Roque Nublo is one of the largest natural rocks in the world and one of the largest in Gran Canaria.
It is situated in the centre of the island, in the municipality of Tejeda. The summit is a basalt monolith approximately 70 metres high and stands 1813 metres above sea level.
Today, it is a popular day trip destination for tourists as well as hikers and climbers who want to scale the monolith. The trip from the coast takes about 60 minutes by car.
From the car park there is a hiking trail that takes you to the summit. The route was built as a partially engraved stone path that becomes rockier and a bit more demanding towards the top, although there is no risk of falling.
To enjoy the walk, it is advisable to wear sports shoes.
The walk takes between 45 and 60 minutes and the distance one way is approximately 1.5 kilometres.
