From the car park that's situated about 20 mins away, it's a nice sweet walk up to this rock. It can get quite crowded. I advise to wear proper shoes, many people just went in their flip flops and that was just sad to watch. Upon arriving to the rock, the vista of the whole of the island is magnificent.... More

Stunning scenery on the drive to this iconic place. A half hour hike from one of the nearby parking places is rewarded with magnificent views and even a view of Mount Teide on Tenerife. Do have a fresh juice drink from the little van by the parking, they make it while you wait and also have lovely bocadillos from a... More

A fairly short hike (need to be quite mobile due to some clambering, although it is not far) with wonderful views of the island and Roque Nublo- leads you our to Roque Nublo. You can see this landmark from many spots in the centre of the island, but it is worth finding the Roque and making the hike out there... More

Central Gran Canaria offers great views from the car. But a hike is needed to really take in the scenery. The relatively short hike from La Goleta (at GC600) to Roque Nublo (approx. 1.5 km one way) is by no means difficult, and we easily completed the walk back and forth with a 4-year old within two hours. It is... More

After several cloudy days in Las Palmas, we went on an organised trip up to Roque Nublo with Walking Gran Canaria. It was great to drive up above the clouds and out into the blue sky, mountains and wind. We walked around La Cumbre and then up to Roque Nublo and the views were amazing, across to Tenerife and down... More

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!

We went on a Guided Tour in a mini bus just10 people which was very good. The guide was English and had an excellent knowledge of the island together with a good sense of humour. 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.
