4 Night Cruise sailing return from Las Palmas onboard Sea Cloud Spirit.
The SEA CLOUD SPIRIT: a windjammer that sets new standards. To build a fully rigged three-master in the 21st century might seem a little unusual. For SEA CLOUD CRUISES, this is a commitment to our true passion for sailing.
Generous, modern, exclusive.
The new SEA CLOUD SPIRIT combines a romantic windjammer atmosphere and the most modern comforts. With her clear, classic outline, she follows the role model of her two elegant windjammer sisters. New in this concept are the generous number of cabins with balconies, the extensive sun deck with sunbeds, a gym with panoramic views and the exclusive spa and wellness area. In addition to the "Fine Dining" evening menu in the restaurant, we now also offer you the option to dine on the Lido Deck at a time of your preference and enjoy our flexible bistro menu selection.
Also technically, the SEA CLOUD SPIRIT is state-of-the-art: Besides a sail area of 4,100 m2/ 44,100 sq ft, she is equipped with two economic diesel-electric drives that reliably keep her on course even during calms. Clearly, SEA CLOUD CRUISES stands for environmentally friendly eco-tourism at the highest level.
Highlights of this cruise:
Las Palmas/Gran Canaria
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.
San Sebastián/La Gomera
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.
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.
