When it is clear, the views are fantastic - but it isn't always clear. It took two visits before we saw anything from the top! It can also be very cold at this altitude even when it is very hot on the coast - so...More

Miradors by the score in Gran Canaria and this was another one where the views were stunning and the effort to drive there worthwhile. Beautiful views of mountains and valleys and reasonable parking facilities.

We went up the hill with Opel Zafira Tourer, 7 seats full of people. We were driving from south side, so it was a lot of fun. Small roads bit dangerous, but views were breath taking and that definitely was one of the best roads...More

Yes the view is amazing, but the journey there is what it's about. Drive to the top, then walk 50 meters to the peak. There was a snack truck parked there. Only about room for 10 cars, so best to go early. Don't go if...More

There are amazing panoramic views from the top. You can see the coast and many amazing peaks too. It’s a bit busy at the top on narrow roads. There was a van selling drinks and snacks at the top.

Questions & Answers

We read that Pico De las Nieves was easy to get to from Maspolomas without having to spend out on a excursion or taxi. We don't drive and rely on bus routes. We read that a line 18 bus to Aycata then a simple 16 minute walk from Aycata would get us there but now we are in gran Canaria we are being told that it is almost impossible to do it this way and that from Aycata it would take a few hours to get there and not advised to try go there. This was going to be the highlight of our holiday and now it looks like we can't get there. We are in gran Canaria right now and was hoping if someone could tell us if the hotel and holiday reps could be wrong and maybe not clued up to the bus and walk routes? Can we get there easily and easily get back to and from Maspolomas using the line 18 bus and is it a short walk from Aycata? We don't drive and don't want to spend over 50 euros on a coach excursion or huge taxi fares to get there as we are a young couple on a tight budget. I need some time there as a keen photographer. Please can anyone help out here? Is it easy to get to or not using a line 18 bus? We found a website called Rome for u and it states it would be cheap as chips on a line 18 bus then a 16 minute walk??? I am confused?? Really need some help as leaving gran Canaria on Friday so pushed for time. Really want to go here. it was this place that drew us to the Island. :(
