It is also one of the most popular winter bike destinations for all forms of riding XC, All-mountain to Enduro. Like the entire Canary Islands, Gran Canaria is of volcanic origin and, thanks to its combination with its proximity close to Africa and the resulting tropical climate, represents a unique adventure. The volcanic sandy ground shifting colors from red, through black to gold, arid cactuses strewn across the mountains like in the deserts of Utah. The landscape switches to beautiful green pine forests surrounded by bare peaks rising up to almost 2,000 meters above sea provide literally breathtaking views. It’s a mountain bikers dream, as the descents are almost endless with 25-50kms with one shuttle to the top all the way to the ocean. During this trip, you will get to know all parts of the island during 4 riding days with local guides and shuttling every day (for a minimum of uphill with about 200-400 height meters). Specifically, it is the South, the most popular location, will go here trails such as the unique Camino de la Plata, interesting for its stone character and its “paved road” with many switchbacks or the El Diablo trail, often literally carved into the mountain, the North with its epic Green Nirvana trails, or the East with the extremely long Guayadeque (over 50km) at the bottom along the ocean. The island itself is less than 70kms wide, we can easily change our plans for the day, e.g. in case of bad weather in one part of the island and go in another direction. The weather should be ideal for riding with a pleasant 17 degrees. It is the perfect EN/AM destination and a source of unforgettable experiences.
