Guided trip
Are you ready to visit Gran Canaria with me? I am organizing a trip to Gran Canaria, since the trip will start in December the reason for choosing this destination is due to consistent year round warm weather. Due to its climate and summer feeling, it is a perfect place for those that are summer lovers. The whole experience has a special note to it due to activities that are to be done: Road trips, boat trip, snorkeling, visiting canyon and experience the desert part of the island. Who am I? I am Balsa, 27 years old and I love travelling and meeting new people. In the past, I have already organized trips via JoinMyTrip that were very successful and fun. The TripMates loved it, and so did I! 📍 What's the plan? The trip will start from Las Palmas De Gran Canaria, there we will spend 2 days before moving south. On Las Palmas first day we will take it easy. We will do a sightseeing trip around town, go to the beach and have dinner afterwards. Second day we will explore Telde and have canyoning experience there. We will equip ourselves with the necessary safety material to live a canyoning experience in Gran Canaria, with total safety. We will descend through the water channel, having to walk, detour, jump or rappel when we reach waterfalls. All this in a beautiful environment, that will not leave us indifferent. Third day, we will move south and go to a popular playa del ingles in Maspalomas. During this day we will also explore the Maspalomas Dunes, which is one of the top attractions in Gran Canaria. The next day, we will rent the boat and go out to try to see the dolphins in their natural habitat. We will also do some snorkeling and swimming if we want to. The fifth day we will visit pico de las nieves which is the highest peak in Gran Canaria. The sixth day, we will be optional. We can either visit volcano, go to the parks our just be lazy on the beach. The price includes: - Accommodation (Apartment/shared rooms) - Program - Inner car trips - Boat trip - Welcome and Goodbye dinner Are you in? Send me a message! 📭 See you soon :)

Balsa is a great host, Montenegro is beautiful. Balsa knows all the hidden gems (bays, beaches, caves, view points). The trip is a great combination of boat, beach, nature, towns as well as relaxing. Highly recommended! :)

Was a pleasure to have Balsa as our guide - we discovered many local spots and got to meet some of his friends, with whom we frequently hang out! Excellent trip - in terms of the composition of the group, the variety of the activites as well as really getting to know the country. Highly recommend Balsa as a guide, he is very caring and gives 100% to make his guests happy.

It was an amazing trip, exactly what I was looking for :) Balsa was making a great program and it never got boring, boat tours to hidden places with BBQ, a little hiking in the mountains, local restaurants, party... but you also have some time with your tripmates, to do something together apart of the program, especially in the morning or checking out the nightlife :) Balsa is such a fun and easy-going person and always flexible to adapt the program to our wishes :) but the best part of it was meeting all this great people or better said all this new friends, who made the trip unforgettable!

The next day, we will prepare for our boat trip adventure. We will rent a boat with the captain and go for dolphin watching experience. The trip will last around 3-4 hours. While being on a boat, we will also find nice swimming spots where we can do snorkeling and other sea like activities. I will bring my go pro with me, so we also have some nice underwater material. After the boat trip we will go to our apartment, get some rest and later go out for dinner or party.

Pico de las Nieves

Day 6
The fifth day we will visit pico de las nieves which is the highest peak in Gran Canaria. The road is an attraction itself, as the inner part of the island is different from the coastal parts. We will drive through small towns and enjoy the natural beauties. Once we arrive to the destination, get ready for a hiking experience. We will hike all the way to the top which is around 2000 m, we will have breaks in between, and we will take it easy. Afterwards we will enjoy the park and relax, have dinner to enjoy the evening.
