Sail with the trade winds through the ever-changing island landscape of the Canaries on this unique 8-day cruise. Not long after the sun rises over the ocean, cries of “Cast off!” can be heard on board the Sea Cloud ll. The crew sets the sails and the majestic windjammer embarks on its journey towards another beautiful island. It is only after many idyllic hours at sea that the yacht stops in another port, just as the lights go on in the bars and bodegas for the evening. Visit incredible landscapes including Gran Canaria, Tenerife, La Gomera, and La Palma, each island its own unique world. Whilst Las Palmas has a cosmopolitan feel, rustic San Sebastián and Santa Cruz are places of quiet introspection. Then there is Los Cristianos, which is the perfect starting point for a trip to the rugged volcano Mount Teide.

Day 1-2 Las Palmas, Gran Canaria, Spain | Embark

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 2 Dinners
Arrive in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria. Board the Sea Cloud and attend dinner as the ship sets sail.

With its black volcano almost 2,000 meters (6,561 feet) high and endless white beaches along the coastline, the island of Gran Canaria displays a huge variety of landscapes. This is a "continent in miniature" with rugged rock formations, dense pine forests, dry valleys and reservoirs in the interior, lush vegetation in the north, shimmering dune landscapes in the south, and weirdly shaped cliffs in the west. Almost half the island has been registered by UNESCO as a Biosphere Reserve. The capital, Las Palmas, is no less colorful, with its port and history stretching back 500 years. The showpiece of this historic old town is the magnificent Santa Ana Cathedral.

Day 3 Santa Cruz, Tenerife

  • Ship
  • 2 Breakfasts, 2 Lunches, 2 Dinners
Even from afar you can see the impressive panorama with Tenerife's landmark, Mount Teide. Its peak is the highest in Spain at 3,718 meters (12,200 feet) and is often covered in snow. The Las Cañadas National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a high volcanic plateau at the foot of Teide, surrounded by a circle of rock that rises up steeply. Volcanic activity has created strange-looking rock formations here which are adorned with a huge range of colors and seem like a unique synthesis of nature's art. In contrast to this are the fertile valleys of the north, a barren, almost desert-like south, and the island's vibrant capital city, Santa Cruz.

Day 4 San Sebastián, La Gomera

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Many people consider La Gomera to be the most wildly romantic island in the Canaries. Rugged gorges, craggy hillsides, fertile valleys and evergreen cloud forests characterize the landscape. The Garajonay National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, embraces the whole central mountain area and is an unusual little spot. Ancient bay trees, heather bushes as high as trees and meter-high ferns form a cloud forest where treemoss hangs from the trees and mosses cling to gnarled branches - a truly mystical natural spectacle which has existed for millions of years.

Day 5 Santa Cruz, La Palma

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The combination of small size and great height make the lush green volcanic island of La Palma one of the steepest islands on earth. The white houses in the island's capital shine out from wooded mountain slopes and the old town center of Santa Cruz is covered by a preservation order principally because of its Canarian houses with their artistically decorated wooden balconies. The Caldera de Taburiente towers above the north of the island. With a diameter of nine kilometers (5.6 miles) and surrounded by crater walls more than 2,000 meters (6,561 feet) high, it is one of the world's largest volcanic craters. Behind the caldera is the cloud forest of Los Tilos. The Biosphere Reserve was extended by UNESCO to cover the whole island of La Palma.

Day 6-7 Los Cristianos, Tenerife

  • Ship
  • 2 Breakfasts, 2 Lunches, 2 Dinners

Day 8 Las Palmas, Gran Canaria | Disembark

  • 1 Breakfast
Arrive in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria and disembark after breakfast. Transfer to the airport for your continued independent journeys.

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
