National Parks and Natural Spaces of the Canary Islands
One of the great charms of the Canary Islands are the national parks and natural spaces. While in the rest of the world they are closed or have limited opening hours during the winter months due to the extreme conditions, in the Canary Islands you can enjoy them every day of the year with wonderful temperatures.
It is almost impossible to list all the wonderful natural places in the Canary Islands, as the richness of our land is almost infinite. However, you cannot leave the islands without visiting its 4 national parks:
Spain’s highest peak, on our island Tenerife, is also integrated in the most visited National Park in the Canaries, Spain and Europe, the Teide National Park. It is a source of pride for the people of Tenerife and all Canary Islanders to have this spectacular and must-see enclave.
In the volcanic land of Lanzarote, you will find the Timanfaya National Park and its “Fire Mountains”, a volcanic landscape not to be missed.
The two remaining national parks are located on two of the smaller islands, La Gomera and La Palma, where you will find the Garajonay National Park and the Caldera de Taburiente National Park: the first of these has the largest area of laurel forest of all the islands, as well as being the youngest national park in the Canary Islands; and the second of these forms and ends at the second highest point in the Canary Islands after Mount Teide, called the Roque de los Muchachos.
But the fact is that our islands not only have 4 large national parks, but also an enormous range of possibilities full of Nature Reserves such as Las Dunas de Maspalomas or Azuaje in Gran Canaria, well-known rural parks such as the Valle Gran Rey in La Gomera, the Parque Rural de Anaga in Tenerife or Natural Monuments such as El Roque Nublo in Gran Canaria and the Barranco de Guayadeque in Gran Canaria. The Roque de Garachico in Tenerife or the Natural Monument of Volcanoes in Teneguía at La Palma, all of them examples of some of the natural spaces that the Canary Islands have to offer.
