Canary Islands are the perfect holiday destination any time of the year. Depending on the season you visit us, you’ll discover many different landscapes. Spring truly suits Gran Canaria; anyone who knows it will agree with this.
At Dunas Hotels & Resorts we love to welcome visitors who crave for discovering all those places they have read about the island, and so, today, we’d like to suggest a very authentic Spring plan to you:
The Botanical Garden Vieira and Clavijo is a place that no one staying in the Dunas Hotels & Resorts during springtime should miss.
The Canary Islands are rich in nature, landscapes and countless species that live just in this precise environment. That's why a place like this is truly the mirror of an island like Gran Canaria.
The Botanical Garden, or El Jardín Canario as natives refer to this place, is a space of thousands of square miles that leave no one indifferent.
Nature, indigenous flora and fauna, spaces and species perfectly taken care of and from which to learn about on your visit. The Botanic Garden Viera and Clavijo is a very special place. One can breathe peace, be truly grounded in Nature and knowledge any time of year; but in spring life is blooming so the beauty of this place is even greater: A wonderful explosion of colours, scents, Life ...
One of the things we like most about this place is that you are able to get to know everything on your own and walk at your own pace, or hire a guided tour. It is superb! We highly recommend a visit to this great Garden to all those who’d like to wonder at the sight of a place you would have never thought you were going to find on the island.
The Botanical Garden is located in the Guiniguada ravine, in the Tafira area (north-east of Gran Canaria). Opening times vary according to the time of year:
- From October to March - 9.00 a.m. to 6.00 p.m.
- From April 1st until September 30th - 9.00 a.m. to 7.30 p.m.
If apart from discovering this stunning Garden, you’d like to have a bite surrounded by Nature you ought to go to Jardín Canario’ restaurant and have a rest enjoying this unique view.
It is a perfect plan for a family day, a romantic one, or going with a group of friends; and if what you are looking for is some quiet contemplation within the heart of Nature, this is also the place to be!
So, add the Botanical Garden to your route through Gran Canaria in the springtime, you will never regret it!
