Today, we decided to take a trip to "Pico de Las Nieves". Gran Canaria's highest point, 1956 meters above sea level.
We started in Puerto de Mogan on the south side. Google maps suggested two options and we chose the shortest route. My suggestion is...More
Whoever has been on Teide (the mountain on neighbouring Tenerife) is disappointed by this "peak". I took a walk from Cruz Grande - relatively nice 700 m to ascend however as the hunting season had started there were dogs barking and with the rifle sounds...More
Friday 22nd September and we visited here which is the highest point on the Island at 1,949 metres with spectacular views for miles around. The whole area forms part of the World Biosphere Reserve of Gran Canaria declared by UNESCO 29th June 2005.
Driving up the winding roads, overseeing the valleys and being rewarded by the fantastic views and a taste of life away from the noise of 21st century life. Fab. All enhanced by the smell of fresh pine. Don't miss it!

Unfortunately unless you drive or know the bus routes as a local there is no way to get this location using public transport, even going on a guided tour took us 2 hours to reach the summit, whilst you are in resort ask your reps about the 'summit sunset tour' which is how we got up there. It is a fully guided tour with tapas at the end of the night and cost around 90€ for 2 of us. If you have gone with Thompson/TUI there should be able to sort it out for you
