Canary Islands-which islands and any other info you would share?

Jump to last reply

Our family has finally decided that the Canary Islands might be a great spot for us to go on a Christmas vacation.

Background-my hubs and I live in the US and our kids live in the UK so our plan was to fly to LHR and stay for a few days and then all of us will fly together to the Canaries."Kids" are 26 and 29.We are looking for 2 or 3 cities/islands to spend 12-14 days in December over the Christmas holiday.Our family loves beach combing,history,exploring new cultures/food and any natural history/parks.We are not a family that would be happy to just be at a beach resort but rather rent a car or take a ferry to explore?

My husband just hit the library to get some Canary Islands books but I really want to book the airfare as soon as possible and was hoping that people who have been to the Canaries might give me some imput on which island or city was a fav with them.We will leave out of LHR or LGW and wanted to fly into one city and out of another if possible?
Thanks for any help that you could provide us!
