Island For…

  • Hiking

A question guaranteed to cause heated discussions among the walking fraternity. Tenerife, La Palma and La Gomera will have to fight it our for the hiking crown.

  • Kitesurfing & Windsurfing

The Canary Islands have some of the best kite- and windsurfing conditions in the world, but it’s Fuerteventura that really gets the wind up people’s sails.

  • Surfing

The Canaries aren’t called the ‘Hawaii of the Atlantic’ for nothing. Most of the islands have great surf, but it’s Lanzarote that’s the centre of the scene.

  • Scuba Diving & Snorkelling

If you think tiny El Hierro looks good from dry land, just wait until you immerse yourself in its waters.

  • Cycling

Lanzarote and Fuerteventura appeal for their empty and comparatively flat roads, while hardcore cyclists flock to Gran Canaria's central mountains.
