Escape to islands in the sun
Four contrasting Atlantic islands beckon on this wonderful autumn escape south to warmer climes. This delightful voyage has time at sea to relax, unwind and enjoy the wide choice of facilities on board Magellan. And yet it promises a host of exciting experiences every time you step ashore. Beautiful Madeira and the ever-popular Canary Islands of Lanzarote, Tenerife and Gran Canaria will, together with Amsterdam, Gibraltar and Lisbon, make this a voyage to remember.
With its tree-lined canals, gabled houses and world famous museums, Amsterdam is a delightful first call. Relaxing days at sea follow with the opportunity to enjoy the on board facilities, daytime activities and evening entertainment as Magellan heads south. Step ashore in Gibraltar to discover its military heritage, or to take the cable car to the top of the Rock for spectacular views. Your first call in the Canary Islands is Las Palmas, the capital of Gran Canaria, where you may opt to discover some of the island’s quieter corners and attractive old towns. Sail across to the island of Lanzarote and the bustling city of Arrecife to stroll along the magnificent seafront promenade.
Visit the slopes of Fire Mountain and discover an island of extraordinary lunar landscapes before sailing to Tenerife. Dominated by Mount Teide, Tenerife is renowned for its beach resorts and Santa Cruz offers tempting shops and beautiful Loro Parque. Funchal on ‘the garden isle’ of Madeira nestles in a natural amphitheatre surrounded by sheltering slopes. Explore the lively waterfront and charming old town of narrow cobbled streets. Your last call is the Portuguese capital of Lisbon. Marvel at the city’s magnificent buildings or take a tram ride through the old Alfama district.
