Las Palmas de Gran Canaria

Starting with the lungs of the city, Las Canteras, a 3 km long beach where you can stroll, enjoy the breeze, the atmosphere and the restaurants and leisure activities that surround it. In addition, of course, to the presence of the Alfredo Kraus Auditorium.

Day 2: Red Canyon Excursion

One of the most beautiful places on the island is the Caldera de Tirajana. It is located in the centre of Gran Canaria, formed by erosion due to the extreme weather conditions and the existence of impermeable layers in the ground interspersed between lava flows.  

Discover the amazing landscapes between impressive reddish cliffs that form it, thanks to the tours that we can find.  

Day 3: Agaete

In the north of Gran Canaria is the municipality of Agaete. This place is characterised by its rocky beaches and the Dedo de Dios, which broke on 28 November 2005 due to the tropical storm Delta that shook the island.

You can also savour typical Canarian dishes in the different restaurants in the town.

Day 4: Arucas

Another charming place is Arucas. This municipality, where the famous «Fiestoron» festival is held, has such beautiful places as its enormous cathedral. 

The church of San Juan Bautista, converted into a cathedral since its reconstruction at the beginning of the 20th century, is neo-Gothic in style, with sculptures of Italian origin and paintings from the Flemish and Andalusian schools. One of the best pace to visit in our one week in Gran Canaria

Day 6: Aqualand 

Enjoy a different kind of day out at the Aqualand water park. Whether with family, friends or as a couple, have a great time with the attractions of this park that will undoubtedly make you spend an unforgettable day. 

Day 7: Enjoying the island

Gran Canaria not only has hundreds of places to see and visit, it also has hundreds of activities to do and enjoy. 

Being an island, we can do activities both on land and sea: jet skiing, catamaran experience, parasailing excursion, snorkelling etc. To put the cherry on top of our experience before catching the plane again!
