Hottest Canary Islands in December

 By Anna Scriven

The Canary Islands are a year-round destination and are perfect for if you want to escape the UK’s festive frostiness.

Gran Canaria and Lanzarote are the hottest of the islands in December. Although wetter than in the summer months, they are still much drier than the UK, with rainfall only predicted on four days in the month – and, of course, no snow.
