Gran Canaria: Off-Road Jeep Safari With Lunch
- Small group
- Pickup available
- Duration: 6 hours
Spend an unforgettable day discovering Gran Canaria’s interior on a 4-whell drive safari that takes you along dirt paths and rural roads. You’ll travel by fully-equipped jeep with a highly skilled driver and guide, who knows every inch of the route. On this 7-hour tour, you’ll head to the very heart of the island and experience why Gran Canaria is referred to as a miniature continent. The tour offers you plenty of opportunities to take photos and also a stop for lunch to enjoy typical Canarian specialties. You’ll feel like a desert scout or even like Lawrence of Arabia, as you ride a gentle camel through the 1000 Palm Tree Valley. You don’t need to ride on the hump, by the way, as the camels are fitted with comfortable 2-seater saddles!
Pleasant trip, more info about the areas we were visiting would have been a nice choice (eg. S. Lucia church and the village...). The driver Gabri was fun (we were trying to understand his Spanish, answering in Italian, he was doing the opposite and the experiment was quite successful!)

Off-road jeep safari", it sounds fun, right? It's what we thought too when we booked this excursion and it's why we ended up on Señor José's ( a true gentleman by the way) authentic Landrover Defender's back seats. Although you stay in the southern part of the island, the route up the main crater is just amazing. Eating dust (yes, better not dress too fancy) while enjoying the views on some Gran Canarian canyon. It's very nice. At the end there's the possibility to do a short camel ride but we decided to pass on this one (we're not huge fans of using animals for commercial purposes... a personal opinion though). Overall, a very enjoyable and relaxing excursion.
Thanks to God for some reason decided to take this tour instead of driving ourselves, with small engined car not sure if it wouldn’t be possible to get to the places we got with the jeep and absolutely no hassle as you don’t have to drive those narrow roads, our guide Jose was brilliant, plenty of stops for pictures and all. Day spent better then expected! By the way, Jose photography skills on top, should work for Vogue
Great trip into the mountains with Land Rover Safari vehicles. Dirt track roads, hairpin bends with abyssal drops over the edge all add to make this a worthwhile trip. Go for the included lunch to get genuine Gran Canarian food. Highly recommended!
Definitely take something to put on. It was a lot of fun to drive with Laura. But after that I got a total cold. Because you sweat and the jeeps are open.
At the top I highly recommend Marina is top is the drivers also very pleasant we had a great day
