Route of sky and volcanos
“The petrified storm”: this is how the writer Miguel de Unamuno defined the volcanic caldera of the Gran Canarian top.
An overwhelming landscape is what you will find when you discover the highest part of the island. To really know Gran Canaria you have to go to the town of Tejeda and walk through all its main natural monuments. You will be surprised by the greatness of the landscape and you will be able to see the contrast between light skies and ravines, pine groves, lava outflows and extraordinary geological formations.
It is essential that you visit the most famous rock monoliths of the island, such as the Roque Nublo, the Roque Bentaiga and some less famous ones like the Palmé.
This is a zone of routes and paths to enjoy plain and wild nature in its natural protected space, rich in flora and fauna.
From the different signposted viewpoints, you can observe other symbols of the Canary Islands: the Teide volcano, on the island of Tenerife, 3,718 m high. In the coldest time of year it is covered with snow.
In the Cruz de Tejeda or in the town there is a good offer of terraces to make a stop in the journey.
