Christmas and New Years Voyage. If you like to do things differently, you should definitely consider spending your holidays on board the Alexander von Humboldt II. Enjoy a tropical sailing adventure instead of the busy holiday season. The Canaries boast wonderfully balmy weather and good winds all year round. Take in some sun to charge your batteries for the winter, enjoy sailing on the blue sea, admire the landscapes and discover wonderful wildlife. The official language on board is German. In addition extra, per person € 50, – for harbor fees, pilotage, etc. Surcharge for 2-bed cabin 25% p.p. For all Windseekers, minimum age 18 years.

Ports

Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is a cosmopolitan town, the shared capital (with Santa Cruz) of the Canary Islands. Situated on the ‘wet’ north side, the city feels more authentic than the touristy places on the ‘dry’ south side. Las Palmas offers beaches, cheap shopping, culture and excitement with a night life, primarily in the district of Vegueta. Its culture is decidedly Spanish, mixed with influences from all over the world, as Las Palmas’ port has been in operation for centuries.

    – by Anna

    Sailing is inherently a "green" activity. Although, like most of the other things we do on this planet, sailing does contribute to the environmental pollution, we do a lot on board to stop it. And hopefully good habits learned on …
