Marvel at the most spectacular sunset views in Gran Canaria on an e-bike tour, and enjoy an unforgettable outdoor adventure. First stop: Maspalomas Dunes. Admire the impressive dunes of this nature reserve and a variety of native plants. Then, try your hand at some birdwatching at the Maspalomas Oasis. Hear local history as you explore the Punta Mujeres Archaeological Site from your expert guide. Then, continue to the old Maspalomas Lighthouse, a national monument located at the southernmost point of the island. Next, turn onto the Meloneras Promenade and ride beside the sea before hopping off your bike for 20-minutes to relax. Step into a cool bar with ocean views and try some delicious tapas with a soft drink.
Take a guided tour of the volcanic isle departing from the Port of Las Palmas to experience the stunning nature, buildings, and panoramic views of the island. Visit three hot spots where you can feel the lively heart of the city. The beach is like a city park that is active the whole day with tens of thousands of locals enjoying a nice walk along the promenade.

Then, you’ll visit the harbor where many people prepare to follow the route of Columbus. There will be a long stop in the Old Town where your guide will lead you through the colorful streets visiting key places and introducing friendly locals who work in the area.

Manuel was an excellent guide for our first visit to Las Palmas. He showed us a great variety of interesting aspects of the city and answered all our questions. Using taxis and walking was a perfect combination to see the city. Thoroughly recommended.

Off-road jeep safari", it sounds fun, right? It's what we thought too when we booked this excursion and it's why we ended up on Señor José's ( a true gentleman by the way) authentic Landrover Defender's back seats. Although you stay in the southern part of the island, the route up the main crater is just amazing. Eating dust (yes, better not dress too fancy) while enjoying the views on some Gran Canarian canyon. It's very nice. At the end there's the possibility to do a short camel ride but we decided to pass on this one (we're not huge fans of using animals for commercial purposes... a personal opinion though). Overall, a very enjoyable and relaxing excursion.
Great organization, the transfer went very well with Nicole. Then I was changed from 4x4 to put me in a Franco-Spanish group with José the guide. Very professional and knowledgeable who gave us advice throughout the day. Many stops during the Safari to take photos and have explanations. Stop for lunch in a restaurant (personally I did not find it exceptional; chicken thigh, 3 pdt and salads). I highly recommend this visit :) The views are to die for!
Thanks to God for some reason decided to take this tour instead of driving ourselves, with small engined car not sure if it wouldn’t be possible to get to the places we got with the jeep and absolutely no hassle as you don’t have to drive those narrow roads, our guide Jose was brilliant, plenty of stops for pictures and all. Day spent better then expected! By the way, Jose photography skills on top, should work for Vogue
Great trip into the mountains with Land Rover Safari vehicles. Dirt track roads, hairpin bends with abyssal drops over the edge all add to make this a worthwhile trip. Go for the included lunch to get genuine Gran Canarian food. Highly recommended!
Very nice adventure I recommend ... ideal for discovering the hidden parts of the island .. very good meal.
