Black sand beaches and lunar-like volcanic landscapes are just two of the things which make cruises to the Canary Islands so popular. This scattering of islands in the Atlantic Ocean has become a popular pick for party-goers and families alike. They’re packed with history – in Gran Canaria you can walk the cobbled streets of the capital, Las Palmas, and on the second smallest island, La Gomera, you can visit the house where Christopher Columbus lived. There are plenty of thrills to be had, too, from quad biking through the hills of La Palma, to a 4x4 adventure past Fuerteventura’s sandy coves and traditional villages. If you fancy an underwater adventure, you can try our submarine trip off the coast of Lanzarote, or for the best views, climb Tenerife’s most-famous landmark, Mount Teide. A lot of our Canary Island cruises drop anchor at Madeira, too, so you can explore this Portuguese island with a cable car ride to a hilltop church, and brave a wicker basket toboggan run for the return journey.Show More
