Canary Islands – a treasure spread between 7 islands

How difficult can it be to choose only one destination out of the 7 lucky islands!

… in the end, the question is, which is the best choice for my next holiday?

Our recommendation: “Lanzarote”

Why Lanzarote?

The beauty of its nature is spectacular. The water and fire elements are inseparable on this island.

Many describe it as an “enigmatic island”, with landscapes from another planet, contrasts of colors that emanate light and transmit a sense of peace that many cannot describe and that makes them return again and again to the island of volcanoes.

Lanzarote is the youngest island of the 7 Canary Islands with an area of 845.94 km² and located only 140 kilometers from the coast of Africa, it has an average temperature of 21º that makes it enviable. It was declared a biosphere reserve by UNESCO in 1993. La Geria, a wine-growing area unique in the world, shows the symbiosis between man and nature.

Thanks to the legacy of Cesar Manrique, Lanzarote´s favorite son, this island offers, with its unique architecture of white houses and buildings that respect the environment, a privileged infrastructure that is not found in the neighbouring islands. Cesar Manrique dedicated his life to making Lanzarote a paradigm, using only the elements that nature offered him to show us that man and nature can live in harmony. The Art and Culture Centers of Lanzarote are unique in the world thanks to Cesar Manrique.

Here we present a couple of elements that make the difference between Lanzarote and its sister islands:

  • Lanzarote’s infrastructure allows tourists to enjoy an offer in active tourism that is not found in La Palma, La Gomera or El Hierro for example.
