  • For the nth time, we borrowed the GC60 road to go around 10: 00 in the Roque Nublo and discover this beautiful ballad shady friends. Recognizes tourists resembling moderate and cautious in turns... very many. Plan to arrive before 10: 00 because the parking lot is small, in a very bad state. 1.5 km and 20 minutes of ascent to the plateau and the roque nublo. Provide good shoes and eventually sticks for the descent (2 slopes with stones). Before arrival around 11-12 pm of tourists, you can benefit from the quiet and beautiful pictures. Very nice view on clear days off on the famous volcano Teide (3718 m). The Ballad to make and remake in Gran Canaria.

  • If you have a car, already the serpentine road to Roque Nublo is quite an experience. Parking area is usually full is you arrive after 11 am... The path to the peak is easy in the beginning, but takes...  more »
  • Indeed, this site is a staple of gran canaria, part of Morgan, the road is quite steep but so exceptional! Once arrived on the scene, the market is quite feasible of course shoes properly. Panoramic view that makes one forget the small effort of ascent.

  • While the giant rock is impressive, the views all around it are even better. On the downside this is pretty much the only hike on Gran Canaria that is really crowded with tourists. So, if you like to hike on your own, there are better places to go.
  • Fantastic place with fantastic views. Peaceful and serene. The drive there is a treat in its own right (Just don't look down). This is the true unspoilt Canarian forest mountains.
  • This is a very nice walk up to the Torque Nublo a major monument of Gran Canaria. The walk from the car park takes about 30 mins. I would suggest some shoes with grip, it is cooler than the rest of the island due to the altitude and the views are not to be missed.
  • It's not the rock itself, but the views that open up once you walk around it. A bit dangerous, but lots of people sitting down and enjoying the views. One of the best places I've been to in my life.
  • Quite a bit of tourists up there but still way less than in the beach resorts. And the view is just magnificent.
