I was quite shocked by the count of shopping malls on Gran Canaria. Especially the south was just too much. I was really surprised when I drove off to the inland. Pico de las Nieves makes you forget all the mess on the coast. High...More

This was without a doubt one of the highlights of our trip. We had an amazing day driving in a circular route through the valleys and mountains. We drove from Playa del Ingles, through Aguimes and into the Barranco de Guayadeque, from here we drove...More

We were part of a sunset summit tour marketed by our Tui rep and were fortunate enough to have a beautiful clear view of the sunset over Mount Tiede in Tenerife. Experiencing a glass of bubbly at Pico de las Nieves while watching the sunset,...More

Hired a car to drive to the top - some scary corners, and narrow roads, Certainly need to be a good driver and head for heights. Lovely day out

We drove here from Puerto Rico and came across the crater en-route. This Pico is well sign-posted once you get close. There's not enough parking (especially with a big foody truck there..). We parked on the side just off road as there was no car...More

This was my favourite part of my trip to Gran Canaria. Absolutely breathtaking. I was lucky enough to visit on an extremely clear day and could see Mount Tiede on Tenerife from the peak. If you are in Gran Canaria then you must go!!

Was relatively painless to drive to, we didn’t see any coach tours there and so it’s reasonable to assume you will need a car to access this spot. The very small space for parking atop confirms this. The views were spectacular! We could even see...More

Questions & Answers
We read that Pico De las Nieves was easy to get to from Maspolomas without having to spend out on a excursion or taxi. We don't drive and rely on bus routes. We read that a line 18 bus to Aycata then a simple 16 minute walk from Aycata would get us there but now we are in gran Canaria we are being told that it is almost impossible to do it this way and that from Aycata it would take a few hours to get there and not advised to try go there. This was going to be the highlight of our holiday and now it looks like we can't get there. We are in gran Canaria right now and was hoping if someone could tell us if the hotel and holiday reps could be wrong and maybe not clued up to the bus and walk routes? Can we get there easily and easily get back to and from Maspolomas using the line 18 bus and is it a short walk from Aycata? We don't drive and don't want to spend over 50 euros on a coach excursion or huge taxi fares to get there as we are a young couple on a tight budget. I need some time there as a keen photographer. Please can anyone help out here? Is it easy to get to or not using a line 18 bus? We found a website called Rome for u and it states it would be cheap as chips on a line 18 bus then a 16 minute walk??? I am confused?? Really need some help as leaving gran Canaria on Friday so pushed for time. Really want to go here. it was this place that drew us to the Island. :(
