Just out of curiosity, how far are the Canary Islands from mainland Spain?
Is it true real Jeeps have flat fenders?

Around 2250 km (1400 miles I think).

So if you don't fly, it takes a good while on the water. I'm going to look for a map, to see how large the islands are.

It is quite close to Morocco, so the boat ride could be shortened and the car ride lenghtened haha

A lengthened jeep ride is good for you! Do it! :D

So I finally remembered to look for information on the Canary Islands. Here's a couple sites for a quick look:
