Unesco gran canaria tour

Discover Unesco Gran Canaria World heritage with Sky Rebels.

From 07/07/2019, Risco Caido and the sacred mountains of Gran Canaria belongs to UNESCO World Heritage. We want to show you this amazing area so you will understand the history and culture of Canarian aborigins.

The route

We will pick you at your hotel entrance (hotels located in Maspalomas) from 8.45 to 9.15 (we will let you know the exact pickup time when confirming your booking) with “Lupita” – our new climatized minivan ready for a maximum of 6 passengers-.  

Our first stop will be at “La Fortaleza de Ansite”, an interesting archaeological site near Santa Lucía de Tirajana, to learn the history of the last Canarian aborigins. 

After this, we are going to head directly to the sacred mountains of Gran Canaria. We are going to stop at the Roque Bentayga visitor’s centre to know the legend of this “almogaren” and to learn about the rituals that the Canarios used to do in this sacred place.

On our way to Tamadaba forest, we are going to do a fast stop to discover Tejeda, considered one of the most beautiful villages in Spain, to contemplate incredible landscapes. 

The next point will be the depths of the forest of Tamadaba to get to Risco Faneque. This is one of the highest cliffs in the World with 1.027 over sea level; so be ready for breathtaking views! Here we are going to stop to recover energy with a buffet picnic including homemade food (since we are in a protected area we are not going to live cooking to prevent the risk of fire).

When we finish lunch, we are going to head our next point of the route: Artenara, the highest villages in Gran Canaria, where we can enjoy a coffee and take a walk in this gorgeous village.

Time to go to the east, we are going to stop in several points to get views, including “Drago de Pino Santo” the centenary native trees of the Canary Islands and “Caldera de Bandama”, a famous volcanic crater in the northeast.

Finally, we are going to take the motorway to head to our last point: the emblematic Maspalomas lighthouse, where we are going to finish and celebrate the end of this great adventure following the path of the Canarian aborigins.
