Looking for long-term Gran Canaria weather forecast?

Well, let’s be honest. On the one hand, weather forecasting models are not so precise and reliable in the long run, so it doesn’t make much sense to try to figure out what the weather will be like in the holiday week you’ll have here in 2 or 3 months …

On the other hand, we can tell you that, usually, in Gran Canaria it is (almost) always good weather!

For this reason, if you live at high latitudes in Europe, if it’s always bad weather in your area, with rain, snow and gray skies … you can be sure that here you will find beautiful weather, pleasant temperatures and warm sea water even during winter!

That’s why our Gran Canaria weather forecasts are useful when you’re already here. And if you want to give you a bike ride, in one of Europe’s most beautiful and appreciated scenarios for mountain biking … well, you’re in the right place!

In the pictures below you can see some examples of our mountain bike tours. Do you want to ride with us? Contact us using the form at the bottom of this page and ask for a mtb tour that best suit your needs!
