Canary Islands Cruise Guide & Travel Tips

Highlights of the Canary Islands

While the Canary Islands are technically an outlying province of Spain, they offer visitors a distinct island atmosphere perfect for a mix of adventure and relaxation. A trip here might include:
  • Hikes up the colorful mountains. 
  • Sailing adventures.
  • Nothing. You read that right - some of our most popular cruises in the Canary Islands have one goal: unwinding in the tropical sun as you relax aboard your luxurious vessel.
Most of our featured tours actually just stop in the Canary Islands en route to other destinations. For the bold explorers, our Trans-Atlantic cruises offer over two weeks of sea-faring excitement from Barbados all the way to Spain. Others combine time in the Canary Islands with stops in Morocco, Cape Verde, and coastal Spain.
