Trail running on the GR131 long distance route.

Trail running in Gran Canaria on the GR131 is a great experience. The GR131 is a long-distance hiking trail that crosses the entire island, offering beautiful scenery and challenging terrain for trail runners. The GR131 starts in the north of the island at Puerto de Las Nieves and runs all the way south to Maspalomas. The total length of the route is about 110 kilometers. Since trail running on the GR131 is a challenging activity, it is important to prepare well. Make sure you are in good shape and used to trail running on rough terrain. Bring plenty of water, snacks and navigation equipment as parts of the route can be remote. The weather in Gran Canaria can vary greatly, especially in the mountains. Be sure to check the weather forecast before trail running and dress accordingly. Please note that it can often be colder in the mountains and the weather can change quickly. Make sure you have the right trail running equipment, such as good trail running shoes with a firm grip, comfortable layers of clothing, a backpack to carry your gear and possibly trekking poles for extra stability during steep climbs and descents.

Do you want to prepare for a trail run competition and altitude training? Do you want to spend the night in unique small-scale accommodations selected by us? And do you want to train in wonderful temperatures? Then the Canary Islands are the ultimate islands for you. The whimsical Gran Canaria has it all. Perfect for your altitude training. You have 5 or 6 trail days.

1| Arrival in Las Palmas
Upon arrival at the airport, you will be transferred to your accommodation in Agaete. Agaete is a nice place where you can enjoy a delicious meal. A pleasant place with a church square and some bars. Close to Agaete is Puerto de Las Nieves. Las Nieves is very nice, with a rough coastline and many restaurants. The high cliffs at the harbor reminded us of Norway. Authentic restaurant to eat is: Restaurante Dedo De Dios.
The property does not have breakfast! You can have breakfast at the bakery next to your accommodation. There is a supermarket if you want to bring food and drinks for the next day. Do this because the first day is a tough day without encountering a restaurant or supermarket.

2| Departure Puerto de las Nieves to Artenara
The trail run path from Agaete to Artenara is a challenging adventure tour. The trail offers beautiful scenery and some of the most breathtaking parts of Gran Canaria. The trail path to Artena follows an approximately 14-mile track through the mountains. You follow a winding route through the valleys and mountain paths until you arrive in Artenara. The route from Agaete to Artenara falls under the spicy category.

The journey from Tunte to Ayagaures is another long journey with climbs and descents. From San Bartolomé you cross to get to the Barranco de Ayagaures. Ayagaures is a picturesque little town with a gigantic reservoir. A village where there is actually nothing to do. Besides a restaurant: La Cueva de Ayagaures.

Through the ravine, this path leads you through a beautiful landscape of green valleys, rock formations and narrow paths. The terrain can be challenging at times, so be careful and take your time enjoying the view. The path flattens out a bit and you pass dry riverbeds and palm groves.
