Canary Islands

Canary Islands holidays

A volcanic archipelago that has exploded onto the sustainability scene. Hippies have known about the joys of El Hierro and La Gomera ‘ s wildernesses since the sixties. Mass tourism resorts may have dominated Canary Islands holidays in Tenerife and Lanzarote, Gran Canaria and Fuerteventura, but protected mountain landscapes and remote coastlines still dominate the maps. And whales dominate the waters. And these wise creatures always know the safe and sumptuous havens in the world.

Luxury yurt accommodation in Lanzarote, Canary Islands
It is a wonderful place for a family holiday with small children and a great place to recharge your batteries. (more)Alison Brookes Day
Fabulously relaxing, beautiful island, relaxed yet very responsive hosts. A great experience...Great for kids with donkey rides, missions to collect eggs every day, and to hang out with other kids on the communal trampoline, pirate boat and playground. (more)Michelle Levene
Most memorable were the rural location with an opportunity to see the landscape and vegetation. The space, both our private area around our yurt and outside where the kids were free to play on the trampoline and meet the chickens and donkey. The smallness of the resort and the uncrowded beach. The morning bike ride into the village for bread. (more)Roos Eisma
From €1225 - €1610 per week (sleeps 2-4)
Lanzarote beach house, Canary Islands
Memorable parts? Beautiful landscapes, excellent food! Great for a relaxing holiday. Tips? Hire a car to explore the island, there is lots to see, from beaches to the national park, it's well worth it! Local benefits? Yes, particularly if you stay at the Finca de Arrieta, they are environmentally friendly. Overall rating? Excellent holiday, great chance to recharge for the rest of the year! (more)Lila Caballero
From €925 - €1225 per accommodation per week
Gran Canaria walking holiday
Memorable parts? We really enjoyed the walks and being away from any crowds. Brilliant scenery. Tips? Go for the better class accommodation. Three of the hotels we stayed in were only just alright but the other three were very good. Local benefits? The economy is certainly supported by tourism. Overall rating? We had a wonderful time. (more)Catherine Lane
From £709 - £789 excluding flights
Whale and dolphin watching in La Gomera
4.5 star (more)pam telman
We had three boat trips to see the whales and dolphins. All 3 were great we saw animals every time and different ones each day. The crew were friendly and gave lots of information verbal and written. I was particularly moved by their obvious sensitivity towards the mammals. (more)Linda Hudson
The most memorable part was lots of jumping dolphins! I've taken 8 dolphin watching tours in 6 days and managed to see 6 species (Rough-toothed dolphin, Atlantic spotted dolphin, Short-finned pilot whales, Bottlenose dolphin, Common dolphin and Cuvier's beaked whale!!!) (more)Patty Tse
From €595 excluding flights
Lanzarote self catering cottage in the Canary Islands
We expected the finca to be lovely but it far exceeded our expectations. The Garden Cottage was perfect for a couple who wanted privacy but still all the facilities of the shared areas...Excellent! (more)Helen Wilson
Fantastic! Whilst we were there most of the other guests were couples with young children but as a childless couple we were catered for just as perfectly. The finca is a beautiful place, the owners are friendly and helpful, can't praise it enough! (more)Lisa Carver
Great experience, wonderful hosts and beautiful surroundings... (more)Sarah Slade
From €665 - €910 per week (sleeps 4)
Lanzarote villa accommodation, Canary Islands
Memorable parts? Going on a day trip to a remote island organised by owner Tila and swimming on an empty beach. Tips? Definitely rent a car and try arrive in day light as roads signs easily missed in dark Local benefits? Yes - completely. Overall rating? Excellent, cheap and cheerful, direct flights, lots to do...brilliant family holiday would have been equally good for a couple or friends. (more)Zara Stassin
From €1715 - €2275 per villa per week (sleeps 6)
Yurt holiday accommodation in Lanzarote, Canary Islands
The most memorable part was watching my daughter see the stars for the first time! Zero light pollution! Also, I was so surprised by how much there was to do on the island. Nice to wake up each day and know it was going to be sunny and dry! (more)Angellique Sunter
We really enjoyed the boat trip to Isle Graciosa – the operator organised it. We went on a RIB speed boat to get there, then went snorkelling, walking through the town and a beautiful lunch. (more)Michelle Christensen
Absolutely lovely. It is probably a huge cliche but seeing the children laughing and playing by themselves and with new friends meant I was more relaxed - it all just ticked over perfectly and resulted in a great holiday. (more)Kate Macnab
From €1085 - €1470 per accommodation per week
Lanzarote villa holiday, Fishermans Cottage, Canary Islands
Memorable parts? Arriving at Fisherman’s Cottage and seeing the wonderful location. Tips? It's not a holiday destination for clubbers. If you want a few days relaxation by the sea come to fisherman’s cottage. Local benefits? We shopped in the local supermarket and ate out locally. The cottage was totally solar powered with 'green' loos. So yes to both. Overall rating? 10 out of 10. It was so much better than I expected. Jill and Maria were both lovely and friendly....

From €805 - €1155 per week (sleeps 4)
Unusual accommodation in Lanzarote, Canary Islands
Very good....went bodega hopping for my birthday! (more)Chantel Dunn
Some of the most memorable parts of the holiday were: finding eggs in the hen house, lying in the bath at Fisherman's Cottage watching the sea, wine tasting at La Cantina, Teguise & at El Grifo Bodega and driving on the fabulous, twisty, unique scenic roads. (more)Georgina Tongue
The setting and accommodation, plus the very warm and helpful owners and staff. The events organised were great, paella night with live jazz and sangria, also the island trip to La Grocia was very memorable!!! (more)Chris Parr
From €665 - €910 per couple per week
La Gomera self guided walking holiday, Canary Islands
Memorable parts? Most memorable was probably the dramatic scenery of La Gomera: deep gorges plunging 3000ft down to the sea. Tips? Be prepared for walking that is more than 'moderate': this is a very steep landscape, where more than once you are climbing tiny paths up or down cliffs. 'Hiking' would probably be a better description than walking. Local benefits? We can't say, but certainly the accommodation was unpretentious but adequate. Overall rating? We enjoyed...

From €690 excluding flights
Fuerteventura stargazing tour, Canary Islands
Memorable parts? The stars by night tour was exceptional. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about astronomy. We particularly liked his storytelling style of his talk as he guided us through the night sky. This was perfectly balanced with the scientific input. Tips? Book now!!! This experience should not be missed. Local benefits? Very little environmental impact. We stood in the dark looking at stars through a telescope. Overall rating? So... (more)helen kemp
