Sun-Filled Glades and Sweet Madeira


Malaga to Malaga
November 5-19, 2015

In 1951, Winston Churchill wanted to retreat somewhere ‘warm, bathable, comfortable and flowery’ where he could paint and work on his war memoirs. Wisely, he chose Madeira. During your visit you will see Camara de Lobos, one of the villages that inspired Churchill to paint, and also have enough free time to explore the famous Botanical Gardens.

Sail from the historical Spanish mainland port of Cadiz, and afterwards head to the Canary Islands, where you will travel to the Caldera de Taburiente National park and journey deep inland to Fuerteventura – a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve – with its historic churches and rugged landscapes.

Before reaching Morocco and a chance to experience Casablanca, Rabat, Tangier and Marrakesh, plus the exciting city of Taroudant, there is time to call at the port of El Marsa. From here you will venture into the sand dunes of the Western Sahara desert and experience one of the great wildernesses of the world.
