The enchanting towns and volcanic sites of two captivating Cape Verde islands combine with the natural wonders of Tenerife, and Madeira’s beautifully floral landscapes, to present a plethora of diverse sights and experiences. What’s more, you’ll also be part of the ‘Four Fred.’s in Funchal’ event, joining guests and crews from Fred. Olsen’s entire fleet of ocean-going ships for an unforgettable day of fun and festivity in the Madeiran capital.
The historic Spanish city of La Coruña and Lisbon, Portugal’s vibrant capital city, make for rewarding stops as you sail south for your island-hopping adventure. La Coruña boasts attractions such as the ancient Tower of Hercules and Monte de San Pedro Park. It’s also your gateway to the awe-inspiring Santiago de Compostela cathedral. Lisbon is packed with highlights too; architectural treasures including Belém Tower and the Jerónimos Monastery harbour a rich maritime heritage. Boudicca will then proceed on to Madeira for the very special ‘Four Fred.’s in Funchal’ event. After docking alongside Balmoral, Black Watch and Braemar, you’ll can experience a memorable day of celebration, shared with the crews and fellow guests from all four ocean-going ships in the fleet. Enjoy live entertainment; tuck in to specially prepared menus; and even visit all three other ships during this simply unforgettable occasion. Away from the festivities, there are chances to uncover Madeira’s fragrant and flourishing gardens and unique levada walking trails.
In Cape Verde, two distinctive destinations await. On the volcanic island of São Vicente you’ll never be too far from an authentic Cape Verdean experience; in Mindelo you’ll find colonial architecture, busy markets and friendly bars serving grogue, the national drink. In Praia, on Santiago Island, there’s an array of highlights to unearth, including the lively Municipal Market and the fascinating Archaeology Museum. You could even catch a performance of traditional Funana dance. Alternatively, opt for a tour to UNESCO-listed Cidade Velha, the first city built by Europeans in West Africa. Then in the Canaries, there’s Tenerife. Here you can visit the mysterious Pyramids of Güímar, marvel at magnificent Mount Teide – Spain’s highest peak – via cable car or simply relax and enjoy the sunshine at Playa de Las Americas. Santa Cruz is your gateway to these highlights and more. Vigo rounds off your holiday, complete with a charming Old Quarter and picturesque bay to explore in the spring sunshine.
