Ports

Plymouth is a coastal city in the south of England. Perfect for outdoor enthusiasts it is located near beautiful beaches and national park in Dartmoor. The city has a rich cultural life, with numerous art exhibitions and events. The National Marine Aquarium is the largest in the UK and offers a unique glimpse into marine world.

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!
