Canary Islands

Canary Islands – Jewels Of Nature

The Canary Islands archipelago, which includes the seven major islands of Tenerife, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, La Palma, La Gomera, and El Hierro, are located off the coast of Morocco. Since the islands are actually a part of Spain, they have a fantastic blend of culture you won’t find anywhere else on earth. From stunning sandy beaches and crystalline turquoise-blue waters to dramatic lunar landscapes and dormant volcanoes.

The Canary Islands, especially Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura, and Lanzarote, are a major tourist destination. This is due to their beaches, subtropical climate, and important natural attractions, especially Maspalomas in Gran Canaria, Teide National Park, and Mount Teide (a World Heritage Site) in Tenerife. Mount Teide is the highest peak in Spain and the third tallest volcano in the world.

The Canarian Cuisine Calls

Simple, fresh ingredients are the answer to Canarian cuisine’s call. Dishes are influenced by a medley of African, European and American flavours – blending to make the mouth-watering meals. The most well-known of Canarian dishes is the infamous papas arrugadas (wrinkly potatoes). Served with mojo (a spicy sauce made with coriander and red chilli peppers), these potatoes are a menu highlight across the board. Mainland Spain concoctions pop up everywhere too, including paella and tortilla (omelette).

Festivals & Fiestas

Just like Mainland Spain, the Canary Islands know how to throw a good party! Famous for their fiestas and celebrations, year-round festivals match the glorious year-round sunshine. In November Fuerteventura hosts an International Kite Flying Festival, while February sees one of Europe’s biggest carnivals in the form of Santa Cruz de Tenerife! A show-stopping spectacle bursting with elaborate costumes and Latin American dance, Lanzarote and Gran Canaria also celebrate it.

Shopping in the Canaries

  • The islands’ aloe vera cosmetic products are exceptionally high quality, since they have additional minerals because of the plant being grown on volcanic earth. That’s why they are internationally renowned and perfect for skincare or for taking home as souvenirs from the Canary Islands.
  • Canary Islands craftsmanship is also highly valued: to take home a little bit of island culture and tradition, buy some traditional Canary Islands earrings, a hat from La Graciosa or a necklace made with volcanic stone.
  • There are a number of shopping centres among the most popular ones are the Siam Mall in Adeje (Tenerife), Biosfera Plaza in Puerto del Carmen (Lanzarote), the Tablero in Maspalomas (Gran Canaria), and Las Rotondas in Puerto del Rosario (Fuerteventura).

 

Gran Canaria:

Discover great walking trails on this self-guided walking holiday to Gran Canaria. This journey takes you from the east to the west of the island through dramatic and varied volcanic landscapes, often on the classic paths, the ‘Caminos Reales’.
