Itinerary

Day 1 : Arrecife (Lanzarote)
Location:

Arrecife


Accommodation Name:

MV La Belle des océans


Passengers are welcome to board our ship.

After comfortably settling into your cabins, we’ll introduce our crew at a welcome cocktail. Tonight we’ll enjoy dinner and an evening of activities on board.

Our ship will remain in port overnight.

Day 2 : Arrecife
Location:

Arrecife


Accommodation Name:

MV La Belle des océans


Lanzarote seems from another world. The island is covered with dark, volcanic rock caressed by striking turquoise waters and dotted with oases of greenery. The calm and silence on the island invite you to unplug from the connected world and recharge your batteries with sunlight.

This morning, join us for an optional excursion to Timanfaya National Park. Lanzarote is truly a unique place. Seventy-five percent of the island’s surface is covered with craters and lava flows dating back to massive volcanic eruptions 270 years ago. We’ll travel to the Fire Mountains in Timanfaya National Park to experience this singular beauty. We’ll also take part in geothermic demonstrations at the Islote de Hilario. The next stop will be the Salinas de Janubio, salt flats created in a natural lagoon. Since it rarely rains on the islands, farmers have developed ingenious methods for growing vegetables in lava fields using the tiny volcanic granules as mulch. The stone and rock vineyards in Geria contain thousands of semicircles patiently built by winegrowers over the years. Each semicircle protects one grapevine planted in the middle. The grapes grow exceptionally well within these ashen ditches, and the lava pebbles allow the dew to filter down to the roots. The results are a crisp, golden wine known as Malvasia. Of course, we’ll enjoy a tasting of wine and cheese at one of the oldest bodegas on the island. The arid, volcanic lands on the island help produce the unique tastes, colors, and nuances found in both the wines and the delicious goat cheeses.

This afternoon, join us for an optional excursion to learn about César Manrique, one of the most important artists in the Canary Islands. He was a painter, architect, builder, and sculptor. He was also an ecologist and activist for sustainable development in the local construction industry. Jameos del Agua is the art, culture, and tourism center where his talents can be experienced firsthand. Afterwards, we’ll head to the Mirador del Rio to take in the outstanding views of the moon-like landscape. You’ll be able to catch a glimpse of another volcanic island, La Graciosa, from the overlook as well. The combination of the sky, the water, and the steep cliff is an unbelievable experience. Lastly, we'll visit the César Manrique House Museum, an incarnation of his talents. The lower floor is built around five natural volcanic bubbles, and his former studio has been converted into an exhibition for his paintings.

When LA BELLE DES OCEANS casts off for its cruise through the Canary Islands, our crew will welcome you on the Sun Deck for a cocktail as the sun sets across the horizon.

Enjoy an evening of entertainment.

Our ship will cruise to Fuerteventura overnight.

Day 3 : Rosario (Fuerteventura)
Location:

Puerto Del Rosario


Accommodation Name:

MV La Belle des océans


Fuerteventura was the first of the Canary Islands to rise from the Atlantic waters millions of years ago. Since thousands of years passed between volcanic eruptions, nature freely carved the land into a lunar- like panorama.

Join us for an optional excursion called "The Secrets of Fuerteventura." We'll begin towards the northern part of the island at the Finca Torres, where we'll discover how local goat cheese is made. The internationally renowned goat cheeses produced in Fuerteventura have been awarded the highest "Golden Cheese Award" for five consecutive years. At the end of our tour, we'll enjoy a tasting of this famous delicacy. We'll then continue on to the small village of Tiscamanita to visit a cosmetics producer who uses aloe vera, one of the most prominent crops on the island. You'll learn everything you'll need to know about this surprising plant. Lastly, we'll experience Betancuria, the island's first colony and former capital. French explorer Jean de Béthencourt founded Betancuria at the beginning of the 15th century. He chose the area within the valley to be protected from pirate attacks. Despite his strategy, pirates razed the village in 1593.

We'll spend the afternoon cruising to Gran Canaria. Lecture.

Day 4 : Las Palmas (Grande Canarie)
Location:

Las Palmas De Gran Canaria


Accommodation Name:

MV La Belle des océans


The shell-shaped island of Gran Canaria is a study in contrasts: Fertile soil to the north versus vast desert lands to the south, while the steep cliffs on the northwest coasts juxtapose the long sandy beaches on the southern side. Both the city of Las Palmas and the sun-drenched beaches in the south beat to the sound of the waves that hit the shores.

We set out on an optional excursion to Las Palmas and the Bandama Caldera. We'll begin in old-time Vegueta and the Casa de Colon, a colonial-style mansion with exhibits about the history of the Canary Islands and their link with the New World. We'll continue on to the Bandama Caldera, a volcanic crater that reaches 1,867 feet above sea level (569 m).

