The cruise at a glance

The Olsen Way Highlights

On the island of La Gomera, you can enjoy a guided tour of Fred. Olsen’s hotel – Jardin Tecina – before relaxing with views over the Atlantic Ocean. Your time on Lanzarote can be as energetic as you wish; you can visit an active volcano or simply relax on the black-sand beaches while a day in Funchal is ideal for riding the historic cable car to the suburb of Monte and indulging in some sweet Madeira wine. Elsewhere, you can soak up the winter warmth on the beaches of Gran Canaria and Tenerife.

Pasteis de Nata

Learn how to create Pasteis de Nata


As part of our ‘Treats of the Region’ on board experience, you can join your chef for a demonstration on how to prepare the world famous Portuguese sweet treat – Pasteis de Nata – an egg custard tart made from crispy pastry and lightly dusted with Cinnamon.

Timanfaya Mountains

Learn about the volcanic landscapes of Lanzarote


On this tour, discover the fiery mountains of Timanfaya and witness the rustic nature of this otherworldly volcanic landscape. The absence of wildlife creates a powerful silence which makes the power of an event like a volcanic eruption difficult to imagine; yet the truth is that the land is still bubbling beneath the surface. Watch in awe at the live experiment demonstration, whilst listening to the stories and explanations of the priest of Yaiza who lived through an eruption that devastated the region.
