Gran Canaria – A Road Trip

A spectacular view from El Roque Nublo

The island of Gran Canaria is commonly associated with crowded beaches, towering hotels and frantic holiday makers, but there is a different side to it as well
For those of us seeking an alternative experience, the interior of the island offers a serene beauty, some spectacular panoramic views and remnants of the original “Islas Canarias”

The trip took us around the island – a trip that can easily be done in a day. Starting in Puerto de Mogan the first half was through the vast tourist areas developed on the western and southern parts. Once you reach the small town of Teror (with a single “r”) the whole sceenery changes completely.
