Maspalomas: Ayagaures Hills E-Bike Tour and Tapas Tasting

1. Maspalomas: Ayagaures Hills E-Bike Tour and Tapas Tasting

After meeting your expert guide in Maspalomas, hop on your electric-powered e-bike for a tour of the city’s stunning environs. Bound for Ayagaures, a small village nestled in the hills, cross a lush valley adorned with palm trees, cacti, wildflowers, and other native Canarian flora. Stop by a wild goat farm on the way, learning about how the animal has become an icon for Gran Canaria. As you head toward the top of Ayagaures, explore the Maspalomas, Gran Canaria's immense golden sand dunes situated directly against the brilliant blue sea. Then, head to the Maspalomas Botanical Garden for a walking tour, where you'll learn to identify the main species of tropical plants that call the island home. Once you reach the top of Ayagaures mountain, stop for a half-hour break, during which you’ll sample traditional Canarian tapas in a bar built inside an ancient aboriginal cave (if option selected). Afterward, continue to the vast Ayagaures Dam, where you’ll stop at a picturesque bridge for the perfect view of the massive reservoir.  The return trip is all downhill, so get ready for a little bit of adventure. As you zip down the hill, you’ll pause at a camel farm to meet a few of the curious beasts, and learn of their significance in the culture of the Canary Islands and beyond. Later, you’ll return to the meeting point, having seen some of the most beautiful natural sights that Maspalomas has to offer.

We (1 adult and 5 teenagers) had a wonderful time on our rented bicycles. All cyclists were supplied with helmets, locks and a map and really helpful advice about places to visit. All really helpful and good to see the concerns about safety. The customer service was superb. We arrived a day early (too much in holiday mode!) but they still allowed us to take the bikes. On top of that when we were unlucky enough to get a puncture, they were incredibly responsive, answering my call immediately and the bike was fixed within 20mins. Gran Canaria was safe for cycling, even for inexperienced cyclists. Together with the good quality bikes and excellent customer service, I would highly recommend this activity. We also found it the best value for money activity on the island.

Great tour. The e-bikes are in good shape and everyone can take a tour of the mountains with these e-bikes. Lorenzo speaks good English and can tell you a lot about the nature of the Canaries. Hygiene is also very important. The restaurant where the tapas are served is a typical restaurant in a small cave with a beautiful view. However, it is more of a small snack with a short break than dinner. Still, it tasted great and we enjoyed the trip.

Nice relaxation, the power of the bike can be adjusted depending on the possibilities; very nice guide, tells about Gran Canaria, we saw the botanical garden on the way; very good and lots of Canarian tapas; nice time spent, the trip was very intimate

brand new bicycles (e-bikes) that rode well. Easily cycled 40 km without much effort. It does take some getting used to the powerful engine, when you turn it on, the bike takes off.

A little hard to find in the mall. Friendly and the bikes are good. Any time
