A short impression of these extraordinary Islands.
Gran Canaria is best known for its beaches, but has much more to offer. As soon as you explore the Interior you will be surprised by the impressive rock formations and beautiful views. Outside the tourist areas are many villages with small restaurants where you can enjoy the typical Spanish specialties.
Tenerife is, with good visibility, at large distances (often more than 100 km!) identified by Spain's highest peak, the Pico del Teide. A visit to this nature reserve is more than worth it. It looks like a lunar landscape! On the other hand, on the northeastern side of the island is a nature reserve with lots of vegetation and steep cliffs where beautiful walks. The most famous Valley, at the city of picturesque village of Masca is located on the west side of the island. In short, a special island with something for everyone.
La Gomera has hardly beaches but that is amply compensated by the beautiful nature and many hiking routes. In the center of the island is a kind of microclimate where to see primeval forest is a particular. It is very moist and the mosses grow rampant along the trunks of the trees. Many Laurel trees, but also Heath. The Erica is here 12 meters high! The town of Valle Gran Rey is known as the hippie village of the island. A small but cosy place where you, in the port or at anchor, a beautiful view of the steep cliffs, the beach and the village.
