  • I highly encourage a hike to see the Roque Nublo thanks to its sheer beauty. Although I would not encourage climbing the rock, getting close to the rock takes about an hour from a dedicated car park. The path is very easy and well indicated, with relatively clear signs. However, if you are a tourist, I would encourage saving the maps on your phone in advance and having the GPS handy just in case.
  • A 1.5km long climb, not possible for the mobility impaired! Put on shoes, no pretty sandals here, because of the rocks you have to climb. Guaranteed muscle strain. Once you have reached the rock the view is beautiful. But remember, you have to go down the same path back to the car.
