The Canary Islands began to emerge from the ocean depths as a consequence of magmatic activity. The process of formation began in the Miocene Age, about 23 million years ago. Bathed by the cool blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean, the Canary Islands ooze all the magic of an archipelago which is unique in the world by virtue of its subtropical diversity and wealth.
La Palma, Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura and Lanzarote, all spectacular and all very different, bewitch the visitor. Feel the sun on your face and the breeze in your hair, scurry straight to an idyllic beach resort or quiet rural retreat, not to be heard from again until the morning of your flight out. The Canary Islands will give you your best-ever holidays in an exotic location with all the comforts of a European destination.
