Trust Thomson to deliver a camp that goes above and beyond. Gran Canaria has it all: Big mountains, endless sunshine, and 4-star resorts to rest and recharge at the end of each day. This cycling paradise, just a short flight from Barcelona or Madrid, reaches 2000 m in elevation (6,000ft). We put the island’s big climbs, Valley of the Tears and Pico de las Nieves, up there with the hardest climbs we’ve done in the Alps. The perfect temperatures guarantee you’ll return home with a killer cycling tan and superior fitness.

New in 2020: our Gran Canaria camp is even better than before. We’ve made a few enhancements to our routes and in 2020 we’ll be staying 2 nights in the Cordial Hotel in Agaete followed by 5 nights in the Cordial Hotel in Puerto de Mogan
