We went into the mountains on GC65 and the views were absolutely spectacular. We stopped at Santa Lucia for coffe which appears to be the "real" gran canaria and spent the day in the mountains. Roque Nublo is as reported and well worth a visit, a KM walk or so from the car park. We were lucky to be there... More

We visited roque nublo whilst holidaying in Puerto Rico last year and it was definitely worth the visit. It took us about an hour to drive there from our resort and I was terrified going round some on the narrow roads up and round the mountains! However, it was worth it for the views. When you arrive at the bottom... More

The drive to Roque Nublo was in itself enjoyable - the views on the way there from Maspalomas were stunning. The walk up to the Roque is a little difficult in places but a rest once in a while to take in the views does help. Follwoing advice of previous reviewers; taking som water with you is well worth while.... More

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.

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
