Description

As you sail towards your destination, your birds eye view from high on deck truly reveals the majesty of this dramatic landscape. Four of Spain’s seven major national nature reserves are located among this volcanic archipelago – the volcanic crater of Mount Teide on Tenerife and Lanzarote’s Timanfaya National park being just two. During a day ashore, the diversity of the Canaries will become clearly visible. There are fields of petrified lava, lush vineyards and quaint whitewashed villages. Plus, not forgetting the bustling resorts and brilliant white and black beaches. Whatever your interests, a Canary Islands cruise will most certainly satisfy them.
Canary Island La Palma is called 'the fair isle' because of its fabulous landscape and you will soon see why.Santa Cruz is one of the prettiest harbours among the islands and is easily explored on foot. A short stroll along the Avenida Maritime promenade will take you to the lovely old quarter around Plaza de Espana, which has a 16th century fountain and town hall, a magnificent Renaissance church and a handicrafts market where you can pick up distinctive pottery and snack on local delicacies. The island’s most spectacular volcanic crater, Caldera de Taburiente, is crammed with rare animal and plant life and has been designated a national park, while its night skies are so clear that a major astrophysical observatory has been built at Roque de los Muchachos. For visitors in search of a memorable day, this island really delivers.
