More about Gran Canaria
Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is considered the capital of the Canaries.
It’s a major cruise ship stop, known for its duty-free shopping and white sandy beaches.
In the north, you’ll encounter steep mountains, with green cliffs and gorges, while in the south it’s drier and flatter.
Filled with charming villages, one we recommend visiting is beautiful Tejeda, up in the hills in the center of the islands.
The Canary Islands are a volcanic archipelago situated off the coast of northwestern Africa and consist of the islands Tenerife, Lanzarote, Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura, La Palma, La Gomera, and El Hierro.
These lesser known Spanish islands have a perfect year-round climate – not too hot, not too cold, just right.
