It may measure only 50 kilometres in diameter, but Gran Canaria possesses scenery on a grand scale. There are peaks that rise to almost 2,000 metres; crags and towering rock formations that wouldn’t look out of place in Arizona; wide open spaces; black volcanic cones offset by the vibrant green of Canarian pines; and even a huge caldera reminiscent of the Grand Canyon.Such topography makes for dramatic walking. Starting in a valley that faces the distant south coast, this holiday is a rewarding journey northwards through the central mountains to the sea on the other side of the island, with abrupt changes in scenery as you progress through three very distinct landscapes: the volcanic interior and its scenery of grand proportions; the quiet north-west coast; and the green, pastoral landscapes that lie in between. Impressive views greet you at every turn – not just of Gran Canaria’s own towering peaks, but also the soaring cone of El Teide on Tenerife, some 70 miles away – providing you with a real sense of achievement.
