Grand Canyon - Mountain bike excursion on Gran Canaria

Breathtaking mountain views, steady climbs, and exhilarating descents! Light lunch included.

As we check-in at the Free Motion Hub in Playa del Inglés, we are ready to embark on today's MTB tour. We start with a gentle 12km warm-up on a winding tarmac road that takes us through the beautiful Ayagaures Valley. The scenery is breathtaking, and we are excited to explore the trails ahead.

Upon arriving in the village of Ayagaures, we hit the trail and continue straight north, deeper into the valley. The MTB dirt track we follow eventually comes to a dead-end, but the ride is well worth it as we experience some spectacular nature along the way. We then return on the same track and stop for a short lunch break in Ayagaures to restore our energy levels.

After lunch, we ride up the hill to the east and enter what we call the Grand Canyon region. This area is spectacular with mountains, ravines, and breathtaking views. We make our way along a dirt track and cross three ravines before reaching the Fataga Valley.

From here, it's pretty much all downhill! We follow a fun singletrack trail, built by local MTB enthusiasts, down to San Fernando and then across to Playa del Inglés, where we conclude the day's MTB tour and can enjoy some well-deserved refreshments!
