The Canary Islands, a Spanish archipelago off the coast of northwestern Africa, are rugged volcanic isles known for their black- and white-sand beaches. We especially liked walking in the towns and talking with the locals.

We spent about 7-8 days in Canary Islands – visiting Lanzarote, Gran Canaria, La Gomera and Tenerife. We loved every island we visited – Lanzarote for its unique landscape, Gran Canaria for the sand dunes, La Gomera for incredible hiking opportunities, Tenerife – for a wide range of travel options.

Lanzarote fantastica tranquilla e meravigliosa. Tenerife il carnevale travolgente. Fuerteventura il deserto che finisce nell'oceano mai visto un mare più turchese ❤️
