Canary Islands Cruise Holidays

The Canary Islands are a true slice of paradise
Four of Spain’s seven major national nature reserves are located among this volcanic archipelago – the volcanic crater of Mount Teide on Tenerife and Lanzarote’s Timanfaya National Park being just two. From foodie treasures to sipping the cream of the crop at Europe’s only coffee plantation, there's plenty more of this culinary Canary wonder on our Canary Island cruises.

Escape to the Canary Islands on a cruise holiday

It may be small, but the Canary Islands pack in a huge diversity of scenery to explore, from rugged mountains to golden beaches, lush greenery to desert dunes. There’s an equally varied range of activities on offer, too.

Take a look at some of the ports you can visit


With its 3,000 hours of sunshine a year, Fuerteventura is the perfect place to enjoy the rays and top up a tan especially when taking into account its excellent beaches.

La Palma

La Palma is called 'the fair isle because of its fabulous landscape and you will soon see why. Santa Cruz is one of the prettiest harbours among the islands and is easily explored on foot.


Cruises to Lanzarote's sunny climate are a big hit with sunbathers and swimmers, who relish its volcanic red, black and white sand beaches.


Our Tenerife cruises bring you close to one of the world's most varied landscapes, ranging from valleys and plantations to beaches, pinewoods and the volcanic 'moonscape' of Mount Teide National Park.
