Hottest Canary Islands in January

 By Anna Scriven

January is the depths of winter in the Canary Islands, but it’s still a whole lot warmer than in the UK. Well worth the four hours flying time!

Gran Canaria is the hottest of the islands in January. In summer the difference of one or two degrees may not be significant, but in winter every bit of extra heat and sunshine is highly valuable.
