Although there are many who see the final weeks of December as the moment in which we activate “blanket, sofa, armchairs and hot wine” as our default mode, for others this Christmas month is the best time to travel and visit destinations that offer us something totally different from what we already have.
Although it is traditional to travel on these dates with friends, there is nothing like choosing our country’s warmest destinations to spend these dates as a family. Destinations like the Balearic Islands or Canary Islands
show their best face when the thermometer drops and are ideal for an alternative holiday. We recommend Ibiza, Lanzarote and the permanently charming island of Tenerife
A route through Pitïusas
Summery by tradition, the island of Ibiza looks equally beautiful in these winter months in which beach bathing gives way to walking tours and fun sports. Put another way: choosing the biggest of the ‘pitïusas’ in these months of the year is a success, especially if you are hoping to enjoy the sun and the calm of the Balearics as a family.
Along with its many water sports (sailing is among the most popular in winter) and its trekking routes for families, the island is within walking distance of another natural gem of the Balearic Islands: the island of Formentera; a different trip to a place of almost magical natural geography.
Where to stay in Ibiza? Although there are several family hotels, our recommendation is the Olé Galeón Ibiza.
Lanzarote and Tenerife with the family
Of the islands that shape the Canaries, Lanzarote and Tenerife are the best options for traveling as a family. On the one hand, the island of Lanzarote is ideal for discovering unique places (such as the house of César Manrique) or fields filled with thousands of cacti originating from the most remote places on the planet.
Although the ascent to Timanfaya, in Lanzarote, is pretty no matter where you look, nothing compares to visiting Mount Teide. Our country’s volcanic gem is one of the most beautiful and impressive excursions that you can do as a family. The best of both destinations is the climate with temperatures exceeding 24 degrees even on these dates.
Where should you stay in Lanzarote and Tenerife? For its quality and its many services for family holidays, this month we recommend the Olé Olivina Lanzarote and the Olé Tropical Tenerife
