A true paradise in terms of natural beauty, sustainable living and perfect climate, the Canary Islands have adopted the moniker, “The Happy Islands”. Made up of seven larger islands and six smaller ones, some historians even believe the legendary island of Atlantis was located here. Landscapes vary drastically from island to island so massive mountains, deserts, tropical forests and spotless beaches all intermingle and overlap, providing a wide range of stimulating activities. Laze on beaches of fine sand, trek through caves enclosed by petrified lava, visit a papaya plantation. Hop on a camel for an eco-friendly journey through a nature reserve before descending on a submarine excursion into Atlantic waters. A region of great biodiversity; many measures have been put in place to ensure the environment is treated with respect. Even the skies above the Canaries are protected, making the clean, clear expanse perfect for star-gazing.
