June brings one of the most exuberant and unique holidays to the Canary Islands: St. John's Day, or el Dia de San Juan.

Situated right at the heart of the island, this area is home to many mountains including the tallest peak, the Alto de Garjonay which experienced walkers can climb. At the top, you'll be rewarded with views across the ocean and as far as the other Canary Islands.
