General tour description

This hike tour takes us to one of the (rare) remaining “jungle” gorges in the northern part of the island. Depending the weather conditions we go hiking into the northeast or in the north. Where, in some valleys and gorges, still (small) rivers determine how environment looks like after …centuries. In some of these gorges, water still runs through the river bed and form small waterfalls and small creeks year-round. We will make our way partially through fascinating, jungle-like” vegetation – amazing that we really still are in Gran Canaria !

On some spots paths can be narrow, some of them can be steep.

Acrophobia problem ?Normally no problem. Please inform and inquire for conditions on the spot .
