  2. Different lifestylesTenerife and Gran Canaria are characterised by a similar lifestyle, as they are the two islands with the most urban character. Tenerife stands out for being more mountainous, greener and having a cooler climate. The other islands are ideal for those seeking a quieter lifestyle away from the hustle and bustle of the big cities. For example, on La Gomera, there are communities of Germans who love hiking, naturism, the mountains...etc.
  3. The leisure offerThe different islands are home to a large number of island museums, which have archaeological material and human remains from the prehistory of the archipelago in their collections.

It is celebrated on all the islands and in all their municipalities, the two most popular of which are those of the two Canary Island capitals: Santa Cruz de Tenerife and Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.
  4. Beach and mountain sportsThe great diversity of the Canary Islands allows you to do mountain sports, if that's what you like best, such as hiking, climbing, rural tourism, etc. The sea is another important point when it comes to nautical sports, such as windsurf, surfdiving, sailing etc.
