Hiking Tours by Manfred Ritsch
TUESDAY - THE LAUREL FOREST
(7.5km, 300m ascent, 300m descent)
The laurel forest is like a true jungle and magnificant remnants of his forest surivve on the higher northern slopes of Gran Canaria. After a steep climb on forest paths and farm tracks, we are rewarded with some breathtaking views overlooking cultivated countryside and down into lush ravines.
The tour is rather on the medium to easy level, with a difficulty level of 2. But it shouldn't not be underestimated, although one of the most sensational tours, it can be demanding for really unexperienced hikers.
THURSDAY - KESTREL CANYON
(7.5km, 250m ascent, 250m descent)
Into the lush volcano landscapes to see the fertility of the real Gran Canaria
Our tour starts in the remote north east of Gran Canaria. This volcanically themed location has specific minerals found in the lava which support rare forms of vegeta¬tion. A small stream flows down the valley all year and in the rainy season reforms the landscape and sustains the jungle like vegetation with the humidity and moisture. The tour ends with the visit to the famous cave village of Guayadeque.
This tour has a difficulty level of 1,5.
FRIDAY - ROQUE NUBLO
(8km, 370 ascent, 280 descent)
Our hike beings in "Lomo Aserrador", after which we will start hiking upwards to our destination. After walking for about 3 hours we'll be arriving at the symbol of the island, the Roque Nublo. Being of volcanic origin, the Roque Nublo rises 80m above its base plateau and 1813m above the sea level. In ancient times, the Roque Nublo was a cult gathering location for the aborigines. You can feel the absolute uniqueness of this place.
This tour is rather demanding, with a difficulty level of 2,5.
