Day 7 - Funchal

Arrive: Wed 07 April 2021 at 09:00 / Depart: Wed 07 April 2021 at 18:00

The picturesque whitewashed capital of this mountainous Portuguese island, 350 miles off the coast of Africa, has a timeless charm, delightfully enhanced by a benign climate that fills this ‘floating garden' with the year round colours and perfumes of subtropical flowers and fruit. Much painted by Sir Winston Churchill, Madeira has been offering the British visitor a warm welcome for three centuries, its famous wine the perfect aid to total relaxation!

Day 8 - La Palma

Arrive: Thu 08 April 2021 / Depart: Thu 08 April 2021

Our tour will take us to the oldest part of the island and its lush vegetation. From Santa Cruz de La Palma, we will go to the viewpoint Mirador de San Bartolo de La Glaga, situated right on the edge of two deep-cut gorges. Our tour will take us to the oldest part of the island and its lush vegetation. From Santa Cruz de La Palma, we will go to the viewpoint Mirador de San Bartolo de La Glaga, situated right on the edge of two deep-cut gorges. From here we travel north to the evergreen forest Los Tilos, where there are many indigenous plats of the island, such as the Canarian holly tree, heather, strawberry tree and the Canarian bellflower. Continuing, we visit the attractive little town of Los Sauces. An aperitif is served in a typical Canarian restaurant, then we are given a little free time before we head down the coast; there is an optional walk through a banana plantation, whilst enjoying a panoramic view of the steep coast and natural seawater pools called ‘Charco Azul'. On the return journey, we will pass through San Andrés. There is some optional walking over uneven ground involved in this tour, approximately 1 hour, as well as a few steps to be negotiated.

Day 9 - Tenerife

Arrive: Fri 09 April 2021 / Depart: Fri 09 April 2021

The lively, cosmopolitan capital of the largest of the Canaries, Santa Cruz has much of architectural and historical interest to offer. Easily reached are the elegant beach resort of Puerto de la Cruz, the lively leisure complex of Playa de las Americas, the banana and pineapple plantations of the beautiful Orotava Valley, and the stunning volcanic scenery and views of El Teide National Park, dominated by the 12,000ft snow-tipped peak of Spain's highest mountain. From Santa Cruz we drive inland to La Laguna, the islands second city as well as the cultural and religious capital. Driving through pine forests affords the occasional glimpse of snow capped Mount Teide before arriving at the 'Pyramids of Guimar'. Since 1981, famous anthropologist Thor Heyerdahl has been investigating the step pyramids in Guimar similar to those found in Mexico, Peru and ancient Mesopotamia. The park provides an interesting insight into the theories surrounding their origin.

Day 10 - Gran Canaria

Arrive: Sat 10 April 2021 / Depart: Sat 10 April 2021

The thriving capital of Gran Canaria, third largest island of the Canaries, Las Palmas is within easy reach of the famous Playa del Ingles beach and the magnificent palm-fringed and Sahara-like dunes of Maspalomas. In quieter corners of the island attractive old towns like Teror and Arucas (the latter the island's ‘banana capital') invite exploration, while inland Gran Canaria's fretted volcanic landscapes of gorges, craters and mountains rising to 6,500ft offer memorable sightseeing.

Day 11 - Lanzarote

Arrive: Sun 11 April 2021 / Depart: Sun 11 April 2021

Arrecife is the gateway to the island of Lanzarote, whose desolate yet dramatic lunar-like landscapes and coal-black sand beaches were shaped by 18th century volcanic eruptions. Ride by camel to the still hissing rocks of the great ‘Fire Mountains' in Timanfaya National Park – then cool down with a glass or two of wine and delicious paella in a local seafront restaurant!

Day 12 - At Sea

Day 13 - At Sea

Day 14 - La Coruna

Arrive: Wed 14 April 2021 / Depart: Wed 14 April 2021

At the north western tip of Spain, La Coruna is Galicia's largest city - from where in 1588 the Spanish Armada sailed to its fate. It's the port of call for nearby Santiago de Compostela, in whose ornate 11th century cathedral rests the body of St James. With Jerusalem and Rome, it remains one of Christendom's most holy places - to which in the middle ages up to two million pilgrims came each year.

Balmoral From Fred Olsen Cruise Lines

Balmoral is the largest of our ocean-going cruise ships, yet is still small enough to navigate size-restricted waterways such as the Kiel Canal, providing fantastic scenic cruising opportunities, and retains the warm, intimate and friendly atmosphere that the Fred. Olsen fleet is renowned for. Balmoral is named after the Scottish residence of the British Royal Family, and the Scottish theme runs throughout the main dining venues – the Ballindalloch, Avon and Spey – where guests can enjoy tantalising menus prepared by our expert chefs. Featuring 710 well-appointed rooms and suites and a selection of comfortable lounges, bars and inviting public areas which have been extensively refitted and improved as part of Fred. Olsen's fleet-wide refurbishment programme, Show less Balmoral provides guests with ample space in which to relax and share a memorable cruise experience with hundreds, not thousands, of fellow travellers. And, as our guests have come to expect, there is always an array of superb entertainment on offer throughout the day, from lectures and hobby classes to live cabaret and comedians, ensuring you can make the most of your time on board
