    Funchal/Madeira, arrival 14.00 hrs

    It is hard to believe there are so many surprising contrasts on Madeira, Portugal’s “island of eternal spring”. Setting out from Funchal, a jeep tour of Madeira* will lead you to fishing villages and up to the 1,500 m (4,921 ft) high Paul da Serra plateau. Alternatively, a levada hike* will take you along the famous irrigation system through a stunning landscape. Taking a tukxi through Funchal* – an electric vehicle with open sides – will present life in the tiny alleys from a different perspective. It is also thrilling to explore the city at your own pace – for example, in the evening after dining in the on-board restaurant. Stroll along the promenade and mix with the locals in the cafes.

    Santa Cruz/La Palma/Spain,
    from 9.00 to 0.00 hrs

    With their mild climate and wonderful natural surroundings, the Canary Islands are a popular destination, particularly in autumn. But few visitors know the beauty of the three islands on the BREMEN’s route. You will visit La Palma first, where the volcanic landscape rises up steeply before you. With its 16th- and 17th-century buildings, the coastal city of Santa Cruz is of great cultural and historic value. Take the opportunity here to explore the old town at your own pace. Nature lovers can take a ride to the Caldera de Taburiente National Park* along breathtaking escarpments to one of the world’s largest erosion craters. The north of La Palma* is remote and pristine.

    Monday, 14.10.2019

    San Sebastian/La Gomera, from 8.00 to 0.00 hrs

    Small villages invite you to get to know the country and people. As an explorer, you will find yourself in famous company in San Sebastian on the island of La Gomera. This is where Columbus set out for America. Your route, however, will take you to Garajonay National Park*, past banana plantations to evergreen laurels and dense ferns. The cloud forest of the UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site will let your fantasy take flight on a hike through the El Cedro rainforest*, one of the oldest in the world.

    Tuesday, 15.10.2019

    Puerto de la Estaca/El Hierro, from 8.00 to 18.00 hrs

    The grand forces of nature have even shaped El Hierro, the smallest of the Canary Islands. Away from the tourist routes, the BREMEN will help you to discover an unspoilt landscape on a hike through eucalyptus and pine forests* or on an island tour* to idyllic villages.

    Cape Verde (Sao Vicente, Santo Antao, Sao Nicolao )

    A sea full of contrasts awaits you on Cape Verde. Gentle bays, fine beaches, desert landscapes, magnificent mountains and lush forests will shed a special light on features such as the colonial treasures and African joie de vivre on these islands rarely explored by tourists. The cultural capital is Mindelo on Sao Vicente. Along the seafront promenade, at the African market and in the old town, a walking tour of Mindelo* will introduce this melting pot of cultures. Mindelo and Baia das Gatas* provide a fascinating contrast: pure nature, created by elemental forces and demonstrated by the bizarre lava formations in the “bay of cats”. Alternatively, you can travel away from paved roads and go off-road* to delve deep inland for spectacular views of mountain massifs and volcanic craters. The untamed natural elements have also given Santo Antao an unmistakeable look. The island of mountains, wind and water is a true hiker’s paradise. Travelling on foot through the fertile Paul Valley will bring you particularly close to nature on the pristine island of Santo Antao*. Alternatively, be enveloped by the scent of eucalyptus on a scenic journey* on former trading routes – with insights into the production of the traditional grogue. The seldom-visited island of Sao Nicolao seems virtually untouched. Dragon trees, protected thanks to their valuable resin, line your route. On a hike through a bizarre mountain world*, you will find out how much effort is required to farm the very steep slopes. Alternatively, enjoy island impressions* that range from high ridges to lush green valleys and picturesquely situated villages. Unforgettable – just like the diversity of this cruise during golden October days.
