Breathe deeply and let yourself be carried away by the sensations that this island gives you. Gran Canaria is changing its costume, as you travel from North to South. Diversity is its second name, because in a few hours it offers you thousands of moments, from crossing the bucolic laurel forests, walking through pine forests at 1,500 meters of altitude, leaving the clouds under your feet, to immersing yourself in the waters that caress a coastline of white dunes (you can walk through them on a camel) or black beaches inherited from its volcanic past. An oasis of palm trees and orange trees embedded between gorges draw a landscape similar to that of New Mexico or Arizona, and if you want to see a “sea of clouds”, go up to Roque Nublo or Bentayga, two basaltic monoliths at 1,813 meters of altitude, which Miguel de Unamuno described it as a "petrified storm". Do you want to continue exploring this infinite island?
The first Japanese restaurant in Spain was opened here. Christopher Columbus made a stopover before discovering the New World. Agatha Christie found inspiration. "Moby Dick" was filmed on Las Canteras beach. In Ingenio the purest vodka in the world is produced, it is called Blat and the method is secret.
Some authentic experiences that you can live in Gran Canaria
Have a 100% native coffee. Agaete can boast of being the only place in Europe where coffee is grown, a tradition from the 19th century, and one of the oldest beans in the world, Coffea arabica. This valley is famous for its coffee plantations and on the farms that grow it you can experience the whole coffee process: harvesting the beans, drying them, roasting them, mixing ... and, of course, tasting it at the exclusive Agaete Coffee Academy. And from this landscape, with the sunset, look for the dragon's tail that the cliffs draw in the ocean.
In the footsteps of the aborigines. The first settlers, Berbers or Amazighs from North Africa, arrived on the island with their culture based on cosmology, their beliefs, rituals and settlements, of which vestiges such as the sacred site of Caldera de Tejeda remain. You can visit sanctuaries, troglodyte habitats and artificial caves with astronomical markers. And at nightfall, official Project Starlight monitors will guide you on a journey through time, gazing at the stars and feeling that you almost touch them.
In search of the Flower Cheese. Who has taken my cheese? You will surely remember this best seller on the ability to adapt to change. In this fable you can be inspired to travel the six routes of the island's typical cheese (one of the few in the world that uses thistle flower rennet). Three can be done by car: 'In search of the last transhumants', 'In search of Flor cheese' and 'The flavors of Northern cheese'; two others are for hikers: 'Walking among thistles' and 'Walking with transhumants'; and one to do it by bicycle: 'Rolling towards the cheese'.
Who has not heard of the famous Gran Canaria Carnival, but have you ever lived it? With this Ineventing activity, you will feel it at any time of the year. Participants will enjoy a personalized carnival experience. For example, at the Leacock House, with its decorated terraces, lights and sound effects, plus a live show.
