Discover the joys of southern Spain and Portugal - plus a splash of North Africa - on this eight-day Adventure Cruising tour. Explore the historic sites of three countries linked by a shared Moorish history, from the townhouses of Ronda to the ancient fortifications of the Castle of Silves. In between daily excursions enjoy free time to stretch out on the deck of your comfortable small ship or indulge in the cafe cultures of iconic cities. This mix of cultural activities and sun-soaked leisure makes this cruise is perfect for travellers who want to experience the Iberian lifestyle with a dash of Morocco.
Day 1: Malaga
Arrive in Malaga and board the ship in the late afternoon. Attend a welcome meeting and safety briefing with the group to go over the finer details of your upcoming journey. Sit down to dinner with your fellow travellers in the evening. You'll then sail overnight for Motril.
Day 2: Motril
After your overnight voyage from Malaga, in the morning, make an excursion out to Nerja caves and Balcon de Europa. There are two different transfer times offered from Nerja to Motril, so you can choose to have free time in either place. While Nerja is the smaller town of the two, both are delightful coastal towns. Spend the night at port.
Day 3: Granada
After breakfast on board, a full day tour of Granada takes you to Alhambra, which you explore with a local guide. After an optional group lunch in Granada, a city renowned for its unique cuisine, enjoy a walking tour with your leader. Afterwards, take some free time to you’re your own discoveries around town.

Here you set off on a walking tour with a local guide, followed by some free time to make your own discoveries around town.

Day 6: Huelva
Cool off with a swim in the morning at a beach en route to Huelva. After lunch, disembark in Huelva and take a bus to Moguer. Visit Santa Clara Monastery, then travel on to El Rabida.

The evening is at your leisure in Huelva. Sail overnight to Portimao.
Day 7: Portimao

- Slow the pace down a notch with some bird watching in the Ria Formosa National Park, looking out for flamingos, herons and kingfishers
