Alexander von Humboldt II:
Cartagena (ES) - Agadir (MA)

11 October - 22 October 2016

If the long autumn is getting on your nerves there is a simple solution: a sailing vacation! Enjoy two beatiful ports on two continents in just 10 days of sailing on board of Alexander von Humbold II. Discover local cultures (you must try the Moroccan cuisine!) and re-charge your batteries for the long winter ahead.

Ports

Cartagena is a city in the southeast of Spain along the Mediterranean coast and one of the most important naval ports in Spain (also historically). It is the main military base and a home to a large naval shipyard. The Old Town is limited by five small hills: Molinete, Monte Sacro, Monte de San José, Despeñaperros and Monte de la Concepción, following the example of Rome. Enjoy the Spanish culture of food and beverages! Try some tasty tapas, local wine and fresh caught sea food.

Agadir, situated at the foot of the Atlas Mountains, boasts 10 km of sandy beaches which you can enjoy for over 300 sunny days a year. After lazing about for awhile, take a refreshing dip in the ocean and take some time to visit the Berber Heritage Museum. Not to forget a beautiful marina with its Moorish architecture!

  • Annette (18) Denmark
