Gran Canaria Trek

Photo of the accommodation

We have a choice in hotels on 4 of the 7 nights, you can choose between a standard trek hotel or upgrade to a 4* category hotel on these nights. The standard hotels are all comfortable, family run establishments. They vary in grading and have been chosen for their friendliness as much as their comfort and location. All rooms will be with private bathroom and WC. Dinner and breakfast often include local dishes which are provided every day. We will advise on the best place to obtain a picnic.

We have personally stayed in or visited all of our accommodations. They have all been selected for their great locations, friendly atmosphere and traditional hospitality, as well as the warm welcome they offer to walkers. Below is a summary of our usual accommodations*.