In the afternoon, join us for an optional excursion to Teror and the Garden of La Marquesa de Arucas. Teror is a place of pilgrimage for all the island's inhabitants as it houses the statue of the patron saint of the island in its basilica, the Virgen del Pino. Afterwards, we'll head to Arucas, one of the most beautiful cities in Gran Canaria. We'll see the outside of the imposing, black cathedral and visit the lovely Garden of La Marquesa de Arucas, home to 400 species of tropical and subtropical plants.

Our ship will cruise to La Gomera. Join us for an evening of dancing in the lounge.

Our ship will cruise through the night.

Day 5 : San Sebastian (La Gomera)
Location:

San Sebastián De La Gomera


Accommodation Name:

MV La Belle des océans


La Gomera is known for its natural and human-made sites. The inhabitants, subject to the complex terrain and difficult conditions on the island, have made remarkable adaptations. They take advantage of the natural resources available while remaining highly respectful of their environment.

We'll spend the morning cruising. Take advantage of a quiet moment on LA BELLE DES OCEANS to catch some rays poolside or enjoy a treatment in our wellness salon. More active passengers can keep in shape in the fitness center, and history buffs can attend the lecture in the lounge.

Join us for an optional excursion to the island of La Gomera this afternoon. We'll visit Garajonay National Park, which is blanketed with thick, bay-tree forests. This UNESCO World Heritage Site offers a striking contrast to the rest of the archipelago. The park sits under an almost constant haze of fog from the trade winds and the surrounding waters, which gives it an eerie atmosphere. We'll pass through the quaint villages of Hermigua, Las Rosas, and Agulo—whose sweet charm led to the nickname "The Bonbon of La Gomera." We'll stop for a typical island tea time and listen to a demonstration of Silbo Gomero, the whistled language used by the islanders. We'll enter Garajonay National Park to see the Roque Agando rock formation, the symbol of the island, jutting far above the greenery of the forests.

Our ship will cruise to La Palma.

Join us for dinner and an evening of entertainment.

Day 6 : Santa Cruz De La Palma (La Palma)
Location:

Santa Cruz De La Palma


Accommodation Name:

MV La Belle des océans


La Palma, rich with vegetation and incredible landscapes, is known as the "Beautiful Island." You'll discover this tiny corner of paradise through its stunning views, well-preserved beaches, and charming towns.

We'll spend the morning cruising. Lecture.

In the afternoon, feel free to join us for an optional excursion to the heart of the island. We'll hit the road to the Caldera de Taburiente for some spectacular views. First, we'll visit the Santuario de Nuestra Señora de Las Nieves, a lovely whitewashed sanctuary housing the venerated Virgin of the Snows. Our tour will then take us along mountain roads and through extraordinary scenery to the Caldera de Taburiente. We'll stop at a traditional 17th-century farm—surrounded by gorgeous gardens and breathtaking views—for a refreshing snack. On the way back, a brief stop at the Mirador de la Concepcion overlook will give you an impressive view of the coast and northern part of the island.

Our ship will cruise to Tenerife overnight. In celebration of our last cruise through the Canary Islands, join our crew on the Sun Deck for a cocktail together.

Tonight is our festive gala evening.

Day 7 : Santa Cruz De Tenerife (Tenerife)
Location:

Santa Cruz De Tenerife


Accommodation Name:

MV La Belle des océans


Mount Teide dominates the largest island in the Canaries. With its summit at 12,198 ft. (3,718 m), the volcano is the highest point in Spain. Tenerife is the main point of entry to the archipelago and a palette of tones and scenery.

This morning, join us for an optional excursion to Teide National Park. The national park system throughout the Canary Islands protects the important ecosystems found within. Teide National Park is an excellent example of the vegetation in Tenerife at the high mountain level. It sits at an altitude between 5,413 ft. and 12,198 ft (1,650 and 3,718 m) and gives a great opportunity to visit a dormant volcano and its surroundings. The park was created in 1954 to preserve and study the volcanic structures and forms represented in the almost 74 square miles it covers (189 km2). You’ll experience an astonishing view from the top of the crater, and you will be able to stroll around a bit to experience it all from different angles. We’ll stop several times on the way down, as well, to admire the landscape and scenery.

This afternoon, we'll set off on an optional visit to Puerto de la Cruz. Discover this seaside resort and its picturesque old town as you meander along the waterfront and down charming streets lined with gardens, beautiful homes, and quaint churches. We’ll stop at the Mirador de Humbolt, a lookout point with sweeping views of the Orotava Valley and its banana plantations. We will then visit the Orchid Garden Sitio Litre, home to the most extensive collection of orchids on the island.

