There are several different routes from the north and from the south. For the north access the most convenient starting point is at the hotel Parador. You have nice roads to the Parador from four different sides of the island, and there is bus service both from the north and from the south. You will need up to two hours from the hotel to the summit.

One convenient starting point from the south is at the Vilaflor village and you will need at least 4 to 5 hours to the summit. This is a considerably more difficult route due to the lower starting point which is at around 1400 meters above the sea level.

There are no restrictions or permits for climbing Guajara.
