Majestic city panorama: Taroudant
Taroudant was once the residence of a Berber ruler, a rich hub for caravans and an important place for trade. The town is lovingly referred to as “Marrakech’s little sister”. The lively Medina is entered through an imposing wall, in front of which lie swathes of olive and orange plantations, and behind which you will see the snow-covered peaks of the High Atlas mountains.
The diversity of the Canary Islands
On this cruise, you visit six of the seven Canary Islands, stopping at Gran Canaria, Tenerife, Lanzarote, El Hierro, La Palma and La Gomera. Walking along the promenades, through narrow alleyways or alongside the sea, you can experience the diverse character of these islands: from cosmopolitan style in Las Palmas to quiet introspection in rustic San Sebastián.
Pure nature: stunning national parks
Magical trade mists, gnarled pine trees, babbling head streams – the Canary Islands’ national parks guarantee protection for some of their most outstanding ecosystems. Whilst Garajonay’s misty evergreen forest boasts over 1000 animal species, Caldera de Taburiente and Las Cañadas del Teide impress with their rugged volcanic craters and rock formations.
