Tour Details

A Taste of Gran Canaria

Gran Canaria is one of Spain's Canary Islands, off northwestern Africa, and is known for its black lava and white sand beaches. In the north, the capital city of Las Palmas is a major stop for cruise ships and duty free shopping. Spend the day exploring part of this unique island, the third largest island in the Canaries archipelago.

Travel first to the north and to Arucas, a small town famous for its large banana plantations. While here, stroll through the neoclassical streets and make your way to the church of St. John the Baptist, built entirely by hand.

Continue your journey to Agaete, a picture perfect fishing village that has a lively artistic community. In the historic centre is the church of Iglesia de La Concepcion, which replaced the primitive chapel (1515) and gave rise to the first streets and town square of the municipality. Take a break by the sea and have a bite to eat if you so choose (at additional cost).

Conclude your tour with a visit to the ancient valley of Berrazales, famous for its coffee, wine and tropical fruits. When you arrive to the valley the landscape takes a dramatic change to a lush, green tropical forest of beauty. Relax with a memorable cup of coffee before your return to port.

This 7-hour tour offers you a perfect overview of the beauty, diversity and culture of Gran Canaria, book now.
