Along with the omnipresent feeling of calm and relaxation, fun is always guaranteed in the Canary Islands. And clear proof of this is the variety of amazing parks you can visit.
Water parks where fans of water rides can cool down in fabulous pools or take a go on giant slides; botanical gardens where nature enthusiasts can admire the incredible local flora and fauna; zoos that are among the best in the world; and theme parks for a real adrenaline rush… Unique, exciting experiences for a fantastic time in the Canary Islands.
With an average annual temperature of 24 ºC, you’re always in the mood for a swim in the Canary Islands. Aqualand Costa Adeje in Tenerife, Aqua Park in Lanzarote, Aqua Water Park in Fuerteventura and, of course, Siam Park, the biggest water park in Europe and widely considered the best in the world, are home to many water rides, with pools for all ages and dizzying slides to guarantee the utmost fun.
Those who want a different kind of excitement are in luck because both young and old can enjoy exhilarating activities such as ziplining, walking across a rope bridge or viewing the horizon from the top of a lit-up big wheel. The theme parks of the Canary Islands guarantee strong emotions in the city centre, like at Holiday World in Gran Canaria, or in the middle of nature, like at Cactualdea Park, the largest cactus park in Europe and also in Gran Canaria.
Zoos and botanical gardens
For those that want to connect with nature, there are plenty of parks spread around the islands. Spectacular areas where you can observe the local fauna and flora in great detail, like Loro Parque in Tenerife, the best zoo in Europe and one of the best in the world, and Wildlife Oasis in Fuerteventura. A few years ago, they were joined by the Poema del Mar Aquarium in Gran Canaria, one of the most impressive aquariums in Europe and inspired by the work of the Canary Islands artist Néstor Martín-Fernández de la Torre.
Many more attractions to discover
There is no greater natural spectacle than the one found in the scenery of the four national parks, the seven biosphere reserves and the three marine reserves in the Canary Islands. The archipelago is full of places of extreme beauty, such as the volcanic landscapes that look like something from another planet or the beaches and coves scattered along the coasts. If there’s an abundance of anything in the Canary Islands, it’s stunning natural landscapes full of contrasts.
