Tour 2: Kestrel Canyon

Description:

 

This tour takes you to the green countryside of Gran Canaria where endemic willows form a dense gallery forest along a small creek that flows down the valley all year long. After rainfall, the reed and lush vegetation, turn the area into a jungle. The ravine is part of the nature reserve called La Caldera los Marteles. The Kestrel Canyon has been protected because of its many geomorphological features, rare plants, its gallery forest and its "acebuchal": one of the last forests of wild olive trees.

 

This hike is ideal for families with children! We walk along the shallow creek. Children can build damms and have a dip in the waterfall.