For our last evening together, join us in the lounge for an evening of traditional entertainment to wind down your vacation to the unforgettable Canary Islands. Beautifully costumed dancers and musicians will present a variety of dances and music found among the islands.

  • How does Today Voyages work?

    We are an Online Travel Agency, specialized in Group Vacations and Private Vacations.

Today Voyages offers a selection of tours that are designed, managed and operated by our network of trusted Tour Operators and DMCs. Our database is connected with our partners so that when you make a booking with us this will immediately be received and processed by the Tour Operator.

  • Where should I buy the flights to reach my destination?

    Today Voyages does not sell flights directly. None of our tours come with flights included. Why? Because we prefer to give full flexibility to our valued customers to select the airlines and the booking platform they prefer. As soon as your flight is booked and confirmed, we invite you to update your flight plan within your Today Voyages booking confirmation page by entering your flight number, departure and arrival times, as well as your Passport information (if needed). None of these fields are mandatory but we highly encourage you to provide as much information as possible. This will allow us to provide you with the excellent service you are looking for.

  • What is an additional excursion or tour optional?

    Certain tours might show a selection of additional excursions/optional activities that you may want to add to our standard itinerary. These services are priced separately and can be added to the cart before completing the booking. We believe these optional services to contribute to making your vacation unforgettable; however, you are in no way obliged to purchase them. All our tours are awesome with our without optional services!

  • What is the difference between Group Vacations and Private Vacations?

    If you purchase one of our Group vacation packages, you will be escorted by a professional tour guide and will be traveling with other like-minded travelers you may not know. The group size depends on the tour you select. If you purchase one of our Private vacation packages, you will be traveling only within your group of friends. You may or may not be escorted by a professional tour guide; this depends on the type of private tour you are interested in.

  • When and how will I receive the travel documents (vouchers)?

    If you book one of our Group or Private tours, you will receive your travel documents via email approximately 20 days prior to travel date. If you reserve one of our Vacation Rentals, you will hear back from the property manager via email a few days prior to checking-in. We recommend checking your emails on a regular basis as this is our most reliable method of communication. If you have questions or need additional support, you can always chat with us or email us directly.

  • What happens if a Group tour does not get confirmed?

    It is very simple... you will be offered an alternative departure date or be refunded the full amount you pre-paid. No questions asked!

  • What happens after I book?

    The majority of our tours are confirmed at the time of booking. This means that, after submitting the payment online, you will receive an order confirmation email; make sure to save this email and to note down your confirmation number for any future communication with us. Some tours may be sold on a 'on request' basis. This means that for these tours we reserve the right to check the availability of your spot(s) with the Tour Operator before confirming the tour to you. As soon as you submit the payment online for a 'on request' tour you will receive an email notification that confirms your order request. Within 72 hours, you will receive either a confirmation email or a denial email. Do not worry... we will do everything we can to confirm your tour!

Unforgettable tour in the US National Parks

04-May-2022

I booked a guided tour in the National Parks through Today Voyages and couldn't have been happier! Our guide was great, he knew the destination very well and gave us great advice for the best hikes and view points. The itinerary was well-packed and we were amazed at the scenery of the South West. We would definitely consider booking another tour next year.

Helengeli island is stunning

12-Apr-2023

Wow, Helengeli island is stunning. The resort is clean, the staff are so attentive, the grounds are pristine, and the food is 5*. Spending a week at this resort was simply paradise, white sand, crystal blue ocean, what more could you want! As I wasn't able to tailor-make my holiday, the Today Voyages team helped me find the tour that best matched my expectations, and they definitely didn't disappoint!!!

Top Experience!

03-Feb-2023

The Las Vegas and the National Parks Hiking Tour is a deal not to be missed. What a phenomenal trip! We were 14 people in our minibus and it was great to connect to all of them. So many stories to share. The cool thing about this tour is that it attracts hikers of all kinds: laid back hikers as well as more experienced ones could find beauty in every single destination this tour took us to. I will for sure join another tour soon. Thank you guys, also, for the assistance provided throughout the trip. Loved it!

Unforgettable 8-day trip to Kenya

01-Mar-2023

I just came back from an unforgettable 8-day trip to Kenya. A mix of relaxation and adventure. I had never traveled with a group before and, honestly, I was a little skeptical at the beginning. Pauline at Today Voyages convinced me that this was the right tour and the right destination for me. And the truth is... she was right. Tsavo and Watamu are such awesome destinations, our guide was impeccable and it was a small group: a family of 4, a young couple, and us. We became friends. Highly recommended!
