Cycling around the island

The Transgrancanaria Bike is a mountain bike race that runs through Gran Canaria from Artenara, at the top of the island, and finishes in Maspalomas after 120 km in two stages on the 6th and 7th of November.

The first stage goes from Artenara to El Garañón, near the highest point of Gran Canaria, while the second stage starts from El Garañón and finishes in Maspalomas in a descent with breathtaking views.

This is an event with international projection, which wants to become one of the benchmark events on the world mountain bike scene. If you love cycling... you shouldn't miss it!

See one of the best rallies in the world

Did you know that Gran Canaria is a land with passion for motor racing? In fact, thanks to its rugged terrain full of ravines, slopes, and winding roads, it’s one of the best settings for rally events.

Thus, from 18 to 20 November, the 45th Rally Islas Canarias will be held on the island, which will close the FIA ERC 2021 as the eighth round of a calendar that continues to maintain legendary events on its roadmap.

Climbing the peaks of the island to see the aces in the motor industry up close is a unique experience that you can't miss. That's why it's one of the best things to do in Gran Canaria in November.

Participate in the most southern marathon in Europe

Gran Canaria Maspalomas Marathon is an unrepeatable experience for all running enthusiasts. Running the 42 km of the race, feeling the sea breeze on the 21st of November, is something unique.

Let yourself be captivated by the natural space of the Maspalomas Dunes, let the Maspalomas Lighthouse guide you and try to reach the finish line of a race that will delight both professional and amateur runners.

This is a real opportunity to run on the road of personal improvement and euphoria, and share unforgettable moments. The effort is never in vain, and the goal awaits you. Think about it: you’re one step away from the best version of yourself.

Embrace diversity and tolerance
