Half a day excursion that gives you a different view of and on the island! Take some 2 hours to walk from the (free) parking tot the rock and make sure you have some good shoes. Bring some water along.

If you are able to hire a car, and you are confident driving on bendy, steep roads then this hike from the small roadside car park up to the summit of the second highest mountain in Gran Canaria is a must and well worth the effort. You'll need at least half a day or a whole day if you don't... More

Travelled by car for about 1 hour to get there but what the travel guides don't tell you is the long trek up to it,it's a very rocky pathway and obviously up the mountain I only managed to get half way as I didn't feel safe being on my own, so I had to make do with photos from the... More

Instead of endless beaches head for here for a change. Excellent view and you can take sun even here :)

Once you've been able to find somewhere to park, due to the popularity. You can then start the hike up the mountainside, which including the twists and turns its probably 2km. Nice views of the surrounding area, and volcanic rock formations. Once at the top its a stunning view from what is almost a plateau. It seems you can go... More

I would encourage anybody with slightest interest in walking or great scenery to visit the Roque Nublo. It is an interesting drive through the mountain villages to the starting point, but this is just a prelude to what is to come. The short walk to the Roque must rank as one of the best effort - reward walks anywhere and... More

Last time we were in gran canaria we saw roque nuble from a distance on a bus tour, which really was not what we had in mind! So this time hired a car and navigated up through the mountains to the pedestrian access point where we parked the car, it was a Sunday was very busy, so parking was a... More

We climbed the classic grade 5+ on the SE face of Roque Nuble - Alemana. It had loads of fixed gear and abseiling down with a 60m rope was no problem. The view at the top was fab.

The drive to get there is part of the fun, with stunning views and scenery all around. The 2 hour walk there and back was straight forward and we were in no hurry. The top affords 360 degree views to Mt Teide on Tenerife and the whole of Gran Canaria. Can get windy and not fun if raining but definitely... More
