Canary Islands Intensive Voyage Special Offer

Discover the natural beauty of the Canary Islands this winter on this incredible luxury voyage.

Explore Gran Canaria, an island known as the “miniature continent,” where a third is under protection as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Discover dunes and mountain peaks, stroll along extraordinary beaches, or take in the history of the island in Las Palmas. A beautiful overnight stop in Madeira breaks up your Canary Islands adventure.

During a late stay in La Palma, experience La Caldera de Taburiente, just one of the spectacular natural settings on the island. On La Gomera Island, discover verdant forest, deep ravines, and breathtaking views.

On the popular island of Tenerife, explore Santa Cruz and the very modern Auditorio de Tenerife, reminiscent of Australia’s Sydney Opera House. A late stay allows plenty of time to savour the abundant variety of fresh fish, well-known cheeses, and renowned wines before you cruise back to Gran Canaria.

Canary Islands Intensive Voyage Itinerary

Day 1 - Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Canary Islands)

Embark your ship in Gran Canaria. Perhaps the prettiest of the Canary Islands, Gran Canaria is an almost circular isle with the peak of Pozo de Las Nieves, its highest point, at the centre. With a wealth of natural beauty and all the exciting attractions of city life in the capital, the island offers the best of both worlds. You will no doubt wish to see the sights of the capital’s old quarter, which dates back to the 15th century and encompassses the Vegueta and Triana districts, and wherever you go you can enjoy the glorious subtropical climate, perfect for growing exotic palms and fruits.

Days 2-3 - Funchal (Madeira)

Formed by a volcanic eruption, Madeira lies in the Gulf Stream, about 500 miles due west of Casablanca. Discovered by Portuguese explorer João Gonçalves Zarco in 1419, this beautiful island became part of Portugal’s vast empire and was named for the dense forest which cloaked it - 'Madeira' means 'wood' in Portuguese. Sugar plantations first brought wealth here, and when King Charles II of England granted an exclusive franchise to sell wine to England and its colonies, many British emigrants were drawn to the capital, Funchal. Today’s travellers come to Madeira for the varied and luxuriant scenery, from mountain slopes covered with vines to picturesque villages and a profusion of wild flowers. The natural beauty of the island has earned it many pseudonyms such as ‘The Floating Garden of the Atlantic’, 'The Island of Eternal Springtime' and ‘God’s Botanical Gardens’ and our selection of excursions aim to show you why.

Day 4 - Santa Cruz de La Palma (Canary Islands)

Also known as ‘La Isla Bonita’ (the beautiful island), La Palma is typified by lush forests of pine, laurel and fern which contrast with the rugged splendour of the gigantic Taburiente crater. The island is dotted with attractive villages, which are a delight to discover, and the capital Santa Cruz also makes for an interesting day of exploration. Perched on the edge of the volcanic crater of La Caldereta, Santa Cruz comfortably blends modern architecture with old colonial buildings. Perhaps visit the fascinating Natural History Museum, stroll around the historic quarters and the Plaza de Espana or travel a few miles outside the city to the exquisite Church of Our Lady. If you enjoy shopping, you can find reasonably priced silver jewellery, leather goods and beautifully embroidered clothes, tablecloths and napkins, a speciality of the Canary Islands.

Day 5 - La Gomera

Known as the ‘Round Isle’, La Gomera is one of the oldest and smallest of the Canary Islands. Perhaps overshadowed by the obvious charms of its neighbour, Tenerife, from a distance this cone-shaped volcanic isle with its massive grey skyline can appear foreboding. But once ashore, a different world awaits discovery. Steep valleys and ravines hide a host of surprises such as terraced fields and laurel rain forests. The climb to the top of the island reveals breathtaking views and some rare flora and fauna in the mist-covered heights of Garajonay National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. With a relatively modest tourist industry and less explored than its neighbouring islands, La Gomera is a fascinating place to visit. San Sebastian is the capital and main port of the island, set on the east coast and with a distinctly rural feel, with a few small plazas and colourful houses lining the hillside. The port is famous for its visit by Christopher Columbus, who stopped here in 1492 before sailing to the Americas.

Day 6 - Tenerife

A notoriously festive destination, Tenerife is the biggest, most well-known of Spain’s Canary Islands, and is characterized by a rugged coastline and miles of beaches, popular for kite surfing and swimming.

Day 7 - Los Cristianos

Enjoy another day on the island of Tenerife, this time exploring pretty Los Cristianos.

Day 8 - Las Palmas de Gran Canaria

Disembark your ship.
