    A perfect introduction to mountain biking on Gran Canaria. Today’s route proving that the mountains and isolated wilderness are literally just minutes away from the tourist areas. A long rocky track takes you deeper and deeper in to the famous “Grand Canyon”, then long loose climbs up past lonely farms and orange groves. You’ll traverse deep gorges and ravines, before …

    Our Green North Tour begins at a viewpoint with views of 360 degrees North of Gran Canaria. Through the Eucalyptus forests at first, we gradually build our ability to deal with the technical terrain. We got to the village of Agua, Firgas for lunch. We recover extra energy as there is an uphill ahead, rewarded by incredible trails with good flow to the Picacho. Grand Finale in the rocky fields before descending to the historic centre of Arucas.
