Visitors to the island of Gran Canaria are able to enjoy an enormous variety of landscapes as well as countless microclimates, which is why the island has become one of the world´s most attractive tourist destinations. It is on account of these characteristics that Gran Canaria has earned its epithet, namely "the miniature continent".
No matter where you go on the island, the temperatures remain unusually pleasant throughout the year. However, in a single day, it is possible to travel to the South of the island, where you can enjoy the warm temperatures of the southern coastal areas; to explore the midlands, where the climate is more temperate; to traverse the subtropical valleys and forests; and even to travel to the highest peaks of the island, where you may be lucky enough to witness the first snowfalls of the winter.
You will encounter endless possibilities for tourism in every corner of Gran Canaria. Every enclave on the island derives a special quality from the island´s orography, the trade winds and the ocean currents.
