The basics

Roque Nublo is said to be one of the world’s largest natural volcanic crags. Considered a sacred landmark by the island’s Indigenous people, Roque Nublo and the smaller Roque de la Rana are popular day trip destinations for hikers. The 3-mile (5-kilometer) trail leads you past dams and historic villages.

Roque Nublo features on ample sightseeing tours of Gran Canaria, which offer seamless transit and are ideal for first-time visitors. Other options include stargazing experiences, climbing trips, and even wedding photography-themed excursions.

Things to know before you go

*The hike to Roque Nublo is steep in places and therefore best suited to those with a good level of fitness. *Because the hiking trail is exposed, it recommended to take a hat, sunscreen, and water bottles, and to wear sturdy hiking shoes. *Note that the temperature at Roque Nublo is much cooler than at ground level; layers are recommended, particularly during the winter months. *You can spot local wildlife such as eagles and, on clear days, see Mt. Teide on Tenerife—the Canaries’ highest peak—in the distance.
