressive mountain and knock on the bizarre volcanic rock. And from the plateau of Roque Nublo you can enjoy the view of the island, the coast, the sea and the municipality of Tejeda at the foot of the Nublo. This is true at least on days when the rock is not covered in clouds. The hiking trail around Roque Nublo is well prepared and offers a good orientation.

A local guide will take you to the mountain and back. On the way you will learn more about the flora and fauna of this part of the island and about the history of Roque Nublo. Except for the occasional climbs, which make the hike a bit more sporty, the trail is easy to walk on and suitable for all fitness levels. Even families with children can master this circuit together and gather many impressions of Gran Canaria. The many geological forms that the volcanic activity has produced here alone are impressive. The Roque Nublo hike is a classic among the many hiking routes on Gran Canaria. It is possible all year round and leads on the circular route away from the tourist streams. On the forest paths you can take a deep breath and let the abundance of the Canarian nature work its magic on you.

Was completely ok

For me and my partner completely sufficient. For the length a bit expensive, there are also cheaper variants, but the guide was great.
