    Santa Cruz/Tenerife/Spain, from 13.00 to 0.00 hrs

    Highlights on the Canary Islands
    While the cold still reigns at home, travel into springtime with the HANSEATIC. You will warm to the Canary Island of Tenerife, a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site known for its mild climate, from the outset. Discover Spain’s highest mountain and the unique endemic flora and fauna in Las Canadas del Teide National Park*. Immerse yourself in Mediterranean flair by following your evening meal on board with a walk through stunning Santa Cruz – an atmosphere you can also enjoy on La Gomera when strolling through the streets of San Sebastian.

    Wednesday, 14.03.2018

    San Sebastian/La Gomera, from 8.00 to 18.00 hrs

    A subtropical climate and millions of years of erosion have given the island its character. Be enchanted by the timeless beauty of Garajonay National Park* with an ancient witches’ meeting place at its centre, or hike through the El Cedro rainforest*. The laurel trees are often wreathed in mist, and a magical aura extends all the way to the top of Garajonay, over 1,300 m (4,265 ft) high.

    Thursday, 15.03.2018

Marvel at human and botanical origins alike when you visit the island art of Cesar Manrique and the Cactus Garden* with around 1,000 species. This symbiosis of art and nature will prove just as fascinating as the artist’s house. Below the surface, he converted large volcanic bubbles into a living space. Alternatively, leave the usual routes and discover Lanzarote’s hidden treasures*: visit the houses of important figures such as Nobel Prize winner Jose Saramago and actor Omar Sharif.

As well as visiting this landmark, you will walk through the centre of Casablanca* into the hustle and bustle of the market and bazaar and visit Rick’s Cafe. A drink here is a must to pay homage to Humphrey Bogart and the classic film. One of Morocco’s four royal cities, the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Rabat* seems like something from the Arabian Nights.

    Sunday, 18.03.2018

    Cadiz/Spain, from 9.00 to 19.00 hrs

    The Mausoleum of King Mohammed V in the Arabic-Andalusian style and the Andalusian gardens set the mood for Spanish architecture. Cadiz, for example, seems like an open-air museum in which Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Romans and Moors have clearly left their mark. From here, explore Seville, the capital of Andalusia*, with the majestic royal palace of Alcazar. In the region around Cadiz, your senses will be seduced by the white villages of Arcos de la Frontera and sherry in Jerez* with traditional wine production. Rugged cliffs, pine forests and marshland provide the naturally stunning setting for a walk in La Brena Nature Reserve*.

    Monday, 19.03.2018

    Portimao/Portugal, from 8.00 to 14.00 hrs
