Route: Hamburg, Harlingen, Ouistreham (Caen), Saint Malo, Douarnenez, Morbihan, Ile d’Aix, Bordeaux, San Sebastian, Gijón, Ferrol, Porto, Lisbon
Sail the Atlantic coast from Hamburg to Lisbon, visit UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and discover the rich history and culture of Brittany, the Basque Country, and Galicia. On this 14-day adventure, you’ll discover spectacular scenery, fascinating maritime history, rich culture, and the gastronomical delights of coastal gems in Germany, the Netherlands, France, Spain and Portugal.
From the moment we set sail from Hamburg – sometimes called Germany’s ‘Venice of the North’ – you’ll be on a deep-dive journey into European history. In the port of Harlingen, you’ll discover the more rugged, Dutch charm of Friesland, with pretty canals set in nature. From there we’ll sail to Normandy, and walk on a beach where the Allied troops landed on D-Day. We’ll also visit Caen, the medieval town where William the Conqueror left his indelible mark.
In Brittany, you’ll stroll through the incredible walled city of Saint-Malo, built by the ancient Gauls but for centuries a home for pirates. We will then continue along Brittany’s wild coastal landscapes to explore picturesque fishing villages, charming medieval towns and the rich maritime history of the Breton people. Next in the horizon will be Ile d’Aix and grand Bordeaux, City of Wine.
Leaving behind the waters of the Bay of Biscay, you will delight in the gastronomy of San Sebastian, discover Old Gijón, and see the unique port city of Ferrol. In Galicia, where many paths lead towards Santiago de Compostela, you’ll visit historical landmarks from the time of the Romans to the Crusades. From Spain, we sail south to beautiful Porto and explore its UNESCO-listed historic centre. Our cruise of discovery comes to an end in culture-saturated Lisbon, the jewel in Portugal’s crown.
