The Roque Nublo is the islands natural symbol and a definite must visit when you are on holiday on Gran Canaria.

This hiking route will make you enjoy of the spectacular landscape of the islands centre and west side and will also take us through an area, which was in 2005 declared by the Unesco to the Gran Canaria s Biosphere Reservation.
The grandiose scenery that you will see was named The Petrified Storm by the philosopher Miguel de Unamuno. When you´ll see its violent and spectacular shapes you´ll know exactly why he called it that way.

We are starting the Roque Nublo Hiking Route in El Garañón. From there it will take us along the bordernmof the Caldera de Tejeda (the cauldron of Tejeda). This area recieved its name as a result from numerous volcanic eruptions that have happend in the past. Most of the time we will be surroundet on this path by endemic plant species such as the Canary pine trees (Pinus canariensis).

Breathtaking views are waiting for us when we reach the viewpoint called La Fogalera. You will be impressed by the stunning sight of the Roque Bentaiga from there. Most of the days we also see Tenerife with its majestic Mount Teide showing his top over the clouds.
Our hike will take us around Roque Nublo all the way up to its top (1813 meters above sea level), a large flat part on which surface a huge basaltic rock (67 meters high from its base) is set up and pointing like a finger towards heaven. You will be well impressed by the beauty and peacefulness you will find there on the top.

In 1987, the Roque Nublo has been declared as Natural Monument and belongs to the Rural Park of the Nublo.

A holiday on Gran Canaria without walking up to Roque Nublo would be the same like visiting Rome without seeing the colosseum.

So make sure that you´re not missing out on that one!
