Gran Canaria Climates

The climate in Gran Canaria differs massively from the other canary islands. This is due to the mountain formations in the interior of the island. The various climate zones originate in the fact that the rain clouds brought from the North East Passat winds across the Atlantic Ocean are being caught on the mountain tops in the center of the island. Therefore it mostly rains only in the northern half, while the south is dry and hardly cloudy.


Gran Canaria Vegetation

In Gran Canaria you will find the typical subtropical and tropical plants as well as the plants growing in the continental climate. Some plants are special, as they developed in an unusual way, due of the prevailing conditions on the island. In addition, there are unique endemic plants, which grow exclusively on Gran Canaria or the Canary Islands. Due to these special features, 43% of the island's surface area is considered a nature reserve. During the guided hiking tour you will receive a lot of interesting information about the vegetation of Gran Canaria by your hiking guide.


The North of Gran Canaria

Despite the higher precipitation, the north is still very sun-drenched. This is why there are mild temperatures all year round in Las Palmas, Teror and Firgas. Nature flourishes here: palm groves, pine forests and the laurel forest, the remaining part of a primeval forest. There are also the best conditions for agriculture. In addition to tomato, potato and orange plantations, tropical fruits such as mango, papaya or avocado can also be found.


The East of Gran Canaria

Reservoirs, plateau with green meadows, gentle slopes as well as innumerable evergreen deep gorges that lead down to the coast, characterize the landscape in this part of Gran Canaria. Due to the prevailing wind conditions, the coast is very popular amongst wind surfers.

Monoliths formed by erosion, such as the Roque Nublo or the Roque Bentaiga, tower proudly up into the sky.


The South of Gran Canaria

There is always beautiful and pleasantly warm weather. This practically means a sun guarantee for the popular holiday destinations Playa del Ingles and Maspalomas. However, the south presents itself as a barren and rocky landscape. Accordingly, plants that can be found in deserts, such as many species of cacti grow here.
