The third largest island in the Canary Islands, is also known as “Miniature Continent” due to its climatic, geographic, floristic and faunistic diversity.

But not only the weather is different from north to south, also the culture, gastronomy, the people, the landscape as well as the architectural picture. Here you will learn what you should not miss on Gran Canaria.


Things to know about Gran Canaria, why Miniature Continent?

Firstly Gran Canaria, miniature Continent, is climatically roughly divided into the wetter north and the drier south. The contrast is so high that you can love it or hate it , we personally love it all at every hidden corner.

The western part of the island has been declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO. The highest point is the 1949 meter high volcano Pico de las Nieves in the center of the island.
