Winter Warmth in the Canaries

10th November 2024   |   14 Nights   |   Liverpool   |   Bolette   |   T2426

ABOUT THIS CRUISE

Join us in the balmy climes of the Canaries as winter draws nearer – our team has designed this cruise to offer chances to visit a multitude of natural and cultural sites recognised by UNESCO, from the Biosphere Reserve of La Palma to the city of San Cristóbal de La Laguna.

In Tenerife, you could opt to visit Mount Teide, the highest volcano in Spain, before enjoying a rare call into Fuerteventura, known for its beautiful sandy beaches and aloe vera production. With a day on the ‘garden island’ of Madeira, you can wander the unique levada walking trails and explore the botanical gardens with a local orchid expert; and then enjoy a slice of Morocco in the historical and cosmopolitan city of Tangier.

Experts from Go Stargazing will join you on board Bolette to assist with learning more about different constellations and planets, holding informative sessions out on deck during the evening-time.

FUNCHAL

Portugal

Arrival - Early Afternoon  ~  Departure - Early Evening

Famous for its outstanding natural beauty, the Atlantic island of Madeira is known as the ‘floating garden’, with its array of subtropical flowers and plants – grown from the bulbs and seeds of the British merchants who came to the island after making their fortune from selling Madeiran wine. Produced since the 17th century, Madeira Wine’s historical and maritime links make for fascinating reading, of course accompanied by a glass or two of the ‘liquid history’, as described by Winston Churchill.

SANTA CRUZ DE LA PALMA

Spain

Arrival - Early Afternoon  ~  Departure - Late Evening

The landscapes of La Palma were formed around 2 million years ago, resulting in the Caldera de Taburiente National Park being formed by erosion from the volcano’s original crater, and now classed as a Biosphere Reserve. At sea level, the island’s capital, Santa Cruz, is a small city with colonial style architecture and edged with volcanic black sandy beaches. The historic quarter of the city is steeped in history with buildings erected during the reign of Phillip II, and is widely regarded as one of Spain’s Historic-Artistic sites.

SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE

Spain

Arrival - Early Morning  ~  Departure - Early Evening

Largest of the Canary Islands, Tenerife is built around Mount Teide, the highest volcano in Spain. Santa Cruz is home to the eye-catching 16th century Iglesia de la Concepción and the baroque Palacio de Carta. The island has a resident population of pilot whales and several migratory species, thus making Tenerife one of the best places to whale watch in Europe.

PUERTO DEL ROSARIO, FUERTEVENTURA

Spain

Arrival - Early Morning  ~  Departure - Late Afternoon

With a picturesque port area, and plenty of shops, restaurants and open-air cafés, Puerto del Rosario is a fun place to visit. There’s no defined centre to the town – apart from around the port – but walking round the streets is a great way of finding interesting shops, or discovering family-owned bars serving tapas, local wines and Canarian cuisine, such as fish with spicy sauce.

Home to over 150 beautiful beaches, Fuerteventura is also a popular holiday destination. The Canaries second largest island has a glorious climate, boasting almost year-round sunshine and warmth. A volcanic island, Fuerteventura has stunning natural landscapes that beg to be explored, as well as crystal clear waters that are a mecca for swimmers and water sports enthusiasts.

TANGIER

Morocco

Arrival - Early Morning  ~  Departure - Late Afternoon

Tangier is the gateway from Europe to Africa, due to its location on the Straits of Gibraltar, and has seen rapid progression into a cosmopolitan city, whilst still retaining its history. The Medina is situated within the walls of a 15th century Portuguese fortress, and is a labyrinth of market stalls and cafés, where the popular Moroccan mint tea is often served. Gunpowder tea first arrived here in the 18th century, and where locals added fresh mint and sugar – this refreshing drink is now available throughout Tangier.
