Do you know Tenerife?

Tenerife, one of the lucky islands. But … do you really know why the Canary Islands are called the lucky islands? Its origin comes from a legend of a Greek myth. This legend came to say that virtuous souls after death would enjoy an unprecedented rest, a utopia narrated in Atlantis as the awaited paradise on the Island of the Blessed.

We can also wonder why the later name of “Canarias” and there is also a possible theory: the first explorers who discovered the Canaries, found that there were many wild dogs and the word “dog” in Latin is “canis”, hence the name of Canary Islands.


Tenerife is the largest of the Canary Islands and the only one that has two international airports. It has the highest peak in Spain, Mount Teide with a height of 3,718 meters and an average temperature throughout the year around 23 degrees.
