November 7th to November 17th 2018
Voyage SC – 1838
|07. Nov 2018||Casablanca (Morocco)||18:00|
Around 90 kilometres (56 miles) from Casablanca is Rabat, one of the country’s four imperial cities. This modern capital with its historic centre was accepted onto the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 2012. Hassan Tower, Rabat’s landmark, dates back to the time when the city was the Sultanate’s capital. Close by, and yet built hundreds of years later, is the Mausoleum of Mohammed V. You can find this regal residence in the elegant French-influenced residential quarter, Ville Nouvelle, with its boulevards and splendid Art Deco colonial buildings.

|09. Nov 2018||Agadir (Morocco)||08:00||23:59|
Taroudant, situated around 80 kilometres (50 miles) east of Agadir, was once the residence of a Berber king, a rich caravan centre and an important trading place. In front of the immense protective mud walls are sprawling olive and orange plantations, and the snow-covered peaks of the High Atlas rise up picturesquely in the background. Through one of the five vast city gates you can reach the lively medina with its numerous souks where you can bargain for Berber handicrafts, leather goods, silver jewellery and the famous argan oil. The city is affectionately known as the “Little Sister of Marrakech”.

|11. Nov 2018||Arrecife/Lanzarote (Spain)||08:00||14:00|
The “Island of Fire”, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, has been continually recreated by volcanic eruptions. A third of Lanzarote is a bizarre lunar landscape of barren, beige-grey lines of hills and “fire mountains”. In sharp contrast to this are the snow white houses, golden beaches and sparse green vegetation. Its quaint wine-growing areas of La Geria have been declared an all-embracing art form by the Museum of Modern Art. The painter, sculptor and architect César Manrique understood art as the link between man and nature and made a vital contribution to the look of his island home through his artistic creations.
|12. Nov 2018||Santa Cruz/Tenerife (Spain)||14:00||22:00|
Even from afar you can see the impressive panorama with Tenerife’s landmark, Mount Teide. Its peak is the highest in Spain at 3,718 metres (12,200 foot) and is often covered in snow. The Las Cañadas National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a high volcanic plateau at the foot of Teide, surrounded by a circle of rock that rises up steeply. Volcanic activity has created strange-looking rock formations here which are adorned with a huge range of colours and seem like a unique synthesis of nature’s art. In contrast to this are the fertile valleys of the north, a barren, almost desert-like south and the island’s vibrant capital city, Santa Cruz.
|13. Nov 2018||Santa Cruz/La Palma (Spain)||13:30|
The combination of small size and great height make the lush green volcanic island of La Palma one of the steepest islands on earth. The white houses in the island’s capital shine out from wooded mountain slopes and the old town centre of Santa Cruz is covered by a preservation order principally because of its Canarian houses with their artistically decorated wooden balconies. The Caldera de Taburiente towers above the north of the island. With a diameter of nine kilometres (5.6 miles) and surrounded by crater walls more than 2,000 metres (6,561 foot) high, it is one of the world’s largest volcanic craters. Behind the caldera is the cloud forest of Los Tilos. The Biosphere Reserve was extended by UNESCO to cover the whole island of La Palma.
|14. Nov 2018||Santa Cruz/La Palma (Spain)||06:00|
|14. Nov 2018||Puerto de la Estaca/El Hierro (Spain)||16:00|
Volcanic activity has created a wildly romantic and varied natural landscape. A black lava desert and strange rock formations with oddly shaped, wind-defying juniper trees in the south, orchards, vineyards, fig and almond groves in the north, lush green meadows and pastures in the high plateaus, and perhaps the most beautiful pine forests in the archipelago. El Hierro, the smallest and newest of the Canary Islands, is almost completely edged with steeply sloping, rugged cliffs and the spray from the surging ocean. UNESCO has designated it a Biosphere Reserve.
|15. Nov 2018||Puerto de la Estaca/El Hierro (Spain)||06:00|
|15. Nov 2018||San Sebastián/La Gomera (Spain)||16:00|
Many people consider La Gomera to be the most wildly romantic island in the Canaries. Rugged gorges, craggy hillsides, fertile valleys and evergreen cloud forests characterise the landscape. The Garajonay National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, embraces the whole central mountain area and is an unusual little spot. Ancient bay trees, heather bushes as high as trees and metre-high ferns form a cloud forest where treemoss hangs from the trees and mosses cling to gnarled branches – a truly mystical natural spectacle which has existed for millions of years.
|16. Nov 2018||San Sebastián/La Gomera (Spain)||14:00|
|17. Nov 2018||Las Palmas/Gran Canaria (Spain)||08:00|
With its black volcano almost 2,000 metres (6,561 foot) high and endless white beaches along the coastline, the island of Gran Canaria displays a huge variety of landscapes. A “continent in miniature” with rugged rock formations, dense pine forests, dry valleys and reservoirs in the interior, lush vegetation in the north, shimmering dune landscapes in the south and weirdly shaped cliffs in the west. Almost half the island has been registered by UNESCO as a Biosphere Reserve. The capital, Las Palmas, is no less colourful, with its port and history stretching back 500 years. The showpiece of this historic old town is the magnificent Santa Ana Cathedral.
