Set off the northwest coast of Africa, the Canary Islands are a Spanish archipelago known for their black and white sandy beaches, year-round warm climate, diverse landscapes, and vibrant culture. The seven main islands are a hit among travellers thanks to their unique natural beauty and rich history. Exploring the Canary Islands by car provides a flexible and comprehensive way to experience each island's distinct charm and character.
Starting with Gran Canaria, the island's diverse terrain includes mountains, desert, forests and beaches, offering a piece of the continent on a miniature scale. Next is Tenerife, the largest island, home to the majestic Mount Teide volcano, the highest peak in Spain. If you're craving calmer environments, the tranquil islands of La Palma, La Gomera and El Hierro, boast dazzling landscapes characterised by their forests, mountains and serene beaches. Fuerteventura and Lanzarote at the eastern end of the archipelago, fascinate with their unique volcanic landscapes and beautiful beaches.
Distances between and on the islands are quite manageable by car, allowing you to comfortably explore at your own pace. For example, Tenerife spans just 102 km (63 miles) from east to west, while Gran Canaria is about 50 km (31 miles) from north to south. However, bear in mind that the mountainous nature of the islands can mean winding roads and longer driving times. But the breathtaking views make up for it, delivering a road trip experience you won't soon forget. Be sure to follow local driving laws and respect the environment along your journey.
