Gran Canaria High Altitude Weeks

With the warm temperatures year round a great opportunity to escape for some warm weather riding as winter approaches and once again in the spring ahead of the summer season.

Gran Canaria offers some excellent climbing with long climbs of varying gradients, spectacular scenery and quiet roads. The island is used by several pro teams with some riders having property here to benefit from the terrain and weather.

The center of the Island reaches just under 2000 meters in altitude and there are many diverse routes and climbs that provide a challenge equal to those here in the Alps (sometimes greater!). During our weeks in Gran Canaria we have found continual investment in both the roads and facilities to make this a great destination for riding.

Daytime temperatures are usually around the mid 20’s during winter months with low levels of precipitation making it just perfect for climbing in full summer kit.
