A short break from your daily routine
Neither golden autumn nor the white of winter – the last days of November are hanging over the calendar just like a sad grey rain cloud. If you don’t feel like doom and gloom, leave your daily routine and the hot water bottle behind and escape to the islands of eternal spring. On the Canaries, you can recharge your batteries with plenty of sun.
Sailing with the trade winds around the Canary Islands
Beautiful days of sailing are guaranteed, when the Azores high sends steady north-easterly trade winds
to the Canaries. At comfortable four to five Beaufort and agreeable temperatures of around 20 degrees, the windjammer explores the sunny shores of Gran Canaria, La Gomera and Tenerife over a long weekend.
Magic forest and moonscape: two famous national parks
These two UNESCO world natural heritage sites could hardly be more different: While the evergreen cloud
forest Garajonay at the heart of La Gomera offers fascinating scenery made up of rivers, waterfalls and dense moss, Tenerife’s Las Cañadas del Teide national park is extremely dry. With tall lava tongues and bizarre rock formations, its volcanic landscape looks almost like the surface of the moon.
