  • Puerto de Mogán and Market with Optional Boat Ride

    1. Puerto de Mogán and Market with Optional Boat Ride

    Discover one of the most attractive destinations in Gran Canaria with a visit to the pretty fishing village of Puerto de Mogán at the mouth of a steep-sided valley on the south-west coast of the island.  Marvel at the multicolored bougainvillea plants and colonial-style architecture as you explore the streets and canals. Stroll around the modern sports marina and pop into the typical shops and cafés. On Fridays, take advantage of the market selling fresh produce and all kinds of useful items as it stretches along the harbor wall and through the town center! Stop to take souvenir photos and stretch your legs with a stroll in the popular resort town of Puerto Rico before the return trip to your pick-up point.

  • From Gran Canaria: Day Trip to Tenerife

    2. From Gran Canaria: Day Trip to Tenerife

    Take advantage of this magnificent chance to visit Tenerife at an exceptional price during your stay on Gran Canaria. Benefit from hotel pick-up, and then board the 1-hour boat crossing in Agaete. Upon arrival in Santa Cruz, avail of world-class shopping or go for a walk along the beaches. Marvel at Santiago Calatrava's futuristic Auditorio de Tenerife or relax in the renovated Parque García Sanabria. Hop on the tram to La Laguna if you prefer to explore a city designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site as a unique example of a colonial city built without a surrounding wall.

    If you are staying in Gran Canaria and wish to visit some of the other Canary Islands on a day trip, this is probably the easiest way. Each island has its own climate, vegetation and landforms (and the major islands have multiple climate zones as well), so you need to travel around to get a feel for the Canary Island, rather than just stay in one place. Roads in the interior of the islands can be challenging for a foreign driver, so excursions by bus or van are a better choice. There are two options for the time spent in Porto de la Cruz on this trip: either a visit to Loro Park (a large zoo and marine park), or a walk on your own through Puerto de la Cruz. The first option is probably better for families with children. We took the second option because we visited many other marine parks before, and we do not feel comfortable watching orcas and dolphins in captivity. Our guide, Tom, was very knowledgeable and helpful. Thanks also to the driver, Paco, for safe driving under the day.

  • Gran Canaria: 6-Hour Teror and San Mateo Markets Tour

    3. Gran Canaria: 6-Hour Teror and San Mateo Markets Tour

Admire its narrow streets and wooden houses with typical Canarian balconies. Visit the church dedicated to the Lady of the Pine. Around the church and the town square is one of the most popular markets in the Canary Islands.

Very good day trip

Very good guide, as well as very careful and safe driver. This excursion concentrates on visits to two local markets, as well as moderately long walks (optional) in both Teror and San Mateo. A good, unhurried introduction to life in mountain villages of Gran Canaria.
