Natureat the tip of your fingers

The Canary Islands not only have idyllic beaches, they are also home to ancient forests, starry skies and volcanoes that conjure up landscapes from other worlds. It couldn't be easier to enhance your holiday with an excursion to the highest peak in Spain or camping in a National Park, as most of the natural attractions are easily accessible and offer a multitude of services.


The island's great biodiversity means they are home to 3,000 species of flora and fauna that can't be found anywhere else in the world. This is why 40% of the territory in the Canary Islands is protected: there are seven biosphere reserves, three marine reserves, and four spectacular National Parks where you can experience the rich ecosystems in the Canary Islands for yourself.

National Park

The Teide is an ideal destination for the whole family. This volcano can be reached by cable car in only eight minutes, or on foot by means of a six-hour route (which requires wearing suitable clothing and footwear and using sun cream). The view from the top is spectacular. This is the third highest volcano in the world, and from its highest point you can see the whole of Tenerife. And sometimes on clear days you can also see the other islands.

National Park

The Montañas de Fuego in Lanzarote are Mars on Earth. 5,000 spectacularly beautiful hectares, unchanged by vegetation or human activity. You can discover the purity of this red and black earth on foot or by bus, but the most entertaining way is on the back of a dromedary.

National Park

The National Park takes its name from the legend of Gara and Jonay, the Canary Islands' own Romeo and Juliet. This leafy laurisilva forest has an abundance of moss and ferns, and when you stroll around its network of trails you'll feel you've been transported back in time to a prehistoric era. The number one site in the National Park is the area crossed by the El Cedro stream: an ancient forest of intense greenery and with outstanding biodiversity.

National Park

Located in the centre of the island, this National Park is probably the reason it's known as Isla Bonita, or the beautiful island. In the heart of La Palma you can stroll through forests of Canarian pine, see an unusual waterfall of colours and enjoy the night sky as you've never seen it before from the Roque de los Muchachos rock.

The walks
with the best views

The great thing about mild temperatures all year round is that you can explore all the natural attractions in the Canary Islands any time you want. In a single walk you can see how the landscape changes in the space of just a few kilometres, from beach to desert to forest… Let the magic guide your steps as you walk along these trails, adapted to suit all levels.

And when you need to make a stop on the route, you can do so in one of the many viewing points you'll find throughout the Canary Islands. Taking a break will not only allow you to enjoy the views but will also give you a new outlook on Canarian architecture and the work of César Manrique.

in the pure air

After an enjoyable walk through nature there's nothing like relaxing in one of the peaceful Paradors and rural hotels in the Canary Islands. There's no noise and disturbance, and you'll get a great night's sleep far from the hustle and bustle of the city, alone with your dream in the midst of nature. And when you wake up, you'll find a delicious breakfast of local produce awaiting you to give you the energy to continue exploring the beautiful landscapes in the Canary Islands.
