Hi there and welcome.

She will neeed a Shengen visa,this will have to be applied fo to the Country on who you are entering,so in your case Spain.

There are many threads on this site covering this subject,or just look at the Spanish Embassy website for more details.

Good luck to you all and happy holidays.....

Nick.

She could always risk getting a visa from the French Embassy (apparently very quick and efficient) and then blagging her way through any questions she might be asked at the Canary Island immigration desk if need be. If she lives in certain counties in the UK she would also qualify for submitting the application by post so no need to attend the French Embassy in person for an appointment...

then its likely to be back in the not to distant future. At this point she should apply for a UK passport (will be nothing to stop her and will take about 6 weeks once she has her citizenship certificate) and that will remove the need for a schengen in her Russian passport

I really love going out and do some nature tripping so when my friends had a vacation last year on cannary island I didn't waste any opportunity to try climbing Roque Nublo a "must visit" in Gran Canaria may not be that challenging to climb if you are an expert and into extreme sports but the scenery that you can see from this route is absoultely unique. Well I'm the only one in the gang who's on to nature but theirs a lot more to do on Gran Canaria hope this could help.
And if you still have some extra time also try visiting Tamadaba national park https://www.canaryislandsinfo.co.uk/gran-canaria/things-to-do/
