OUR CANARY ISLANDS ADVENTURES
WHEN TO GO
Due to their sub-tropical climate, the Canary Islands are a popular winter escape for mostly Europeans as even in January, temperatures will still hit around 20 degrees over the day and, unless you visit the Northern exposed regions, most areas are sunny and dry. Summers are hot and dry nearly anywhere around Tenerife, but you will find cooler temperatures in the higher areas. As the sun gets very strong throughout the summer months June - August, the island is mainly visited by beach and sun worshipers while springtime and autumn are more popular for activity breaks.
WHAT TO BRING
If you are planning to travel in the summer month, be sure to bring a lot of light clothes as even nights will be warm. Make sure to bring a sun hat, sun glasses and lots of sun lotion as the high standing sun can get to you. Proper hiking boots are necessary for walking around Teide and the Anaga region as the terrain can be rocky and steep. Always pack a warm jumper for visiting Mount Teide for star gazing at night.
HOW TO GET THERE
Being a popular tourist destinations, there are direct flights from nearly anywhere all over Europe, including many lowcost airlines. Access from overseas would go through Madrid or other hubs in Europe.
