Hiking Laurel Forest Gran Canaria

On this tour you will be hiking in the laurel forest of Gran Canaria in the nature reserve “Los Tilos de Moya”. The last remnant of a subtropical jungle that once covered much of the north of the island is part of the Doramas Natural Park. After a climb through a densely covered ravine, you will pass through fabulous landscapes with breathtaking scenery, up to the “Sphinx”. From here, you can admire and enjoy the view onto the endemic plant world of Gran Canaria during your lunch break, a true jewel for nature lovers. Finally, you’ll start with the descent after the picnic. Through a deep and lush gorge with giant eucalyptus trees along lemon and orange plantations you’re going back to the starting point. Hiking in the laurel forest of Gran Canaria is truly unforgettable and unique!

This hiking tour is also available for holidaymakers in Las Palmas!

    I had 3 hiking excursions in total. I enjoyed all my hikes they were set at a good pace and were very informative on the landscape and entertaining.

    The tour was first class both professionally and personally and the previous contact (that the confirmation was sent to me again on WhatsApp) was worth a special praise. Keep up the good work!

    Our holiday has already been a while ago but we were very enthusiastic and this is why I am writing something. Manfred is a great guide who tells a lot about nature and the island and is very nice. Our group was not big and he took care of each one of us! We recommend! Everything is perfectly organized. Many Thanks! 🙂 We will go back with you!

    … Everything was perfectly organized: pick up at the hotel, transport to the starting point, picnic, and of course the tour itself.
    Forest, mountains, cliffs, sun, shade, … all that makes hiking fun with lots of variety!
    The guide knows a great deal about fauna and flora and stops regularly to explain the herbs or let us try and smell them….
