The Canary Islands, a small paradise in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean
Known for their mild climate all year round, the seven small islands which make up the Canaries have many surprises in store: from towering volcanoes and rugged mountains to enchanting forests and the clear blue seas; from hidden coves to white and black sand beaches… Whatever your desires, there is a Canary Island adventure waiting for you…
Our 4 favorite things to do in the Canary Islands:
Admire the sunrise
from the summit of Teide
Guided first by shooting stars and then by the first light of the day, this hike will take you to the highest point of Spain at a majestic 3718m. Little by little, the landscape and its colors unfold around you as you approach the summit with its stunning 360° panorama. Admire the neighboring islands and views of the ocean, as far as the eye can see – a truly magical experience.
Go diving in the crystal
clear waters of the Restinga
Fully equipped from head to toe, discover an underwater lava flow hidden off the coast of Hierro, the wildest island in the Canary Archipelago. Plunge into un-spoilt depths of the Atlantic Ocean where you can swim among rays, trumpet fish and grouper. An unforgettably adventure in a natural underwater haven where cliffs, sandy platforms and caves are waiting to be explored.
Go hiking in the heart
of the primeval forest
Journey back to the origins of the canaries through the primary forest, a truly remarkable place which has remained exceptionally preserved throughout the ages. Discover the serenity which emanates from the old-growth forest with its clean air and lush vegetation. A network of hiking trails enables you to venture between ancient trees and giant ferns and reveals spectacular views over the canopy.
Immerse yourself in
Take the small roads, discover remote villages, admire local art and unique architecture. Whether you find yourself in a small seaside town or high up in the pine forests, take a break in a ‘guachinche’, a small Canarian restaurant where you can sample locally sourced traditional food.
