New years eve in the Canary Islands and Madeira Cruise
Bid the year goodbye with tons of fun and Pullmantur
Spend the last days of December 2019 and the first days of 2020 on Pullmantur's fabulous End of Year Canary Islands and Madeira Cruise. Over the course of a total of 8 days and 7 nights you will visit the main monuments and wonders of the main Canary Islands and the portuguese island of Madeira -with stops in its capital city, Funchal.
This Pullmantur cruise solely takes place on this special, previously mentioned period. This itinerary offers two possible departures ports in the Canary Islands: the island of Gran Canaria or the island of Tenerife. In both cases, after 7 nights, your voyage will conclude at the port where you chose to board the ship. If you start in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, your next destinations will be Tenerife, Funchal, Lanzarote, Fuerteventura and return to Gran Canaria. If, on the other hand, you choose to board in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Gran Canaria will be the penultimate island you will visit prior to returning to Tenerife.
The End of Year Canary Islands and Madeira Cruise provides travellers with a unique opportunity to visit Spain and Portugal in a single, seven-night voyage. While on this trip you can discover the wonders of each location, visiting sites including the Canary Museum, located in Gran Canaria, and Teide National Park in Tenerife, the Museum of the Photography in Funchal, the capital of Madeira, and the Timanfaya National Park in Lanzarote.
The best way to end the year is to do it from the Canary Islands
One of the highlights of Pullmantur's End of Year Canary Islands and Madeira Cruise is the island of Gran Canaria, the third largest in extension within the entire archipelago. This island is famously referred to as a "mini continent" due to its diversity. While here, make sure to visit key locations like Tamadaba Natural Park, very close to Agaete, Plaza de Santa Ana, located in its capital, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria or the Convent of San Antonio of Arucas, among other sites.
Another stop on this Pullmantur cruise is Tenerife, the Canary island where the Teide volcano, the highest mountain in Spain, is located. You can see it within Cañadas del Teide National Park, one of the island's main attractions, before visiting cities like Santa Cruz de Tenerife and San Cristóbal de La Laguna, which are home to enclaves like the Guimerá Theater and the Plaza de la Candelaria, as well as Casa Salizar and the Monastery of Santa Catalina.
Another of the Canary Islands that you will see on the End of Year Canary Islands and Madeira Cruise is Lanzarote, the easternmost island in the archipelago. Home to a hundred volcanoes, most of them already inactive, it boasts beaches with white and dark sands. Of all that is to be seen in Lanzarote, the Cueva de los Verdes, which holds the title of the largest underwater cave in the world, is especially worth mentioning. Save time to visit Timanfaya National Park, home to some of the most spectacular natural scenery in Spain.

Celebrate New Year's Eve off the coast of Funchal
To end the year in the best possible way, this Pullmantur cruise offers you the chance to celebrate 31 December in the capital of the Portuguese island of Madeira. Also, on New Year’s Eve, one of the most magical and delightful evenings of the year, the ship will moor off the port of Funchal without docking, so you can see the spectacular firework display that the city organizes to welcome the new year.
Funchal's main attractions include the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Assumption, museums such as that of Electricity or Sacred Art, the Botanical Garden, which has all sorts of lovely flowers, and the Monte Palace Tropical Garden, an authentic paradise for nature lovers, spanning 70,000 square meters and home to a wide collection of exotic plants from the most remote places in the world.
This route will be completed with a stop in Fuerteventura, the second largest island in the Canary Islands archipelago. This Pullmantur destination offers visitors a great range of picturesque landscapes, such as the legendary Tindaya Mountain, which is the centre of many local myths. It is also an ideal place in the Canary Islands for nature lovers to spend time in, because it has countless footpaths that connect the different volcanic features and beautiful marine areas that are waiting to be discovered. In fact, the area is the perfect place to practice a number of water sports, but especially windsurfing.
