  • The lava is everywhere, as the volcanic island. Not obvious interpretation that my pinkie toe on the sky: how it is created? where was the crater? The site is fascinating even if not mysterious for a curious geologist. Getting there, han said all, I'm not saying that ...

  • Roque Nublo is a huge natural phallus sticking out of the ground. It is an easy walk from the free (but not really big enough) car park along a mix of paved and dirt/stone tracks. Well worth a view, a...  more »
  • You can drive on winding roads almost single front. Last mile you walk up a very easy hike. When coming up will be richly rewarded with the island's best views. Among the best thing we did.

  • 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.
