Go to the web browser and search for flights to Gran Canaria. We recommend this one because it has a nice graphic according our preferences
normally look for a direct flight or the one with less transfer / waiting time
or better arriving / depart times
also look for bike transport prices ( you can find a really cheap flight but carry your bike will duplicate total amount on one company but by other different flight company can be totally different and better) * Spanish air companies prices are between 40-75€/ flight.
prices varies depending the demand to the destination and season , for example, one common city from Germany (Munich) , Italy (Milan), Astria (Vienna) can offer one week flight trip from 70€ to 360€ in the same month. From England (London , Edimburg) is even cheaper starting prices for the complete flights from 45€. Ryanair and Norwegian are offering nice prices for a week holiday from 53€ for December and January 2018/19 in flights to Gran Canaria from Oslo and Stockholm. If you come from Finland prices are not so bad (170€) but pretty much cheaper to you than for us to go outside from the islands.
When you have approximately which dates are good to fly you need to know where to stay… Our island is pretty much touristic and you will find offers almost in every corner. When our clients ask where to stay we answer what kind of life after rides you are looking for, and here you are
The ones looking for party , beach and live in a tourist city -> South (Playa del Ingles , San Agustin , Meloneras , Arguineguin….)
The Ones more looking for cities there is Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.
The ones looking more local mood can be South – East (Arinaga , Aguimes , Telde …)
Looking for staying in mountains then Center island is the option (Fataga, San Bartolome de Tirajana , Tejeda, Valsequillo , Santa Brigida , Arucas…. and probably we can find easier a trail that finishes/starts near your accommodation
The prices vary a lot, especially for the meals and the type of accommodation, but what we recommend is that if your thought is to come and roll trails is that you choose only breakfast or half board because for the lunch you probably are not in your accommodation.
Book your place for your tours with us! We do not have a place for many people, we prefer to be like this and to treat our clients better. So better make the reservation.
When all is planned and dates approaching is time to prepare your stuff & pack your bike .
Pack your bike ! in the next link they will explain you how to https://www.bikeflights.com/pack
Remember bring on a derailleur hanger or any special part your bike should require. We are on an island and any piece that does not have the bike shop could leave you lying in the gutter. For the rest of common spare parts don’t worry , we should find (cables, deraileurs, tires, tubes, grips, saddles…….. )
About riding gear …. whell our temperatures in Cº vary from 22-25 at the coast to 0-15 Cº at the mountains so you can come ride with short gear but will fell a bit cold at the beginning of the day. About shoes there can be little walk sections so if you ask for recommendation we prefer to ride flat pedals because the little walk/push bike sections can be a bit slippery/ un-corfotable with the cleats ( nothing very determinant). Helmet is mandatory but its in your style which one choose open face or full face.
If you plan to ride only one or two days then probably is better to rent a bike in the island , there are a few choices. But also depends in how is your bike but , we think if you ride three days or more bring your bike is much better option.
Holidays!!!! Don’t be late in the airport , attention to traffic problems and the extra time you need to check in. If you have chosen the option that includes airport transfer we will be there waiting you ( remember to send us your flight number) to load your stuff and drive straight to your accommodation.
Its first riding day , lets enjoy!!!!!
