Kestrel Canyon


Our tour starts in the remote north-east of Gran Canaria.
This volcanic themed location has specific minerals found in the lava, which support rare forms of vegetation. A small stream flows down the valley all year around and in the rainy season reforms the landscape and sustains the jungle-like vegetation with the humidity and moisture it needs.

One of the highlights is, of course, the possibility to spot a lot of Kestrels, such as Hawks or Buzzards. This is due to the fact that they have a lot of “food” in that valley, which translates into small rabbits and, their main course, lizards.

When we reach our picnic spot, if you’re not too hungry and are able to share a tiny piece of your sandwich with them, you’ll even be able to feed the lizards by hand!

The tour ends with a visit to one of the most beautiful towns in Gran Canaria, which shows the typical architecture and flare of the hiking area, where you’ll be able to explore some treasures and typical products of the area, such as the famous bronze statues and buildings of colonial times.

A perfect guided hike through the real east of Gran Canaria.
