Cruise Overview

The Wonders of Madeira and the Canary Islands - Atlantic Expedition Cruise

Garden of the Atlantic

Our Canary Island expedition begins in Gran Canaria, known as a 'continent in miniature' for its varied terrain. From here, we'll cruise to lush Madeira and its historic capital Funchal before exploring the tranquil beaches of Porto Santo, while scanning for seabirds and dolphins.

Wildlife, scenery and culture

After a stop in charming Arrecife, we'll head to volcano-sculpted Lanzarote, vibrant Santa Cruz in Tenerife and explore pretty La Palma. Then it's on to El Hierro, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, before returning to Gran Canaria.
