Portland Holidays - now Thomson
You're probably here because you're looking for a Portland Holiday in 2013 - well, Portland Holidays have become part of Thomson Holidays now. In fact, Portland Holidays has been owned by Thomson for several years, but since 2011 the Portland brand has been stopped, and all holidays are now sold through Thomson. All's not lost though - it's still worth having a look at Thomson to see what they can offer you in the way of a good deal.

Gran Canaria

The volcanic activity that created the Canary Islands has left behind a magnificent legacy. Perhaps the most scenic of the Canarian archipelago, Gran Canaria boasts a stunning mountainous interior where rugged ravines and gaping gulleys become more fertile and lush with altitude. Winding roads snake up mountainsides to pretty whitewashed villages surrounded by spiky cacti. In contrast, bright and breezy coastal resorts bustle with life and excitement and play host to a superb selection of shops, restaurants and bars as well as long stretches of golden, sandy beaches where you can bask beneath the sub-tropical sun. Food & Wine in Gran Canaria
Gran Canaria's large resorts and towns offer all varieties of international food. Local Canarian cuisine is based around the sea life of the Atlantic and the indigenous fruit and vegetables. Try 'arroz con verduras', a sumptuous combination of rice with chopped peppers, sweetcorn and tomatoes or 'potaje de berros', a hearty soup made from watercress, pork, corn on the cob, potatoes, broad beans and flavoured with fresh cumin. To finish off your meal why not try a 'bienmesabe', a mixture of honey, almond cream, eggs and rum. Otherwise you can indulge all your fruity desires with some fresh mango, banana or papaya.

Days & Nights in Gran Canaria
Playa del Ingles is the Canary Islands' party capital. Once the sun sinks below the horizon, the resort's promenades and streets come alive with music and the sound of clinking glasses and funky beats. The island's capital, Las Palmas, also plays host to a lively hotspot. Playa de las Canteras is the capitals clubbing zone where you'll find bars and discos.

Sights & Sounds in Gran Canaria
Sightseeing: At the centre of this mountainous island stands the soaring volcanic peak of Pico de las Nievas whose rocky slopes quickly give way to verdant pine forests and lush banana plantations. Pretty whitewashed villages cling dramatically to rocky escarpments and provide an authentic flavour of true Canarian life.

Sun & Sand in Gran Canaria
Most people come here for the beaches. Nature has conspired to create an idyll that unfailingly tempts sun worshippers back to its sublime shores year after year. The long stretch of golden sand that characterises the south coast is the main attraction. You can choose between basking on the popular beaches of Playa del Ingles and Puerto Rico or finding your own secluded spot amongst the dunes of Maspalomas. As you'd expect from a major resort, there are a plethora of watersports to choose from.
