Nature, Canary Islands, Spain
Ever since the 18th century, the Canary Islands and
 their fantastically diverse landscapes have attracted
 the attention of geographers and scholars from all
 over the world. Today, the islands continue to attract
 hundreds of thousands of nature lovers each year.
It's impossible to talk about a typical "Canary Island
 landscape". All the islands are vastly different from each
 other and within each individual island there is a wide
 variety of landscape; from the beautiful volcanic
 desolation of Timanfaya in Lanzarote to the snows ofTeide
  in Tenerife, the green jungle of La Gomera's Garajonay, or
 the traditional charm of the Caldera de Taburiente in La
 Palma.
The Canaries are also home to some unique species of
 flora and fauna; the likes of which you won't find
 anywhere else on the planet.

 The Canaries are widely recognised, the world over, as
 having an incredible wealth of ecologically valuable
 areas; and all these treasures have been carefully
 preserved
You'll find them in both the populated areas like
 Gran Canaria and Tenerife as well as the more remote
 islands of El Hierro and La Palma.

 The natural beauty of these islands is protected by the
 "The Canary Islands Natural Spaces Act" which came
 into effect in 1994. Large percentages of the island's
 territory are protected by the act. It has strict
 guidelines on which natural assets and features are to
 be conserved.
Canary Islands, Spain
There are seven islands in total: Gran Canaria,
 Fuerteventura, Lanzarote, Tenerife, La Palma,
 Gomer and Hierro along with a few very small
 ones: Alegranza, Graciosa, Montaña Clara, Roque
 del Este, Roque del Oeste and Lobos.
Although located within a very short distance of each
 other, all the islands are radically different in terms of
 landscape and culture.
There's Volcanoes, lush green rain forests, sand
 dunes, white sandy beaches, black volcanic beaches,
 tourist resorts, natural parks, nightlife, tradition and
 art that's all very very different depending on which
 Island you are on.

 The Canary Islands also known as the "island of Dogs"
 are named after the large dogs (Canes) that were
 initially found living on the islands.
The Greeks and Romans called them the "Happy
 Islands" and the "Garden of Hesperides, Atlantida".
 Some historians believe that the islands" original
 population (Guanches) are from the legendary
 continent of Atlantis. Curiously, they are tall with
 white skin...

 The Canary Islands became part of the Spanish
 kingdom in 1496. Christopher Columbus stopped here
 on his way to discover the "new world".
Landscape in Canary Islands
The islands belong to Spain although they are not
 part of the European Union. They avoid all European
 customs charges and have some of the best beaches in
 Europe.
