“I just don’t think you can beat the imposing majesty of Mount Teide, watching over the island.”

Richard Newsome, Holiday Creator

Warmed by the currents of the Gulf Stream, the Canaries benefit from year-round sunshine

The Canary Islands are a diverse little archipelago with two things in common: great weather year-round and some of the best beaches in Europe. They are Spain's most far-flung territory, sitting just off of the coast of northwest Africa.

Tenerife, the largest of the islands, is renowned for its landscape of lush forests, mountains and dark volcanic beaches. Or perhaps you'll plump for Gran Canaria, best known for its stunning swathe of sand dunes.

Lanzarote has a distinctive lunar-like landscape and nowhere are the Canaries' volcanic origins more evident than here. Then there's Fuerteventura, whose seemingly never-ending beaches are gloriously uncrowded. Oh, decisions, decisions . . .


Things to do

If you'd like to put your feet up and completely unwind, choose a relaxing holiday to the Canaries in one of our lovely coastal hotels. However, if you just can't choose between the islands, how about opting for a tour that island-hops between them, or maybe join a cruise?

That way you'll be able to discover the unique highlights of each of the islands - even little La Gomera, the smallest and most untouched of the islands. Those with green fingers (or admirers of others' work) might like to try one of our special interest holidays in Tenerife or Gran Canaria, or you could perhaps step it up with a walking holiday of Lanzarote.
