Description

Hiking Falcon Valley Gran Canaria

Hiking or walking in the Falcon Valley does not sound really spectacular at first. But Gran Canaria experts already know that this is a very special spot in the remote north-east of the island, as a small stream is flowing down this valley all year long.
Due to the water richness you will find an almost jungle-like vegetation here, like nowhere else on the island. Enjoy the lush nature while your hiking tour through the Barranco de los Cernicalos, as the Falcon Valley is called in Spanish.
The tour ends with a visit to the picturesque village Agüimes. Here you get some free time to visit the historical town center and to see its emblematic parish church of San Sebastian. The building is a beautiful example of the canary neoclassic architecture and a declared National Artistic Monument.

    It was wonderful!! We were picked up from the hotel on time. Sophie has accompanied us and she was really great! Enthusiast with a lot of knowledge! She knows every plant and answers every question.
    The ravine was fantastic, very green and has many small waterfalls! The tour must must be made with Guide. Otherwise you will get lost and you won’t really “understand” the gorge (it’s flora, fauna, volcanism, …). In the end we visited a Cave-Village where we drunk coffee in a cave bar!

    Last Thursday we had the chance to experience the hike through the Falcon Valley with Sofie. It was a great and really impressive hike. Sofie has brought us a whole lot closer to nature and we still are
    completely delighted. Thank you thank you thank you!!! We will always cherish this memory. The Whatsapp contact to submit the photos worked wonderfully!

    We did enjoy our day. The guides were very knowledgeable and fluent in English and German (as well as Spanish ). We would be interested in longer walks as well.

    Wolfgang

    I am thrilled. Complete all-round service: pick-up at the hotel, drive to the Falcon Valley, hike in two small groups of 12 – 14 people, supply of water, rolls and – if desired – hiking poles and rental hiking boots. Friendly atmosphere, nice conversations – and many good explanations about nature and more.
