From the Canary Islands to the Mediterranean cruise

From Gran Canaria to Malaga, enjoy a journey through Europe and Africa with Pullmantur

The border area between Europe and Africa, where the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea meet, boasts stunning landmasses like ​​the Canary Islands, the island of Madeira, the south of Andalusia and the western coast of Morocco. Discover all of these wondrous lands aboard Pullmatur's cruise From the Canary Islands to the Mediterranean.

Over the course of 8 nights and 7 days this Pullmantur cruise takes you to the key monuments and landscapes that define the Canary Islands and Morocco in Africa, as well as iconic spots in Europe, such as those located on the Portuguese island of Madeira and the Spanish cities of Cadiz and Malaga.

Although the trip begins in Gran Canaria, we also give you the option of coming aboard on the island of Tenerife. Of course, in this case, your voyage will take seven days instead of eight. Whatever your choice, you'll have plenty of monuments ahead, with stops scheduled in La Orotava, a key tourist location on Tenerife, as well as at Casablanca's Copper Souk.

Travel to the Canary Islands and Madeira, the outer borders of the European Union

Gran Canaria, the starting point for Pullmatur's cruise From the Canary Islands to the Mediterranean, boasts so many fascinating points of interest that it is one of the Canary Islands most popular spots. Here in Gran Canaria you can't miss visiting Tamadaba National Park, home to one of the most spectacular landscapes on the Canary Islands, as well as the Plaza de Santa Ana and the Barrio de Triana in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.

The next destination of this Pullmantur cruise is Tenerife, whose capital, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, is full of many of the most outstanding monuments in the Canary Islands, such as the Plaza de España, Plaza de la Candelaria, and the Church of the Conception. Likewise, traveling to Tenerife means visiting San Cristobal de la Laguna, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and seeing exceptional Spanish landscapes, such as those at Cañadas del Teide National Park.
