Travel Inspirations - Canary Islands

Over 12 million visitors arrive on the  Canary Islands each year drawn to the promises of everything from hiking and diving to dining and dancing. Besides the year-round mild temperatures and stretches of golden, white and black beaches, there are a host of other reasons to visit any one of the islands. Pine and Laurel forests, subtropical growth and startling lava formations mark the domain of hikers and nature lovers, whilst water sports enthusiasts will find exhilaration in the giant waves and underwater caves or by boat or jet ski. Meanwhile on the land, the ancient villages and towns lay studded with the relics of aboriginal life. History and culture lovers can get their teeth into the beautiful architecture, ethnology museums and craft galleries, as well as constant signs of communities which still live side by side with the land and sea. And whilst the individual or the couple can revel in it all, the Canary Islands offer fun for all the family with a range of top quality theme and water parks. Tenerife showcases urban party life and world class theme parks next to history, culture and outdoor activities, the latter including hiking for which the gargantuan Mount Teide – the third highest volcano in the world – provides the ideal stage;  Gran Canaria has a pulsating metropolitan area and capital, complete with a thriving gay scene, as well as coastal resorts and huge sand dunes;  La Gomera is a smaller sanctuary providing a more grassroots feel perfect for hiking and lazing on beaches;  Fuerteventura is famed for its endless bright white beaches flanking clear turquoise water, both on which beach and water sports enthusiasts practice their hobbies;  Lanzarote ’s landscape shows harmony between the former activity of countless volcanic peaks and the current trend of modernisation;  La Palma , or ‘La Isla Bonita’ is the Canaries’ Lost World, with lush green forests and banana plantations and wild volcanic formations studding the steepest island in the world; finally,  El Hierro is the smallest island of the group. Once thought to be the end of the world, this peaceful and unpretentious nature spot is packed with stunning scenery and nature, hiking trails and diving spots.
Due to its clement year-round climate, the Canary Islands are a popular destination for golfing holidays. Usually annexed to luxury hotels and resorts, the courses range from relatively simple par-3 affairs to challenging 18-holers played on by some of the world’s best golfers. Whilst contributing significantly to the island’s economy, golf courses are also controversial with ecological groups that question their sustainability due to the water shortage in the archipelago. Golf course owners retort that the greens are maintained using water from local desalination plants but the issue remains contentious. Out of all the islands, Tenerife is the pick of the bunch in terms of choice. In its south, predominantly dotted around the Playa de las Américas, there are several courses where you can tee off in style surrounded by local indigenous flora and lush panoramas of green and blue. Tenerife's closest rival, Gran Canaria boats the oldest and the most prestiges golf club of the Canary island, whilst the newcomers in Fuerteventura and Lanzarote are keeping up with the competition. There is one golf course in the La Gomera island, surrounded by lush and green. Green fees can range from €40-80 depending on quality whilst most courses also offer club rental for around €25.
The Canary Islands are known for its miles of sandy beaches and crystal blue sea. Water sports such as surfing, sailing and diving are therefore particularly high in demand. However, venturing inland, there are a variety of activities to keep the holiday makers equally happy. Motor sport enthusiasts will be thrilled to find go-karting facilities in the island of  Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote and Fuerteventura. Whether you enjoy the thrill of zooming through the tight corners, beating your personal best times or just want a friendly race with your fellow travelers,  Canary Islands offers excellent venues for go-karting. The go-karts are usually fitted with internal combustion engines and the equipment to reach the Canary archipelago’s maximum speeds of up to 80 kmph. Most karting circuits are built outdoor with some karting clubs offering both indoor and outdoor venues for the karting enthusiasts. There are often two different go-kart circuits on offer: the main circuit (also known as senior circuit) where adults can ride on karts with up to 270 cubic centimeters for a race, and the secondary circuit (also known as junior circuit), is reserved for younger go-kart drivers. The main circuits are usually about 1km kilometer long, and wide enough for an exciting overtaking while the secondary circuits are shorter and less demanding. There are three go-kart centres on Tenerife:  La Esperanza in the north,  Arona in the south and  Fañabé, a little further west from  Arona. Gran Canaria offers two go-karting centres, both located just a few miles apart in the south of the island. The Gran Karting Club can be found near the town of Tarajalillo and the other is located further west, near the resort of  Maspalomas. The former also has a karting club in  Lanzarote island. Lanzarote also boasts two karting facilities: one in the southeast of the island, located between  Arrecife and the resort town of Puerto del Carmen, and the other in San Bartolomé. There are also two go-kart centres in the island of  Fuerteventura, one just outside of the capital Puerto del Rosario and the other is located in the south of the island in the small town Tamaretilla. The island of La Palma does not have a fixed kart circuit, but every now and then organises special go-kart races; while the two smallest of the Canary Islands,  La Gomera and  El Hierro, do not currently boast go-kart facilities. The usual go-kart centre opening hours are from 09:00 to 21:00 during summer with slightly shorter business hour during winter time. Prices vary depending on the kart model, duration of the race (or number of rounds) and number of participants. Expect to pay around €20 per adult on a main circuit for 7 rounds with a Superkart, and lesser for kart models with reduced cubic centimeters for (younger drivers) in the secondary circuit.
