Roque Nublor, Route to the heart of Gra Canaria

The Roque Nublo is a natural symbol of Gran Canaria, a “must visit” while you are on the Island. This route offers you the chance to enjoy of the grandiose landscape of the centre and west side of the Island. This Route runs through the Gran Canaria’s Biosphere Reservation (Unesco 2005). The unique scenery that you can see from this route was named “The Petrified Storm” by the philosopher Miguel de Unamuno in reference to its violent and spectacular shapes. The Roque Nublo Hiking Route starts in El Garañón, and runs through the border of the “Caldera de Tejeda” (the cauldron of Tejeda), which result from numerous volcanic eruptions along the History. Most of the time this path passes between endemic plant species such as the Canary pine trees (Pinus canariensis). From La Fogalera viewpoint the views becomes breathtaking,  we can see a stunning sight of the Roque Bentaiga from there, most of the days, we can also see the Mount Teide over the clouds. We will continue hiking around Roque Nublo up to its base, a large plain on which surface is set up this huge basaltic rock  (67 meters high from its base  – 1813 meters above sea level). Roque Nublo was declared Natural Monument in 1987 and belongs to the Rural Park of the Nublo. You can’t leave Gran Canaria without walking up to Roque Nublo.
