Gran Canaria, Canarias

Description

Gran Canaria

Gran Canaria is the third largest of Canary Islands, and is synonym to beach holidays. The shape is that of an orange with a very eroded and rugged interior. The mountains reach 1.949 metres, and here shrub and some forests enliven the otherwise rather bare and arid mountain slopes. The valleys are usually inhabited and cultivated.

The island has no great importance for hiking. The terrain is difficult. There are no obvious volcanic features, although the island is of course entirely of volcanic origin like all of the Canaries. Organised hiking is done on the island, and small trails have been marked. For those who have time and patience, interesting routes must be possible. Much of the island is protected. Especially the western part of Gran Canaria offers interesting natural and rural values.
