Canary Islands

Experience the varied scenery of this Spanish archipelago, where pine-forested peaks overlook lava fields and gentle waves lap at golden-sand beaches.

The Canary Islands are comprised of diverse landscapes usually found oceans apart. Located off the coast of West Africa, the archipelago features superb beaches, subtropical national parks, volcanic ridges and Sahara-like dunes.

Hop between islands to see the unique character of each, from indulgent waterfront resorts to hiking trails that wind through deep ravines and laurel rainforests. See colossal cliffs drop into the surging ocean and stroll along peaceful arcs of soft sand.

A good place to start your adventure in the Canary Islands is its capital city, Las Palmas, on the island of Gran Canaria. This thriving city has picturesque winding streets and a magnificent waterfront promenade along the Playa de Las Canteras. More gorgeous scenery can be found at the beach of Playa del Inglés. Check out the surf schools on the north of the island to get some tips on finding the best breaks on Gran Canaria. 

Go on a daytrip to the monumental sand dunes in Maspalomas, explore the historic tree-lined neighborhoods of Valsequillo or trek to the cave villages of Barranco de Guayadeque.

Tenerife, the archipelago’s largest island, represents the Canary Islands’ rich heritage with its fascinating museums and monuments. The large resort of Puerto de la Cruz has a charming old town by the fishing port and is surrounded by fine black-sand beaches. Go windsurfing on the island of Fuerteventura or explore the island coastline on a charter boat trip.

Explore the paradisiacal island of La Gomera, which is renowned for its network of hiking trails. This island is characterized by rugged ravines clad in remnants of prehistoric vegetation. Try the island’s specialty tapas, such as roasted pork and regional cheese. Hear locals communicating across the ravines using a unique whistled language.

The Canary Islands are easy to reach via plane to major airports on Tenerife and Gran Canaria. Hop between islands on ferries or charter yachts and catch local buses around each island. Rent a car to reach the more remote areas of the islands. The high season is between December and February, with another peak in the summer months of July and August. 

The Canary Islands are a year-round destination for discovering the diversity of an entire continent in miniature.

Q: Should I book a car while on vacation in Canary Islands?

A: Get a rental car and travel about like a local, not a tourist. Slide behind the wheel and discover everything that Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and Santa Cruz de Tenerife have to offer, from big-name attractions to off-the-beaten-path treasures. Your own set of wheels is also a must if you intend to road trip around the region of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria - Cuenca del Guiniguada or farther afield. Cheap Car Hire in Canary Islands? We've got you covered.

  • Las Palmas (LPA-Gran Canaria): 1,364 international flights per month.
  • Arrecife (ACE-Lanzarote): 985 international flights per month.

Q: What are the most popular types of hotels for a vacation to Canary Islands?

A: Most people choose to bed down in apartments when in Canary Islands. But you don't always have to follow the crowd. You'll also find hotels, villas and private vacation homes in abundance here, and you can book them all with Expedia.

Q: What does a Canary Islands vacation booking with Expedia include?

A: It depends on what kind of escape in Canary Islands you want. Bundle a flight and hotel, or hotel, car and flight, or car and hotel — or any of these individually. If you like, you can also add on some experiences and attractions.

Q: What is the best way to save money on my vacation to Canary Islands?

A: A package deal takes the stress out of traveling, and it can save you a pretty penny to boot. Flights, Hotels, Activities, Rental Cars — Expedia has it all. Bundle the lot and start thinking about what you can do with that extra spending money.

Q: What are the best things to do in Canary Islands?

A: Many visitors flock to Port of Las Palmas and La Vegueta when in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. Poema del Mar Aquarium is also worth a visit.

Accompong Village, Archeological Museum and Anaga Natural Park are well worth a visit if Santa Cruz de Tenerife is where you'll be basing yourself.

Last but not least, if La Laguna is the only place you're stopping this time around, visit Centro BTT Valles del Oso, Vilaflor and Tourist Information Office of San Cristóbal de la Laguna.
