There’s nothing more exciting that an intercontinental journey! And with this specific itinerary, you’ll get to touch land on 3 different continents. While still in South America, you must check out the views from the Lacerda Elevator during your visit of Salvador De Bahia. On your way to Europe, we’ll make a day stop in Africa where you’ll be amazed to find the rolling sand dunes of the Sahara… in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean in Cape Verde. Your first stop on European land will be on the exotic Canary Islands. Here, you can visit the Pyramids of Guimar in Tenerife. These lava stone structures are said to have been a stopping point for voyagers between ancient Egypt and the Mayan Civilization. Then in Cartagena, Spain let your taste buds wander with a “mojarra” – a deliciously crispy fried fish with coconut rice, usually served with golden fried plantains and a simple salad.

Christ the Redeemer, one of the modern Seven Wonders of the World, stands atop the Corcovado peak. Survey the city from a platform below the 125-foot statue or hop on a cable car to the top of Sugarloaf Mountain and get a different perspective of Rio and the Christ. Feel a rush to your senses from the awesome activity on world-famous beaches Ipanema and Copacabana. If the quiet side of Rio is what you seek, a visit to the lush botanical garden – home to some 8,000 species – will delight you.
Located at the eastern tip of the island of Tenerife, the largest of the Canary Islands, Santa Cruz is a natural cruise destination as over half of its perimeter is shoreline. The beaches are lovely at that, from the yellow sands of Las Teresitas to the black sands of the quieter, clothing-optional Las Gaviotas. There’s also plenty to do and see inland, especially if you’re here during the spectacular Carnival.
Funchal has been an Atlantic stop-off since the days of the Portuguese navigators, who called here for water before the long voyage west. Today, you’re more likely to be topping up with a glass of Madeira wine before setting off to explore the beautiful Botanical Gardens, the sheer sea cliffs and the mountainous interior with its lush valleys and terraced hillsides.
The strategic position to the Mediterranean Sea has always made Malaga an attractive zone for foreign invasions. From Malaga, a trip to Granada showcases an intriguing blend of Arab and European cultures. Be sure to visit The Alhambra, one of the finest examples of Moorish art in Spain.
Go back to the swashbuckling era at the mighty Fort Bocachica or to La Popa Monastery for a spectacular view. Cartagena was once a favored destination of pirates and adventures, now is now a bustling seaport.
Life in the Catalan capital is as fast and fun as anywhere in Europe. Take a stroll down Las Ramblas, where the street theatre is just as crazy as the fantastical Art Nouveau architecture of the city’s most famous son, Gaudi. The Gothic Quarter with its narrow streets and vast cathedral is big on atmosphere and the neighbourhood tapas bars are just the place to refill.
