Spend a special day in Gran Canaria sharing activities with the island’s fauna.

Gran Canaria is an island where you can enjoy both mountain and sea activities, and if you come to visit the island with your family, we recommend you take advantage of the opportunity to explore and enjoy the fauna of the island.

Activities with camels in Gran Canaria

Just 15 minutes’ walk away from our hotels, you will find the Dunas Oasis Camel Safari, where you’ll be able to have a Far East like dream time riding a camel for half an hour. The tour goes through the dunes of Maspalomas and we assure you will be amazed by its desert landscapes and its relaxed atmosphere.  

And, if you’d like to experience an inland’s fun and exotic adventure, visit La Baranda Camel Safari Park, located in the Natural Reserve of Fataga, just 30 minutes’ drive from our hotels. You can admire the beautiful scenery of this area, which was declared a special interest landscape area, while you swing along the rhythm of the dromedaries.

The tour lasts about three hours, and includes stops at El Mirador de Degollada de las Yeguas, from which you’ll be able to admire the stunning views of Maspalomas and Fataga Valley; the homestead of Arteara, the largest aboriginal cemetery of the island; and a tropical oasis with hundreds of palm trees, among others. You can also interact with baby camels and other park animals like peacocks and goats. The service includes transportation to and from the hotel.

Dolphin spotting in Gran Canaria

If you prefer to enjoy the sea breeze and explore aquatic species, discover the wide variety of cetaceans living on the coast of the island. There are almost thirty of them, from playful dolphins to majestic whales. In order to see them in their own natural habitat, you can book a sailing trip around the coast of Gran Canaria.

Experts in the field have identified up to 34% of the global diversity of cetaceans in Canarian waters, which is considered a unique space for watching these animals. Mostly watched species are: bottle-nose dolphin, sperm whale, pilot whale, fin whale, etc. You can watch this abundance of species throughout the year, which proves how smart these animals are when choosing the quality and purity of the waters of the Atlantic Ocean.

Do not miss the opportunity to get to know these beautiful animals and get closer to Nature touring around Gran Canaria. Whatever your favourite option is, you will never regret this unique life experience. Which option is your favourite one?
