Tenerife, Gran Canaria and La Gomera gave us a beautiful experience in the last days
Have a look and come with us.
On our first riding day we rode up the windi smal road to the Cadas through impressive old pine forests ahead to small fields. On the end a stone dessert with an volcano area is waiting. You see the different layers how the island of Tenerife grows up and how Teide could rise up to Spains highest mountain.
After this beautiful viewing point the road twists ahead over the high plateaus to the calm lunchstop in El Portillo were a delicious Cnariensoup was waiting for us.
After lunch we went downt to the old connection road TF-28 with hundrets of curves and beautiful Barrancos.
On the next morning we took the ferry to visit the smal naighbor island La Gomera with her unbelievable differences and nature spectacles.
The cold down vulcanos give a majestic scenry and the streets through them look like they were just built for motorcyclist and brand new
From the vulcanos we crossed the laureal forest around Garajonay mountain end entered the Valle Gran Rey with his mind blwing view to the beach.
After endless marvel in to the Valle Gran Rey we spend a nice lunch time at the beach

The third day leads us to the third island of the trip. Going over the TF-28 again and tausen curves to Santa Cruz. There we enjoyed lunch at the port ant entered the ferry to cruz over.
Soon as we landed on the new island we found the first perfect streets and started climbing in to the central mountains
After grate riding trough brown hills, green forests and flowering feelds we reached the first picture stop to over view the breath taking barranco of Tejeda with Roque Nublo and Roque Bentayga.
There we also had the chance to meet some of the locals
In Cruz de Tejeda we stoped for a coffee in the bright afternoon sun and enjoyed the mountain village scenery.
Right in front of our hotel we went up to Pico de Badama a sleeping vulcano to enjoy the sunset over the mountain range of Gran Canaria.
The morning welcomed us with a beutiful play of sun beams over the cost and we started our ride to the cave villages of Barranco Guayaldeque were we had a great coffee in the cave restaurant in the end of the valley. The Barranco also offered us a spectacular scenery with almond blossom like beeing in an botanical garden befor we started climbing up again to Gran Canarias highest peak Pico de las Nieves.
After a nother impressiv view over the north west cost and Tenerife we stoped for lunch at Yolandas grill restaurant to enjoy the tasty local kitchen and try the canary motocycle offert on the big plaza in front.
Than it goes down again over perfect streets and hundret of curves to the ferry station in Porto de las Nieves to cruz over again to Tenerife.

Riding up on the steep road to Chiche to over view the south west cost andan crossing the mountain range on Passo de Erque to visit the oldest dragon tree "El Drago" in Icod.
