If you're looking to book cheap flights to Gran Canaria, then you’re in for a treat as there’s plenty of deals to be had. Gran Canaria sits in a weather sweet spot that keeps the thermometer just right all year round. Be prepared to be wowed by an incredibly diverse and sensational landscape. 'Adrenaline-pumping' doesn’t do justice to the breathtaking thrill of hiking the lavish, jagged volcano landscape that Gran Canaria is well known for. Explore the lush woods of the northern coast, with its sensational white, sandy beaches. In the south, you'll feel you're on another planet entirely, when trekking the bleak landscape of the windswept dunes.
Obviously, the best way to save money when looking for cheap tickets to Gran Canaria is to travel when the island is less crowded. That’s easier said than done though, as there’s no real off season. September and October are probably best, as the August holidaymakers have gone and the weather is still wonderfully hot. You'll increase your odds of booking cheap flights to Gran Canaria by flying out of Manchester Airport (MAN) or Luton (LTN), though there are good deals from Gatwick (LGW) and Stansted (STN) airports too.
Pretty much any time you need a break from the dreary British weather is a good time to come to Gran Canaria. It feels like spring all year round here, and the fresh sea breeze quickly works its feel-good therapy. For a really spellbinding sight, come between February and Easter, when all is in bloom and vibrant colours reach as far as the eye can see. Spring is also the time for the island's famed festivities. From the exuberant Carnival celebrations in February, to the melancholic ceremony during Easter's holy week, there are plenty of unforgettable spectacles for you to enjoy. As you're in the land of fiestas, it should come as no surprise that Canarians love to welcome summer with a huge celebration, known as San Juan, which takes place in June. September and October are the best months to come if you're looking for a more low-key break.
There are loads of options for flying from UK airports direct to Gran Canaria. But who'll get you there the cheapest? It would be unsurprising to most to learn that the weekday routes that easyJet and Ryanair run from Stansted (STN), Gatwick (LGW) and Southend (SEN) win out on price.
Get your wallet ready and be prepared for all the shopping, dining and nightlife that the capital of Las Palmas has to offer. If you're longing for adventure and want to enjoy majestic views, hike up to Roque Nublo, a fabulous mountainous masterpiece that plays now-you-see-me-now-you-don't in a sea of clouds. Sprawl under the sun on the golden sands of Gran Canaria's many beaches, or have fun in the water mastering a surfboard. Your jaw will also certainly drop at the sight of the sublime sand dunes of Maspalomas.
