Spain is a country located on the Iberian Peninsula and bordered by Portugal to the west, France to the north-east and the Mediterranean Sea to the South and East.
The marvellous weather in Spain, its geographic location, beautiful coastlines and varied landscapes have made Spain one of the most popular holiday destinations in the world.
Its capital city Madrid features winding streets all heading to gather in the centre of the city, Barcelona needs no introduction, the Basque country is to the North and then of course there’s the sunbathers mecca – the Costa del Sol.
As a country with thousands of miles of coast and numerous island groups such as the Canaries and Balearic's, travelling by ferry is deeply rooted into Spanish culture. Europe’s most modern ferries and well-known ferry companies are in operation providing services from Spain to the UK, Italy and North Africa as well as crossing from the mainland to the Canary Islands, the Balearic Islands and numerous inter island connections.
Gran Canaria is the second most populous island in the Canary Islands, a Spanish archipelago in the Atlantic Ocean.
A ‘continent in miniature’, Gran Canaria is locally known. This is due to the huge variety of landscapes and micro-climates, with vast mountains, long beaches and green ravines all coming together on this 1,500 square-kilometre landmass.
A third of Gran Canaria is classified as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, but elsewhere, you will find a rich history in the cosmopolitan capital of Las Palmas, a charming hilltop village in Tejeda and a network of superb cycling routes winding through the valleys.
Travelling by ferry is a convenient way to explore the Canaries, and, given Gran Canaria’s central location, it’s within easy reach from nearly every other island. There are also some long-distance connections from mainland Spain which are operated by a couple of excellent ferry companies.
