Fantastic experience. I only went three quarters of the way up. Though my husband made it all the way. The day we went it was not cloudy and the views were spectacular. However the wind was very very strong and it was very chilly up there. I recommend you take extra layers AND GOOD STOUGHT SHOES WITH YOU.

Roque Nublo ( " cloudy rock " ) seems to score in the top ten attractions in Gran Canaria whichever guide you read , so what new to say ? - it is a longish drive , one hour + from the coast road , with well maintained roads and the main danger being Lycra clad cyclists hurtling down blind... More

Excellent view from the centre of the island. All around you can see the various towns and villages. At the peak there is a unique rock formation that makes for very nice pictures. This is easily the nicest view of the Canary Islands.

Well worth the drive, and a far cry from the touristic south of the island. The scenery is stunning and on the day we went there was a lovely clear sky.

This is a very simple hiking that can give you an amazing view of Gran Canaria. Make sure you have good shoes and water: even if the trek is short, it will be on sharp rocks and under an implacable sun: even in April you could feel its bite. The hike is a great relief after the hundreds of curves... More

Roque Nublo is beautiful, stunning views from the top, including Mount Tiede on Tenerife, well worth the 45 minute hike from the car park. Beautiful trees and plant life, totally unspoiled. Take plenty of water and sun protection and proper walking shoes as the terrain is rocky in parts and it did become very hot even though it was April.... More

Just go there with 300 curves on the road. It is a must on the GC. Green mountains and crystal clear sky. Feels like nothing other.

Probably I didn't like it because it is a short hike, it was in the summer and there was no fog, so it was pretty much walking to a rock in the middle of an island. I heard that is beautiful to go there when it is not that hot and there are chances to be foggy. We went by... More
