Canary Islands, Madeira & the Azores

WorldWide Cruises 2017-18

Canary Islands, Madeira & the Azores With most of our holidays to this region departing in the first or final few months of the year, a relaxing cruise to the beautiful Canaries is the perfect escape from the British winter into warmer climes, without the need for a tiring long-haul flight. Each island is unique in its own way, though they’re all blessed with the beautiful scenery that shows there’s more to ‘the sunshine islands’ than just topping up the tan, tempting though that is. Choose from caramel-coloured beaches, sweet-smelling gardens, sprawling parks, lava fields, flourishing forests and a selection of historic and cultural sites. Top of the ‘must-visit’ list of natural pleasures are Lanzarote’s Timanfaya National Park, Tenerife’s mighty Mount Teide – the highest peak in Spain, the effortlessly radiant Maspalomas Beach on Gran Canaria, and the stunning San Antonio Volcano on La Palma. It’s not hard to see why Portugal is such a Fred. favourite. From the architectural delights of the picturesque capital, Lisbon, to the cobbled walkways and wine cellars of Oporto, there is so much to learn, to feel, to discover. To see even more of this charming country, our ‘Sun, Souks & Siestas’ sailing in November 2017 includes a slice of the alluring Algarve region with a call into Portimão. You’re sure to enjoy the ‘garden island’ of Madeira. An explorer’s paradise, it explodes with elegant countryside, verdant laurel forest and colourful floral delights, enhanced by a favourable climate all year round. Pretty Porto Santo features, along with regular calls to the capital, Funchal, including a New Year’s Eve visit for the spectacular celebratory firework display. The diverse range of destinations featuring on our new Canaries programme doesn’t stop there. The isolated, emerald-green Azores – once a stopping point for Transatlantic flying boats – are incredibly scenic and rich in history; La Coruña and Vigo display a splash of Spanish flair; and Agadir and Casablanca add a cultural Moroccan twist to your journey. 86 Visit fredolsencruises.com, contact your travel agent or call 0800 0355 105
