Our cruises to the Canary Islands also take in the port of La Corua on the north coast of Spain and the Portuguese ports of Funchal in Madeira, Lisbon, Portimo. These cruises really show what Cruise Walk is all about. New islands nearly every day offer superb mountain walking in an ideal climate. Volcanic islands with a mixture of forested slopes, high level trails, combined with bizarre rock sand landscapes plus some city sights too. Our shorter eight night fly-cruise, whilst offering fewer days at sea, gives us a high concentration of walks on different islands, together with calls on Madeira and Gibraltar. This particular fly cruise starts with an overnight stay in Tenerife. Our unique shore walks and excursions include: Tenerife:Dominated by 3000m Mt Teide, we walk in the Canadas National Park through the beautiful desert-like terrain. Gran Canaria:A mini continent due to its mixture of climates, our time on this island is spent descending through pine woods, barrancos and small hamlets. Madeira:Our walk takes us high up into the mountains on the levadas, water channels which allow the rains to irrigate the comparatively dry south. Lisbon:A local guide takes us through the narrow cobbled streets of the Old Town’s romantically named districts. La Palma:An island cut in two by a dramatic ridge. We walk along a spectacular high level trail with views of the 120 volcanoes on the island. La Corua:We visit the Old City where we see the medieval buildings and monuments, the splendid waterfront and the Tour de Hercules, the only Roman lighthouse in existence. Lanzarote:An island with a stark volcanic landscape where we walk along the cliffs in the south of the island between long sandy beaches. Fuerteventura:On this arid island we explore a wild and remote gorge before finishing on the black sand beach near Ajuy. Gibraltar:A day spent in this curious outpost of the UK, where we take the cable car up the famous rock to the nature reserve at the top. The fly cruise departs from London Gatwick with British Airways. Manchester flights are also available with Monarch Airlines. Please ask for details.
