Balloon and small plane to see the contrasts of the Canary Islands from the sky

The Canary Islands invite you to observe their unusual geography from the sky. Visitors will be able to take a balloon ride or a plane ride for a first-hand look at the sharp contrasts of a land teeming with life. In addition, at FITUR the islands will show how their privileged location and excellent climate make it possible to find one of the purest and wildest landscapes in the whole continent just a few hours from the centre of Europe.

At FITUR, the Canary Islands will show how their thousand-year-old lush forests, spectacular volcanoes, idyllic white sand beaches and breath-taking cliffs, along with small villages and traditional hamlets, create a panorama full of contrasts and great beauty. Even more so if you see them from the sky.

For the visitor, Lanzarote is like travelling to another planet, in which La Geria is one of the most unusual and surprising areas. Fuerteventura is noted for its idyllic landscapes; and Gran Canaria is spread out on a green mantle. On Tenerife, off-the-track places await discovery. And only by flying over La Gomera can visitors take in all the greatness of this unique formation that surprises by the precision of its geometric shapes.

In La Palma, the sky is the best point of view to enjoy the sea of clouds created in the Caldera de Taburiente on misty mornings. Meanwhile, the best birds-eye views of El Hierro can be found in the area of Verodal and Faro de Orchilla, where you can see the spectacular volcanic ravines of the area overlooking the sea.
