The Carnary Islands



Say hi to my quest blogger, Nikolai Rudenko, a freelancer in advertising and marketing who enjoys travel and photography and sharing experiences with friends  Please enjoy his travel post on The Canary Islands, with information about Lanzarote and Tenerife.   It sure makes me want to pack my bags and head out for some adventure.  Look at those views!

The Canary Islands: Top Outdoor Excursions
If you’re looking for a summer break that involves more than just lazing on a perfectly formed beach, the Canary Islands would be the perfect choice for package holidays in the sun. While they’re certainly inundated with fabulous beaches, they also have plenty of outdoor excursions on offer which will bring you closer to the vast and breathtaking landscapes of these volcanic isles. Whichever Canary Island you choose to base your holiday on, there’ll be an outdoors adventure for you.



Lanzarote: Timanfaya National Park
Located on the southwest coast of the island, the Timanfaya National Park is a sight to behold. While you may be used to its beaches, watersports and tourist-clad resorts, a short coach ride will bring you closer to a side of Lanzarote you have never witnessed before.
While there hasn’t been any major volcanic activity recently, its volcanic past can be seen clearly as you cast your eyes over the barren landscape, with steam geysers being of particular interest to tourists.

Tenerife: Mount Teide
Mount Teide is a volcano in the heart of Tenerife’s Teide National Park. Considered to be sacred to the island’s aboriginal people, the volcano can be reached via public road, with a cable car ride taking avid visitors to its summit.
Gran Canaria: Maspalomas Sand Dunes
Located in the popular resort of Maspalomas on the south coast of the island, these sand dunes are vast, expansive and well worth a visit. Choose to explore them via a unique camel ride, or hop on a dune buggy to kick up some sand dust for an exhilarating trip!



Alternatively, the island of Fuerteventura was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2009, and provides plenty of fabulous outdoor excursions including the unique black sand beach at Ajuy. Wherever you choose, you can be sure to be within easy reach of memorable outdoor adventures that will add another facet to your Canary Island break.

Cyprus

Say hi to my quest blogger, Nikolai Rudenko, a freelancer in advertising and marketing who enjoys travel and photography and sharing experiences with friends  Please enjoy his travel post on Cyprus, it sure makes me want to pack my bags and head out for some adventure.



Captivating Cyprus

There's so much to love about Cyprus. For starters, it's the mythical birthplace of Aphrodite, the legendary goddess of love, and it's clear that she left her mark here. This captivating island is a beautiful place that's home to glorious seascapes, gorgeous golden sands stunning mountains, so as destinations go, Cyprus holidays are pretty close to perfect.

Anchored in the Mediterranean Sea, Cyprus offers a wonderful climate that regularly peaks in the early 30s during the summer season, and hovers around 20-25 during spring and autumn. Even during the winter months, temperatures on this lovely sunny island make t-shirts and shorts a possibility while the rest of Britain is shivering in winter's icy grip.

So, sunshine aside, what else can you expect from Cyprus holidays? Its resorts are plentiful and enormously varied. You've got party-mad Ayia Napa for non-stop nightlife and energetic clubs that will keep you dancing 'til the small hours. This is a great spot for 18-30s style getaways and, as well as a buzzing nightlife, it's also home to some cracking beaches. So make sure you pack your swimwear and plenty of Factor 30 - because sunburn and blisters are never a good look!

For something a little quieter, Nissi beach is located just a few miles away from Ayia Napa and makes a great spot for anyone who fancies being within reach of the nightlife, without compromising a good night's sleep. Or if you fancy soaking up a bit of classic Cypriot culture, head to the town of Paphos. This is a great place with a lovely harbour and stacks of historical sights nearby, including Aphrodite's Rock and the ancient Tombs of the Kings.

You'll find holidays here and in many other locations by flicking through the holiday brochures of major tour operators, like Thomas Cook. Even better, get online and search the website for all the latest moneys-saving deals and inspiration on where to go. One thing's for sure, Cyprus holidays are pretty special - and one visit to this captivating island is never usually the last...
