Chira - Mountain bike excursion on Gran Canaria

A thrilling ride in Natural Park pine forest, with stunning canyon views.

Once we arrive at our starting point, beneath the Candelilla Rock, we will embark on a thrilling adventure through the Ayacata Valley. This fabulous forest trail will provide a picturesque setting for us to warm up and get ready for the journey ahead. From there, we will connect with Chira Lake and travel on one of the most remote gravel roads on the island. This will be an opportunity to experience outstanding views into deep, rocky valleys, and sometimes, if we're lucky, we'll catch glimpses of Tenerife Island on the horizon.

As we continue on this remote gravel road, we will encounter breathtaking ocean panoramas that will leave us spellbound. The last tarmac road transfer on the edge of Soria valley will be an exciting conclusion to this epic journey. It will provide us with a chance to take in the stunning views of the ocean as we make our way back to civilization.
