While Gran Canaria may have seen its last earthshaking eruption in the distant past, visitors should not make the mistake that the island is entirely mundane.

Its diverse variety of environments have led many to call the island a continent in miniature. Gran Canaria boasts volcanic beaches, barren deserts, and cool scented pine forests. The island is also notable for the Bandama Caldera, a 3,300-foot wide natural monument that remains as a testament to the Canary Islands’ fiery birth.
