Mountain and trekking lovers take advantage of the lightest excuse to return to Gran Canaria. You can blame it on the island, a very uncommon spot with a million different sceneries waiting to be discovered.
For Gran Canaria is not just an island filled with beaches, but rather a miniature continent with fine weather practically all year round. A small-scale continent in the middle of the sea, with a special blend of ingredients that lures trekkers.
Its intricate relief is the first of such ingredients; followed by a peculiar mix of palm-tree groves and pine forests, ravines, and royal paths that wind through the mountains, yielding a huge jigsaw puzzle of different sceneries, so different from each other as the types of yoghurt at a supermarket.
