Morgenster: Santa Cruz de Tenerife (ES) - Santa Cruz de Tenerife (ES)
25 January - 31 January 2020
Canary Islands break. Leave the northern winter behind and exchange it for the subtropical archipelago off the coast of Africa. Board the Morgenster in Tenerife to embark on a sailing adventure between the various islands. Visit more or less remote places, enjoy the blue sea, exotic wildlife and new landscapes of volcanic islands. Take in the local culture and spend relaxing 6 days on board, forgetting about your daily worries. Steer the impressive Tall Ship, climb the masts, search the waves for dolphins and try your hand at navigation. In between sailing duties and visiting the islands relax on deck with your favorite book or join in the singing with the crew. Open to all Windseekers aged 15 and over.
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!
