While the countryside on the drive up is quite scenic, you should be aware that the drive is quite long and winding, along roads which have precipitous drops. The road surface is relatively good quality but can be quite narrow in places. Pack a jacket as the summit can be very cold and windy!

All the way up pointed out all the points of interest by name, telling us the actual highest peak was where the Spanish Military base... More

Roque Nublo is just part of wide variety of amazing scenery in the centre of Gran Canaria. We were in Gran Canaria for 4 days in December staying near Teror in the mountains before moving on to Fuerteventura. The interior of Gran Canaria is incredible with such marvellous views. It is so green - everything seems to grow in the... More

About 25 min up and 20 down (45-50 min total + photo time). Pretty easy walk, parking can be a little tight but we did manage. Nice views. Would recommend.

We started our climb directly from the main route from San Bartholome to Tejeda. First walking through the vulcanic area and later through the pine tree woods up to the top was a great expierence. The view from the summit was exceptional.

If you visit Gran Canaria , you have to go here to look at the sights here, the view in general you can look all the way over to Teide , the mountain on Tenerife from here clearly.

A very beautiful walk to Roque Nublo together with the small company Rocky Adventure! Wellorganized and with a lot of interesting information about culture, flowers and animals during the tour.

Even though we visited Roque Nublo in foggy weather, it was such a great walk! It's maybe 30 mins of a walk into the forests, then you land upon an almost lunar landscape - wow! Awesome view from the top and great place for photos. If raining, consider having good hiking shoes since the path may get slippery at times.... More
