  • A bit of a stroppetur to the top, but should be fit to get completely up. I had my smallest 8 by hand and security there are places where you can dratte 25 down. Splendid sweeping views, the entire trip of about 40 minutes worth.

  • The hinterland of Gran Canaria is all amazing and the Roque Nublo is the emblem. Can be reached in about half an hour walk from the parking lot of the Goleta on the GC600. But if you like to walk, I recommend you go back to the parking lot with an alternative route, through a well marked trail totals 4.4 km. Since Roque is back on the trail made the outward until the exit where you take the path that meanders through La Culata, direction S70 pine forest leading down into a Gorge from which you have different views of the mythical Roque. Arrived almost at the end of the Valley, take the path back to the parking lot of Goleta, which consists of 1.2 km of difficult but easy to climb. Advice to those wishing to walk in the area to get info at the tourist information Office of Tejeda, which is open until 17 and it works fine.

  • Very beautiful views open on top, but it take into account that in November the weather above may differ from coast very strongly, the temperature at 26 on the coast above about 10 degrees, and the frequent cloudiness. We had to come here twice, the first time until reached the peak parking severely tightened the clouds and go was not meaningless. The second time it all came together better. Myself trekking from the parking lot to order and takes hours to one side. With a worth having warm clothes and comfortable shoes.

  • 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.
