PONANT invites you to discover exceptional sites during this brand-new cruise between Spain and Portugal, the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. Enjoy this unforgettable 12-day journey aboard Le Lyrial, combining stunning island landscapes and cities brimming with history.
Your cruise will begin on the island of Gran Canaria, in Las Palmas. You will sail to Lanzarote, where you will admire the volcanic landscapes that are so typical of the area.
Your ship will then drop anchor at La Gomera. This tiny island with lush vegetation is a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its biosphere reserve.
After calling at Santa Cruz de Tenerife, from which you will be able to discover the wonderful volcanic landscapes of Teide National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, you will leave Spain for Portugal and Madeira, the “island of eternal spring”. Discovering the levadas, a clever irrigation system widely used on this mountainous island for transporting water, will also be an opportunity to admire the beautiful scenery.
Your ship will then set a course for Spain, where you will sail up the Guadalquivir River to call at Seville. Among the treasures of the Andalusian capital, you will discover the cathedral and the Alcazar, both listed as World Heritage by UNESCO. You will also call in Cadiz, one of the country’s oldest cities, built on a rock and surrounded by the sea.
Then you will head to Málaga, end of your cruise.
