The Mars Atlantico Discovery - Mountain bike excursion on Gran Canaria

Endless ocean views, up and down through the rocky ravines! Light lunch included.

Today’s MTB tour starts right after check-in at the Free Motion Bike shop in Playa del Inglés. We ride westward, towards the outskirts of town and into the hilly areas between Maspalomas and the town of Arguineguín. Here, we follow the undulating terrain, negotiating the many peaks and valleys. The route goes on narrow broken dirt roads and at times on flowy singletrack.

We then descend into the oceanside village of El Pajar and follow the coastline for a couple of kilometres into Arguineguín for a short lunchbreak to restore our energy levels. Making our way back to the starting point we take on a few challenging climbs and some fast-paced descents en route to Maspalomas, with the Atlantic Ocean as the backdrop for the vast majority of the way. We eventually roll into Playa del Inglés and conclude the day’s MTB activities with some well-deserved refreshments!

TECHNICAL DIFFICULTY (TD): Most of the ride is TD1, with a few short TD2 sections. (See the Technical Difficulty scale for details.)
FITNESS LEVEL (FL): A High-FL is required for this MTB tour. The ride has many climbs, many of them are relatively long and/or steep. (See the Fitness Level scale for details.)
