Why we love this deal:

  • A tropical escape across 6-nights that will leave you with unforgettable experiences in two relatively untouched destinations, with thrilling adventures, crystal waters, temperate climates and jaw-dropping natural wonders. 
  • Start your trip in Gran Canaria, known as the ‘miniature continent,’ where you can soak up in the sun on golden or black lava beaches and climb pine-covered mountains on the same day. The huge variety of landscapes and eternal springtime weather creates endless opportunities for outdoor adventures. Don’t forget to stop in Gran Canaria’s charming towns along the way, where time slows to an island crawl and beautiful architecture surrounds. In fact, Tejada was named one of Prettiest Towns in Spain.
  • Then head to Madeira, a colorful Portuguese island boasting a quaint capital city, jaw-dropping hikes featuring hundreds of waterfalls across the island, namesake Madeira wine and world-renowned, Michelin-starred seafood and five-star oceanfront accommodations. Try the local fish, savor bolo do caco and sip poncha as you people-watch under the sunny skies of Madeira. Enjoy the thrill of going down a hill on a traditional wicker toboggan and admire the island’s typical houses and architecture. 
  • Customizable: Add more nights to your stay, a rental car or even local excursions!
