Canary Island Experience

Gran Canaria, Tenerife & La Gomera
 
This Holiday in a nutshell
  • self-guided, three-island walking discovery
  • discover three different islands on foot
  • option to ascend to Spain’s highest peak
  • easy access between islands by ferry
  • sightseeing on Tenerife with your included hire car

Any archipelago is worthy of thorough exploration, and this is certainly true of the Canaries. Each island has its own character, flavour and atmosphere, making it a worthy destination in its own right; but by combining two, three or even four of the islands you get the chance to enjoy the full Canary Islands Experience. The spectacular physical nature of each island has been created by volcanic activity over many centuries, and is influenced by each island’s proximity to the vast continent of Africa. This two-week adventure explores three of the best, travelling from Gran Canaria in the east to the central island of Tenerife before ending in the west on La Gomera.

From the time of Columbus, the Canary Islands have been a pivotal trading post for the New World, bringing exotic flora, riches and multi-cultural influences to bear, all of which have fashioned them into the fascinating melting pot they are today.
     
Jack Montgomery, Buzz Trips

The rich diversity of a whole continent seems contained within the spectacular island of Gran Canaria, where rugged ridges and deep ravines radiate out from the mountainous centre to the coast – emerald with pine and chestnut groves, and richly clothed in aromatic shrubs from golden artemisia to sea lavender. The panoramic views stretch some 70 miles to the towering peak of El Teide on Tenerife, your next destination. With expanses of black sand, green pine forests, red rock formations, crimson lava fields and white clouds which sometimes billow like a skirt around the waist of El Teide, Tenerife is an island of many different colours. The walking here is immensely rewarding, as it is on La Gomera, your final island. From the peak of Garajonay, mountains alternate with lush green valleys down to the coast of steep cliffs and a glittering blue sea, ancient tropical forests and groves of palm trees lending a special enchantment to this pretty island.
