Do you know why it is said that Gran Canaria is a small continent in miniature?
It is because of its changing landscapes with dunes, mountains and beaches. The dry south contrasts with the green pine forests of the mountainous interior
and it is not unusual to find snow on the peaks, while on the beaches below visitors sunbathe.
The island of Gran Canaria is located in the centre of the Canary archipelago, between Tenerife and Fuerteventura.
It is an island close to Europe and Africa, which enjoys almost 60 kilometers of beaches on 236 kilometers of coastline, under a mild sun that manages to maintain an average temperature of 21 degrees Celsius.
This beautiful island can be reached in just a few hours by plane from the main European capitals:
Lisbon 2 h, Madrid 2 h 45 min, London, Rome and Paris 4 h 20 min, Stockholm 5 h 15 min, Berlin 5 h 30 min.
