Travel Tips for visiting Gran Canaria

A great tourist destination for a peaceful holiday 

Gran Canaria is the second most populated island of the Canary archipelago after Tenerife and is a Spanish island located in the Atlantic Ocean between Tenerife and Fuerteventura. The island is renowned for its incredible diversity of landscapes and was recognized as a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 2005. The island is lit by subtropical sunshine all year round (with a semi-arid climate bringing only 14 days of rain per year) and is known as the island of "eternal spring"
The island of Gran Canaria is like the other islands of the archipelago, a volcanic island. The volcano of the island "Volcan de Bandama" is inactive. There are beautiful walks to do at the site of the volcano. 
The highest point of Gran Canaria is the Pico de las Nieves, located in the middle of the island in the countryside. Once you reach the summit, enjoy a panoramic view of the island.
