Intead, tourism of excellent quality has been developed with care to ensure that the islands beauty is not lost for ever.

Ports of Las Palmas

The extraordinary landscape of the mythical island LANZAROTE, with its three hundred volcanoes, has been classified by UNESCO as a World Biosphere Reserve. The nature here is unnerving. Each corner opens up views where nature itself has created wonders of architecture, such as Los Jameos del Agua or The
Cave of Los Verdes. The buidings created by the island´s inhabitants also show he meeting beetween nature and the art of Man.

GRAN CANARIA is know as the “Miniature Continent“, since in a short space of time, the visitor can travel from the dry landscape of the south, to the leafy greenness of the north, or the mountains at the heWart of the island. The south offers the atractive golden sand beaches of San Agustín, El Inglés and Maspalomas and charming, tiny harbours of fishing villages such as Puerto de Mogán, Puerto Rico and Pasito Blanco. The green farming area to the north
and centre of the island awaits you with its pretty country villages, proudly displaying their churches, local markets and craftwork. Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, the capital of the island and the largest city of the Archipielago, has a beautiful old quarter, Vegueta and Triana. The shopping centre offers a vast range of goods at very attractive prices.

The peaceful island, FUERTEVENTURA, stretches over the Atlantic like a magic desert, circled by warm, white sands and bathed by a sea of the deepest turqoise in the Archipielago. Puerto del Rosario is its capital, and on the opposite coast is Betancuria, the most significant historic site on the island. The chromatic splendour of the landscapes is dazzling as we encounter the Nature Park of Las Dunas de Corralejo. All the beaches breathe an air of absolute tranquility.

Ports of Tenerife

As you travel through TENERIFE, the landscape undergoes sharp contrast: the heat-baked south with its awe-inspiring wildness or the green, fertile north. A network of motorways link Santa Cruz -the capital and the largest town- to the most important areas of the island. The city offers a wide range of attractive entertainment facilities and it is close to the La Laguna city, an Unesco World Heritage Site. Discover the beaches of Las Americas and Los Cristianos to
the south, Puerto de la Cruz to the north or climb one of the highest peaks in Europe, El Teide, an Unesco World Heritage Site. Which is a thousandyear old volcano that reaches a height of 3.718 m. and constitutes a panorama of incredible, out-ofthis world beauty.

LA GOMERA, a land of contrasts, is one of the most beautiful of the Canary Island. The capital is San Sebastián, a city abounding in historical an artistic monuments it was the Christopher Columbus last port before the America’s discover. Leaving the capital, you reach the Valley of Hermigua, a vast banana plantation al the foot of El Cedro mountain. From the lofty peak of Garajonay, a panorama of the whole island opens up, with deep valleys carpeted with thetrees of an extraordinady rain forest: the National Park of Garajonay, which protects luxuriant vegetation of unimaginable splendour and is Biosphere Reserve.

Lovers of nature will find their private paradise in LA PALMA, the whole island is a Biosphere Reserve. Its privileged climate and majestic beauty has given rise to the nickname “The Fair Island“ . La Caldera de Taburiente is a natural land crater -28,000 m. in circumference and over 700 m. deep- which has bred unique plant and animal life. The clear, limpid skies led to the International Scientific Community choosing the island as the site for one of most important Astrophysics Observatories in the Northern Hemisphere. A quaternary forest,“Los Tilos”, is found in the north of the island.

Considered as the end of the world in the ancient times, the point througth which the Meridian Zero passed up until 1883, when it was moved to Greenwich, EL HIERRO, the smallest and the most western of the Canary Islands, is a bastion of peace and quiet.
A land of contrast, with green forests, volcanic landscapes and features like El Sabinar, trees whose strange and twisted forms have been sculpted by winds. The best sea beds in the world that delight divers all year round are found here.
