The Canary Islands

from the sky

The privileged location and the excellent climate of the Canary Islands means that in just a few hours from the heart of Europe, you'll find one of the wildest and most unspoiled landscapes on the whole continent. Their leafy forests of ancient trees, their spectacular volcanoes, their idyllic beaches with their pale yellow sands and its imposing cliffs –together with their small villages and traditional farmsteads– all make this a land full of contrasts and exceptional beauty. And even more so if you see it from the sky.

The Canary Islands offer a range of different options for observing its unusual geography from the sky. Float above it in a hot-air balloon and experience the immensity of the islands from the air, or take a flight in a light aircraft and see with your own eyes the dramatic contrast of these islands' teeming life.

floating among clouds
