One of the funniest and newest mtb Enduro routes of Gran Canaria. A long flow trail alternating fast soil sections with challenging rock gardens into the heart of the Fataga Valley. Exciting ending along Yegua Trail, a very fun single track builded by local riders, flowing among native bushes and cactus, with jumps and berms, where we held a photo shooting with Haibike pro riders Sam Pilgrim, Yannick Granieri and Tom Cardy. Guaranteed fun.

This new mountain bike tour in Gran Canaria originates from the idea of connecting some of the most interesting and funny trails in the south of the island. We start at an altitude of 1500 meters, on a trail surmounted by massive rock walls, which remind us of the volcanic nature of the island.
After a short but challenging uphill, we connect to a technical and funny trail, which leads us into the valley of Fataga. The surrounding landscape is impressive.
We now roll on a very lovely and funny flow section, with gentle ups and downs. From a crest that dominate the valley of Fataga, we can see the ocean far at the horizon. A fun track, which alternates fast sections on red soil with technical, stony stretches make us dance on a challenging ground for several minutes, while around us the vegetation imperceptibly changes, until we find ourselves immersed in a singular forest of palm and bamboo. We are now into the village of Fataga, where we stop at a typical restaurant, to recover the energies and share the feelings of this beautiful tour.
On easy trails we reach the bottom of the canyon of Fataga. Here, a short climb on tarmac will rewarded us with the funny Yegua trail, a new single track builded by the locals riders. It is easy to be conquered by this fast track, which flows with increasing rhythm until we reach a section with nice jumps and berms. A final fast flowing section lead us gently into the city. What better way to end a fun mountain bike tour?
Fataga SuperMountain ends on the promenade of Meloneras, just around the corner of the sand dunes of Maspalomas, where we can enjoy an ice cream or a cold beer in front of the ocean.
Tour starts: 10.00 am from Maspalomas area (1 hour driving to reach the summit of the mountain at 1500 meters a.s.l.).
Tour ends: around 4:00 pm in Meloneras promenade.
