What to see on a MSC Canary Islands Cruise

The Canary Islands are an autonomous community of Spain located in the Atlantic Ocean, off the north western coast of Africa. Altogether this archipelago consists of seven main islands: Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, Fuerteventura, La Palma, La Gomera, and El Hierro, as well as several smaller islands and islets.

The Canary Islands are renowned for their stunning natural beauty, diverse landscapes, and year-round mild climate, making them a popular tourist destination. Here are some highlights of the Canary Islands:

Volcanic Landscapes

The Canary Islands were formed by volcanic activity, resulting in unique landscapes characterized by dramatic cliffs, rugged mountains, and volcanic craters. Visitors can explore volcanic national parks, such as Teide National Park on Tenerife, home to Mount Teide, Spain’s highest peak.
