What to do in the Canary Islands for Easter Week

The Canary Islands are a TOP destination to travel to at any time of the year. Thanks to its incredible landscapes, tropical climate, gastronomy and culture, this unique place leaves its mark on everyone who visits it.

During Easter, the islands invite you to enjoy a few days where you can combine adventure and tradition in your getaway.

 

Water adventure in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria

 

The islands are bathed by the incredible blue of the Atlantic Ocean, making them an ideal destination for exploring unique seascapes. From Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, through Lanzarote and Tenerife to El Hierro, the islands have numerous adventure activities to practice in the sea, such as paddle surfing, guided kayak routes, or snorkelling in the crystal clear waters.

Las Palmas de Gran Canaria offers you a unique landscape where you can practice all these types of nautical experiences. Without a doubt, the activity par excellence is a guided tour in a transparent kayak, which allows you to observe all the marine life without the need to get out, although you can always choose to dive with a snorkel to appreciate the beauty even better.

Flying over Tenerife

 

Tenerife, the jewel of the Canary archipelago, is known for its incredible geographical diversity, offering endless opportunities for nature and adrenaline lovers. Active tourism is a way of life on this island, and what better way to get to know every corner than flying over the Teide National Park.

You will be able to soar in the way you like most, either paragliding or paramotoring, and enjoy exploring the charms of the island from the heights. An experience that we are sure you will want to repeat!

Discover El Hierro, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve

 

The lesser-known jewel of the archipelago offers the opportunity to immerse yourself in authentic natural beauty, declared a Biosphere Reserve. You can get to know this unique and preserved environment in two different ways.

On the one hand, you can paraglide over cliffs and forests, where the air currents will carry you through spectacular landscapes. On the other hand, you can venture into the Nature Reserves for some climbing. On these climbing routes you will discover diverse landscapes, from forests to lava fields as you explore the rich variety of flora and fauna.

Lanzarote, active tourism destination

 

Its volcanic nature combined with the waters of the Atlantic Ocean make Lanzarote an ideal destination to enjoy all kinds of activities and adventures.

You can choose from hiking through volcanic landscapes, surfing on golden sandy beaches, diving in the marine reserves, kayaking along the cliffs, paragliding over volcanic landscapes and climbing on volcanic rocks. An endless number of options not to be missed.

Processions and tradition

 

As in the rest of Spain, religious traditions during these dates are typical throughout the Canary Islands. Throughout the islands, you can enjoy the different processions that take place during the week, which are of great cultural beauty. Some of the most important are to be found in Puerto del Rosario, in Fuerteventura, where the brothers and sisters walk through the streets in the Procession of the Encounter.

Most of these religious events take place in the evening, so you will have the opportunity to combine and enjoy many activities during the day.

Relax on the islands visiting La Graciosa

 

For many, this week is a much needed break from routine, so an ideal option is to visit La Graciosa.

From the Port of Órzola, in Lanzarote, you can board the ferry that will take you to the island. Here you can enjoy a real paradise where time seems to stand still, enjoying the tranquillity of the surroundings.

Gastronomy as the icing on the cake

 

The Canary Islands are known for their local gastronomy and delicious traditional dishes. Without a doubt a plan that you can easily combine with those mentioned above.

Furthermore, if you are in Tenerife, we recommend you not to miss one of the most famous and visited wine routes in Spain. On the island, you can enjoy up to five denominations of origin such as Abona, Tacoronte-Acentejo, Valle de G├╝├şmar, Valle de la Orotava and Ycoden-Daute-ISora.

Tourism and sustainability in Spain

 

As well as the Canary Islands, the rest of Spain has places and destinations full of nature.

At RocRoi, we are aware of the importance of caring for and preserving these natural sites, in order to continue exploring each and every one of them through sport. Therefore, we work every day to offer you a wide variety of destinations and outdoor adventure activities, always aiming to ensure safety and sustainability in every action we take.
