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

A relatively short walk along a beautiful path takes you up to a small plateau that contains the rock itself. The 360 degree view (all the way to volcanic Mount Teide on Tenerife, if the weather allows) from the plateau is absolutely stunning and the rock itself is fascinating. Standing at its base, it's very easy to understand why this... More

A big parking lot close to the top takes away a bit of the joy of the fantastic view. If you want more fantastic views and avoid the large crowd on the top, I can recommend this hike (18km + 800m climbing): - Start in Tejeda, follow marked path to Roque Nublo (climbing all the way) - At the parking...

This is a must see at Gran Canaria. You have to rent a car to go there but defenetly worth it. Nice walk around 1 hour. Very nice panoramic views.

About 75 minutes drive from the beaches in the south. Try to go there early or at the end of the day ( if you don't mind to drive back through the mountains in the dark) from the parking place it's a 40 minutes walk up the mountain at almost 1800 m. high. It's not to heavy and quiet if... More

We visited Roque Nublo and are very pleased that we did. The whole surrounding area is stunning and well worth a visit, providing the weather is good.
