The cruise at a glance

The Olsen Way Highlights

Join Balmoral for this springtime sailing to the Canary Islands, with their balmy climate and links to the Olsen family. The volcanic landscapes make for rewarding exploration, from the mountainous vistas of La Palma and Tenerife’s Mount Teide to Lanzarote’s Timanfaya National Park. Alternatively, soaking up the warmth on a vast choice of beaches or learning how to make traditional Mojo sauce with a local family offer more relaxing experiences. Meanwhile, a full day in Funchal will allow time to wander Madeira’s botanical gardens – perhaps with an orchid enthusiast who can share their knowledge of the island’s flora – and capture views from the Cabo Girão sea cliff.
