Win a holiday for two to The Canary Islands

CanariesLOGO

Offering year-round spring temperatures, The Canary Islands can provide the perfect remedy to those UK winter blues, and The Independent has teamed up with The Canary Island Tourist Board and the Spanish Tourist Office to give you the chance to win a seven-night holiday for two to two of its islands.

The seven Spanish islands, nestled 100km off the coast of western Africa, provide the best of both worlds, offering all the charm of mediterranean Europe but with a mild sub-tropical climate that you'd expect so near the equator.

On each island you can observe beautiful volcanic landscapes in spectacular national parks, sun yourself on stunning black sand beaches or sample the fantastic local cheese and wine.

To stand a chance of winning the holiday, which includes seven-nights split between Fuerteventura and  Lanzarote, staying in 5-star hotels on a half board basis, airport transfers or car hire, and transfers from one island to the other, simply answer the questions below.
