Santa Cruz/Tenerife/Spain, departure 20.00 hrs
Lanzarote, from 10.00 to 20.00 hrs
Cruise on board the HANSEATIC inspiration to chase the sun as you leave the familiar behind you. Welcome to the Canary Islands: European soil shaped by volcanoes and pampered by the sun. The relaxed and fun-loving charm of the little streets is typical of Lanzarote. Trace the footsteps of César Manrique* and dive into the island’s colours. The painter was inspired by the vibrant contrasts of his home. The landscape of Lanzarote is primarily shaped by the famous volcanoes. Come with us to Timanfaya National Park* and take in the scene of lava flows, volcanoes and craters.
Gran Canaria, arrival 8.00 hrs
Gran Canaria, the third-largest of the Canary Islands, boasts scenic diversity in a relatively small space. Desert-like areas alternate with rugged rock formations that rise up to 2,000 metres into the sky. The western coast is steep while the northern coast is gentle and lush with vegetation. It is therefore no wonder that Gran Canaria is also known as a “miniature continent”. Set against the backdrop of two bays with idyllic beaches, Las Palmas, the island’s capital, welcomes you with a host of enchanting cafes. Feel the impressive power of nature on a hike to the Bandama crater*, which is 200 m (656 ft) deep. On a trip to the south of the island, you can see for yourself why this place is also called the Venice of the South in idyllic Puerto de Mogan. The ship will stay overnight so that you have enough time to explore Gran Canaria on your own at a relaxed pace.
Gran Canaria, departure 22.00 hrs
Relaxation at sea
El Hierro, from 8.00 to 20.00 hrs
What will satisfy your curiosity first on the volcanic island of El Hierro, which is over a million years old? Enjoy a natural history tour in the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve*, or get to know the island as a hiking paradise*. Take in the volcanic landscapes, rock formations and eucalyptus and pine forests. Your explorer’s heart will be filled with joy – very fittingly given that the biogeographical name for the region is Macaronesia, meaning islands of happiness.
La Gomera, from 8.00 to 21.00 hrs
A subtropical climate and millions of years of erosion have given La Gomera its character. An island tour* will take you up close to the timeless natural beauty. Imagine you’re in a Himalayan mountain village in the valley of Hermigua and be awed by the Garajonay National Park, which is said to have an ancient witches’ meeting place at its centre. For a mystical alternative, enjoy a hike through the El Cedro rainforest*. The laurel trees are often wreathed in mist, and a magical aura fills the air. A stroll through the small city of San Sebastian de la Gomera will prove equally atmospheric. Can it really be autumn? In these exotic climes, you’ll feel like it is summer in the – hopefully – many hours of sunshine.
La Palma, from 8.00 to 23.00 hrs
The pleasant climate and idyllic natural surroundings make the Canary Islands a popular destination, particularly in autumn. With volcanoes, forests and beaches, La Palma is the pearl of the archipelago. The capital, Santa Cruz, has great cultural and historic value and boasts many 16th- and 17th-century buildings. Take the opportunity to explore the old town at your own pace and stroll along the Avenida Maritima with its typical wooden balconies. Nature lovers can take a ride to the Caldera de Taburiente National Park* along breathtaking escarpments to one of the world’s largest calderas. A volcano hike* shows how lava tracks from past eruptions not only shaped the landscape, but also provide fertile ground for winegrowing.
