After enduring another long, cold and gloomy winter, this escape to the Canaries provides the welcome relief of sunshine, sand and beautiful island scenery. Your time at the trio of Canary Islands you visit can be as restful and relaxing as you wish; at each you’ll find plenty of places to take the weight off and enjoy the warm sun, whether it’s outside a local bar or at one of the many inviting beaches. On La Gomera, you may even opt to indulge yourself at the Olsen family-owned Tecina Hotel. [ReadMore]

If you wish to experience an exploration adventure, there are plenty of sights and highlights awaiting discovery amongst the islands’ scenic interiors. You could scale Mount Teide for unforgettable views of Tenerife’s volcanic landscapes; see the natural wonders of San Antonio Volcanic Park, such as the Teneguia Volcano, up-close on La Palma; and seek out the volcanic sites of La Gomera too. Not far from the Canaries, there’s also a visit to the floral Portuguese island of Madeira; in Funchal, perhaps ride the cable car and watch people ride toboggans down the capital’s hills, or take in lush-green scenery uncovered via the unique levada trails.
