Our most popular motorcycle tour is our week-long tour of Gran Canaria, ideal for winter riding - and with the fantastic Canaries climate, this motorcycle tour is suitable for all year round riding. Every day you ride a different, awesome route experiencing the amazing micro climates that Gran Canaria has to offer.
Our week-long tour consist of 5 full days of riding with a rest day for you to explore more of the island on foot.
September to May only.
During this tour you will travel not only the length and breadth of the Island but all through, and over, the wonderful mountain routes too. Even after being here for several years, we are still finding hidden gems. The island has some of the best biking roads in Europe - and they are all here, practically on your door step.
During this week you will experience several inter-island routes visiting places including: Fataga, Artenara, Tejeda, Moya, Teror, and Aldea.
You will also ride some splendid coastal routes along the north, south, east and west. The highlight of this motorcycle tour being the unforgettable West Coast Road.
All you need to do is arrive and ride.
These roads are challenging and technical and this motorcycle tour is not for the faint hearted, novice, nervous, infrequent or inexperienced rider or if you are scared of heights.
Please also note, while this is not a fast-paced ride, we do need to make progress and often keeping up with the speed limits of the road. Riding in a group can be a challenge - all staying together. We are not able to stop at every junction to wait for slow riders to catch up. It is unfair for other riders, breaks up the momentum of the ride and spoils the fun for everyone. Therefore, if you are a particularly slow rider, this may not be ride for you, so please think hard before booking this tour.
With the thousands of hairpins, twisties and mountain climbs, this makes Canary Motorcycle Tours an excellent all year round riding destination, even more so in the winter - an excellent winter riding destination.
Where else can you have a winter motorcycle tour in Europe?
Accommodation with breakfast, a motorcycle, fuel, motorcycle insurance, jackets, helmets and gloves are included in our tours. You have one of our fabulous English speaking guides, showing you the most amazing routes, roads, scenery, mountains passes, coast roads and coffee stops this beautiful Island has to offer. We will even meet you at the airport when you arrive with airport transfers included too.
We don't have set start dates as we ride everyday and follow a weekly riding schedule. Therefore, it doesn't matter what day you arrive, you still get to ride our whole itinerary. This allows you to have total flexibility when sourcing your flights. We will work around you and your arrival dates.
For an additional cost, many people choose to spend one of their 5 riding days having a remarkable day trip over to Tenerife. It is a long day 07.00 – 22.00, but well worth the visit and additional cost. Travelling with Armas or Fred Olsen from Las Palmas or Agaete we sail to Tenerife, ride south, then up and over the Anaga Mountains, over to Mount Teide, Spain’s highest point at 3718 metres, with breathtaking views.
Later in the afternoon we travel to, weather and time permitting, to Masca, before heading back to the ferry terminal for our catamaran home.
Each day you will begin and end your tour at our unit, having the rest of the evening to explore the local town and its typical Canarian restaurants and friendly bars. If you are looking for more exciting entertainment Vecindario is not too far from the tourist resorts of Playa del Inglés or Maspalomas.
