PONANT invites you to discover exceptional sites during this brand-new cruise between Spain and Portugal, the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. Enjoy this unforgettable 9-day journey aboard Le Lyrial, combining stunning island landscapes and cities brimming with history.
Your cruise will begin on the island of Gran Canaria, in Las Palmas. You will sail to Arrecife de Lanzarote, where you will admire the volcanic landscapes that are typical of the area.
Your ship will then drop anchor at La Gomera. This tiny island with lush vegetation is a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its biosphere reserve.
After calling at Santa Cruz de Tenerife, from which you will be able to discover the wonderful volcanic landscapes of Teide National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, you will leave Spain for Portugal and Madeira, the ‘island of eternal spring’. Discovering the levadas, a clever irrigation system widely used on this mountainous island for transporting water, will also provide an opportunity to admire the beautiful scenery.
You will also call in Cadiz, one of the country’s oldest cities, built on a rock and surrounded by the sea.
Then you will head to Malaga, end of your cruise.
