The “Floating Garden” of Madeira
The perfect walkers’ island
Madeira's volcanic origins are evident by the rocky shore line and rugged mountainous interior. Its highest point, Pico Ruivo, at nearly 1800m, looks out over a mass of peaks and a violently formed landscape. Over the years Madeira has been described as the "pearl of the Atlantic" and "the floating garden"

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.

Magic of the Canaries
Exploring mountains, volcanoes and gorges of the Canaries.
It is our cruises to the Canaries that really show best what Cruise & Walk is all about - a new island each day, real mountain walking, at a time of year when the weather in northern Europe makes a cruise to the warm south seem even more appealing.

Palaces, Castles & Gardens of Sintra
A week of Portuguese charm and splendour - an Adagio holiday

Cooled by the Atlantic breeze and partly shaded by forest, the hot sunny climate of Sintra was the summer residence of Portuguese monarchs for six hundred years. The quiet fascination of Sintra deserves a slower pace, time to sip the wine of European culture touched by the earlier hand of Islamic influence.

Quinta Bonita
Exploring the beautiful landscapes of southern Portugal - an Adagio holiday

Sea breezes and the smell of wild herbs; fishing villages and sandy coves; local food washed down with local wine… who can resist the call of the warm south?
