A walk through the clouds of symbolism

According to Baudelaire the poet is able to decipher “the forest of symbols” in which we live, the “confused words” that surround us, and to establish those relationships, or correspondences, between perfumes, colors and sounds. We propose you to practice for a day and find those “correspondences” while you travel the peaks of Gran Canaria and enjoy contemplating the magnificent sea of clouds. What are you waiting to reserve this Senda and cross to the other side “reader, my fellow, my brother …”? (To continue with Baudelaire’s words).

  • Departure from the according hotel. We will meet at the scheduled meeting point to start the tour.
  • Small groups. The groups of this activity will always be reduced (from 2 to 8 people). In this way we guarantee that the experience will be more personal and intense for all.

  • Llegada al Pico de las Nieves. Al llegar al Pico de las Nieves, una de las zonas más altas de la isla de Gran Canaria, podremos disfrutar de las maravillosas vistas de la cumbre. Al mismo tiempo nuestro guía nos interpretará el paisaje y nos contará detalles de la zona y la cultura autóctona. Además, desde este punto podremos observar, a vista de pájaro, la ruta que vamos a realizar.

In addition, from this point we can see, from a bird’s eye view, the route we are going to do.
