Sports in the Canaries

Over the past decade the Canaries have earned the reputation as a major European sports destination.  Professional athletes, as well as amateur sportsmen and women, come here to enjoy the clean waters and beauty of the Atlantic Ocean, an incomparable landscape and the best waves in the world.

If you love sports and want to relax in the sunshine surrounded by a breathtaking volcanic landscape, Lanzarote is the perfect destination all year round. Sail in one of the few places where the wind is guaranteed, surf in the most powerful waves in Europe and discover cycle routes off the beaten track along through dramatic lavascapes and wine-lands. The Chinjo Archipelago to the north of Lanzarote is one of Europe’s most extensive marine reserves and home to a huge variety of species, offering fantastic diving conditions. Various centres around the island provide kayak and stand-up-paddle instruction and rental.

As well as a full range of sporting activities, the island offers professional coaches, first class accommodation and organised excursions enabling you to uncover the magical secrets that the island has to offer.
