Sun and Nature of the Canaries

Sun and Nature of the Canaries

From EUR €1,955


A short break from your daily routine
Neither golden autumn nor the white of winter – the last days of November are hanging over the calendar just like a sad grey rain cloud. If you don’t feel like doom and gloom, leave your daily routine and the hot water bottle behind and escape to the islands of eternal spring. On the Canaries, you can recharge your batteries with plenty of sun.

Sailing with the trade winds around the Canary Islands
Beautiful days of sailing are guaranteed, when the Azores high sends steady north-easterly trade winds
to the Canaries. At comfortable four to five Beaufort and agreeable temperatures of around 20 degrees, the windjammer explores the sunny shores of Gran Canaria, La Gomera and Tenerife over a long weekend.

Magic forest and moonscape: two famous national parks
These two UNESCO world natural heritage sites could hardly be more different: While the evergreen cloud
forest Garajonay at the heart of La Gomera offers fascinating scenery made up of rivers, waterfalls and dense moss, Tenerife’s Las Cañadas del Teide national park is extremely dry. With tall lava tongues and bizarre rock formations, its volcanic landscape looks almost like the surface of the moon.

Vessel Type: Tall Ship (Sailing) Length: 105 metres Passenger Capacity: 96 Built: 2001 Launched in 2001, Sea Cloud II is a stunning vessel, built along traditional lines, but offering deluxe accommodation. She combines timeless elegance of sailing ships of the past with the highest safety standards and the luxurious comfort of modern cruise ships. Just like her legendary sister ship Sea Cloud, the 29,600 square feet of sails is set by hand which is a truly magical sight. Built to accommodate 96 passengers in five star luxury, she offers a range of beautifully appointed suites and cabins which are furnished with great style. All accommodations have outside views and the bathrooms, in light marble, are unusually spacious and extremely comfortable. The finest, carefully chosen fabrics, combined with leather, rattan and other materials, brass and gold, precious woods and marble together create an impressive ensemble. No expense has been spared to create a sympathetic ambience in both the accommodations and public areas and this is reflected throughout the vessel. Public areas include an elegant lounge, library, fitness centre, boutique, lido bar and hospital. The single sitting dining room is airy and modern and the quality of the cuisine and service will be to the highest of standards, as one would expect on a Sea Cloud cruise. Relax on the Lido deck and experience the natural grandeur of travelling under sail, rekindling memories of a bygone age. Please note deck and suite plans are indicative only and may vary slightly.


Day 1 - Days 1 & 2 - Las Palmas/Gran Canaria
With its black volcano almost 2,000 metres (6,561 foot) high and endless white beaches along the coastline, the island of Gran Canaria displays a huge variety of landscapes. A "continent in miniature" with rugged rock formations, dense pine forests, dry valleys and reservoirs in the interior, lush vegetation in the north, shimmering dune landscapes in the south and weirdly shaped cliffs in the west. Almost half the island has been registered by UNESCO as a Biosphere Reserve. The capital, Las Palmas, is no less colourful, with its port and history stretching back 500 years. The showpiece of this historic old town is the magnificent Santa Ana Cathedral.
Day 2 - Day 3 - San Sebastián/La Gomera & Los Cristianos/Tenerife
Many people consider La Gomera to be the most wildly romantic island in the Canaries. Rugged gorges, craggy hillsides, fertile valleys and evergreen cloud forests characterise the landscape. The Garajonay National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, embraces the whole central mountain area and is an unusual little spot. Ancient bay trees, heather bushes as high as trees and metre-high ferns form a cloud forest where treemoss hangs from the trees and mosses cling to gnarled branches - a truly mystical natural spectacle which has existed for millions of years.
Day 3 - Day 4 - Los Cristianos/Tenerife
