From island to island with freedom: the Canary Islands

The Canary Islands are situated in the blue Atlantic Ocean, with their tropical temperatures and different landscapes, such as volcanoes, forests, and the beautiful beaches of fine sand.

The archipelago, which is made up of the islands of Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura, La Palma, Lanzarote, La Gomera and El Hierro, is an ideal place for those who love the sea, the fresh and beautiful nature and the villages, which are rich of folklore.

It is also the perfect place for those who love nature, for those who prefer the excursions to natural parks, and also for those who want to taste the typical Canarian gastronomy taking part in folkloric events of rare intensity.

The cuisine of the Canary Islands is particularly interesting because it is very much influenced both by the European tradition and by the African and tropical cultures. Most of the dishes are based on a combination of local flavors and continental tastes.

Tenerife is the largest island of the archipelago of the Canary Islands, and it has a particular cultural and artistic heritage, and also an high tourist flow thanks to the beauty of its landscapes and to the many opportunities of fun.

Fuerteventura is the closest island to the African coasts and has many desert landscapes, with the sun that beats down and the winds that blows impetuous, it is the favorite destination for lovers of windsurfing. It is also one of the most interesting islands from a cultural point of view, with Gran Canaria, where there are many historical and religious buildings with its colonial charm.
