Canary Islands

A winter-sun gem, close to home

Canary Islands holidays

Introduction

With fantastic year-round weather, the Canary Islands are perfect for some summer fun, or winter sun. What’s more, there’s plenty of luxurious indulgence to choose from. We’ve picked out a collection of our favourite getaways below, offering high-end delights at fantastic rates.

Tenerife

There's more to this island chain than its off-season sun. A series of volcanoes peaking above the bright-blue Atlantic, millennia of geological activity have rendered gorgeous, gold-sand beaches, colourful dive sites and verdant national parks. It's a wild and spectacular landscape, perhaps best showcased in Tenerife’s Pico del Teide, Spain’s tallest peak.


Santa Cruz, Tenerife

Indeed, Tenerife is a treasure trove of natural wonders, taken in over a wide array of unmissable experiences, from whale-watching cruises to some of the world's very best stargazing. And, there's plenty for foodies, too, from superb tapas to a burgeoning wine scene.

Gran Canaria, Lanzarote & Fueteventura

Moving along the chain, there’s everything from Fuerteventura’s great rolling dunes and La Palma’s rainforest waterfalls to Lanzarote’s dramatic lava fields.

And, don't forget Gran Canaria, all dotted with charming fishing villages and valley towns, beautified by the timber balconies and palm-framed whitewash that typify traditional Canarian architecture. Lastly, no matter which island you choose, you’ll be spoilt for choice for world-class resorts and designer hotels. Take a look at some of our finest Canary escapes below:

Beautiful beach on the Atlantic Ocean on the island of Fuerteventura

Fuerteventura

Fuerteventura is the second largest of the Canary Islands, after Tenerife, and the closest of the archipelago to Africa - Cape Juby in Morocco is just 100 kilometres away. It has a lovely warm climate year round, which has led to it being known as the ‘island of eternal spring'.

La Palma island in Spain

La Palma

The green island of La Palma has been dubbed ‘the pretty isle' of the Canaries due to the contrasting appearance to its fellow islands. It has its lunar landscapes, too, but there are also beautiful laurel and Canary pine forests to explore on this smaller, quieter island.
