Sailing to Europe's sunny shores
Choose between a cruise which concentrates on the Iberian Peninsula’s Atlantic coast, including gently gliding up the Guadalquivir to Seville, or a near full circuit of the Iberian Peninsula from La Coruña to Barcelona.
SHORE WALKS AND EXCURSION HIGHLIGHTS:
Cadiz - We walk the narrow streets of the old town and visit the central market for a chance to sample some delicious chocolate y churros.
Seville - We explore the orange-blossom scented streets of the Barrio Santa Cruz, discover the shady patios and ramparts of the Moorish Alcázar and visit Columbus' tomb in the Cathedral.
Malaga - A city with an attractive old centre as well as good walking in the hills behind where we walk amongst the pines, eucalyptus, broom, lavender and cistus.
Cartagena - In the Spanish province of Murcia, this is a city where you can peel back the layers of over 2000 years of history. We explore the city and part of the wild Costa Calida.
Barcelona - A city of so many contrasts. There are the narrow streets and peaceful squares of the Barri Gotic, the Olympic Park on the hillside of Montjuic, the port and Gaudi’s sensational buildings.
Valencia - The home of paella and amazing festivals. Enjoy wandering the streets of the old town with a local guide, then stop for a refreshing horchata, made from tiger nuts, a fruit grown only in Valencia.
Vigo - In this Spanish port close to the border with Portugal we visit the town with a local guide and make our way up to the viewpoint at the top of the Parque do Castro for views over the estuary and out to sea.
Lisbon - With a local guide we walk through the romantically named districts and the narrow cobbled streets of the old town.
