Canary Islands Cruises

Sun, sea and more. Cruise around Canary Islands

Uncover an archipelago where the natural wonders are as varied as the ports on our small-ship Canary Island cruises. From sleepy fishing villages and colonial cities, to misty forests and volcanic, lunar-like landscapes, each island offers something new to discover, from the smallest, El Hierro, to the largest, Tenerife. You can explore La Gomera’s UNESCO-listed national park, tour the home of Lanzarote’s most famous artist, unwind on the beaches of Fuerteventura, or admire the pretty architecture of La Palma – it’s easy to see why the Canaries are so popular.

The Canary Islands are known for their year-round sun, making them the ideal cruise destination for basking in the warmth of the ‘winter sun’. Plus, our Canaries cruises often call at the subtropical islands of Madeira and Cape Verde, and the exotic shores of Morocco.

These are some of the ports you can visit on our cruises to the Canary Islands
