It was a really unique and special experience to hike by moonlight and to learn about the stars from an amazing viewpoint. Pablo is a great guide and made us feel very relaxed and also gave us some tasty local treats! We had a really magical time and would highly recommend this tour :)

Empfehlenswerter Ausflug, um Gran Canaria jenseits der Küste kennenzulernen. Verschiedene Stopps auf dem Weg zu den höchsten Punkten der Insel. Aussicht auf tiefe Täler und Schluchten. Auf dem Rückweg Aufenthalt in Teror, einem der hübschesten Orte auf der Insel.

Horses are allocated according to level of experience, which is reassuring for novices. The walk was very nice and with the sunset in the mountains at the end of the day. The instructors are at the top and the horses are very well cared for. To recommend

The experience was amazing! We couldn’t believe the amount of fish that were so close to the beach. The guide was really good too. 100% recommend!

A great experience. Anjellica was amazing and hey hospitality was amazing.
