Book an escape to the Canary Islands this winter
The all-inclusive nature of cruising with Pullmantur enables you to enjoy a range of unlimited alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, as well as all meals, entertainment and much more during your time on board the ship. Although temperatures may be starting to drop across Europe and the Mediterranean, there are still plenty of great-value cruising options available if you head further south.
Situated off the western coast of northern Africa, the Canary Islands offer a fine blend of Spanish and African cultures with enviably warmer temperatures. From November 2017 through to April 2018, Pullmantur Cruises will operate a series of itineraries around these picturesque islands, which are known for their charming towns, golden beaches and mesmerising landmarks.
Each sailing will see passengers travel aboard the amenity-filled Horizon, which offers a range of restaurants, bars, lounges, a card room, video arcade, library, casino and much more. It goes without saying that, after each day of relaxation, you will certainly appreciate a spacious and relaxing place to rest your head, as well as the opportunity to enjoy a good meal and maybe a drink or two.
Departing out of either Gran Canaria or Tenerife, each itinerary will take you on a relaxing journey around these beautiful islands. There is a wide variety of options to choose from, with short four-night escapes, seven-night journeys entirely based in the Canary Islands and journeys that also combine Madeira and the Mediterranean.
Tenerife is home to the impressive Mount Teide, which is the third largest volcano in the world when measured from its base on the ocean floor. A cable car journey will enable you to travel close to the summit of this impressive natural landmark and provide you with unforgettable panoramic vistas. Contrastingly, Gran Canaria is known for being home to one of the largest cities in the Canary Islands, Las Palmas, which is home to an impressive cathedral and a huge four-kilometre beach, which offers the perfect place to soak up the sun.
Sailing out of either of these two ports, the four-night sailings will see you travel to Lanzarote and Fuerteventura, while the seven-night sailing adds La Palma to the itinerary. Each port offers distinctively unique flavour of the Canary Islands and provides a different series of cultural and natural landmarks to explore.
Furthermore, there are also options available to embark on a journey over the respective Christmas and New Year periods. Departing out of either Gran Canaria on the 20th December or Tenerife on the 21st December, you can enjoy a truly festive sailing and experience Christmas Day on the beach. If you are looking to see in the New Year, you may prefer the seven-night departures out of Gran Canaria on the 27th December and out of Tenerife on the 28th December.
While cooler temperatures of winter may only be just around the corner, the Canary Islands will offer golden beaches that stay no cooler than 20 degrees from November through to March.
