1. Gran Canaria: Cliff Climbing Via Ferrata Trip by Maspalomas

Inspire your adventurous side during this Via Ferrata guided climbing trip from Bahía Feliz. Via Ferrata is the perfect option for learning how to climb in a fun way; it's easier than climbing but with the same level of adventure. Your trip includes all the gear you need for a safe climb. After meeting in Bahía Feliz, you’ll get your climbing equipment (helmet, harness, and Ferrata kit), then start a 30-minute walk across a valley with a landscape that really looks like a western movie. After the walk, you’ll reach the starting point of the Via Ferrata. In Via Ferrata, you’ll go up a rock mountain using iron steps and a safe line, which makes it easier than climbing for most climbers. On this trip, the route will be medium-level, perfect for true adrenaline lovers. Your guide will explain to you all the techniques before starting; you don't need experience, only a normal fitness. They’ll belay you when you need it using ropes. During the climb, you’re in for the ultimate adventure. Prepare to explore caves and cross a floating bridge at 60 meters high. To round off your trip, you’ll get to fly in the highest swing of Gran Canaria before heading back to the starting point via a different trail.

Tenerife: La Orotava Canyoning Trip with Canyoning Guide

2. Tenerife: La Orotava Canyoning Trip with Canyoning Guide

Try something new and spend an active day outdoors on this canyoning excursion to La Orotava from Tenerife. Gear up in canyoning gear, then prepare to rappel down the orange canyon walls, take in the fresh air, and get unbeatable views of the landscape. The approach to the ravine begins on a forest track with a gentle slope, where you’ll walk for about 45 minutes. The start of your descent begins with a first rappel of about 22 meters. From here, you can begin to observe how the accumulation of volcanic ash and the erosion produced by the passing of time have naturally come together and formed this unique canyon. The light playing against the moss-covered orange walls and creating various shades will undoubtedly be the main attraction during the entire descent. After finishing 9 rappels, arrive at the Chimoche track to conclude your descent. Finish off your trip by making your way back to the starting point on an approximately 20-minute walk.

I can't say enough good things about our guide Jorge and about this trip. Super well managed, gorgeous canyon, spectacular day. Jorge was very knowledgeable and safe. He put everyone at ease. I'm an experienced climber and was impressed by his safety systems and knowledge. Each rappel had it's own challenges, keeping us interested. He taught us well and also adapted to the comfort of each member of the group. He took the time to make sure everyone got great photos and taught us about the local flora and geology. We absolutely strongly recommend this trip and Jorge.

Joche was the most friendliest and motivated tourguide we have ever met! Even if you feel uncomfortable or unsecure he help you to overcome your fear (and this in a really funny way :D). We explore more then 5 canyoning spots and leaned different technicals to handle them. It was the best choice for us to learn something about Teneriffas nature and local life. For example he recommend some local foods and drinks. Thanks Joche!! And when you visit Germany, switzland or Austria please feel free to contact us for some recommendations!

Beautiful, varied, sometimes not very easy via ferrata hike. We have experience with via ferrata so it wasn't a problem for us. For inexperienced people it is certainly a challenge in places, although Manuel could always help with an additional safety device. Therefore also feasible for inexperienced people. We really enjoyed the trip. Our guide Manuel was great and told us a lot of interesting things. We would 100% recommend the tour and Manuel.

It was an awesome experience and a lot of fun. Beware - you HAVE TO BE in a good shape! The hike at the end is more of a climb and very demanding.

It was just great fun. Jorge provides the orientation that is needed, but also leaves the freedom to try things out. Thumbs up!
