El Hierro, the Canary Islands
Finding itself situated on the Southernmost and Easternmost part of Spain and only a 30 minute flight from Tenerife, El Hierro has to be one of the most dramatic islands of all the Canary Isles. Despite it’s ease of access (it’s also a 3 hour boat journey from Tenerife), there has been little sign of man’s impact when compared to the likes of Tenerife or Lanzarote.
El Hierro really is a hidden treasure of the Canary Isles, one which will await you with rugged landscapes and signs of adventure around every corner. It’s the perfect location for those more adventurous holiday-makers, a far cry from your typical all-inclusive Tenerife holiday package.
With a population of approximately 10,000 islanders, and being the smallest of all the Canary Isles at just 268km square, you can really appreciate the quiet but powerful charm of El Hierro.
