Details, Itinerary

On this tour we will discover the most important and well-known sights of Gran Canaria.
Through the little towns, we gain insight into the culture, history, architecture of the island, and the lifestyle and customs of the Canarian people. From north to south we will cross the entire island through the highest mountain peaks, therefore we can also admire the island’s unique natural beauties. However, we can also observe a huge contrast of vegetation between the northern and southern parts of the island.

➣ During the tour we invite you to a cozy alfresco picnic where you can taste some of the products of Canarian gastronomy. (This is not a main meal, we have selected picnic treats and snacks in the basket, which are often found on the table of the locals.)

On this day you can expect mostly simple urban walks, in some places with a few steps.
Wearing warmer clothing during the winter months (November-March) is highly recommended because at altitudes above 1,500 meters (4900 feet) we can also encounter temperatures below 10 ºC, which feels even colder on a cloudy, windy day.

9:00 am
9:00 am

The tour begins in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria at 09:00. Meeting point is at the port exit (about 2 minutes walk from the gangway of your cruise ship, see the “where we’ll meet” picture below). We’ll wait for you at the stated time.

The religious center of Gran Canaria

Lasting experiences are found in the details. A special coffee drink, perfumes, atmosphere and much more awaits you. According to legend, a vision of the Virgin Mary appeared on a pine tree in a mountain village in 1481. (Hence the name of the island's patron saint, Nuestra Señora del Pino - “Our Lady of the Pine.”). Then over the years more and more pilgrims began to arrive in this small town. The inhabitants first built a chapel in honor of Mary, which was later replaced by a church. Finally, a basilica was built in 1767, which we also visit on this excursion.

The town has now become the religious center of Gran Canaria and the basilica is home to the island's patron saint. Here we will also find one of the most beautiful streets in Gran Canaria. The traditional Canarian wooden balconies are particularly impressive. And if you also want to know what purpose these balconies were originally built for and why we never see people on them, then this location will be the best place to get the answer. A short walk through the romantic streets with their post-colonial architecture will surely help you to experience the peaceful and stress-free life of the Canarian people and to feel the serenity of the authentic Canarian atmosphere.


Winding roads lead us through the green mountain landscape to our first viewpoint at an altitude of nearly 1000 meters. Here we will have a short photo break. There are great views over the valleys towards the capital and we can also observe the important role agriculture plays in the life of the people in the northern part of the island.

Geographical center of Gran Canaria

At an altitude of almost 1600 meters (5250 ft), a cross marks the geographical center of Gran Canaria. This place is bordered by historical roads that were also used by the aborigines centuries ago, and is now a popular hiking and leisure destination among locals. It is also home to the highest hotel on the island. The magnificent view makes us feel as if we are floating between the mountains of the island.
The typical summer weather in Las Palmas and the northern region has received a peculiar, distinctive name in the past. While admiring the scenery you can also meet the lovely eponymous subject here.

One of the most Beautiful Villages in Spain, Tejeda

We have arrived in the heart of the island. Before we continue our exploration, we will take a little rest and invite you to a delicious tapas picnic.

The next settlement on our tour was the first in the Canary Islands to appear on the prestigious list of the Most Beautiful Villages in SpainThis beautiful mountain village is set in a huge volcanic basin in the heart of Gran Canaria. This place provides an ideal view to the iconic monoliths Roque Nublo and Roque Bentayga, striking symbols of Gran Canaria. If we ask local people in Gran Canaria what there is in the village, they will tell us “almonds”.  So we can not miss a visit to the island's most famous confectionists where you can find a variety of cakes made with almonds. The combination of the magnificent view and the uniquely delicious cakes will ensure that our trip to this place will linger in your memory for a long time.


To conclude our tour we’ll stop in the capital at a viewpoint, overlooking Las Palmas where you can enjoy a beautiful view of the harbor and your cruise ship.

Plus many more great views and landmarks along the way..

A short drive back to the harbor, where the tour concludes at 17:30.
