Roque Nublo Tours

The Roque Nublo is a unique rock formation on Gran Canaria that truly is a sight to behold. At 70 meters tall, the red basaltic monolith is the most dramatic formation on the island. Translated it means “cloudy rock” and after a short hike visitors are rewarded with panoramic views of surrounding nature. The rocky landscape is dotted with pine trees and shrubbery and drops off into cliffs.

The rock was formed by volcanic eruption on the island about 4.5 million years ago, and today is an icon of the island and is protected as a national monument. On a clear day it is possible to even see the Teide volcano in the distance. Often though, the rock will disappear into or appear out of dense fog and clouds (hence the name.) It is one of the tallest natural crags in the world, and is also a climbing destination. Trekking tours to the rock are available to those who preferred a guided hike.

Practical Info

The Roque Nublo is about a twenty minute drive from Las Palmas. You can get there via the GC-600 Road between Ayacata and Degollada de las Arenas. There is a free parking lot at the site, and you’ll need to walk a short distance to reach the rock. It is best to arrive earlier in the day if possible, as it tends to get crowded in the afternoons.
