Mountain Bike Route in Northern Forests of Gran Canaria

Quick Details

Person • Mountain bike tour 3 hours tour

Discover the stunning beauty of Gran Canaria’s Northern Forests with RockNatour’s Mountain Bike Route

After the presentation, we will choose the bike that best suits us and we will warm up a little on the flat to test our bikes. We will visit the Valleseco Lagoon, a beautiful place where we can enjoy the landscape and learn more about the route that awaits us. It is an easy route with some more technical parts (which you can always do on foot if you don’t feel capable) of 10 km long and 400 meters of descent and 80 meters of ascent on normal mountain bikes.

We will enjoy tracks where we can go at our own pace, enjoying the landscape and the terrain with the bikes. Optionally we can walk into a cave with flashlights to appreciate the laborious work for its creation. Then we will reach the highest mountains of the Barranco de Azuaje, from here we begin to descend along trails changing the forest of pines, laurisilva and eucalyptus until we reach Firgas, the Pueblo del Agua, where we will visit it with a local guide to learn more about the canarian culture.
