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.

Difficulty

You have to count with a more demanding riding experience, mainly due to the very long all-day descents and the stony and dry surface. All trails are usually between blue and red with some black sections. If the Enduro trails turn out to be too much for us or we want to try something new, we can reduce the difficulty by a notch at any time and switch to trails meant for the All-mountain category and experience a slightly different experience. We will determine the exact set of trails together on the spot with local guides based on the group’s preferences and abilities, as well as the weather and condition of the trails.
