Canary Islands

Canary Islands - Spain

The Canary Islands are a Spanish Archipelago located just off the northwest coast of mainland Africa which, in turn, forms one of the Spanish Autonomous Communities of the European Union.

The islands highest to lowest are: Tenerife, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, La Palma, La Gomera, El Hierro, Alegranza, La Graciosa and Montana Clara.

Located in the blue and refreshing waters of the Atlantic Ocean and carachterized by spring-like climate that lasts twelve months of the year, the Canary Islands display all of the magic of an archipelago that is unique throughout the world for its diversity and subtropical richness: Two World Heritage Sites and one National Park are some of the treasures to be discovered in Tenerife.

Fuerteventura, made of long untouched beaches of white sand set in a coastline bathed by the ocean with calm transparent water,is an ideal destination for surfers (the island has an important place on the windsurfing World Cup circuit) and for diving fans, thanks to the caves, tunnels, overhangs and rock formations to be found on its ocean beds.

Discover the magic of Lanzarote by exploring the spectacular volcanic landscapes which seem to come from distant planets.

Relax in the peaceful beaches of white sand and transparent water, and take in the impressive views of the small islets that can be glimpsed from the cliff tops.

A unique territory which is home to thousands of living species, many of them exclusive to this small corner of the Atlantic.

In the Canary Islands you will find plant species that disappeared in other parts of the planet millions of years ago.
