Gran Canaria weather is very popular for the amazing spring temperature the island has all year round. However, It’s very unknown for most people the varieties of climates all over the island. It’s hard to believe in such a territory you can be sunbathing while is snowing on the top of its mountains.
Talking about the weather in Gran Canaria is very like talking about grapes varieties or local wines. We have so many different temperatures and weathers as wines. Yes, to be amazed. Finally Autumn is here, and where Europe is starting to get colder temperatures, ours remains above 20 plus. However, the weather in Gran Canaria starts changing at the end of autumn and mostly in the altitude of the island and north. Yes, as you drive up in the mountains those 20 degrees starting to drop down. Some people wouldn’t believe that we get snow on the summit, while tourists are sunbathing in the south of the island at the same time, just one hour driving distance from top to bottom.
To give you a quick idea of that marvelous day we had, We left Playa del Inglés with 21ºC to arrive in Tejeda with 6ºC. Again, only one hour driving distance. One of my favourite things are the constant changing of the sceneries, something very unexpected in such a small territory and again, this is the result of the amazing weather in Gran Canaria. And to finish our tour we drove towards Las Palmas through San Mateo Village. Las Palmas had 19ºC in the afternoon when we drove by. Now, picture those details in wine making. Some of our temperatures can get so hot or cold, extreme altitude or volcanic soil, that not all varieties get adapted to. Some of those vineyards in Gran Canaria are located in highest regions of Spain. Those views, those grapes, what a wines!. This way, the hard adaptation of our varieties for more than 400 years, makes excellent wine qualities. However, as the territory is limited, so are the vineyards with small productions. The most important for Gran Canaria Winemakers is to produce the finest wines.
Recommendation: where to stay in Gran Canaria
So if you are primary running away from your country weather, my recommendation to assure sun and warm climate, you should stay at East coast and south, all the way to Mogán (best weather in Europe), and the best weather of the Canary Islands. That’s why Gran Canaria is the best weather for a wine tasting. The best weather in Gran Canaria is always in the south, and if you want to get impressed by different weathers and landscapes all over the island, take a wine tour. From slope to slope, you won’t believe the sceneries are so diverse among each others, you’ll love our artisan wines, the experience of meeting our kind winemakers, and above all, Gran Canaria will always surprise. You won’t believe such a small island can be so magically surprising.
