The Grand Canyon Tour is one of the great classic Gran Canaria mountain bike tours. It is the ideal backcountry mtb ride to become familiar with the unique riding style and the incredible environment and landscapes of the island. Enjoy the wide, fast tracks that wind along of a series of rocky canyons! You can interpret this excursion both in XC race mode, performing speed and rhythm, with an exciting final downhill to ride at full speed. Or on the contrary live it in a more exploratory way, reassured by the easy tracks and enjoying the truly unusual landscapes that cannot be found elsewhere. A joy for families.

We start this amazing mountain bike tour in Gran Canaria pedaling up a beautiful valley, with a very gentle and never challenging slope, until we reach an important complex of dams in the backcountry, a precious reserve of water for the dry environment of the South. At around 300 meter of altitude we access the fire road that climbs, with gentle gradient, on the left side of the canyon. The view is spectacular and, thanks to the well rolling surface and the slight slope, we can fully enjoy it. The track is easy to ride and lets us gain altitude with little effort. The higher we go, the more our view can range between the canyons of southern Gran Canaria, giving us a truly incredible and unusual view.

Once reached a scenic balcony and after the ritual shots and selfies, we throw into an easy and fast downhill, that leads us into the following canyon. Once at the bottom, we will climb up the other side, on a little rougher surface, but always easily rolling. Once at the top we tackle a fast and fun downhill, and then climb uphill again to a new panoramic view point, that opens on the main Canyon. The view is really impressive and invites us to get off the bike and take a some pictures.

Now we ride downhill on a bit more challenging surface, until we connect to a long, funny downhill. Here the most skilled bikers can ride full throttle and reach remarkable speed, enjoying the berms that help to maintain speed and control of the bike. A short pedal strokes lead us to the last downhill on a nice red soil track that will surely tear out a few screams of excitement. In short we reach the bottom of the main canyon, which leads us behind the city of Maspalomas.
