Perhaps you are wondering about travelling between Gran Canaria and Tenerife, Gran Canaria and Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria and Lanzarote or another combination. This is possible but unfortunately there isn’t one website where you can book the lot! You should book accommodation for each island and take the time to do some research. Hiring a car is the best way to go. That does not mean you can take the cars on the ferries because most car rental companies don’t allow you to take their cars between the islands, but you can hire a car at each new place. And the prices for car hire in the Canary Islands? Very cheap!
Book your flights or ferries a month or so before you travel. There is plenty of available and often you can’t book more than a few months ahead anyway. The exception is if you are travelling over a weekend. These flights and ferries do fill up.
Tenerife is very similar to Gran Canaria with the exceptions of having Mount Teide, the highest point in Spain, and a great zoo. Lanzarote is another volcanic island with fascinating architecture and caves to explore in the north. La Gomera and La Palma are little green islands and El Hierro is the furthest one to the west but unless you like scuba diving, fishing or doing nothing you will be bored! Fuerteventure has beautiful beaches and is one of my favourites for that reason.
Lanzarote to Fuerteventura or Fuerteventura to Lanzarote: By ferry only
Gran Canaria to Tenerife or Tenerife to Gran Canaria: By ferry or flight
From Tenerife to Gran Canaria, La Gomera or La Palma: By ferry or flight. The ferry from the south of La Gomera is good.
These are the best links to research flight options:
These are the links you need for the ferries:
I hope the above links help. Don’t forget you can contact me (post a comment below) if you have any questions but bear in mind if it’s about the flights or ferries I probably won’t be able to tell you much more than what you find on the websites because I’m not a travel agency! You can ask anyway – I’ve taken the ferries between Gran Canaria and Tenerife and Gran Canaria and Fuerteventura, and I’ve flown from Tenerife to Gran Canaria, so I might be able to help! 😀
