In ancient times, Roque Nublo was considered a sacred rock by the first inhabitants of the island. Discover why on this full-day tour to the summits of Gran Canaria.
The tour begins heading to the north of the island, to see the striking Cathedral of Arucas. Although this spectacular neogothic temple is referred to as a cathedral, it is officially the Church of San Juan Bautista. Aruca is also famous for its banana plantations and rum. On this tour you will visit a distillery to sample its “honey rum”, a product typical of this area of the island.
Hit the road until you get to the picturesque village of Teror. As you visit its historic center, you’ll marvel at its multicolored balconies, typical of the Canary Islands. The bright colors contrast sharply with the lush vegetation of the mountains that surround the village. On the guided tour, you will also visit the Nuestra Señora del Pino Basilica, home to a magnificent sculpture of the Patron Saint of Gran Canaria.
After having lunch at your own leisure in the area, you will set off to the center of the island to climb to the summits of Gran Canaria. You will reach one of the most sacred places for the natives the isle: the natural rock formations of Roque Nublo, Rana, Fraile and Roque de San José. Marvel at the contrast of these baren landscapes with the lavish valleys of the south.
We'll head back down through San Bartolomé de Tirajana and the Valley of the Thousand Palms in Fataga. This last stop takes place in an aloe vera plantation, where we'll discover the various medicinal and beautifying properties of the plant.
