Welcome on Gran Canaria Mountain Bike Tours

We are specialized in mtb tours & customized tours with bike shuttle

Gran Canaria has unique trails and breathtaking landscapes that make it one of the best European destinations for mountain biking, especially during winter. 

What we love most? Connect the mountains trails with the ocean in the same ride. Our most requested tours start from the top of our silent mountains, at around 2000 meters of altitude, to end along the crystal sea of the South. Just behind the ocean in fact, there is great network of trails, surrounded by typical pine forests, where you can enjoy a whole day of superb mountain biking.

The nice and unique climate for outdoor activities makes Gran Canaria a cult destination for mountain bikers from all over the world. World-class Mountain bikers such as Cedric Gracia, Guido Tschugg, Danny McAskill, Sam Pilgrim, Yannick Granieri, Tom CardyJordi Bago, love to ride and train here, thanks to the variety of trails and unbeatable weather.

Customize your Mtb tour according to your tastes and skills

We are focused on providing a top notch mountain bike experience.

Our distinctive strengths are flexibility and the ability to customize mountain bike tours to better suit the technical skills and tastes of the bikers we accompany.

The number of bikers we accept is therefore very limited, so as to ensure the homogeneity of the participants and riding fluidity. Furthermore you can also create you own private group.

The exact opposite of the other mass mtb tour services, where:

  • groups easily exceed 20 participants
  • there is no selection of technical skills and physical ability
  • mtb tours are predetermined in each day, with no possibility of choice.

Canary mountain bike riding style

The typical riding style of Gran Canaria is said “volcanic”. It’s about natural mountain tracks, partly rocky and partly soil trails. The riding style is mainly technical. Positive altitude gaps can be limited using the bike shuttle, which help us to save some energies to fully enjoy the endless downhill to the ocean.

This is the ideal spot for bikers that love to bomb technical trails, rock gardens and active riding. The best mountain bike here is a strong all mountain with good travel. An enduro mtb is perfect.

If you’ve never raided Gran Canaria before, forget everything you’ve done and seen until now. Everything is different here. Trails, environment, landscapes, atmosphere, weather conditions.

Get ready to go from the 1950 meters of Pico de la Nieves, the highest peak of the island, to the dunes of Maspalomas, the most characteristic beach of the island, famous all over the world. Genuine dunes of the Sahara desert all along the sea, a little paradise that you can reach after a flow of over 40 km of exciting downhill and breathtaking views…

Is it enough exciting for you?

Watch out this video and get an idea of what awaits you:

Due to the morphological characteristics of Gran Canaria, the typical Mtb tour mode can be summarized as follows:

long and comfortable ascent with the Bike Shuttle to the starting point of the trail in the mountains -> long exciting downhill flowing to the ocean.

Depending on the tour, some pedaled sections may be expected, but in general most part of the tour is a nice downhill to the sea.

We also offer fully pedaled loop tours, which anyhow involve moving by Bike Shuttle from the touristic area of the South to the trails area.

The starting point of the tours is always located in the central and highest area of the island, between 1500 meters and 2000 meters of altitude of Pico de Las Nieves, the summit of the island.

The length of the tours ranges between 30 to 55 km, with a negative vertical drop around 2000 meters or more.

A friendly and thoughtful MTB guide

I spent a week of vacation in Gran Canaria with Fabio, a friendly and thoughtful MTB guide to my needs. I would say cuddled before the trail but, when it was time to get serious, he was there and we made a lot of nice rides.

It has been amazing and funny to ride whit Fabio: he makes you know the island in all its wholeness. What else can I tell? He is also cheap and has a really convenient shuttle service. Nice job man!

An excellent MTB tour guide

Searching on the internet in the UK we found Gran Canaria Mountain Bike Tours and contacted Fabio, that suggested a fantastic route suitable for our skill and fitness levels. Throughout the booking process Fabio’s communication was always timely and good quality.

We enjoyed a fantastic day with Fabio, who was an excellent MTB tour guide. His English was good, he rode at a pace that matched our skill levels and the organization and arrangements were all first class. I can fully recommend him.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of bicycle is recommended for riding in Gran Canaria?

The ideal bike to have fun in Gran Canaria is an enduro bike. You can also enjoy an E-mtb, as those we rent. The important thing is that it is a fairly recent bike with reliable and functional components. DH bikes are not recommended, because there are also challenging climbs to be tackled.

Can I rent a bike in Gran Canaria?

Yes of course! You can rent mountain bikes on site. Our technical rental partner has different types of bicycles available, with components of a fairly high level. We strongly recommend you to give a try at our brand new E-mtb: super funny bikes that our guests love very much!

Can I use an e-mtb in Gran Canaria?

Sure. E-mountain bikes are the best choice to join us!
Please be aware that e-MTBs currently can not travel on airplanes due to battery restrictions. Therefore, if you want to use an e-mtb you can rent it from us.

Do I need a special equipment to ride mtb in Gran Canaria?

Yes, you must equip yourself to tackle challenging trails.

HELMET: it is mandatory. We recommend the enduro full-face helmet with detachable chin-guard for the most technical and demanding tours.

KNEEPADS: highly recommended. Ideal are enduro models, which allow you to pedal well and give a decent protection.

ELBOW: recommended for the most technical and demanding tours. Better the soft enduro models, because in case you want to remove them, they do not clutter much in the backpack.

ARMOUR AND BACK PROTECTOR: there are no mandatory indications for these protections. In theory, the more protected and the better. However, consider that the weight of an armour and his thermal effect when pedaling can greatly reduce comfort and increase tiredness.

BACKPACK: it is mandatory. In fact, it is necessary to bring a good supply of water, along with a wind/rain-proof jacket, at least one spare air tube suitable for your bicycle, energy bars and a minitool for emergency repairs.

Do I need special clothing to ride mtb in Gran Canaria?

Mountain bike clothing is recommended. In particular, it is advisable to wear an intimate padded boxer whit protective padding in the seat area, to avoid to get bored in the perineum area. A wind/rain-proof jacket jacket is also needed, because the weather can change very quickly, specially on the top of the island.

How long do Gran Canaria mtb tours last?

The tours last from 4 to 6 hours on average. This is however a general indication, as it depends on the participants’ fitness and skills.

Do I have to be fit to ride mtb tours in Gran Canaria?

Yes, to take part in our mountain bike tours you should have a good fitness and good technical skills. On a case by case basis it is however possible to evaluate and organize shortened and / or suitable tours even for not to much trained people.

I am a beginner, can I participate in a mtb tour in Gran Canaria?

Our mountain bike tours in Gran Canaria are selected for bikers with a discrete skill and technical background. By chance, however, it is possible to evaluate and organize less demanding tours, suitable even for beginners.

Is there a break at restaurants / lodges to eat?

In general, food autonomy is necessary to participate in the tours. It is possible that we will pass by restaurants / bars, but their opening is not guaranteed, nor is it possible to program the stop depending on the food requirements of the participants. For this reason, a packed lunch is usually planned, so plan to bring at least a few energy bars with you.
