Car hire in The Canary Islands
Discover The Canary Islands with an Avis car
Drive in style up along the steep twists and turns of the Bandama Caldera to witness some of the most spectacular views that Gran Canaria has to offer, glide across the glittering coastline of Tenerife’s Puerto De La Cruz to Los Silos, or stand out against the marvellous volcanic splendours of Lanzarote’s Timanfaya National Park. The wonderfully constant mild temperature of these paradisiac islands makes them a great holiday destination. Why not look into a stay at one of the popular resorts such as Puerto Del Carmen or one of the luxurious golf and spa resorts, be it under the slopes of Tenerife’s La Tiede Mountain or amongst the stunning coastal views of Lanzarote’s shoreline, you’re guaranteed a comfortable journey.
Shopping and Eating Out
Driving purely in search of some premium retail therapy?, park up at Tenerife’s La Villa Centro Comercial for a large selection of high street boutiques, or for the chance to locate unique local merchandise, find Lanzarote’s Teguise Market on your Sat Nav for a genuine view into the classic Spanish market scene. More of a fine dining aficionado?, why not park up at Timanfaya’s El Diablo restaurant to savour delicacies cooked over the heat of the volcano, or for a more authentic traditional Spanish feast, head for a culinary excursion to try some of the famous Spanish Tapas in Fuerteventura’s Antigo Café del Puerto.
For the thrill seekers and distinguished explorers, the Canary Islands have a vibrant array of attractions to offer, such as Tenerife’s Loro Parque, the Moonlight Cinema in Gran Canaria – Europe’s only permanent outdoor cinema -, and of course there is Siam Park in Tenerife, declared as one of the best water parks in the world.
History enthusiasts, steer your way through the historic town of Fuerteventura’s Villaverde to explore the 1 million year old Volcanic cave Cueva de Llano, or for a more interactive historical experience, take a rural jaunt to Gran Canaria’s Sioux City which was originally built in 1971 as a film set for a wild west movie. Finish off your historical expedition with a journey back through time and space to Tenerife’s Museum of Science and the Cosmos established in 1993, believed to be the most important museum dedicated to science and astrology in all of Spain.
