Experience the full diversity of Gran Canaria with ease, in a day, on this island coach tour. See the capital, Las Palmas, before exploring the island’s central mountains, forests, and palm-filled valleys. Visit viewpoints, admire the Roque Nublo pinnacle and balconied houses of Canarian villages, and tour a rum factory as you uncover Gran Canaria’s history and culture. South coast and Las Palmas pickup (additional cost), plus an optional upgrade for priority boarding are available.
What to Expect

The tour will follow along the east coast to Arucas, to visit the unique modern gothic church of Saint John and the rum distillery with the largest rum cellar in Europe, with the possibility of tasting.

By climbing up through the centre of the island, you will admire the magnificent views of northern Gran Canaria and then the tour will follow to the city of Las Palmas. In Teror, the pilgrimage village, there are several examples of the typical architecture of the island like the "balcones" or the "Basilica".

After that, follow to the green core of the island to discover deep valleys and stunning mountain views, described by the famous Spanish poet Unamuno as a “frozen tempest“ and naturally including the “Roque Nublo” y “El Teide” peak. After the peak, the tour will follow to the almond trees of Ayacata, San Bartolomé and the village of “Fataga”, known as the “Valley of the Thousand Palms”.
