The Canary Islands are located 1000 kilometres to the south of Spain, which is their mother country, and lie 155 kilometres from the western coast of Africa. The seven islands originated as volcanoes and have a tropical climate – with an average temperature of 21 degrees. Even during the winter the temperature rarely drops below 15 degrees. Its friendly inhabitants are of mixed origin. All of the islands have airports, except La Gomera. The islands are connected by ferries and relatively cheap internal flights.

Sun, heat and relaxation are only a foretaste of what is on offer. More than 300 volcanic craters form a fascinating moon landscape on the "Island of Fire", with pink, purple and ochre-coloured shades. Underground caves, tunnels and even lakes entice visitors to go off on an adventure. Few people know the legend that the island once formed part of Atlantis. In addition, Lanzarote is the Canary Island for surfers, with the best waves of all.

 

La PalmaLa Palma

San Miguel de La Palma or "La Palma" is beautifully green and impressively hilly. Not for nothing is the island nicknamed "La Isla Bonita": the pretty island. The north of the island is tropical green, with banana plantations and vineyards; the southern part is chiefly covered by coniferous woods. The national park, La Caldera de Taburiente, with its ravines and waterfalls and one of the world's largest craters, is particularly impressive.

 

TenerifeTenerife

Needless to say, most people come to Tenerife to sunbathe, swim, eat well and spoil themselves. However, what brings back tourists year after year is the large variety the island has to offer. Tenerife is so much more than beautiful beaches. Here you find exuberant traditional festivals as well as peace and quiet. Glistening snow and glowing lava are close neighbours here. There is something new to discover every day.
