Senderistas, Canary Islands

Tips for the Region

The Canary Islands are unique for their rugged beauty, black and white sand beaches and charming seaside villages. There is much to explore from Sahara-like sand dunes to lush pine forests and rocky lunar landscapes. Each island has its own special landmarks and attractions that make them special, in Tenerife the active volcano Mt. Teide dominates the landscape while in Lanzarote the Timanfaya National Park is made up of rolling hills and mountains covered entirely in volcanic soil. On La Palma we recommend the Caldera Taburiente National Park for its volcano tours and in Fuerteventura the stunning beach Playa de Sotavento de Jandia.

  • From Lanzarote Airport to Timanfaya National Park: 15 miles in 22 minutes
  • La Palma Airport to Caldera Taburiente National Park: 17 miles in 32 minutes
  • Fuerteventura Airport to Playa de Sotavento de Jandia: 44 miles in 1hr
  • Tenerife South Airport to Mount Teide: 30 miles in 1hr 7 minutes

Important Cities

Santa Cruz, Tenerife

Santa Cruz is the administrative capital of the Canary Islands and a major transport hub with its port linking Europe with Africa and the Americas. It is home to some impressive contemporary architecture including the Auditorio de Tenerife, an expressionist arts complex with an iconic profile that has come to symbolize the city. The city is also an important cultural center for the islands, we recommend the Museum of Fine Arts for its brilliant paintings from Madrazo, Ribera and Peter Coeck.

Puerto del Rosario, Fuerteventura

With a low population don't expect any bustling cities on Fuerteventura but do expect to be charmed by this small harbor town. The harbor area is the oldest part of the town and has many Canarian style houses that are worth a visit. Puerto del Rosario is near to Fuerteventura airport and is a handy spot for grocery shopping if staying in the nearby resorts.

Arrecife

Arrecife gets its name from the rocky reef that covers the beach which is located within the city. Like many of the major towns on the Canary Islands Arrecife is also an important port town with many cruise ships operating here. The town is also well connected to the rest of the island by major highways LZ1, LZ2 and LZ3. We highly recommend taking a walk around the Charco San Gines salt-water lagoon in the heart of the city. Another beauty spot is the Playa del Reducto, the main beach in Arrecife complete with golden sands and palm trees.


Carnaval, Canary Islands

Climate, Cuisine & Travel with Children

Climate

Most of the Canary Islands have a hot desert climate, it is good to be prepared with plenty of water. The islands are also known for their many small microclimates, in the mountains and inland you can find lush vegetation and large pine forests.

Cuisine

Tapas is known locally as enyesques and is extremely popular as is seafood from the rich seas around the islands. Mojo originated on the islands and is classically served on potatoes that are cooked in their skins in salted water. There are many goats on the islands and so fans of goat cheese will be pleased with the many variations.

Traveling with Children

The sand dunes are an endless source of fun for children along with a huge amount of water sports on the beaches. Snorkeling is particularly popular due to the island's rich marine life. Siam Waterpark in Tenerife is great for thrill seekers with a raft rides and massive slides. A boat ride to Isla de Lobos is also recommended, children will be enchanted when arriving on this tiny uninhabited island.
