How many times have you heard that Canarians have an open, happy character? It's no surprise given that they live in a climate with an average temperature of 22ºC with no extreme cold or excessive summer heat. It's enough to give anyone a sunny disposition.

There's scientific proof that climate has an effect on our state of mind: Feeling the sunshine on our skin, breathing in fresh air, walking barefoot on the sand or gazing at a sky full of stars are moments that fill us with energy and refresh us from inside.

If not, ask the inhabitants of the Canary Islands.

The words that

Islands climate are

Open air
lifestyle

The Trade Winds and thermal inversion they create over the Canary Islands prevent clouds from forming and give us rain-free summers and winters with an average of only three rainy days per month. This is perfect for an outdoor lifestyle and, along with the wide range of accommodation and attractions, means that you can come and do almost anything you want on the beach, in the mountains, in a lush forest, in the sea, etc.

Many studies and millions of tourists from all over the world consider the Canary Islands to have the best climate in the world. The mild temperatures, with little variation throughout the year, very few days of rain and the long sunny days make them worthy of this distinction.
