Die Mandelbaumroute

Diese Wanderung ist aufgrund der überwältigenden Vulkanlandschaft besonderes beeindruckend. Sie verläuft durch ein schroffes, zerklüftetes Gebiet, das durch die fortwährende Erosion im Verlauf von Millionen von Jahren entstanden ist. Dieser Erosionsprozess hat die eigentümlichsten Felsformationen entstehen lassen, die für die Bevölkerung Gran Canarias schon seit jeher eine besondere Symbolkraft verkörpern.

The Laurisilva route in our Festival will take place on Friday, the 4th of November.

We’ve been telling you for a while that we offer much more than just a hiking event, as our main purpose is to show you all the fascinating wonders we have in Gran Canaria.
In this route we will demonstrate how the ‘alisios’ winds are essential for the forest we have in the island, which we know as Selva de Doramas.

La idea de dividir las vacaciones y aprovechar parte de ellas para escapar del frío invernal es una opción que tiene muchas ventajas.

The countdown has already started for the organization of the V Gran Canaria Walking Festival. All the details of the event are being settled and, as the past years, the participants will enjoy the wonders of the island, its landscapes and most recognizable places.

Ruta del Almendro

Esta ruta destaca por el espectacular y monumental paisaje volcánico, mostrándonos un relieve muy agreste y accidentado producto de la erosión acaecida durante millones de años. Dicho proceso ha esculpido en la roca diferentes y peculiares formas que han sido o son motivo de simbolismo para los habitantes de Gran Canaria.

Ruta del Almendro

This route boasts of a volcaninc breathtaking landscape, which shows a very rough terrain due to millions of years of erosion. This continuous process has carved rocks in peculiar shapes that have been charged of symbolism to the inhabitants of Gran Canaria.

It starts rounding the westside of Tejeda’s great volcanic crater, walking on ancient volcanic materials, some of them dates back of 15 millions of years ago, others, the latest ones are 5 and 3 million of years old. Later, we step into the huge depression in the terrain to arrive to the charming neighborhood of Culata de Tejeda, place which shows us a magnificent example of traditional crops and old canarian houses with gabled roof tiles.
