    The highlights of this cruise

    The EUROPA leaves the Canary Island of TENERIFE and sets sail for its neighbouring islands. The Canaries deserve to be nicknamed “the spring islands”. Once you leave the beaches behind, green forests and flourishing gardens await your explorations. In Caldera de Taburiente National Park*, LA PALMA offers walking trails to suit every taste. The crater that gives the park its name is surrounded by a chain of rugged mountains, the highest peak over 2,000 m (6,561 ft). If you don’t want to go quite that high, then walk through the dense pine forests and discover beautiful features such as the play of colour on the waterfall in the Barranco de las Angustias gorge. With around 600 km (373 mi.) of walking trails, LA GOMERA is also ideal for excursions. One of the most magical trails leads you into Garajonay National Park*. Moss-covered laurel trees, vibrant green ferns and babbling rivers give an impression of how the island must have looked millions of years ago. LANZAROTE is a cornucopia of Canary Islands nature. The volcanic cones glow in welcome on the horizon. An excursion* will take you to the centre of a landscape of rust-red plains, black volcanic rock and steaming holes in the ground. From the “spring islands”, it will take one day at sea to reach the North African coast. In CASABLANCA, Morocco’s largest city, French colonial heritage blends with Arab lifestyle to create a cosmopolitan feel. In addition to art deco buildings, the Hassan II Mosque dominates the bustling city: the minaret rises 210 m (689 ft) over the rooftops. Marrakech* has a reputation as an oriental fairytale.

    Visit the “Square of the Jugglers” and immerse yourself in the world of the Arabian Nights. Food stalls, snake charmers, fire-eaters and street traders with the most exotic of wares are just a few of the things you will find in the bustling medina. A day in PORTIMAO will also stimulate your senses. With steep red and gold slopes and sandy beaches, the Algarve is a scenic feast for the eyes. Our tip: culinary highlights await with an exclusive gourmet lunch* at the famous Vila Joya. There are many, many reasons to fall in love with LISBON: Baixa with the Elevador de Santa Justa, the yellow trams and the imaginative black and white mosaics on the pavements. It’s still worth leaving the city for an excursion to Sintra and the Palacio da Pena*: one of the world’s most magnificent palaces, it sits atop a thickly wooded mountain with brightly coloured facades that will make you curious to see its baroque rooms. You will reach PORTO* via the modern harbour of Leixoes. Wine lovers will be drawn to the south shore of the Douro, where famous cellars invite you to taste their wares. Water taxis will take you from Porto’s historic old town to Vila Nova de Gaia, a hub of the port wine industry. The view from the gigantic iron Dom Luis I Bridge is also unforgettable, and will make your heart soar. End your cruise by discovering Spain’s green side. Explore modern GIJON and take an excursion to Oviedo* to get to know Asturias. The capital of this autonomous principality has maintained its wonderful old town to this day. With a medieval cathedral and Romanesque churches, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Spend hours experiencing different aspects of the city before heading home after one final overnight stay on board in BILBAO.

    * The shore activities are not included in the cruise price and are in the planning stage. Subject to change.

    Experience the world's best golf courses with Hapag-Lloyd Cruises.

    On our exclusive Golf & Cruise voyages, we have reserved the best golf courses for you in advance and put together attractive basic packages.

    Basic package: Four courses
    € 1,550 per person

    Along the Atlantic Ocean, from the Canary Islands to the north-west tip of Africa, to the Iberian Peninsula. A golfing and cultural experience on four very different courses. Each one a highlight in itself!

    Wed 18.05.2022 Arrecife – Lanzarote Golf Resort
    The fairways of this 18-hole course blend seamlessly into the island’s natural surroundings – even though the lush green of the course contrasts significantly with the local landscape. The wide, open fairways ensure an ideal golfing experience for all handicaps.

    Fri 20.05.2022 Casablanca – Mazagan Golf
    Golfing legend Gary Player has created a links course here that’s great fun to play. Situated right next to the Mediterranean, the very wide fairways offer stunning views almost constantly. The symbiosis of the course’s green fairways and the blue ocean turn every tee, almost every swing, into a unique golfing experience.

    Mon 23.05.2022 Lisbon – Penha Longa Golf Club
    The venue for the Portugal Open, this has been one of Europe’s top courses for years. This typical resort course presents a tough yet fair challenge. The fairways may have their own particular features, incorporating the natural landscape as they do, but the course always offers plenty of opportunities to get the ball to its destination. 

    Thu 26.05.2022 Gijon – Real Club de Castiello
    Between mature trees and highly modulated topography, you will find some very playable fairways. One of the main reasons they are so playable is the straightforward route to the green. Only the bunkers strategically placed to protect the course finale might stand in the way of your success.


    • In order to guarantee a comfortable flow of play for all golfers, we have determined a basic speed, which is sufficient for a playing time of 4.5 to 5 hours on foot (covering 18 holes with a trolley).
    • Due to tournaments, renovations, etc. at the various golf clubs, our Golf & Cruise programme is subject to change at short notice.
    • Golf & Cruise voyages allow all players with a handicap of 36 or less to play on courses all over the world. 
    • Additional courses can only be booked in conjunction with the basic package.
    • The reservation of e-carts cannot always be guaranteed due to local availability and weather conditions. You may, therefore, have to play and walk just with trolleys - possibly even on hilly courses. Please consider this when planning/booking your Golf & Cruise package. 
    • Halfway refreshments are always ordered via the respective golf club; we have no influence on the quality of the snacks. We kindly ask for your understanding.
    • When booking a Golf & Cruise package and flights through Hapag-Lloyd, we will register your golf equipment directly with the airlines – when possible and required. The current baggage regulations of the relevant airline apply. In your travel documents, which you will receive about four weeks prior to departure, you will find relevant information about this. Excess baggage fees for golf equipment are normally to be paid at check-in.
    • Minimum number of participants for basic packages: 12 persons.
    • Minimum number of participants for additional courses: 10 persons.
    • If the minimum number of participants is not reached, cancellation will occur no later than eight weeks prior to cruise departure.
    • Rental clubs for right-handed and left-handed players are available on board, subject to a surcharge.
