The Canary Islands

The Canary Islands are one of the most popular holiday destinations any time of the year. Thanks to their closeness to North West Africa they have little rainfall, with the summer months seeing the very best of the weather. The seven islands; which make up the Canary Islands; are just a four and a quarter hour flight from London and are a popular destination all year round even in the winter months when temperatures are above average compared to the UK.

Tenerife is the largest island and is dominated by the volcanic Mt. Teide; which is a popular attraction for hikers, who need to be aware that in the winter months it can be quite windy with heavy snow sometimes closing the mountain. The diversity of the landscape makes outdoor activities extremely popular whether you want to explore the many winding trails, or scuba dive in the beautifully clear warm waters, where you will be mesmerised by the hundreds of varieties of colourful fish.
