Don't say that you have been in Gran Canaria if you haven't been at Roque Nublo. It's a most picturesque trip I ever had. Try Picco de las Nieves too.

Amazing trip. It took us 1.5hours to get there from maspalomas, every minute of our trip was spectacular, along the way we were stopping every 15 min to walk around, enjoy the view.

Half an hour of walk to get to the top from the parking lot. I suggest to go there to watch the sunset, it is the greatest thing ever. Many times, if it is cloudy, you could stand over the clouds giving a little bit of magic to that moment.

As we liked to see more of the island than Playa del Ingles only, we rented a car and drove all the way upon the mountainroad to Roque Nublo. It took us about an hour and a half to reach the parking lot underneath it. From here it takes 20 minutes to reach Roque Nublo and its splendid sights by... More

A good trail of 1.1k leads from the parking lot to this spectacular landscape feature. Nublo is a volcanic plug @ 80 meters high that originally lay @800-1k meters beneath the summit prior to the eruption. The walk is attractive with scenic views down the valley and vistas of other geological formations. Once the summit is attained your reward is... More

We visited Roque Nublo on a Thompson excursion into the mountains whilst on holiday in June and have to say the trip was fantastic. When we reached Nublo we were astounded how green and lush the area was with beautiful pine trees and scenery well worth the visit. Gran canaria is a gem well worth exploring. Highly recommend a visit... More

Roque Nublo - is the highest peak on the island (or one of the highest) that looks like the American advertisement for Marlboro. Views are sensational, logorovališta and camps on either side of the road and the smells of barbecue. Canary Islands is normally derived from the ancient supervolcano before about 60 million years ago. Undiscovered until the late Middle... More

We hired our own car and toured around the island. The drive here is fine - you get used to the roads and hairpin bends. Huge car park and from here it is a medium hike for about and hour. Make sure you have your water in this arid terrain. The views are truly stunning. This location was used for... More

The Roque Nublo area is a really amazing place (for who loves nature and views). Remember to take the tour of 1-2 hours from the top of the road.

Our mountain island tour took us through the mountains to one of Gran Canaria's most famous landmarks. Though we did not have time to walk up to it, we did enjoy seeing a couple of eagles's soaring ind the skies above plus the obligatory photoshot or 3. Breathtaking view up at 2000 metres plus.
