Nature & Flora tours
Seven main islands form the Canary archipelago in a region called Macaronesia (the Fortunate Islands)
Gran Canaria with an area of almost 1,600 km2 and a maximum altitude of 1,958 meters presents a variety of amazing landscapes, which is worth the name of “Continent in miniature”.
The climatic factors (humidity, winds and temperatures) together with the topographical factors (altitude and orientation) decisively regulate the distribution of the vegetation: the island offers us different level of vegetation, and therefore, a great variety of plant formations, considering itself a “Hot Spot” of biodiversity.
Numerous species of plants are true living fossils from the Tertiary who disappeared in the rest of the continent. Also, the evolution of some of these species has given new differentiated forms in order to colonizer the habitats of each island.
The archipelago has more than 2,000 species of plants, and more than 25% of these species are endemic. This endemic flora consists of 577 species and 98 subspecies 89 exclusive plant varieties. Many of these species are currently threatened.In Gran Canaria, we have 93 exclusive species of the island (18 are sub-species and another 17 are varieties).
We offer a wide range of tours for the disclosure of the flora and all kinds of public, using all our senses to discover and identify the most popular species of canary plants, enjoying pleasant days among gardens and nature.
