But the islands are also the perfect place to get close to nature in a more active way: trekking, para-gliding, sailing and water sports, golf …. 365 days a year in which to enjoy just what you like a hundred percent. On the Canary Islands, you will have your best-ever holiday and you will discover an exotic location that is at the same time close in proximity and safe, with all the comforts of a European destination.
The Canary Islands are considered the southernmost part of Europe. They are located at a distance of 100 kilometres from the West African coast between the subtropical and temperate zones.
The annual average temperature is 22 degrees Celsius in the archipelago, which has a total surface area of 7,446 square kilometres and a little more than 1,700,000 inhabitants spread over its seven islands.
The Islands are of volcanic origin and their age is greater than thirty million years. Control was wrested from the native inhabitants by the Spanish kingdom of Castile in the 15th Century and since then they have been visited by travellers and merchants from many different civilisations, providing them with a cultural wealth and diversity which still persists.
