Apart from being a destination associated with beach holidays, Gran Canaria has other many qualities that make the island a magic spot to spend time in touch with nature. There's a wide array of possibilities and activities, from walking holidays around remote and beautiful places observing endemic species to adventure sports. Everything is possible in a Gran Canaria holiday for those who want a short break or a family holiday to fulfil their need of nature.
Nearly 43% of Gran Canaria's territory is protected and has been declared a “Biosphere Reserve”. Therefore, a great offer of environmentally friendly tourism has been developed in the island respecting nature and its fragile condition. An example of this is the network of refurbished, characterful rural houses and fincas for self catering holidays and the wide array of leisure activities ranging from adventure sports like climbing to treks along recently recovered old paths belonging to the cutural and historic heritage of the island.
This is why Patronato de Turismo de Gran Canaria, Federaciòn de Empresarios de Hostelerìa, Turismo de Las Palmas and industry professionals launched in 2004 the ambitious project Gran Canaria Natural. Thanks to this association between the public and private sector we are aiming to join efforts focused towards the same goal: the promotion of Gran Canaria as a natural destination.
Gran Canaria Natural brings together a tourism offer focused on nature wich comprises rural hotels, guest houses and holiday rentals located in a natural environment. This is complemented by companies that offer outdoor and natural activities. The result is a great destination offering family holidays, self catering holidays and short breaks in rural country houses and rural hotels.
Grancanarianaturalandactive.com is designed to promote the knowledge of this product. This website is the fruit of our efforts to present Gran Canaria as a destination for rural homes and active holidays on an international level, as well as to commercialize our resorts services.
We look forward to welcoming you to spend your holydays in Gran Canaria, island of nature and relaxation.
