Bark Europa:
Lisbon (PT) - Tenerife (ES)

22 September - 03 October 2015

In September the Bark Europa start the special voyage commemorating the 400th year anniversary of the discovery of Cape Horn. This will be the second part of this special voyage where the first leg started in the Dutch city of Hoorn, birth town and sponsor of Cornelis Schouten, the discoverer of the Cape horn on 29th January 1616. Traditional vessels will bring the Bark Europa to the Texelse Reede, where from the 15th to the 19th century ships were awaiting the right weather conditions to start their voyage on the traditional trade routes. Bark EUROPA awaits us for an adventure exploring the oceans, via Lisbon, Tenerife, Cabo Verde, Salvador and Cape Horn to Punta Arenas. When possible the ship will make a a full Cape Horn rounding in the best maritime tradition, under sail only sails. You can join the second leg of the 400th year anniversary! Open to all ages, 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…

Tenerife is the largest of the Canary Islands, and a popular tourist destination. One of the largest Carnival festivals is hosted here, and for tourists there is a lot to see and do. But the island is large enough to escape mass tourism, so let its natural beauty seduce you to a hike or a drive around the island. You’ll find mountains to climb, cliffs overlooking bays, and ravines. The ‘Island of eternal spring’ is just what you need if you arrive fresh from your Journey!
