One of the three great barranco drives up into the Gran Canaria highlands, the GC 605 hairpins its way up the Mogan Valley until it reaches the cumbres at Ayacata village just below Roque Nublo.
The Tamadaba loop road gives you the best views out over the Atlantic Ocean towards Tenerife and Teide volcano. It's a driving must in Gran Canaria.
This little-known rural road winds up through the northwest of Gran Canaria past cliff-edge villages and flower meadows and brings you to the wild pine forests of Tamadaba.

We advise all non-petrolheads to head to the beach rather than the mountains on Saturday.
The GC 15 is the main northern route up from Las Palmas to Cruz de Tejeda and the Gran Canaria highlands. It's windy but wide and runs through the green valleys and hillsides of northeast Gran Canaria and a series of interesting towns and villages.
The GC 200 has it all from hairpin bends to sheer cliff-edge drops. It's Gran Canaria's most spectacular road and takes you right through the Biosphere Reserve along its most remote coast.
Wind: 28.97 km/h
The Light House café in Arguineguín does great sandwiches and burgers and has splendid views of the marina from its terrace.
