Here's some info on the camp you're preparing for: Gran Canaria is the secret hotspot for winter cycling vacations. This volcanic island has towering cliffs and volcanic calderas that climb over 6500 feet above the beautiful white sandy beaches of our hotel resort. Smooth, winding roads lead to interesting villages and towns scattered throughout the island. The diversity of the natural landscapes adds to its charm with something new each day to explore, from sweeping pine forests to rugged volcanic mountains to coastal shorelines with turquoise water and sandy beaches. The island has a wealth of history, with interesting architecture dotted throughout the hillsides. Archaeological history also abounds, most famously with the ancient burial grounds of Tejeda, a sacred spot for the native islanders and one of our exciting ride destinations and photo spots.
