You will sail first to the Madeira also called the “Flower Island,” where you’ll explore for a day. You can hike, bike, or rent a car to see the whole island. With some luck you will see dolphins around the ship and spot whales nearby! Then you set sail for the Canary Islands, where you will berth at the island of La Palma. Open for all Windseekers, minimum age 15 years.

Ports

Lisbon has a long and varied history as a major trading hub, much of which is still visible in the old city centre. Discover Alfama, the old quarters with its many old alleys, steps and the Lisbon Cathedral. The famous tram line 28 will get you there – an experience in and of itself. And be sure to check out a fado concert if you want to learn about saudade – loss, yearning and comfort, all rolled into one. Emotions that all seafarers will get to know one way or the other…

La Palma is one of the Canary Islands archipelago on the Atlantic. The island's volcanic landscapes, lush tropical nature and rich wildlife make it a perfect spot for hiking adventures! Climb the Teneguia Volcano for amazing views, or visit the Caldera de Taburiente National Park. Take a walk along the Balcones de la avenida Maritima and visit the Maritime Museum with its replica of the ship sailed by Christopher Columbus.
