Instead of being stuck inside because it’s too cold to go out, you could be on any of the beautiful islands enjoying a number of activities. On your trip you can go hiking, try a number of water sports, go swimming, hire bicycles, play golf, ride horses or simply lay on the beach soaking up the sun relaxing. Why wouldn’t you want to spend your Christmas in the Canary Islands? It is becoming an increasingly popular destination for those that want to enjoy a different kind of Christmas on a beach away from the wind and rain back home.
