Volcanic
power
The Canary Islands emerged from the sea due to powerful volcanic activity.
Blessed by a uniquely benign climate and a privileged location their
volcanic origins are still evident twenty million years later:
Lava and ash fields meeting the sea, craters and calderas sheltering wild forests,
unique species adapted to their surroundings, etc.
A beautiful and surprising landscape that is sometimes compared to the moon and never leaves visitors underwhelmed.
Hike
thousand-year
forests
Walking into Canarian forests is like jumping into a children’s book of fables. Is there a mythical ogre hiding behind the next thick clump of ferns?
In reality the luxuriant vegetation that covers the islands is due to the humid Trade Winds bringing moisture to the northern highlands of the highest islands.
However, isn’t it better to dream of myths and legends while on holiday?
And isn’t it a beautiful story that the laurel forests of the Canary Islands once covered the whole of Europe in the Tertiary Period of prehistory?
Beautiful and true: The laurel forests of Tenerife, La Gomera and La Palma are among the few places on
Earth where these stunning forests survive in a pristine state.

Closer
to the stars
The natural richness of the Canary Islands stretches high into the sky.
Their skies, considered the clearest and brightest in Europe,
are protected by law to guarantee optimal conditions for the international observatories on the islands.

From the Canary Islands, the best place in the Northern Hemisphere to observe the stars,
astronomers study the mysteries of the universe.
A wide range of astronomic activities are available in the Canary Islands for star-gazing beginners and fans,
from stargazing night walks to visits to the giant observatories in Tenerife and La Palma.
