Tip for a trip during Semana Santa

During the Semana Santa in Sevilla streets are full of people, celebrating this special week. For some of you it could be a bit stressful and you would rather go out of the city. You can use this time to take a small vacation and travel to Canary Islands.

Canary Islands consist of 7 islands - La Palma, El Hierro, La Gomera, Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura and Lanzarote. Canary Islands offer many options for travelling to all the islands and being able to travel between them quickly and easily. The distances are so small that it won´t take you long to get from one place to another. Furthermore, there are direct flights from Sevilla to Canary Islands.

Canary Islands offer many beautiful beaches, but in this time the weather is not so warm to take a dip, BUT, it can be ideal to go for a surf! With neoprene you won´t even notice a bit colder water. There are many amazing spots across Canary Islands for surfing, such as Los Lobos, Hierro , Playa de Cotillo in Fuerteventura, La Fitenia, Billboards or Spanish Left in Tenerife, or Morro Negro in Lanzarote.

While in Tenerife you should definetely visit Teide, volcano, which is the highest point in Spain. You can get there by cable car, which will offer you views of the Canary Islands´ largest national park .

Cheese and wine are two of the most characteristic products of the Canarian cuisine. The best way to discover all these flavours is to visit some of the wineries and cheese shops of the Canary Islands. Besides just tasting, you can go and see the different stages of production.

In Gran Canaria you can take a ride on the camels´ back across Maspalomas Dunes - a massive dune field rising up next to the ocean, with sand hills as high as 12 meters.

In Tenerife Loro Park you can see a stunning variety of wildlife, including mammals, birds, fish, reptiles, gorillas, jaguars, and some talented killer whales and then go beneath the surface in a series of wraparound aquarium exhibits.
