Overview

Holiday Highlights

  • La Palma’s Ruta de los Volcanes - a spectacular high-level trail
  • The stark volcanic landscape of Lanzarote
  • Gran Canaria known as a miniature continent

A cruise to southern waters is appealing at any time of year. When cold, dull and short days are commonplace in northern Europe we can expect milder weather further south and with any luck bright sunshine.

Sailing from Southampton or Newcastle, we have three we have three days at sea to relax, unwind, & enjoy the facilities and lectures on board of Fred Olsen Cruise Lines. During this magical journey around the Canary Islands, we will stop at below ports:

Tenerife - Dominated by 3000m Mount Teide, we walk in the Cañadas National Park through the beautiful desert-like terrain.

Gran Canaria - A mini continent due to its mixture of climates, our time on this island is spent descending through pine woods, barrancos and small hamlets.

Funchal, Madeira - Our walk takes us high up into the mountains on the levadas, water channels which allow the rains to irrigate the comparatively dry south.

Lisbon -Today we will take a sightseeing tour with a local guide, who takes us through the narrow cobbled streets of the Old Town

Porto - We head to the historic Ribeira District, where the narrow, cobbled lanes wind their way down to the Douro River, view the fortress-like Cathedral and the Baroque Church of Clérigos.

La Palma - An island separated in two by a dramatic ridge. We walk along a spectacular high level trail with views of the 120 volcanoes on the island.

Lanzarote - An island with a stark volcanic landscape where we walk along the cliffs in the south of the island between long sandy beaches.

Vigo - Situated on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, and with one of the world’s finest natural ports, we tour the Galician gems of Vigo and Baiona with a local guide.

Cádiz - We walk the narrow streets of the old town and visit the central market for a chance to sample some delicious chocolate y churros.

La Gomera - A lesser known Canary Island and a paradise for walkers. Listen out for local farmers whistling to communicate between the valleys.
