Following Magellan. This is the first leg of Bark Europa’s voyage celebrating the 500th anniversary of Ferdinand Magellan’s adventures. Board the Tall Ship in Seville, Spain – the starting port of the great explorer’s expedition. Over the following 10 days you will make your way towards the Atlantic and sail towards Tenerife. The Canary Islands are famous for year-round good weather, and a favorite among sailors crossing the ocean. The ideal voyage to end the summer season, this trip will surely charge your batteries for the coming autumn. Open to Windseekers of 15 years and older. Limited places in 2-person cabins available.
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!

"When anchored at sea in the sun, I had not a care in the world"
Barnabas (22) Hungary
"IT WAS AN ABSOLUTE JOY TO STEER FOR HOURS WHEN THE WIND WAS BLOWING AND EVEN WHEN IT WAS COMPLETELY DEAD. I LOVED TO SEE THE SEA, I LOVED THE SILENCE OF THE OCEAN."
Annette (18) Denmark
"I have met new people, been up in the mast, seen indescribable sunsets and laughed a lot. Learning how to sail a ship has been the coolest thing I have done so far and I have confidence in what I do now"
