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.

Canary Islands Cruise Holiday Highlights

You can taste wine from a volcanic vineyard in Lanzarote, walk the black sands of Fuerteventura and explore the National Parks of La Palma - each day can offer a different experience on a cruise to the Canary Islands.

You can island-hop, city-swap and explore all that the region has to offer. And while there is undoubtedly more to enjoy than the beaches and blue skies, some days the turquoise waters and mountain-backed shores might just prove irresistible.
