Cruise Canary Islands and Madeira
Bid farewell to 2017 aboard Pullmantur's Canary Islands and Madeira cruise
Between December 27, 2017 and January 2, 2018 Pullmantur's special Canary Islands and Madeira cruise takes place. Spend days and 7 nights exploring the Canary Islands and Madeira's famed landscapes, as well as their most outstanding monuments.
This Pullmantur cruise, only available during the previously mentioned days, begins and ends at the same port, which can either be Las Palmas de Gran Canaria or Santa Cruz de Tenerife. If you embark upon this special trip in the first city, you can visit Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Fuerteventura, Lanzarote, Funchal and wrap things up in Las Palmas once again. On the other hand, if you board in Tenerife, Gran Canaria will be the penultimate destination before returning to Tenerife.
In one way or another, Pullmantur's Canary Islands and Madeira cruise allows you to visit the most delightful sites in these overseas regions of Spain and Portugal, including Columbus's House in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, the Episcopal Palace in San Cristóbal de la Laguna, Betancuria Rural Park in Fuerteventura, Timanfaya National Park in Lanzarote or the famed Photography Museum in Funchal, the capital of Madeira.
Travel to the Canary Islands this New Year with Pullmantur
The island of Gran Canaria is the third largest in the Canarian archipelago and, due to its shape, is often called the "miniature continent". A visit to Gran Canaria requires a visit to the charming Triana neighbourhood and the iconic Plaza de Santa Ana in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. Don't miss the Convent of San Antonio de Arucas and Tamadaba Natural Park, near Agaete, which are two other major island locales that are worth visiting.
Our Pullmantur cruise's next stop is Tenerife, where you can check out the second co-capital of the Canaries, Santa Cruz de Tenerife. The island boasts the highest mountain of Spain, the Teide volcano, which is the major attraction in the Cañadas del Teide National Park. Also drop by Santa Cruz de Tenerife and San Cristóbal de La Laguna, where you can be dazzled by Plaza de España, La Candelaria and the Guimera Theatre.
In San Cristóbal de la Laguna you can admire unique monuments, such as Casa Salazar, a masterpiece of Canarian baroque architecture, and the Monastery of Santa Catalina, as well as the Museum of Science and the Cosmos. One the following day Pullmantur's Canary Islands and Madeira cruise takes you to Fuerteventura. Designated as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve since 2009, the island boasts two natural parks: Jandia and Betancuria Rural Park.

The next day, you will be able to do some sightseeing in Funchal.
The Cathedral or Cathedral of Our Lady of the Assumption, the Botanical Garden and Monte Palace Tropical Garden are three examples of great spots to see in Funchal.
