The archipelago is made up of seven main islands: Tenerife, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, La Palma, La Gomera and El Hierro.

The Canaries enjoy a subtropical climate with mild temperatures all year round, earning them the nickname of “the islands of eternal spring”.

The islands offer a variety of activities, from hiking in the national parks to scuba diving, relaxing on the black or white sandy beaches and discovering the local culture.

Yes, for example the Garajonay National Park on La Gomera and the Teide National Park on Tenerife.

The Canaries can be visited all year round thanks to their mild climate.

There are regular ferry services between the islands, as well as domestic flights.

Canarian cuisine includes dishes such as “papas arrugadas” (boiled potatoes) with “mojo” (sauce), “gofio” (toasted cereal flour) and “potaje canario” (stew).
