There are chances to explore volcanic landscapes and idyllic gardens, unwind on gorgeous beaches and even witness the spectacular Geminid meteors, leaving you feel a world away from the December gloom being endured back home. Time at sea to relax and settle into life on board your ship, will leave you feeling refreshed and ready to experience the Canary Islands over four days. Visiting Gran Canaria makes for a perfect start; perhaps indulge in the island’s renowned warmth at the rolling sand dunes of Maspalomas, or seek-out the picturesque scenery of the Agaete Valley or Los Tilos forest. The ‘Pretty Island’ of La Palma is then yours to explore, with Santa Cruz serving as your gateway to an astonishing UNESCO-listed wonderland of varied landscapes, from San Antonio Volcanic Park – where natural gems such as the Teneguia Volcano await – to enchanted laurel forests waiting to share their secrets. The time in Tenerife that follows is sure to be a highlight; your extended visit is timed to coincide with the magical Geminid Meteor Shower, affording you the best chance to watch the darting lights of spellbinding ‘shooting stars’ as they streak across the sky. You can take the day to see majestic Mount Teide, or uncover the mysterious of the Güímar pyramids and poison gardens too. For a memorable conclusion to the Canarian adventures, at gorgeous La Gomera you’ve an opportunity to go in search of volcanic wonders and verdant forests once again, or even visit Fred. Olsen’s Hotel Jardin Tecina. Finally, before you head for home, you’re in for an authentic taste of Portugal’s diversity; there’s a visit to the ‘Garden Island’ of Madeira, a land of lush-green landscapes and beautiful botanical gardens, and a visit to Lisbon, to delve into the Portuguese capital’s rich maritime history.
