Weather and Climate

The wind, the Gulf Stream, the relief and the geographical latitude determine the climate of Gran Canaria, an island of volcanic origins and rich in contrasts. The Canaries enjoy a worldwide fame, gained because of their mild climate, one of the best in the whole world. Gran Canaria’s weather is mild, with pleasant temperatures, rarely too high and almost always constant.

The average temperatures oscillate in the summer months between 26 C and 28 C, often exceeding 30 C, and in the winter months between 22 C and 24 C. Gran Canaria is a mountainous island where the trade winds prevail all year. This island deserves the nickname 'continent in miniature', as it holds a wide variety of microclimates that go from the subtropical to the continental climates. Sometimes, you can see snow in the highest peaks, and just a few kilometres away you will get both tropical temperatures and extreme cold.
