Featuring visits to all four of the Spanish archipelago’s main islands, for golden beaches and glorious scenery, rich culture and fascinating history, and even an unforgettable festival celebration, this is the beautiful Balearics at their very best. Nit de Foc – Mallorca’s annual ‘Night of Fire’ – is an extravaganza of parties, performance art and events, and your extended stay in Palma is an opportunity to experience it to the full. The largest, most exuberant celebrations take place in the capital; catch pop concerts, firework displays, the infamous ‘correfoc’ fire run and more, for an authentic taste of Mallorcan culture. Before immersing yourself in all the excitement of Nit de Foc, a visit to Menorca allows for a laid-back start to your Balearic Island-hopping adventure. A day in Ciutadella and a call at Mahón affords time to capture the very essence of Menorca; you could explore the capital’s charming streets and delve into centuries of history amongst ornate architecture and landmarks, or simply head to the beach for laid-back, blissful relaxation. There’s also a visit to Ibiza. With time to explore heart and highlights of Ibiza Town, you’ll discover there’s much more to this island than its famous party atmosphere and vibrant nightlife. Just a short stroll into Ibiza’s UNESCO-listed Old Town reveals historic sites dating back to the 16th century, while – even further off the well-trodden tourist track – quiet retreats of sleepy villages and postcard-perfect beaches await. Finally, two maiden Fred. Olsen calls make for a memorable end to your time in the Balearics. Returning to Mallorca, Puerto de Alcúdia is your gateway to the charming town of Alcúdia and Playa de Alcúdia inviting, seven-kilometre-long stretch of golden sands, while on Formentera, La Savina is the starting point for discovering Sant Francesc Xavier – the island’s capital – and some of the region’s best beaches.
