Info & Booking
The perfect introduction to mountain biking in Gran Canaria. We cycle inland, along a quiet valley road and past traditional farms, until we reach the reservoir of Ayagaures. After crossing the dam, a solid dirt road leads to the scenic Eagle Pass. Next, we cross the Valley of Vicentes where rocky terrain and perfect silence await us. But the best is still to come: The descent of the “Grand Canyon” - a perfect way to finish this mountainbike tour in style and high on adrenalin.

We start the MTB tour at 1100m above sea level in the North of the island and ride through a forest of fragrant eucalyptus trees towards Firgas. On reaching the scenic mountain village, we stop for lunch and get ready for the next part of the tour. The climb ahead is tough and will put your legs to the test. But the view from the top is well worth the effort. And the best, of course, is to come: a freewheeling descent with berms and drops, until we reach El Picacho. Next, it’s time to focus and show off your skills! We will ride along narrow rocky trails all the way to the historical centre of Arucas.

The Tirajana Crater is an enormous volcanic crater, and our playground for the day! After an easy start in the area of Risco Blanco where we enjoy great panoramic views, a rocky singletrail will lead us to Santa Lucia. From there we continue on the more challenging Ansite trail to La Fortaleza, an ancient cave settlement of the Guanche people. Time for lunch, in front of the cave with more mind-blowing views to admire! You will need your strength for the second part of the ride! First, we ride over the dry riverbed on the bottom of the crater, then along the coastline back to our bike shop in Playa del Inglés.

If you love the thrill of downhill MTB and want to discover the most spectacular views of Gran Canaria, this is the mountainbike tour for you! It starts at Pico de las Nieves and takes us through an ancient forest of majestic pine trees. All is still and quiet, the only sound is the soft crunch of our tyres on the pine needles...Sch! Next up, a long and technical offroad descent, that demands full concentration before we stop for lunch in Valsequillo. From there we head right into the rock gardens of Valley of San Miguel and the flow trail of Tara. Then it is time to relax and enjoy the last section before the shoreline finish.

Info & Booking
This mountain bike tour starts in the centre of the island, at 1200m. Rocky trails lead up a steep climb to Cruz Grande, but the impressive views offer a pleasant distraction from the effort. As we ride through the heart of the island, we take in twisty trails, unspoilt scenery, and spectacular views. After a few more rock gardens and flow trails, we reach the picturesque village of Fataga, where we stop for a well-earned lunch break. Fuel up, because after lunch awaits another challenging climb towards Degollada las Yeguas, the most fabulous viewpoint in the South! From there on, it is all smiles again as we descend on a single trail to Maspalomas and back to civilization.
 

Road biking on Gran Canaria:
The island has quiet mountain roads with smooth asphalt, spectacular scenery, high peaks, deep valleys, long climbs and fast descents - equally suited for pros, amateurs and hobby riders. Eternal summer makes riding ideal all year. The classic climbs like "Pico de las Nieves", "Serenity-Tauropass" and "Valley of the Tears" are both challenging and rewarding experiences for all cyclist alike. More here.


You can switch the levels by clicking the level drop-down menu on the tour overview tab: 

Cappucino Roadbike GC
Cappucino Roadbike

Average daily mileage: 41-67 km

Daily elevation: 560m up to 1.330m

Average speed: 18-24 km/h

Cappuccino road tours offer a new experience for those who want to enjoy a ride during their holidays. We will explore the Canarian scenery, in the company of like-minded people. The pace is slow, offering us enough time to enjoy the views and take photos.

Hobby Roadbike GC
Hobby Roadbike

Average daily mileage: 58-96km

Daily elevation: 930m up to 2.610m

Average speed: 20-25 km/h

Hobby bicycle tours are for riders used to being in the saddle for at least 2 hours. Having experience with cycling in a group is recommended. As we venture further into the heart of the island, we'll face several climbs. The pace will be moderate but steady. Fear not, we will take breaks for refuelling and taking photos.

Sport Roadbike GC
Sport Roadbike

Average daily mileage: 52-96 km

Daily elevation: 930m up to 2.610m

Average speed: 22-27 km/h

Sport road cycling tours are for the experienced rider, the one who is used to long hours in the saddle, riding in a group, and that can hold a faster and more consistent pace on climbs. We will occasionally stop to take in the views or fill our bottles. The mid-ride lunch break is a certainty.

Only for experienced mountain bikers. Variable and difficult terrain conditions. Not suitable for beginners!
Advanced MTB riding skills are necessary for all tours from level 3. 

The level description refers to the point scale you can find on each MTB tour box:

CHOOSE YOUR LEVEL

Free Motion offers mountain bike tours with two levels - Intermediate and Advanced.

To make sure you have the best possible experience on tour with us, it's essential that you choose a level that fits your abilities. Take into consideration that you're going to ride on a volcanic, rocky island. The surface is most likely a bit rougher than what you are used to when cycling in Middle- and Northern Europe.

You are on holiday! 

To make sure you have a fun experience all throughout the tour, please be honest with yourself when choosing tour level. With enough energy, you will be able to enjoy the ride fully, stay safe and get back with a smile on your face. 

If you're not sure which level to choose, it's recommended to book the lower level. The first few kilometers on each tour, both levels ride together. When we split the group, there is still the possibility to down- or upgrade the pre-booked level. Our guides are there to suggest the best option for you and to ensure "The Perfect Ride!"
