Planned Itinerary

Day 1: Las Palmas/Disembarkation

After breakfast on board and disembarkation, your transfer bus will be waiting for you at the pier. This tour is centered around amazing history, traditional architecture, and magnificent geology—all wrapped up in one excursion. Explore the beautiful Old Town of Las Palmas and travel inland to Bandama Crater.

First, we drive to Vegueta, the oldest quarter of Las Palmas, where you’ll stroll through a maze of narrow cobblestone streets and tiny squares and visit the Columbus House, where the explorer once stayed. Afterwards, pass by Plaza Santa Ana, with its bronze statues honoring the dogs (‘canum’ in Latin) that gave the Canary Islands their name. Your excursion will continue through the exclusive residential area of Tafira.

The next stop will be the volcanic crater of Bandama, an extinct volcano rising 1,900 ft above sea level. Marvel at the panoramic views before continuing to a local wine cellar in a beautiful colonial-style house. There’s also a museum here, where you’ll learn about the history of winemaking and will be able to sample some.

Afterward, the bus will return you to your centrally located hotel in Las Palmas.

Day 2: Las Palmas / Departure

If you have extra time and energy before returning home, explore more of Las Palma. This bustling city is overflowing with Spanish charm, history, and culture.

Breakfast at the hotel marks the end of your Post-Program.
