Gran Canaria Training Camp Vacation

Cycling Camps in Gran Canaria, Spain - SOLD OUT

Our 2017 camps in Gran Canaria are sold out! Stay tuned for our 2018 schedule.
Gran Canaria is the perfect place for a winter cycling camp. Adventure abounds on this sunny Spanish island off the northwest coast of Africa. Because its  latitude is similar to Florida, Gran Canaria is the perfect place to visit in January and February, when the average daily temperatures are in the 70s. The gorgeous scenery and challenging mountain climbs make it a haven for cyclists and triathlon riders of all abilities.

The hottest new cycling mecca!
Climb on board for an action-packed bike trip to Gran Canaria, the secret hotspot for winter cycling vacations (here's a great video of reasons to attend a winter cycling camp). This warm, volcanic island features towering cliffs and volcanic calderas over 6500 feet above the beautiful white sandy beaches of our resort. Smooth, winding roads lead to interesting villages and towns scattered throughout the island. The diversity of the natural landscape offers something new to explore each day, from sweeping pine forests to rugged volcanic mountains to coastal shorelines with turquoise water and sandy beaches. The island also boasts a wealth of history, and interesting architecture dots the hillsides, including the ancient burial grounds of Tejeda, a sacred spot for the native islanders and one of our exciting ride destinations and photo spots. 

GRAN CANARIA FOR CYCLISTS AND TRIATHLON RIDERS
  • Perfect weather: warm and sunny, with 70-75 degree F temperatures all winter long
  • Nature’s finest: unspoiled peaks, rugged coastline, and white sandy beaches
  • Climb with the pros: the hottest new training spot for many pro teams
  • Low traffic and smooth, well-paved roads 
  • Incredible diverse scenery
GRAN CANARIA FOR EVERYONE
The third and fifth days of camp are lighter days and leave the afternoons open for relaxing on the dunes of Maspalomas  or by one of several pools at the hotel. You can also join us on a trek to the Rogue Nublo, one of Gran Canaria's natural monuments.  
  • Culture around every corner: interesting towns and villages
  • Beautiful beaches with warm, white sand and turquoise water 
  • Hiking trails to secret mountaintop spots
  • Ancient burial caves with rock paintings and carvings
  • Enjoy the sand and sea: swim, scuba, kite, or windsurf
EXPLORE LOCAL CUISINE
Our half-board packages include buffet breakfasts and dinners at the resort, but there's nothing wrong with stepping out of the hotel for a night and experiencing one of Gran Canaria's finest restaurants. We'll be glad to help arrange a special dinner for you!
