Earlier on this week I wrote about my recent stay at the beautiful Bohemia Suites & Spa in Gran Canaria, which was a stunning boutique hotel (head on over for a read if you're thinking of visiting as it's a great spot for a sunshine break!). Whilst in Gran Canaria I got a *tad snap happy and wanted to share what we got up to with you all, as I mentioned in my previous post; the island had so much more to offer than I ever could have imagined! From helicopter rides, to mountain tours, exploring Las Palmas, cocktail tasting, Segway tours and visiting the sand dunes - there is something for everyone here (and well, if you just want to relax by the pool, drink mojitos and read, that's also fine too!). Here's an overview of what we got up to in Gran Canaria...

Riding a helicopter across the island was one of the best things I've ever done. In my life. Ever. SO beautiful!

There are direct flights to Gran Canaria from London Heathrow Terminal 5 with BA-Iberia (our flight only took around 4 hours so fairly short haul!)

    I’ve never been to Gran Canaria before, but it looks so stunning! I had no idea there was so much to do there. I just kind of imagined it to be a place to lie by the pool or beach.

      It honestly is and I completely agree with you! Until I’d been I wasn’t aware of how much there was on offer! Definitely a destination to check out! x
