Unforgettable Climbing Adventures

Come experience this increasingly popular sport in one of the top destinations in the world! Book rock climbing in Gran Canaria today.


A Climber's Paradise

The terrain of the Canary Islands is the product of volcanic eruptions over millions of years. Gran Canaria’s oldest rocks are ideal for climbing — solid and with plenty of traction. The natural landscapes are a climber’s paradise, with cracks, chimneys, wedges, overhangs, and more for climbers to enjoy.

If this is your first foray into this vertical sport, try a via ferrata adventure, a rugged hike using staples, steps, and chains to help you climb up to 140 meters in height. This is a great activity for avid hikers who are ready to turn up the adrenaline. You’re sure to fall in love with the exhilarating heights!

Ready for even more adventure? Check out a canyoning excursion in Barranco de los Cernícalos. Descend the canyon in the most exciting way possible as you walk, jump, swim, abseil, and have a blast. If you want to explore the marine cliffs, don’t miss a coasteering excursion on the west side of the island. Jump, zipline, climb, rapel, then get in the water to swim and explore the sea caves.

Enough talk — it’s time to get in on the action! Book a Canary Islands climbing trip online now.
