After a couple of days of laying on the sun bed we decided to leave the hotel for some sightseeing and man we were not disappointed at the decision! The pictures do not do it justice, it is really nice up there and it was really an easy climb. We have seen people with slippers and from young kids to... More

We spent a day away from the beach. It is a must going inland over the volcanos to find Roque Nublo. From what ever view point or approach this is spectacular. The drive was wonderful with fantastic view point that uou pass showing a different angle to these fantastic mountains. By the time you reach Roque Nublo or even if... More

Been a few times now and have directed guests to go as well. Worth it. No water, food, washrooms or trash bins on trail after parking lot do please plan accordingly. Can travel by Global (Inter- Island) Busses for inexpensive price however bus times do limit how long you can stay or increase need for overnight gear.

Great alternative to a beach relax. My tips: 1) rent a car; 2) go there at sunset - the colours of the sky get incredible; 3) bring a flash lamp to light your way back to the car; 4) bring some extra clothes - after sunset it gets chilly; 5) get proper shoes. Trip there by car until you reach... More

We had a hire car and this was on our list of things not to miss. The journey to get there was interesting but well worth it, parking is hit or miss and some people got their cars jammed in by stupid, thoughtless parking from other selfish drivers obviously not to worried about their cars. Take water, a hat and... More

Hello, beautiful place, but you must pay attention. We let the car next the road, because on the park place wasn´t free place. We were off approx. two hours. When we came back to the car everything looks good. But from the inside the car was missed guide book and glasses. The car was open and closed without corruption! The... More

Group tours do NOT go to the Roque, they barely even pass by it. Rent a car, take the exciting drive! Actually the drive is worth doing for it's own sake. Take the time to stop at the sometimes too small parking lot and walk up to the Roque, the experience is well worth it. 1.1 kilometers from parking to... More

We hired a car for two days and took the rather hairy road up here! But once here, it was worth it. Little van selling cold drinks, ice creams and food on the car park. Take a bottle of water with you as it is very hot up there! Easy-ish walk up to the top. took around and hour and... More

As a family with a few hours to spare having visited Puerto Mogan, we decided to detour our return trip and visit Roque Nublo. It was a gruelling, long, slow drive which afforded wonderful views but isn't for inexperienced drivers or the faint hearted. The kids loved the journey there but found little to entertain them when we arrived. I... More

Took about 75 minutes drive from Maspolomas, lots of hairpin bends & lots that actually turn back the way you have just come. Well signposted & free parking. The walk up to the top was over very rough terrain & the final bit was too dangerous to risk, would have made it up alright but was very rough & steep... More
