North: The route of water

The northern part of Gran Canaria is constantly influenced by the cool currents of the Atlantic Ocean and the rain they bring along. Green forests are to be found side by side extensive banana plantations. 

Water has an important presence in the north. If not though the rain, through the sea. High waves constantly beat the black cliffs of the northern shore, either by solitary lighthouses or fishermen villages built on rocky tongues that enter into the sea.

South: The route of fire

Whereas the northern part of the island is humid and green, the south is dry and warm. Almost all year long a bright sun shines over golden sand dunes, palm tree forests and white houses in small traditional villages made of irregular narrow streets.

The warm south also allocates the impressive dry and rough cliff where the original inhabitants of Gran Canaria fought their last battle against the Spaniards. When realising there was no chance of winning they jumped to the void instead of surrendering.

East: The route of air

The eastern side of the island is known for its frequent wind. A wind that helps world champion windsurfers fly several meters high above the waves, a wind that blows through the rocks creating natural geysers by oceanic waterfalls, a wind that whistles through the grape yards that produce the fresh Gran Canarian wine.

The East is also home of both painteresque self-constructed villages by the sea and some of the most antique constructions on the island.

Centre: The route of rock

Miguel de Unamuno, a famous Spanish writer, in a visit to Gran Canaria defined its interior landscape as a "petrified storm". Some of the most iconic symbols of the island are to be seen here, like the Roque Nublo or the sight over the Caldera de Tejeda.

Highlight the existence of troglodyte villages in the area with houses carved in the mountains and the large pine forests that cover most of the summit.

Las Palmas: The capital of the island

Las Palmas de Gran Canaria was the place chosen by the Spanish conquerers to build their first settlement. It allocates the most noble and rich examples of Canarian architecture on the island. 

As a contrast to its old district, the area around Las Canteras, a long and beautiful urban beach, is where surfers and alternative young people get together to enjoy an easy going lifestyle.

 
 
I absolutely loved my course with Tomás! As an instructor he’s incredibly patient, energetic and fun. I can’t recommend the course highly enough.
