"Gran Canaria is the second most populous island of the Canary Islands..." (c) Wikipedia – and the second of Canarian treasures we've discovered after Tenerife. Probably the most balanced trip in our experience – a week of rather intense food consumption, mountain hiking, roadtripping and beachwise donothingness 😄. Best time to go is Spring, just before the season starts. The island is a lush blossoming garden, not yet that crowded and rather affordable, but can be chilling at night. Don't hesitate to ask me questions!
