Canary Islands cruises from the UK

All year round sun, brilliant white and black sand beaches, dramatic landscapes and world-class nature reserves make the volcanic Canary Islands and colourful Madeira ideal cruise destinations. Soak up magnificent scenery, sample seafood in a harbour cafe, wander through historic streets or simply relax in the sun on a Canary Islands cruise.

Gran Canaria boasts volcanic landscapes, quaint whitewashed villages, superb beaches and the contrasting greenery of Palmitos Nature Park. Tenerife is known for its lush plantations, and the volcanic 'moonscape' of Mount Tiede National Park. The island’s capital, Santa Cruz is a haven of tempting shops, and traditional churches and museums to visit.

Fuerteventura's proximity to the Sahara desert blesses it with particularly sunny weather, perfect for enjoying some of the best beaches in the Canaries.

The beaches of Lanzarote have long been a favourite of the British holidaymaker, along with the amazing solidified lava landscapes, best viewed from Fire Mountain. La Palma, one of the smallest Canary Islands, is known for its picturesque villages and magnificent volcanic crater, the Caldera de Taburiente. Once a popular port on routes to America, it has colonial buildings and Spanish architecture to explore.

The ‘garden isle’ of Madeira is awash with colour, with sub-tropical plants in the parks, botanical gardens and vibrant flower markets of Funchal, the island’s capital. The lush and mountainous islands of the Azores support a huge variety of exotic trees and flowers and are an ideal cruise destination.
