Canary Islands are a group of seven islands and six rocky islands situated 115 kms at the north of the Tropic of Cancer and in front of Sahara. It has similar characteristics than another atlantic arhcipelagos as Azores, Madeira and Cabo Verdes and they all together are called the Macaronesia.
There must be a thousand ways to enjoy the sea and on the Canaries you will find each and every one of them. Blue, crystal-clear and full of life, the waters around the islands remain at a temperature of between 18 and 23 degrees Celsius throughout the year so that they are perfect at any time.

Following the islands’ coastline, you will come across incredible landscapes rising out of the sea: volcanic bays with brilliant black volcanic sand, gigantic cliffs, mysterious rocks, peaceful beaches, endless expanses of dunes, grottos and natural swimming pools.
But many people simply prefer the pleasure of getting a tan beside the sea on any of the island’s magnificent beaches. Leisure activities for all ages are also very varied in the main bathing areas, where you can easily hire pedalos, floating tricycles or take a parascending flight, so as to get a better view of the coast from the sea.

Gran Canaria is certainly one of the most important European paradise isles. Its touristic slogan: "A continent in miniature" corresponds with its offer of lush forests, exotic fauna and flora, Sahara like dunes, mountains, volcanic craters. Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is the most dynamic capital city in the Canaries with incredible beautiful coastlines and spectacular beaches. This alife and modern city is plenty of history and it was the most important stop for ships of Christopher Columbus before the America's discovery.

The island, a real continent in miniature, will enthral you with its long golden beaches, its endless dunes of white sand and its stupendously green ravines; with picturesque villages and historical quarters that will transport you to former times; as well as cities of charm and excitement, where you will live every moment in just the way you always imagined.
Gran Canaria, with friendly people and deep-rooted traditions, is also an island that looks to the future in art and culture, with its auditoria, theatres and exhibition halls holding regular festivals and displaying creations by artists of international prestige.

In the northwest of Gran Canaria there is an small village called Agaete. Its landscapes are a perfect combination of contrast and loveliness. The small beach and the seaworthy port. The countryside with the fruitful and beautiful "Valle de Agaete".
Agaete is the perfect start point to get a hike through the oldest roads of the islands wich will permit us to visit the Roque Nublo or another important places in the countryside.
