Day 1: Welcome Reception (Climbing Support Service)
We will pick up the travelers at the airport. There we will hand over the rental car and guide the travelers to the lodge in Artenara.
After a welcome reception to discuss on the week’s plan, we will review the mountaineering level of the group and plan each day’s schedule.
We will recommend some paths near the village for an evening walk.
Day 2: Sport climbing in Tamadaba
Located in Gran Canaria’s northeast, Tamadaba extends more than 8000 hectares. This pine grove is one of the richest biological and landscape enclaves in the island.In this impressive location surrounded by rocks and pines, live numerous species of flora and fauna, many of which are exclusively endemic. Tamadaba is an ideal location to enjoy nature.
Our guide will pick up the group around 9:00 a.m. and no more than 20 minutes later the group will already be climbing in this marvelous location.
After a day spent climbing, the group will head back to the lodge in Artenara to relax, enjoying marvelous views and resting for the next day.
There are a number of restaurants close by where you will be able to eat local cuisine.
Day 3: Sport climbing in Tamadaba/ Roque Nublo
For this day we offer two possibilities:
The first option is to go back to Tamadaba to overcome pending challenges or explore additional climbing sectors. Tamadaba has many sectors and routes, some of which require the help of a guide to reach.
The other option is to go climb the Roque Nublo. This boulder is one of the biggest in the world and has impressive views. It is the emblem of our island and is a unique attraction, especially for those who practice traditional and aid climbing.
Day 4: Rest day
We will recommend cultural outings depending on the group’s preferences.
We offer you the chance to try out an additional activity such as bungee jumping, kayak, canyoning, etc. (not included in the price).

Day 5: Sport Climbing in Fataga
On the fifth day, after breakfast, the group will move from Artenara to a rural lodge in Fataga (in the south-center of the island.) From there our guide will take you to the sport-climbing zone in Fataga, near the dam, where you will spend the afternoon climbing. The crag in Fataga is one of the most popular with the local climbers. It has short but explosive routes, and its volcanic rock is one of the most special in the island.
Once the day is over, the group will go back to the lodge where they can prepare a barbecue, go for a swim in the pool or take a walk around the charming village.
