Santa Cruz de Tenerife (ES) - Santa Cruz de Tenerife (ES)

06 November - 13 November 2016

Week voyage at the Canarian Ilands! Come aboard the Alexander von Humboldt II to enjoy the sunny Canary Islands in the middle of autumn! Discover the local culture and make use of good winds for which the region is known. Explore the tropical nature with beautiful forests and crystal-clear water. Look carefully and you might some dolphins and even whales. On board you participate in the daily working of the ship alongside professional seamen, standing lookout, manning the helm, helping in the galley, hoisting sail and voluntarily have the chance to climb the rigging/mast. Open for all Windseekers, minimum age 15 years.

Ports

Santa Cruz de Tenerife is the shared capital of the Canary Islands, together with Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. The central square Plaza de España is a real eye-catcher, situated between the ocean and the old, bustling city centre. Lose yourself in the crowded alleys, find a spot on one of the terraces, or leave town and discover the rugged volcanic landscape. The museum of Nature and Man is worth a visit. Chances are you’ll find pilot whales in the waters around Tenerife, so keep an eye out!
