The natural environment which the Island of Gran Canaria offers its inhabitants and visitors make it worthy of the name "miniature continent".

The gentle climate which reigns throughout the Island all year is the perfect invitation to enjoy a wide variety of open air sports: trekking, rock climbing or bike routes are some of the best alternatives for tourists on the Island.
Gran Canaria, biking paradise
It is well known that Gran Canaria is the perfect place to escape to in the winter with its 128 beaches and 24ºC average temperature all year round.
But very few people are aware of the central mountainous area, providing mountain biking paradise. Gran Canaria is a miniature continent with a privileged eco-system. It has 32 natural protected areas, 8 nature reserves and around 100 native plant species. In Gran Canaria you can witness the evolving flora – the island is as important for scientists in terms of botany as the Galapagos Islands is for zoology.
Due to its morphology, the island is mountainous with abrupt and spectacular landscapes. Both the mountain and road routes here are characterised by the almost complete absence of plains and the constant presence of stones due to its volcanic origin.
The northern part of Gran Canaria is a beautiful and picturesque area. Old cliffs stretching along the western coast, winding asphalt roads and suspended clouds at the tops of mountains are views that will remain long in the memory. Clean air, high humidity, constant temperature in the range 21-27C and good surface paved roads make the island a year-round paradise cycling.
In contrast to the southern coast of Gran Canaria, the northern part of the island is a place where you can relax from the daily hustle and bustle, you gain vital energy, and every day will be savoring the beautiful views, or their discoverer.
