Pico de Las Nieves - The highest viewpoint in Gran Canaria


If you want to experience the essence of the place and get carried away by the atmosphere, there is nothing better than to climb to the highest point of the island. This Gran Canaria viewpoint is located on the highest mountain of the island, Pico de Las Nieves, in the very centre of the island, at 1,949 metres.

It offers a view over a large part of the island and the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, with its endless deep ravines and sharp cliffs covered with vegetation and crowned by volcanic peaks of curious shapes.


Sunset over a sea of clouds


It's worth taking a car or bus to the top of Las Nieves for this show. At the car park you will find a semicircle of stones facing west.

It's a simple vantage point with no obstructions to obscure your view of the beautiful sunset. Unlike other places, Las Nieves has the best views even on cloudy days when you can see Tenerife and Gran Canaria as if floating above a sea of clouds.


Theme park: discovering the original life of the Canary Islands


In the south of Gran Canaria, set in the landscape of the Fataga Gorge, right in the Parque Natural de Ayagaures, is the Mundo Aborigen theme park, dedicated to the history and culture of the Canary Islands. Here, visitors will discover what life was like for the archipelago's first inhabitants by recreating scenes of everyday life with hundreds of life-size figures.


Open-air museum in the stunning Gran Canaria area


The imposing appearance of the Fataga Gorge is the perfect setting for this open-air museum, where you will discover the secrets of the indigenous culture while enjoying the wonderful weather and stunning views. Little ones will have fun playing in the open air with the dogs, pigs and goats of Mundo Aborigen, while adults will discover what life was like in the Canary Islands more than 2,000 years ago on an imaginary journey through time.
