Santa Cruz de La Palma, with its colourful patchwork of balconied homes, strung along the azure Atlantic, is a gateway to hiking paradise.

The largest of the Canaries is dominated by the lofty heights of Mount Teide, which at 12,197 feet is Spain's tallest mountain. The landscape ranges from the volcanic scenery of Teide National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, to valleys of spiny cacti and leafy banana plantations. Tenerife's capital Santa Cruz sits just below the eastern tip of the island and is shielded from trade winds by the Anaga hills. This modern, bustling city has its share of colonial architecture and many interesting museums.

You can walk through the town in the footsteps of Christopher Colombus, explore the many art galleries of Vegueta and stroll through the historic neighbourhood of La Isleta. Alternatively, challenge yourself with a hike to the top of the 200-metre volcanic crater of Caldera de Bandama. Also, with the sea an ever-present element, water sports are all the rage and a placid introduction to fun on the waves is the newly created sport of paddleboarding.

Declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO, Lanzarote is renowned for its fascinating volcanic terrain. Art lovers will want to learn about the island’s most famous artist, César Manrique, at his former home, and see his beautifully designed cactus garden in Guatiza.
