Join Boudicca in Falmouth and set sail on a relaxing springtime escape to the Canaries, Madeira and Portugal where gorgeous landscapes and pretty cities bathed in warm, seasonal sunshine await your exploration.
A plethora of incredible experiences are yours to discover during your time in the Canaries, calling into three of the region’s most beautiful and popular islands on consecutive days. You could venture into Lanzarote’s spectacular Timanfaya National Park from Arrecife to explore the lunar-like landscapes and see the dramatic Fire Mountains; relax on the golden-sands of Gran Canaria’s Maspalomas Beach and uncover the secrets of the picturesque Agaete Valley during a day in Las Palmas; and climb Mount Teide – Spain’s highest peak – on an unforgettable adventure from Santa Cruz de Tenerife, which is also perfectly placed for trips to the mystical Pyramids of Güímar.
From Funchal, explore the fabulously floral landscapes of Madeira with a relaxing wander along the beautiful Levada walking trails, taking in the vibrant colours and scents of a diverse range of flora; or journey deep into the lush Laurel Forest in search of endemic birds. Alternatively you could climb the Cabo Girão cliff for spectacular vistas, or stay in Funchal and visit the world-famous Reid’s Hotel to take the weight off your feet and devour a delicious afternoon tea. Following your day in Funchal is a call into the charming Portuguese capital, Lisbon. Enjoy superb views of the iconic Ponte 25 de Abril Bridge as you glide into port, then step ashore to discover the city’s many attractions, including Belem Tower and the UNESCO-listed Jerónimos Monastery.
