What to expect in Gran Canaria
With spectacular landscapes from sandy beaches and sweeping deserts to lush pine forested hills and soaring mountain ranges, Gran Canaria is not only a bargain package holiday party destination but a delight for walkers and outdoor explorers too. Gran Canaria boasts luxury hotels and family resorts but also local family run B&Bs and romantic self-catering apartments. Whether you come to enjoy the non-stop hedonistic clubbing on offer or to lace up your hiking boots and stride off into stunning green gorges and through local villages, Gran Canaria has something to offer every visitor. All of this can be enjoyed in blissfully warm year-round sunshine. Temperatures hardly drop below 16 degrees even in winter, while in summer they can reach up to 35. January nights may require a jumper but it would still be possible to enjoy an alfresco cocktail. Prices are cheap in Gran Canaria. A bottle of wine can be bought for €5* and a dinner for two for €35*.
