Holidays to Canary Islands, Spain

Holidays to the Canary Islands offer travellers endless discoveries. This scintillating Spanish archipelago lies north-west of Africa and comprises seven main idyllic islands, alongside another minor island. Each melds sun, sea and culture together to create adventures of a lifetime.

There are few better places to explore unique countryside than here; the Canaries are one of the most biodiverse areas in the world. The landscapes vary from rugged deserts, luscious forests, marvellous mountain ranges and all kinds of volcanic nature. Plus, the many national parks provide trails for visitors to hike, bike or stroll along.

When visiting these sleepy islands, you’ll find quaint, coastal fishing villages as well as historical old towns lined with whitewashed houses. You can rest on beaches formed of dark red or black sand, or spend your days on the gorgeous golden dunes stretching out into the distance. Then, sit back and admire the rich architecture while gobbling up fresh seafood (which is caught daily)!
