About Canary Islands

An Expressions tailor-made holiday to the Canary Islands includes a selection of four and five star beach resorts which cater for families and couples alike. The Canary Islands can be found sitting off the western coast of Africa in the Atlantic Ocean. Warmed by year-round sunshine, the Canaries feature otherworldly landscapes of volcanic craters, lava deserts and cute coves with black-sand beaches. Meanwhile, steep hillsides and terraced farmland gives way to peaceful fishing villages and characterful old towns. In the west of the archipelago are the mountainous islands of Tenerife, La Palma, El Hierro and La Gomera. Expect black-sand beaches and buzzing resorts along Tenerife's coastline whilst the interior is dominated by the dormant Mount Teide volcano. Meanwhile the three smaller islands remain relatively unspoiled, with landscapes including terraced hillsides, craggy cliffs and subtropical rainforests. The eastern isles consist of Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura and Lanzarote, each with a unique atmosphere and plenty of attractions. Gran Canaria is home to sprawling resorts as well as stunning scenery with forests, mountains and sand dunes; Fuerteventura is an arid and sparsely populated island with a desert-like landscape and long stretches of white sand beaches; while Lanzarote is a rugged island where lava flows have solidified to create a lunar landscape which contrasts with sandy beaches and green valleys. Due to their location in the Atlantic Ocean just 60 miles away from the coast of Morocco, the Canary Islands' cultures fuse African, Latin American and European influences, creating a unique identity which is quite different to that of the Iberian Peninsula. Contrary to popular belief, there is no want for authenticity here....

Gastronomy of the Canary Islands

Due to the geographical location, gastronomy in the Canary Islands incorporates elements of Spanish, African and Latin American cuisine. A staple of Canarian cuisine is fish, which may be grilled, baked, salted or dried in the sun, along with shellfish which is also abundant. Bananas and tropical fruits are all grown across the islands, whilst rum, Malvasía wine and goat's cheeses are also produced. Key ingredients include ‘Gofio’ (cornmeal which is used in bread and stews), ‘Mojo’ (a sauce which contains either coriander or chili peppers and is frequently served with fish and meat) and ‘Papas arrugadas’ (a kind of jacket potato which is cooked in salt water). Typical dishes include ‘Sancocho’ (boiled fish served with potatoes), ‘Puchero canario’ (a hearty stew made with meat and vegetables) and ‘Bienmesabe’ (an almond cream dessert).

Climate of the Canary Islands

The Canary Islands' year-round sunshine, clear skies and spring-like temperatures make them a suitable holiday destination for all seasons. Winters are mild with average temperatures of around 17 degrees, whilst summers are warm with temperatures of around 24 degrees. Most of the islands are cooler and wetter in the northeast thanks to the trade winds which prevent the temperatures from getting too hot in the summer.
