Ready to have the warmest winter of your life?
The Canary Islands is one of the favourite destinations for tourists. This is mainly due to the enviable climate the archipelago has, with average temperatures throughout the year ranging between 19º and 25º degrees. This and other factors are what tip the balance in favour of travelling to the Canary Islands in winter.

If you want to escape the cold, leave your coats, umbrellas and woolly hats behind, you've come to the right place, because in the following lines we're going to show you the best plans for a winter holiday in this little paradise in the middle of the Atlantic.
3 Reasons why you should travel to the Canaries in winter
Thanks to the subtropical climate they enjoy and their location close to the African coast, you can always enjoy the sun and beach. The Canary Islands are ideal for a short winter getaway with family or friends.
Here are 3 reasons why you should travel to the Canary Islands in winter.
1. Good weather all year round
Temperatures on the islands range from 15 to 25 degrees Celsius - even in winter! You can spend Christmas or New Year's Eve literally on the beach, taking a dip even at night. You won’t be making a snowman here, but rather a sandman, as it hardly ever snows here (except occasionally at the top of the mountain). Make your friends and family jealous by showing off with photos of yourself outdoors and on the beach in the middle of winter.
2. Spectacular food
If you come to the Canary Islands leave your scarf and winter jacket at home and bring your sandals and flip-flops, sun cream, shorts and a desire to try the best typical Canarian Christmas and winter dishes by hopping from bars, pubs, to restaurants and cafeterias.
3. Enjoy a different kind of winter
In the low season there are fewer people, so you can enjoy the beaches and mythical places on your own! Forget the crowds and noise and enjoy the almost deserted villages, landscapes and beaches.
The Canary Islands offer a great variety of plans, among them the most important ones are the fiestas and the unique landscapes. Beaches, sun and good weather almost 365 days a year: warm up under the Canarian sun! Visit many places with a unique and very different nature and let yourself be surprised by the natural diversity of the Canary Islands - perfect for sports lovers!
