Guided Walks

Guided Walks for Groups

My wife Eileen and I no longer guide walks ourselves, mainly due to the amount of time needed in keeping these walking guides up to date.

Gran Canaria is a safe place to trek, there are no dangerous predators. You naturally pick up much more local information etc. especially with a resident English speaking guide. We would be happy to offer advice to anyone considering a hiking holiday on our beautiful island, whether it be just for themselves or a walking club etc.

If you require a local English speaking walking guide please contact us, or contact one of the following guides or companies.

  • Free Motion - Bike and Outdoor Center in Playa del Ingles.
  • Discovery Gran Canaria – based in Maspalomas
  • Walk In Gran Canaria – based in Las Palmas in the north of Gran Canaria.
  • Jose – Jose is from Belgium and is based in Maspalomas. He is licensed to do tours by cars also for small groups. He also keeps the Discovery maps in stock. Jose is contactable via Whatsapp: (0034) 609 549 324

There are some clubs and organisations that run guided walks on a regular basis.

Most town halls organise guided walks once per month, the tourist information offices should be able to provide you with more details.

From England there are companies that offer guided walks in Gran Canaria:

Don't Leave Gran Canaria Without Seeing It..

THE definitive Guide for hikers and explorers.. by Rambling Roger, resident in Gran Canaria

Volume 1: The Shorter Options
This guide is intended more for the casual hiker ( who wants a half day walk ) and visitors who want to discover the real heart of Gran Canaria by car or on foot.

Volume 2: The Longer Options
This second guide is for the serious hiker who wants a full day trek.

Volume 1 'The Shorter Options' Guide has approx. 20 circular and 15 routes from A to B with the local bus times included, there are also over 30 there-and-back walks, all of these walks are designed to be half day hikes.
This Guide also includes lots of information of what to see and do in the many rural villages and towns, with suggestions of where to enjoy local specialities.

Volume 2 'The Longer Options' Guide has approx. 20 circular and 5 routes from A to B with local bus times included, these walks are full day walks and are designed for the serious hiker. All walks have full GPS information included.
I am aware that there are already various hiking books in English about walking on Gran Canaria, but none are written by a local resident with years of experience of the hiking routes on this island.

Both Rambling Roger's Guides are regularly updated and available in printed or PDF version.
