Join Italy Gay Travels on an amazing vacation on the magic island of Gran Canaria (Spain) during the Winter Pride Celebrations!
We will stay in Playa del Ingles, around the Yumbo Center, Mecca of the gay Gran Canaria island and the heart of all the action. The accommodation is in an all-gay hotel: The Ritual Maspalomas, with a great atmosphere and guaranteed gayness all year-round!

This unforgettable vacation takes place during the Winter Pride Celebration on the sand-dunes beaches of Gran Canaria. The island is world-famous for its friendly inhabitants, unique gay atmosphere and sun-kissed beaches all year round.

We will celebrate the Gay Gran Canaria Carnival on the beach: the party has its biggest moment on 11th November, at 11.11 hr.  We will continue the celebration taking part in the parade along the Main Street of Playa del Ingles: It’s Winter Pride Madness! Mingle with the Spanish local gay talent and meet new friends from all over the world in this 1 week long special adventure organised by Italy Gay Travels.

Make your way to our host all-gay hotel, Ritual Maspalomas. For our group we have reserved the best en-suite Junior Suites around!

In the evening join your fellow Gay Travelers and your tour host, Sergio, for a Complimentary Welcome Drink. During the evening we will all get to meet each other and have a full briefing on the adventure that lies ahead, while bar hopping in the best gay bars in the Yumbo Center.

Day 2

Pool Party

After breakfast feel free to take a seat by the pool of the hotel. Reserve a sun lounge and relax. The best pool party is about to start!

Get ready to transport yourself back to the 80s and 90s with Club Tropicana – the ultimate daytime pool party during Winter Pride Maspalomas! At Hotel Ritual, we’ll be turning up the heat with a sizzling hot mix of 80s classics, DJs Trojan, Ross Alexander and Esteban and a live performance from the world’s best Boy George tribute act. Dive into the pool and dance to the beat of the biggest hits from the era. Dress to impress in your best retro swimwear and get ready to party like it’s the 80s!

Coffee, Food and Rock Pools

Today, after breakfast, we join our friends of CanCanaria for a day tour to explore the island of Gran Canaria.

You probably didn’t know Gran Canaria is home to the only coffee plantations in Europe. Now you can take a deep dive into the exotic Agaete Valley and tour a family-run finca producing a soft, handcrafted, gourmet-quality coffee… and of course, sample their produce too!

After the Plantation we will go to a local Canarian Restaurant for a meal, then into the Port of Agaete where you will have time to explore this handsome fishing village and its natural swimming pools and marvel at the stunning coastline of the western side of the Island.

  • Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch


Day 5

Away Boat Party

Today an amazing Boat Party awaits us, not to be missed! We are joining on the Gran Canaria’s top-rated boat excursion – a 5* experience on board a beautiful Catamaran! We will make our way to Puerto Rico and board a 4 hours cruise while awaiting the sunset. This is the event your host Sergio looks forward to the most in this Gay Gran Canaria Winter Pride (do you know he also organises an amazing Gay Boat Party in Sunny Puglia in September)? Dance the day away with DJ beats, while sipping free flow beer and sangria. Buffet lunch is included!

  • Meals included: Breakfast, Buffet Lunch onboard the Boat

After breakfast, it is time to head to the beach! 11th November, at 11.11 hr, Carnival season is officially starting! Wear your best costumes (or just your birthday suit) and join in on the fun along with thousands of gay friends from all over the world.

In the afternoon, we will continue the celebration taking part to the Winter Pride Parade along the Main Street of Playa del Ingles, finishing off at the infamous Yumbo Center. Ready to dance the night away?
