Gran Canaria – holiday surrounded by the sea and the mountains and great experiences
Created by Mondo for Finnair
Watching a whale spout water high up in the air right next to your boat, or snorkelling amongst schools of the most colourful fish. A holiday in Gran Canaria can be much more than a beach holiday spent sunbathing or swimming in a water park.
The capital of the island, Las Palmas, is perhaps the most legendary of the holiday destinations on Gran Canaria – but it is also a 500-year-old authentic Spanish university city. The best restaurants, trendy bars and festivals in Las Palmas provide a great setting for a city break in a warm climate all year round. On a city break in Las Palmas you can witness the real daily lives of the islanders.
The landscape of inland Gran Canaria is dominated by majestic mountains, which are best enjoyed on a hike along the many meandering foot paths. Those into aquatic sports will love spending their holiday in the waves of the Atlantic Ocean: one-day surfing courses are a great way even for beginners to get started. The water on the coast of Gran Canaria stays warm throughout the winter.
