El Roque is one of GC's most distinctive landmarks, and is well worth the visit. I'm going to make this review comprehensive, to give my view on a number of issues that I struggled to find clear guidance about before we set off. First, the location of the car park is on the GC600, a couple of miles north-east of... More

This was worth a visit, but be prepared for a long ride up a very narrow and curvy road. It is hard to believe that the roads are two-way! There were times you would turn and you had to hope that there was not a car coming when you made the blind turn. Once you arrive, be prepared to take... More

Go at sunset time, you will be above the clouds. Stunning views when you get to the summit. We saw everything in one hour and half. I loved it. I would like to come back.

We walked up to Roque Nublo summit on our last day on Gran Canaria and it was one of our holiday's highlights. A medium-difficult hike leads you from the car park up to the summit in approximately 30 min. For that you get rewarded with breath-taking views over the whole island, divine silence with only few sounds reaching from villages... More

I've walked in the Alps, Dolomites, Pyrenees, Snowdonia etc, but this must be the easiest walk to give stunning views and a real sense of being remote from the holiday circuit. One word of caution, despite being simple and quite short, 1.5 hours return, it is high, almost 2000m, so do wear sensible footgear, carry water and sun cream and... More

If you can bear the twisty roads with great big drops either side...then make sure you head to the top of the island for stunning views!! If like me you get up there wearing a blindfold...it is still worth it!!

Gran Canaria is much more than many people think. If you like hiking, it's one of the best places You can find. Visit to Roque Nublo is a perfect way to start. It's quite easy to find, and the road is not too tricky. Car park is close and the trail to the rock is not too difficult or too... More
