GREEN NIRVANA TRAIL

1 DAY MTB TOUR

The Green Nirvana Trail is our brand new challenge for the lovers of Gran Canaria Enduro rides. A long day of bike from from the top of the island (2000 meters of altitude) to the villages behind Las Palmas, just above the ocean in the north of Gran Canaria.
To create this fun new ride we have connected some of the most beautiful enduro mtb trails in a route that crosses very different environments. The purpose is to get the most fun while the trails flow more and more along the green side of the island as you go downhill. Are you looking for the Nirvana of enduro? Here you found it.

DESCRIPTION

We knew that Gran Canaria Enduro lovers were looking for something new. So we have created this new ride for them! Let’s start from Pico de Las Nieves at 2000 meters above sea level, on one of the most famous single tracks on the island. Rock gardens, flow in the pine forests and trails overlooking the most photographed landscape accompany us in the first segment. Not bad as an appetizer of the day!

Gran Canaria Enduro is a special concept for us: we don’t want pain in the ass! So after a short climb, from the the following segment on we decided to ride the single tracks less frequented by tourists. Here begins the local area. Rocky, technical sections alternate with fast trails to ride at full throttle. A whole load of fun!

After a small transfer on asphalt we enter into the “flow area”. We have fun along a red soil trail flowing through low vegetation and eucalyptus trees. It takes an expert guide to connect the different single tracks prepared by the local bikers (a big thank you to them!).

Another short transfer lead us to a very fast and flow segment. Here the slope pushes us to increase the pace as we swallow dozens of berms at high speed. The fun stays at the top!

Now we enter a small, hidden bike park built by the locals kids. A hidden gem that our guide gives us to close this segment having fun on jumps and berms.

After a gorgeous grove of local plants and trees followed by the last transfer of the day, we finally face the last playground of this long ride: probably the most popular area for local bikers, characterized by a vast network of fun tracks. Our guide will expertly connect the most exciting lines of this vast network for us.

The final rocky downhill takes us directly to the bike shuttle awaiting for us. But before returning to the South we’ll stop for a short refreshment at the restaurant, which is the end point of this fantastic mountain bike tour in Gran Canaria.
