Magic of the Canaries
Exploring mountains, volcanoes and gorges of the Canaries.

Sailing towards the Tropics
Cruising the Europe and Africa's Atlantic coast and islands

On this cruise we don’t quite reach the Tropics, but the mild climate of the Azores, Madeira and the Canaries is a welcome contrast to a northern European winter. Add to that a dash of Iberia and a taste of Morocco and you have a very pleasant way to build up to Christmas.
