A stone's throw from Playa del Inglés is the village of Cercados de Espino: an ideal base for rough walks. In this forgotten village with its surprising young and fresh population, the "Ancients of Days" and local youth have joined forces and started an association with the aim of upgrading the local natural heritage."La Asociación de los Acebuches" restores the capricious paths that screw up the mountain ridges with innumerable curves. With an annual trail competition they seduce “atletas de élite” who, thanks to their large supporters, try to place the Arguineguín gorge on the international hiking map.The barranco is so narrow, high and deep that there are corners where the sun never shines. As a result, this ravine is home to small green and fertile spots that smell like a wet Belgian summer with their lush vegetation.We show you the real Gran Canaria, smell it and taste it!
