The Canary Islands consist of Tenerife, Fuetueventura, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, La Gomera, La Palma and El Hierro as the main tourist islands. Then you have the smaller islands, starting with the two Rocques, del Este and del Oeste. That leaves the Isla de Lobos and the islands of Alegranza, Graciosa and Montana Clara.
The islands of the Canaries, owe their origin to volcanic activity which in turn has produced a natural diverse landscape with tropical rainforest, pine grooves, mountain peeks and pristine beaches that stretch as far as the eye can see.
Being closer to Africa than Spain, it is blessed with a perfectly mild climate through out the year making it a paradise for outdoor lovers.
The IslandsFor a refreshing winter break, choose one the seven islands; Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura, Lanzarote, Tenerife, La Palma, Hierro or Gomera.
FuerteventuraThe oldest island is Fuerteventura. Landing at Fuerteventura Airport, it attracts tourists who enjoy outdoor activities such as deep sea fishing, sailing and scuba. Also you can get a boat trip and enjoy watching whales or dolphins. The interior of the island is lavascaped and is best explored by a 4x4 SUV jeep rental, or cross country bike.

Rented Freelander 4x4 3 Door in: Fuerteventura Airport
All Fuerteventura Airport Reviews
Overall Experience : I have to admit, I was a little bit apprehensive about using FCH at first, as I had seen some very negative reviews regarding the voucher system, and was worried about turning up at Fuerteventura airport with just a self-printed voucher to be told I had no booking or had to pay far more! However, I am very glad I went ahead, as everything went very well. I wouldn't have been able to have a 4x4 if it weren't for FastCarHire! Excellent service and I am sure I will be using FCH again soon.
Supplier Service: Excellent. Multilingual staff, who are friendly and helpful. Had the keys to the car within 3 minutes of handing over my voucher and paying. I was able to add additional drivers in the second week at no extra cost, and it was done within a few minutes. Best car hire company I've ever used! Additionally, I did NOT have to return the car with a full tank of fuel. It was supplied with a quarter tank, which may be why, but other companies I have used always insist on a full tank, regardless of how it is when you pick it up. Very useful!
Car: Modern, clean (it went back full of sand though...) and better than expected due to a free upgrade. I had booked a "Freelander class" vehicle but got a Chevrolet Captiva (much bigger!). More than adequate for FV's less travelled dirt tracks.
