Glorious Gardens of the Canary Islands

Glorious Gardens of the Canary Islands

Summary

This volcanic archipelago off the coast of north-western Africa is home to black sand

beaches, lunar landscapes, lush forests and hidden gardens filled with indigenous plants,

some of which are on the verge of extinction. During this eight-day voyage we not only have

the opportunity to enjoy some much-needed winter sun, we also explore six of the eight

main islands. Our adventures will include visits to Mount Teide National Park, the largest

park in the Canary Islands, the garden of Sitio Litre in Tenerife, the National Park of Caldera

de Taburiente and the Botanical Garden of La Palma. While on the island of Gran Canaria,

we’ll explore the lovely garden of La Marquesa de Arucas and on Lanzarote we’ll visit the

Cactus Garden, a former quarry that has been transformed by extensive plantations of

prickly pear cacti, and the Green Heart of Haria, an oasis for wildlife and endemic plants.
