A photo tour through Gran Canaria

Photography & Words:  Ingeborg from Glitter & Twigs Photography

 “The images are all from Gran Canaria where I was staying for 7 days with my husband and his family. We stayed in a private lodge in Tauro, which is near Puerto Rico and Amadores beach. My husband and I are definitely not the typical beach tourists so we headed for the mountains in a rented vehicle & we did a day trip to Las Palmas. We also did round trips on the Island where we visited Puerto Mogán (the port city), La Aldea de San Nicolás (The city with the closed doors), Artenara (the Restaurant with a view), and Roque Nublo, among other places.
 

If you are traveling with beach loving people who just want to soak up the sun in Gran Canaria, never worry! There are things to see and do and experience in this dry, little volcano island. Rent a car or scooter (roads are steep and narrow, so you should be an experienced driver) and drive anywhere the road will take you. I especially recommend climbing Roque Nublo. We did it twice, once when the clouds were heavy with rain and we didn’t see anything, just to be AMAZED by the view when we climbed it the next day at sunset and the view was spectacular. If you drive from La Aldea de San Nicolás to Artenara you’ll see some interesting scenery, drive some scary roads and not to mention the cave houses which are a weird constellation of buildings inside the mountain walls/caves. The restaurant below the Jesus statue in Artenara has the most amazing view from it’s cave terrace.”

About Ingeborg
“I am Ingeborg, I love seeing the little details when travelling, I love scenery, I love authentic, and I love the diversity of food, good coffee, wine and beer. I’m a photographer based in Norway (soon to be Edinburgh). I photograph weddings and portraits digitally, but travel is my passion and film is perfect for travelling. It makes me relax & the result is amazing, and it makes me think about what I really capture, which makes the memories stronger.”
