Home > Destinations > Canary Islands / Azores Cruise Deals
Boasting ideal year-round temperatures, miles of Sahara-style dunes and luscious pine forests, the Canary Islands stretch beyond imagination and become much more than the sandy seafront resorts which they’re known for. The dramatically varied landscapes can be enjoyed any month of the year, from Gran Canaria’s mountainous interior and the crashing waterfalls of La Palma to Tenerife’s Mount Teide, Lanzarote’s lava fields and Fuerteventura’s cacti. Each island has its own authentic character, not to mention the impeccable beauty of nearby archipelago, The Azores, which abounds with adventures, from world-class whale watching to paragliding.
