England (Scilly Isles , Penzance )
A vivid contrast to this unfolds on the British Scilly Isles. After landing on Tresco in the Zodiacs, you will feel like you are in the tropics when you visit the gardens with over 4,000 exotic plants. The neighbouring island is also appealing from a natural perspective and you can experience it when walking on St Mary’s*. Located at the entrance to the English Channel, in Penzance you can view the charming countryside of Cornwall and Land’s End*, not to mention the spectacular view of the tidal island of St Michael’s Mount. Bosvigo House Garden and Trelissick Gardens* impressively attest to the British passion for gardens. Finally, set sail for the other side of Europe entirely: the Iberian Peninsula.
