We could call this spectacular route "The breathtaking 3" because you will discover three of Gran Canaria´s most beautiful natural places: Natural triangle of Gran Canaria - Caldera de Los Marteles, Tirajanas and Guayadeque s Valley.

The Caldera de Los Marteles, is where our hiking route starts, a crater, with when standing on the side of it, an even more impressive 550 meters of diameter and a depth of 80 m. Before we start walking we will stand still for a moment, take a deep breath and enjoy the outstanding views over the Roque de Tenteniguada, and the volcanoes of La Isleta in the far away capital Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.

After making the crossing of the Caldera de los Marteles, the next place we will enter next is the beautiful landscape of the upper side of Guayadeque.

Guayadeque s Valley is a place of great interest for various reasons: the vegetation (it accounts with numerous endemic species) the history of the valley (it was home to a large pre-hispanic community) and geological (the size of the walls of the Valley are impressive) and give most of the Valley s inhabitants the chance to live in comfortable caves.

The old inhabitants living in this area have built impressive terraces to create useful farm land and up until today, they can still live abandoned and remain awesome.

The path leadind us towards the top of Guayadeque s mountains is surrounded with a large number of endemic plants (Tajinastes, Veroles, Marganzas ) and almond trees, just like a botanical garden. The colours of thousands of different flowers are turning the valley in gran canaria every year again from february until may into a real paradise.

Amazing views over the huge Caldera de Tirajanas, the Amurga Mountain range and also the Fataga Valley awaiting us the moment we reach the top of the mountain. Once you are there you will realize immediately that this is a very special and peaceful place.

Bit by bit the vegetation changes and we will make our way back through a canarian pine forest that will lead us to the Caldera de los Marteles, the starting point of our hiking tour.
