The Canary Islands are an African archipelago in the Kingdom of Spain consisting of seven islands of volcanic origin in the Atlantic Ocean. The islands are Tenerife Gran Canaria Lanzarote La Palma La Gomera El Hierro Fuerteventura and La Graciosa they are located off the north-western coast of mainland Africa (Morocco and the Western Sahara). The nearest island (Fuerteventura) is 108 km from the northwest mainland African coast. They form an autonomous community of Spain.

Geography


The islands form the Macaronesia ecoregion with the Azores, Cape Verde, Madeira, and the Savage Isles. The seven main islands are volcanic in origin. The Teide volcano on Tenerife is the highest mountain in Spain, and the third largest volcano on Earth. All the islands except La Gomera have been active in the last million years; four of them (Lanzarote, Tenerife, La Palma and El Hierro) have historical records of eruptions since European discovery. The islands rise from Jurassic oceanic crust associated with the opening of the Atlantic. Underwater magmatism commenced during the Cretaceous, and reached the ocean's surface during the Miocene. The islands are considered as a distinct physiographic section of the Atlas Mountains province, which in turn is part of the larger African Alpine System division.

According to the position of the islands with respect to the trade winds, the climate can be mild and wet or very dry. Several native species are laurisilva forests.

Four of Spain's thirteen national parks are located in the Canary Islands, more than any other autonomous community. In the early 90's, there were only five Spanish national parks, four of them being the Canarian parks, and the other one Doñana. The parks are Parque Nacional de la Caldera de Taburiente, Garajonay National Park, Teide National Park and Timanfaya National Park.

Wildlife and Nature


With a range of habitats, the Canary Islands exhibit diverse plant species. The bird life includes European and African species, such as the Black-bellied Sandgrouse; and a rich variety of endemic (local) species including the:

* Canary
* Graja (endemic to La Palma)
* Blue Chaffinch
* Canary Islands Chiffchaff
* Fuerteventura Chat
* Tenerife Goldcrest
* Madeira Firecrest
* Bolle's Pigeon
* Laurel Pigeon
* Trocaz Pigeon
* Plain Swift

Terrestrial fauna includes gekkos (such as the striped Canary Islands Gecko) and wall lizards, and three endemic species of recently rediscovered and critically endangered giant lizard: the El Hierro Giant Lizard (or Roque Chico de Salmor Giant Lizard), La Gomera Giant Lizard, and La Palma Giant Lizard. Some endemic mammals, the Lava Mouse and Canary Islands Giant Rat, are extinct, as are the Canary Islands Quail and Eastern Canary Islands Chiffchaff.

El Hierro - Centred

Walking holidays in Spain - Canary Islands -   El Hierro
          - Centred - Click Here For Larger Image El Hierro the least known, and most westerly, of the Canary Islands. In fact it was the most westerly point of the ‘old world’. Hitherto it has escaped mass tourism, and is free of  giant hotels and apartment complexes. The population is only 10,000, giving a very different feel to the other Canarian islands. The Herrenõs are fiercely proud of their island and although they are generally against mass tourism they are very welcoming towards visitors who come to appreciate the environment, such as walkers, naturalists and divers.

Gran Canaria - Centred

Walking holidays in Spain - Canary Islands -   Gran Canaria

Two things make Gran Canaria distinct from the other Canarian Islands. Firstly, the reservoirs that are abundant in the mountainous region nestling in the valleys giving important water supply to the inhabitants and a refreshing vista for the walker. Secondly, there are the ancient settlements and fascinating troglodyte villages built by the deeply religious Guanche about 4000 years ago, and many are still occupied!

Tenerife - Centred

Few places can match the natural beauty of the Canary Islands where one of the islands Tenerife has become a mecca for enthusiastic walkers. Tenerife is an island of contrasts from the volcanic moonscapes of the Teide National Park to the high cliffs ridges and deep valleys of the coastal mountain ranges. The island boasts the highest mountain in Spain Teide at 3718m. Due to its southern latitude its slopes can be walked for most of the year. The coastal ranges of Anaga and Teno rise abruptly from the sea. Teno hosts the giant and dramatic sea cliffs of Los Gigantes (610m). Anaga has steep mountain ridges offering magnificent views across the ever present Atlantic Ocean. Midway between the two is the Orotava Valley with its pine clad slopes. All of this is well away from the crowded tourist resorts for which Tenerife is renowned.
