Travelers can save even more money by booking optional arrangements, such as airport transfers, local sightseeing tours, and excursions at the time they book their Canary Islands package. All package prices are per person, double occupancy, based on date of departure. Departure taxes, airport security fees, and airline fuel surcharges are additional.

Warm, welcoming and exotic, the Canary Islands offer vacationers a blend of tropical resort atmosphere and Spanish culture. In addition to their glistening beaches, they offer a host of recreational activities, such as world-class golf, hiking and biking, and a vibrant nightlife. They are located off the northwest coast of Africa, about a two-hour flight from mainland Spain. Prevailing trade winds favor them with perpetually mild weather that is perfect for golf and tennis enthusiasts. Each island is like a mini-continent, with its own unique flora and geography  from lush tropical gardens to dramatic volcanic fields.

“The Canary Islands have always been a favorite holiday destination for savvy Europeans, but relatively few Americans have vacationed there,” commented Robert Paris, Co-president of Spanish Heritage Tours. “We’re very pleased to be able to make this unique and beautiful part of Spain even more accessible to Americans by providing an affordable and exciting alternative to the Caribbean and Hawaii.”
