3.5 hours
Includes tickets
Up to 7 people
Hosted in English, Spanish

What you'll do

We will meet at Plaza de Santa Ana Catedral in Vegueta (Las Palmas old town) to go to the Botanic Garden. First kilometers will take you through the historical valley (Barranco de Guiniguada) surrounded by local architecture. Next, the road will continue along the same valley but now through green banana plantations and some interesting, abandoned buildings. Slowly the road goes to a natural landscape and we will end in a beautiful Botanic Garden, where we can take the lunch, enjoy the views and make some unforgettable photos. After, just a small climb on a steep slope and a 10-minute bus ride back to the Old Town.
The total length of the track is approximately 9.5km and some 3 hours
Other things to note
At least minimal physical background is required. The hike is almost 10 km long, but easy.

I am a certified nurse. I have grown up in the north of the Europe, in the countryside and been exploring nature, spent hundreds of nights in tents and hiking as much as I remember myself. This is the one of my biggest passions.
I live on the island for more than 3 years and whenever I have the opportunity, I am exploring the wonderful nature and hiking paths in the island. Bringing the friends and our guests, and showing that nature here is full of miraculous surprises and beautiful views. My goal is to show people that here are not only tourist-filled beaches and streets with restaurants.

Liga was a great guide and we had a long nice walk. I wouldn’t have seen this area if not for this experience. I had a really nice day.

Es war eine toll geführte Wanderung, vom Anfang bis zum Ende. Liga ist sehr sympathisch, offen und durch sie, haben wir sehr viele interessante Sachen über die Insel kennengelernt. Man hat sich gefühlt, wie wandern mit einer Freundin. Herzlichen Dank für so einen schönen Tag, Liga!

Liga ist eine ganz besonders nette Frau, die ein großes botanisches Wissen hat und mit Charme erzählt. Sie hat uns immer genug Zeit für Fotostopps gegeben und war für jeden Spaß zu haben. Sie hat mit uns sogar in eine Bananen-Plantage reingeschaut. Die Wanderung ist viel zu schnell vergangen. Ich kann Liga wärmstens empfehlen - sie ist supertoll!!

This was a great way to see different parts of the city that I may not have seen on my own. I loved walking up through the ravine and to see how the agriculture portion of the city coexisted with the urban part of the city. The ending was great with the botanical garden and overall views.
