Of the seven Islands in the archipelago, TENERIFE is the one which offers the greatest variety of contrast. Tenerife is the largest of the islands and it also boasts the highest peak. The majestic Teide Volcano which is a constant reference point to be viewed from all sides, towers magnificently at 3,718 m. (12,198 ft) above the amazing craters and volcanic landscape of Las Cañadas National Park. (UNESCO Heritage)
The variations in altitude provide a varied scenery and wonderful sensation of being able to swim in the warm ocean while contemplating, in the distance the snow capped mountain-top of the Teide volcano.
Sheer cliffs and sandy beaches, little villages that remind one of the past and modern installations ready to receive the visitors from abroad.
History and tradition are preserved in an island which nevertheless moves with the times. The traveller steps into a world completely apart from anything ever experienced before, a combination of natural magic and human endeavour.
Sun, Sand and Lava … the contrasts of Tenerife Island.
Gran Canaria is called the miniature continent for the various different landscape: desert areas, sandy beaches and mountains with lush tropical vegetation containing species of European, African and American flora.
Almost 60 of the 236 kilometres of Gran Canaria´s coastline consist of beaches of various descriptions, ranging from the impressive Maspalomas beach, where you can find 250 hectares of sand dunes right next to the sea.
As a result of the temperate climate and agreeable temperatures of the bathing waters (ranging between 18ºC during winter months and 22ºC during the rest of the year) it is possible to enjoy the beaches throughout the year.
Due to the geological formation of the interior of the island, the landscapes of the interior are very different from those of the coast, originating many and varied ecosystems on the island. This feature, together with the complicated relief and the massif (known as Los Pechos) that runs from the north-west to the south-west, are the main architects of the great variety of climatic conditions that exist on this island and, therefore, the great variety of ecosystems to which the island is host.
Gran Canaria an Island of unique encounters.

Often known as the “Volcanos Island”, the countless volcanic cones and scorched valleys are the outstanding features of a mysterious, lunar landscape whose very contemplation is a unique experience.
During the period 1730-36 its western central region underwent the longest eruption in recorded history. The earth split open and threw up new formations in the Macizo del Fuego (“Fire Massif”, also known as Timanfaya). Within a mere 8 sq. kms. 25 craters opened up. Their activity changed the face of the island, leaving whole seas of lava which the locals call “badlands”, and which you can see today, exactly the same as when the streams of lava solidified and cooled. The volcanic ash covered fertile fields, giving rise to the astounding landscape of La Geria.
Lanzarote astounds the visitor with its volcanic landscape, lovely beaches and parched earth; no less surprising is the effort and determination shown by the islanders in their struggle to survive in such hostile surroundings. They have turned farming into a work of art whose most typical example can be seen in the fields around La Geria, where green vines sprout from black lava.
Lanzarote scrupulously respects its scenic, historic and cultural heritage and is becoming an ever more attractive goal for tourists.
