Physical activity can be part of our holidays. If you want to forget sedentary trips, now is the time to find out about sports tourism in the Canary Islands.
Are you one of those restless people looking for an active holiday? The Canary Islands offer you more outdoor sporting experiences than anywhere else in Europe. Develop your passion for physical activity and unleash the fun during your holiday. Maybe it's time to try new hobbies.
Sports tourism in the Canary Islands is one of the most exciting ways to enjoy the natural and cultural wonders of a place. In our archipelago, sports tourism has been growing steadily in recent years, thanks to an exceptional climate and the wide variety of sporting activities available.
The Canary Islands have a wide variety of water sports, such as surfing, windsurfing, kitesurfing, paddle surfing, diving and snorkelling, thanks to its crystal clear waters, the presence of constant waves on many of its beaches, the great life on its seabed and the large number of companies that encourage the learning and growth of these activities. Surfers from all over the world visit the Canary Islands in search of the best waves, especially on the north coast of Gran Canaria and Tenerife.
Windsurfing is also very popular in the Canaries, thanks to the constant winds that blow across the islands. The beaches of Pozo Izquierdo in Gran Canaria and El Médano in Tenerife are known as the best windsurfing spots in Europe.
Kitesurfing has also gained popularity in recent years, especially in Fuerteventura, which has become a top destination for kitesurfers. The island boasts some of the best kitesurfing beaches in Europe, such as Sotavento, which hosts the annual World Kitesurfing Championships.
For those looking for quieter activities, paddle surfing has become a popular activity on the beaches of the Canary Islands. It is also possible to dive and snorkel in the crystal-clear waters surrounding the islands, where a wide variety of marine species can be found. The area of Los Gigantes, where our hotels are located, is perfect for diving, snorkelling or kayaking.
In addition to water sports, the Canary Islands offer a wide variety of land-based activities for sports enthusiasts. Hiking is a very popular activity, especially on the islands of Gran Canaria, Tenerife and La Palma, which have an extensive network of trails through their spectacular mountain scenery.
Mountain biking is also very popular on the islands, especially on Tenerife, where you can find routes of all levels of difficulty, from the gentlest trails to the toughest climbs. You can find out more about the options for cyclists that we have at Landmar Hotels in this link. Remember that we have a video-monitored bicycle parking area with its own workshop.
Golf lovers will also find a wide selection of courses on the islands, with some of the most spectacular courses in Europe, such as the Real Club de Golf de Las Palmas in Gran Canaria and Golf Costa Adeje in Tenerife.
The practice of outdoor sports in the Canaries has also been favoured by its climate, which is warm and sunny all year round. This means that tourists can enjoy their favourite sports even in winter, when in other parts of Europe the weather conditions are not favourable and prevent outdoor exercise.
