About Gran Canaria

Just like the other Canary Islands, Gran Canaria also has a volcanic origin. You can see that clearly reflected in the landscape in various places. The island has a round shape where the center is mountainous and the coast is hilly. A large part of the island originated millions of years ago. An estimated 1000 square kilometers (two-thirds) has arisen somewhere between 9 and 14 million years ago. Geologists estimate that this process lasted around two hundred thousand years. The surface mainly consisted of alkali basalt. Subsequently, the volcano mainly added trachyte, phonolite, and peralkaline rocks to the surface of Gran Canaria. This was followed by a long period (approximately 4 million years) of erosion. Between about 3.4 to 4.5 there was a second cycle of volcanic eruptions. This is called the “Roque Nublo cycle”. During these shorter emission cycles, mainly domestic peaks, such as Roque Nublo, have arisen. The third cycle started around 2.8 million years ago and is still officially underway. The last eruptions took place around 3500 years ago. Therefore this means there is a so-called sleeping volcano. After all, no clear cycle can be observed and there has been no activity for a long number of years. So a volcano eruption can potentially occur. That can be today, but also in thousands of years.

The island is relatively green. Before the Spanish settled on the island, the landscape was mainly dominated by forests. In recent centuries, however, enormous deforestation has taken place as a result of logging, giving Gran Canaria the dubious honor of being the most deforested island of the Canary Islands. Reforestation ensures that the amount of trees increases again, and the beautiful island begins to recover from a prolonged period of deforestation.
