What the experience includes
This unique experience is ideal for getting to know the inland roads and trails of Gran Canaria. We will first travel along small secondary roads before starting our off-road adventure on tracks that are only accessible with all-terrain vehicles.
On this jeep excursion through the heart of the island you will come to understand why Gran Canaria is known as a ‘miniature continent’. You will travel in comfort and style in a jeep driven by one of our professional and highly experienced drivers.
We begin our tour on the coast road to Arguineguín, and from there wend our way up a secondary road into ravines and valleys. Here you will be struck by the contrast between the south and the middle region of the island, where the vegetation becomes increasingly lush.
We pass close to Cercado del Espino, where you will see tropical plantations, and make our way to Soria, a small estate that lends its name to the largest reservoir on the Canary Islands. Here you will have time to walk around and have breakfast if you wish (not included in the price).
Travelling through impressive landscapes of reservoirs, forests and volcanic landforms, we will reach the Las Niñas dam, where you will be hopefully able to swim, weather and water conditions permitting.
We will then continue along hidden tracks to San Bartolome de Tirajana, where we will stop for lunch.
The return journey is truly spectacular and takes us along dusty tracks through the Fataga ravine to the stunning beach of Playa del Inglés.
Gran Canaria is certainly a fascinating ‘miniature continent’ that can be experienced in a single day of driving and adventure.

Stop at: Arguineguín
Arguineguín, in the south of Gran Canaria, is an enchanting coastal town with a fishing port that has become one of the main tourist attractions on the island. It has, nevertheless, managed to keep all the character and charm of a traditional fishing village. It is the most important town in the municipality of Mogán , a corner of Gran Canaria with plunging cliffs and a myriad of charming beaches in the ravines between them.
Stop at: Soria
Construction work on the largest dam in Gran Canaria began in 1962. Designed by Francisco Pérez Cerdá and Luis Fedriani Isern, the project was planned for the Arguineguin ravine, where they could take advantage of the natural shape of the gorge that becomes significantly narrower at a point. The rocky sides of the gorge at this point were also particularly high, providing the perfect place a tall, narrow dam. The cliffs can be said to form part of the dam themselves.
Stop at: Las Niñas Dam
Located in Llanos de la Yerbahuerto and around 900 m high, this dam stands in a repopulated open pine forest with the Las Niñas Caves at its edges. Located in Nublo Rural Park, close to the Inagua y Pajonales Nature Reserve, it is 90 minutes and 55 km from the capital, and is one of the most popular and traditional recreation and camping areas on the island.
