The Canaries are a stunning group of volcanic islands with year-round warm weather, golden beaches, rugged landscape, and lively culture. Lanzarote is home to many safe, sheltered beaches ideal for families, and lots of outdoor activities like hiking, surfing, kayaking, and more! Tenerife, the largest and most populated of the four islands, has exceptional cities and small fishing villages. It’s also home to one of the world’s largest carnivals, the Carnival of Santa Cruz de Tenerife. Gran Canaria and Fuerteventura are more off-the-beaten-track options, but each come with their own fabulous resorts and untarnished natural beauty. With so much to choose from, there’s something for everyone in the Canary Islands.
