Only the 3rd largest island in the Canary Island archipelago, Gran Canaria may just sound like any other holiday destination, but it accounts for almost half the population – and its not hard to see why! Known as a ‘continent in miniature,’ the dramatic range in terrain makes this island a destination like no other, and every experience unique. From impenetrable mountain ranges to leafy green forests and onto barren deserts, it’s hard to believe this island is only 1,560 km² in size!

It is the ideal location for activity holidays with room for biking, road cycling, hiking and water sports being some of the things you can try during your stay on the island.. but you’re going to need somewhere to relax, right!?
