  • We are in the highest viewpoint of Gran Canaria. To enjoy an excellent panoramic view, there is nothing better to climb to its highest point. In Gran Canaria, the Watchtower is the viewpoint of the pico de Las Nieves, located in the Centre of the island, 1,949 metres above sea level. Since there is the broad sector of the island declared biosphere reserve by Unesco, with its myriad of deep ravines with edges sharpened, covered with vegetation and crowned by volcanic Pitons in enigmatic ways. For this show well deserves the penalty lead or to get to the top of them Nieves. Next to the car park, opens a coated stone semicircle that is perfectly oriented to the West. It is the viewpoint, simple and without obstacles that hinder a good sunset view. Unlike other places, the days of clouds provide best views at Las Nieves, because then you can see how Tenerife and Gran Canaria seem to float on a sea of clouds.

  • Mirador del Pico de los Pozos de la Nieve is the highest point on Gran Canaria. A point is slightly below the highest peak of the island, on which the fenced military base. From the point offers stunning views of the tops of the Roque Nublo and Roque Bentayga and Pargana Valley and Los Llanos de la Pez to blue ocean behind them. When the weather in the East you can see mists woven Tenerife with emerging from the clouds peak volcano El Teide. The easiest way to Maspalomas get there by car coming North by GC-60. For San Bartolome de Tirajana in the village of Tejeda turn right in GC-600. After a few kilometres we reach the junction with the road GC-130 leading to the Summit. We ride through the pine forest until we get to the fork in the road, where you turn right in the GC-134 (signpost Pozo Las Nieves). We get to the military post and in front of the gate to her turn right coming in this way to the parking lot under the demand for cancellation.
