Scattered 70 miles off the coast of Africa, the Canaries combine European sophistication with a superb African climate. The islands are known for their year-round warmth, which is why a Canaries cruise is the perfect adventure for sun worshippers or those who wish to swim, sail, snorkel or simply stroll their way around magnificent landscapes.

This dramatic region is beyond most people’s expectations. The varied landscapes include the subtropical national park of La Gomera, the cascades of La Palma’s waterfalls and the pine canopy across Gran Canaria’s mountainous interior. Vistas that are in stark contrast to the barren lands of Tenerife - home to majestic Mount Teide - and the extravagant rock formations of Lanzarote’s lava fields. The Canaries offers a broad range of accessible outdoor activities. Many visitors enjoy hiking the signposted footpaths that criss-cross the islands, or to vary the pace with horse rides, boat trips and rounds of golf. [ReadMoreDesk]

While the Canary Islands may not offer the punch of galleries and museums of mainland Spain, there is much in the way of culture and art across the islands. The region’s architecture is also a draw for visitors, as the Canaries’ characteristic wooden balconies, leafy patios and brightly-painted façades around every turn are a joy to discover.  All of which can be taken advantage of on a memorable Canary Islands cruise.
