So far we have only talked about adventure activities in Gran Canaria on land (or in the air) but let’s not forget all the water activities – after all, you are on an island!

If you’re new to water sports, kayaking or canoeing is an ideal option when trying it for the first time. With a brief initial explanation you will be able to pick it up quickly and enjoy a good time with your family, friends or partner.

Snorkeling or diving: discover the island from the Atlantic

If you are interested in the world of adventure tourism, in Gran Canaria you have the perfect opportunity to dive deep into it and enjoy it to the fullest: snorkeling or diving. Whether you are starting out or have your diving certification, discovering the marine fauna and flora that this island hides is a must.

If you plan to dive and skydive we want to remind you that you shouldn’t fly right after scuba-diving. To go skydiving at least 24 hours must have passed since you last scuba-dived.

Canyoning: adventure tourism in Gran Canaria

You have probably heard of canyoning before. It is a very comprehensive sport and it is becoming increasingly popular. In this sport you combine various disciplines such as hiking, abseiling and swimming to spend a day full of adrenaline and intense emotions.

A moment to breathe – time to disconnect

After so much adrenaline you may need a moment to relax and catch your breath. To fully enjoy a good vacation you also have to know when it’s time to let your body rest.

For this reason we leave you with some suggestions that would nicely complement the more action packed activities like jumping from a plane or diving into the mysterious underwater world of the Atlantic:

  • Montaña Arena, Guayedra, Tiritaña, Medio Almud or Tufia are some of the best hidden beaches in Gran Canaria where you can forget about the world and sunbathe on its soft sand.
  • A tour through the island’s vineyards, which has obtained the recognition of Protected Designation of Origin thanks to the climatic conditions and volcanic soil of the island.
  • Sit back in one of the many beach bars and taste the incredible Canarian cuisine.

These are some of our safe bets on adventure tourism in Gran Canaria. We hope we have been able to help you plan your next vacation to one of the most beautiful places in the Atlantic.

Remember that if you are interested in skydiving you can contact us at any time to organize your jump. We are here for you!
