Walking on Gran Canaria

Gran Canaria has an extensive network of hiking trails, in Spanish "Senderos '. A number of paths get the designation 'Caminos Real' because, centuries ago, commissioned by the Spanish kings, they were constructed in order to make to the Interior more accessible.

Reliable information about the walks, however, is hard to find. For the second time already we have made use of the Sunflower Guide, which describes in detail a large number of walks. You can probably order it on Amazon.

Since, because of the heat, we did not walk a lot during our first visit, we are giving also a description of a number of car tours through the barrancos. In our view, there is sufficient potential for walks to come back here for another week. Within a few years maybe, you will find here more.
