Oct 2019 • Friends
Our guide Paula was the best, she is really nice and passionate to her job and speak fluenty english and german.
The tour in the finca with her was really interesting,you can see and try fresh fruits from mango to orange
At the end you will have a tasting of delicious wine with local cheese, marmelade and others delicatessen and try the most famous coffee in the island
All for just 8€ ( you can pay by cash or card)
They have as well a little shop where you can buy everything that you tried

Winery and coffee..
Apr 2019 • Friends
Decided to do some sightseeing one day due to cloudy weather during our stay in Galdar.
Was recommended by a local resident.
Finca la laja is a winery and coffee farm situated a slow 25 minute drive from Galdar. We were greeted by friendly staff who offered us a tour of the winery with snacks and a wine tasting for a very reasonable €8.. We found the short tour very interesting and informative and afterwards we were led to an outside restauraunt terrace. We were served with a generous sample of white wine and snacks of dry rye bread, coffee marmalade (delicious for coffee lovers like me) local cheese and homemade cake. 2nd generous sample of wine arrived and snacks topped up. This continued for around an hour with 3 more wine tastings and snacks.. The staff were amazingly friendly and helpful throughout. There's also a small shop selling the wine you've sampled laid out in the same order which they were served. And of course I had to buy a bottle and a couple of jars of the coffee marmalade which helps to kick start me before work now I'm back in the UK..
Excellent value for money if you're in the area and have a couple of hours to pass..
Would go back again even if only for the wine and light lunch..lol

Beautiful nature
Feb 2019 • Couples
Landscapes like nowhere else, Dedo de Dios is the must. Driving from Roce Nublo was scary but definetely worth the risk.We liked Los Caserones very much. Not many tourists, relaxed atmosphere.

Hidden gem
Dec 2018
The farmers probably don't want tourists up there, and they are right as there is no parking and a very narrow mountain road going up the valley, but the valley has the most stunning views of the island and a lush vegetation from pines to cactus to all kind of plantations. If you like to go out of the beaten path a visit here is a must.

Coffee & wine plantasion
Dec 2018 • Couples
Called the only coffee plantasion in Europa -hmm my geography doesn’t include this to Europa :) but a nice activity to do as there is not that much in Gran Canary island. There is no signs just trust and drive through the village of San Pedro, after the cetral square there is a bridge to the right. First comes the coffee plantasion in the right and a 100 m later the winery to the left

Worth the visit!
Nov 2017
Beatiful landscape, very much in contrast to the coast, with forests and lush hills, a visit to the coffee plantation is highly recommended.

Beautiful, must see this oft overlooked treasure
Mar 2018 • Couples
We took a cruise excursion to see Puerto de las Nieves and an Agaete wine tasting tour.

Arguably one of the best days we had.

From Las Palmas, the journey to the area is 30-40 minutes, quite manageable and very pretty, especially on the coastal road where there are great views and some impressive bridge work affording spectacular views.

We went to Agaete first, and although the village before the valley has narrow streets for the bus, it is pretty in itself, seemed a necessary intrusion to have buses going through to get the tourist income.

Once in the valley - wow! The views of the surrounding hills in lovely blue over green are breathtaking and the microclimate here made it +4 or 5C degrees higher than the village.

The farm is beautiful, and they grow all sorts of fruit, making their own coffee and wine, as well as scented moisturising cream. The visit was a tour, and the guide was great and informed. All the staff are friendly and the family business take pride in what they do. They are very proud of their wine awards and the near-secret visit by Stephen Hawking in 2014 (I think it was), clearly made more poignant this year after his recent passing.

They offer vehicles to allow the less mobile the means to skip the short but fairly steep walk through the orchard to the wine tasting area and when you get there, you are offered 'blood water'! At least that is what we called it! Meant to be very good for you but the iron rich spring water is hard to stomach and maybe should be avoided if you are sensitive.

Look out for the small church there and the toilets are also close by and clean.

The tasting of 3 wines (white, rose, red) together with a few food accompaniments was fun - and their award winning white was the best of the three imho, although I prefer red generally. They ended with a sample of their coffee which was good too.

Finally you can buy from their shop (of course) and we plumped for some moisturiser which was really pleasant to feel when offered around after the coffee.

The atmosphere was great, the staff wonderful and best was the smell you took in walking through the grounds - a very memorable visit.

Nearby Puerto de las Nieves is a pleasant extra good for it's beaches, eateries and shops, worthwhile to pass an hour or two.

Not many people choose the Agaete tour, which was maybe 5 hours return from Las Palmas, but I see it as a treasure that shouldn't be overlooked. Beautiful.

Beautiful valley, perfect for cyclists and walkers
Feb 2018
A lush, green valley perfect for cyclists or walkers. A lot of houses and the village of San Pedro early on, then gets increasingly remote.

Cycle on tarmacced roads to 1,700 ft (yep the last bit is steep). Paths go off the edge and, at the end, a steep climb to the central plateau.

Simply a must for nature lovers

Incredible Views after Challenging Climb
Dec 2017 • Family
The west coast of Gran Canaria boasts astonishing views out over the Atlantic Ocean. To take in these breathtaking vistas, however, prepare to climb. The blue Global bus lines take hikers to the village of Agaete. From there it is one great climb into a magnificent canyon. Just an hour beyond the abandoned Guayarmina Hotel, passing Sao, hikers reach El Hornillo. From there, the peak of Teide on the neighboring isle of Tenerife seems close enough to touch on a clear day.
