    Day 6

    Funchal

    The picturesque whitewashed capital of this mountainous Portuguese island, 350 miles off the coast of Africa, has a timeless charm, delightfully enhanced by a benign climate that fills this ‘floating garden' with the year round colours and perfumes of subtropical flowers and fruit. Much painted by Sir Winston Churchill, Madeira has been offering the British visitor a warm welcome for three centuries, its famous wine the perfect aid to total relaxation!

    Day 7

    Santa Cruz de Tenerife

    The lively, cosmopolitan capital of the largest of the Canaries, Santa Cruz has much of architectural and historical interest to offer. Easily reached are the elegant beach resort of Puerto de la Cruz, the lively leisure complex of Playa de las Americas, the banana and pineapple plantations of the beautiful Orotava Valley, and the stunning volcanic scenery and views of El Teide National Park, dominated by the 12,000ft snow-tipped peak of Spain's highest mountain. From Santa Cruz we drive inland to La Laguna, the islands second city as well as the cultural and religious capital. Driving through pine forests affords the occasional glimpse of snow capped Mount Teide before arriving at the 'Pyramids of Guimar'. Since 1981, famous anthropologist Thor Heyerdahl has been investigating the step pyramids in Guimar similar to those found in Mexico, Peru and ancient Mesopotamia. The park provides an interesting insight into the theories surrounding their origin.

    Day 8

    Las Palmas, Gran Canaria

    The thriving capital of Gran Canaria, third largest island of the Canaries, Las Palmas is within easy reach of the famous Playa del Ingles beach and the magnificent palm-fringed and Sahara-like dunes of Maspalomas. In quieter corners of the island attractive old towns like Teror and Arucas (the latter the island's ‘banana capital') invite exploration, while inland Gran Canaria's fretted volcanic landscapes of gorges, craters and mountains rising to 6,500ft offer memorable sightseeing.

    Day 9

    Arrecife, Lanzarote

    Arrecife is the gateway to the island of Lanzarote, whose desolate yet dramatic lunar-like landscapes and coal-black sand beaches were shaped by 18th century volcanic eruptions. Ride by camel to the still hissing rocks of the great ‘Fire Mountains' in Timanfaya National Park – then cool down with a glass or two of wine and delicious paella in a local seafront restaurant!

    Day 10

    At Sea

    Day 11

    Lisbon, Portugal

    It was from historic Lisbon, built on seven low hills beside the wide Tagus estuary, that some of Europe's greatest explorers set sail in pursuit of the riches that built Portugal's former global empire in the New World, Africa and the Indies. Memories of that glorious past linger amid the grand avenues and elegant squares of the attractive capital's 18th century lower town - a vivid contrast with the colourful honeycomb of cobbled streets in the old Moorish Alfama quarter and the bohemian mood of the hilly Bairro Alto.

    Day 12

    Vigo, Spain

    It is hard to believe that in 1702, amid the calm setting of Vigo's fjord-like harbour, an English and Dutch force once fought and defeated the French and Spanish fleets anchored here. A major port city of Galicia, renowned for its seafood, Vigo has an appealing old town with a labyrinth of steep and winding narrow streets and shaded squares. Nearby is Santiago de Compostela, Christendom's third most holy pilgrimage shrine, in whose vast Gothic cathedral lays the body of St James.
