The direction of the winds, the Gulf Stream, the relief and latitude all contribute to the climate of Gran Canaria, a volcanic island which is often described as a miniature continent as it has a variety of micro-climates which vary from east to west, and from sea level up to the highest points.

The Canaries are well known throughout the world, partially because of their mild climate, which might be one of the best in the world. Gran Canaria’s weather is characterised as mainly mild, with a comfortable spring-like temperature which rarely too high to be uncomfortable.

Temperatures vary between the summer months 26 ºC and 28 ºC (79 – 82 °F), although often exceeding 30 °C (86 °F), and in the winter months temperatures only drop to between 22 ºC and 24 ºC.

Sometimes, you can see snow on the highest point, yet just a few kilometres away you will find tropical temperatures.
