The Canary Islands are a Spanish archipelago in the Atlantic Ocean, just off Morocco in North Africa. Formed by volcanic eruptions and shaped by hot desert winds, they are comprised of 7 main islands.

When powerful seismic forces lifted these islands out of the ocean millions of years ago, they sculpted landscapes of unimaginable beauty. So spectacular are the Canary Islands that for centuries, it was believed that this archipelago formed the peaks of the legendary lost city of Atlantis.

Today, the Canary Islands are a magnet for sun seekers, beachcombers and adventurers from all over the world.

With, 160 miles of coastline, 150 beaches and a climate that feels like it is always spring, the island of Fuerteventura is a perfect place to slow down and relax.

A short ferry ride to the west of Fuerteventura is Gran Canaria – a place of ever changing climates and vistas.

This island abounds with otherworldly landscapes that have been inspiring visitors for centuries. Take a hike to Pilancones Natural Park. The spectacular plateaus and cool ravines in this area are around 12 million years old.

  1. I love to travel and I especially love to stay in the Canaries, most recently Fuerteventura and Lanzarote where we had amazing vacations. I've made loads of videos of both of these beautiful islands, please take a look at my channel if you would like to see them 🙂

  2. Nice video on a gorgeous archipelago (especially Gran island), but the Mexican narrator and the flamenco music are completely out of context.

  3. Just got back from Gran Canaria and Lanzarote…..both were absolutely fabulous! I will most definitely return when I have more time. The people were wonderful as well! 🙂
