The Canary Islands are the warmest place in Europe during the winter. During this season, the average temperature on the Canary Islands is around 65 degrees Fahrenheit


The Canary Islands are made up of seven islands in total. The islands are located in the Atlantic Ocean, to the south west of Spain and to the north west of Africa. Due to their geographical location and their proximity to the Tropic of Cancer, the islands have a subtropical climate. The climate is frequently described as an eternal spring, and there is generally only a 6 degree temperature difference between the summer and winter months. Its warm winter climate makes the Canary Islands one of the most popular European tourist destinations at that time of year.
