(approx. 500 km, 8 days / 7 nights, guided tour)
The Canary Islands are located outside the coast of Africa. As southernmost island, Gran Canaria offers a mild, almost constant climate. Temperatures around 22°C make roadbike rides comfortable, even though the island is rising from sea level to the highest point, Pico de las Nieves, at 1951 m.
On 6 guided tours, you will discover the beauty of the island and enjoy cycling in the sun. The scenery is stunning, but very different to Europe: almost desert at the coast, up to wild canyons and small forests in the mountains. It is possible to rent a bike on Gran Canaria and if you like, you can even go for a performance diagnostics by Mathias Nothegger, winner of the Ötztal Cycle Marathon 2018.
