1
St John's Eve

Experience the magic of the night while you celebrate the summer solstice. Join the locals who light bonfires on beaches and flock to enjoy firework displays. According to tradition, they dance around the fire, burning everything bad to be purified. If you are in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, the Foundational Festivities take place in the city.

Corpus Christi
carpets

This is an important celebration in the Canary Islands. On the Feast of Corpus Christi, usually a Thursday, handmade 'carpets' are created in the streets of the different towns. Traditionally, the procession travels through the steets over the carpets, which are made using flowers, plants, sand and salt. In La Orotava, Tenerife, this tradition is a very important tradition, since the main carpet in the town square is made with volcanic sand of many colours, brought straight from the Teide National Park. It is a spectacle you mustn't miss if you visit the Canary Islands in June.

Tower of jewels
in all its splendour

One of the archipelago's most stunning natural sights can be seen just before summer begins. The tower of jewels or echium wildpretii bursts into flower in June, with delicate, fleeting, magical splendour. These branchless bushes grow up to two metres high and splash the Teide National Park with their stunning red blooms. On other islands, towers of jewels come in colours from blue to white, with a dizzying display of beauty. Don't miss this fabulous photo opportunity!
