Feel the powerful breath of the Atlantic Ocean, go to the top of an extinct volcano, walk around the rainforest, watch whales, look for the remains of the sunken mythical country of Atlantis, wander around the old city from which Columbus set out to find the western route to India - all this is possible in the Canary Islands.

At 18:00 we’ll check in on a yacht in Santa Cruz, Tenerife, buy some food and have dinner. Santa Cruz is the largest city of the Canary Islands. Here you can visit a long beach, take a walk in the Garcia Sanabria park, spend time in the many cafes with delicious coffee and, of course, go shopping for souvenirs.
Today we’ll sail to San Sebastian in La Gomera island. Here we will see banana plantations, fabulous bays, and tropical forests with parrots and lianas. There is a great chance we’ll see dolphins and whales along the way. San Sebastian was the starting point in the first journey of the great Columbus. The city is famous for its interesting culture, delicious cuisine and excellent service.
We’ll sail to the island of La Palma. La Palma is one of the most unusual islands in the Canary Archipelago. The main attraction in the south of the island is the Tenegia volcano, the last eruption of which occurred in 1971. You can relax on the black volcanic sand of Echentive beach.
We’ll sail to La Restinga (El Hierro). We’ll visit the cozy town of La Resting with colorful landscapes overlooking the sea and incredibly clear water.
Moving on to Valais Gran Rey (La Gomera). Here you can go to the beaches of the Vale Gran Rey resort or visit the sights of the island, for example, Garahonai National Park.
Sailing to Los Gigantes, Tenerife. Here you can climb the mountains to the pirate village, hiding somewhere among the cliffs. In the village, we will eat and see the sights - a centennial tree, where pirates used to gather in the old days, the church that looks like a gingerbread house, and hedges made from cacti.
Going back to Santa Cruz, Tenerife. We can once again admire the local sights or go to the north of the island, which is full of greenery.
At 9:00 we’ll check out from the yacht.
We will visit the four islands of the Canary Archipelago: Tenerife, La Gomera, La Palma and El Hierro. Each of them is interesting in its own way, and we will have the opportunity to see and admire their nature and sights.
