Gran Canaria

Off the beaten path trip to Gran Canaria. Which places are a must do?

This will be a 5 day trip and I'm going b&b style.  I want to be far from the touristic crowds.  I will hire a car.

Hi Anke, I'm also heading to Gran Canaria on a solo trip (next week), so am watching the answers with interest!

I'm staying in Tejeda for a few days for walking, as the Parque Natural Tamadaba has been recommended to me. After that I'm having a few days in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and am planning on avoiding the resorts in the south if at all possible! Sorry that's not a very comprehensive answer, but looking forward to seeing more responses :)

Have a fantastic trip,

You could check out a rum factory! The Destilerías Arehucas factory tour is the only one I've been, but it was great! You might also want to check out the banana plantations, which I think are very close to Arucas (which is a lovely, vibrant little town).

No place on Carrizal is more away from tourists then Playa Gui Gui. It can only be reached by boat or a VERY exhausting walk. There are no shops or toilets, so make sure to take at least 2 litres of water with you.

I have writte abot it on my travel blog, if you are interested:
