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.

The Rallye Villa de Teror / Gran Canaria Historic Rally, an asphalt category rally, will be held on the island from the 4th to the 5th of November. If we go south, on 12th November we have the 48th Subida de Fataga a Tunte, a mountain rally, coinciding with the race in San Bartolomé (VII Subida de Tunte).

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 20th 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

It’s a real outdoor party with an average outdoor temperature of 24ºC, which undoubtedly catapults it to the top of this list of things to do in Gran Canaria in November.

Come and enjoy a week of amazing events with live shows with international artists, pool parties, boat trips, parades, dance sessions and much more.
