Enjoy everlasting summer and sunshine in the Canaries

Fly from Helsinki to the Canary Islands with Finnair.

This part of the Macaronesia archipelago has been a beloved holiday destinations for decades, and for good reason. The Canary Islands are made up of four western islands – Tenerife, La Palma, La Gomera and El Hierro – and three eastern islands – Gran Canaria, Lanzarote and Fuerteventura.

The islands have a rich history, and due to their crucial geographical location they became a stopping point for Spanish conquistadors and missionaries on their way to the New World. The Canary Islands have been Spanish colonies since 1495 and the capital at the time, Santa Cruz de la Palma, was long a pit stop for those sailing across the Atlantic. The islands gained considerable wealth during the 16th century and many monumental buildings were constructed, including the Church of El Salvador. In the 19th century the Canary Islands became a province of Spain and Santa Cruz de Tenerife was made capital. During Franco’s rule tourists began to arrive, and since then tourism has become one of the pillars of the Canary Islands’ economy, along with tropical agriculture.

Each of the Canary Islands is distinctive and unique, making them a traveller’s dream. Finnair flies to destinations in the Canary Islands several times a week during the winter season from October to March.


A surfers’ paradise, Fuerteventura entices tourists with its rugged natural beauty and pleasant weather conditions all year round. It’s the oldest and second largest of the Canary Islands.
