10 Night Cruise sailing from Palma to Santa Cruz aboard Golden Horizon.

10 Night Cruise sailing from Palma to Santa Cruz aboard Golden Horizon.

The World’s largest square-rigged sailing vessel, Golden Horizon. A near replica of the 1913-built ocean vessel, France II, she retains the charm, adventure and romance of an historic ship.

Golden Horizon attracts like-minded adventure seekers for a sailing experience which allows guests to connect with the elements of the natural world.

The ambience on board is relaxed, casual, elegant and without unnecessary formality. We have created an environment which will encourage our guests to return to time and time again, and to share their stories and experiences.

With grace and beauty, the Golden Horizon is a sailing ship first and foremost, sailing to share adventures with our friends, our guests.

All 140 cabins are outside facing, so guests can enjoy the breath-taking views. Cabins evoke the luxury and facilities expected of a boutique cruise ship, whilst retaining charm, adventure and romance of a truly historic sailing vessel.

Our ship uses the wind and currents and follows the sun to allow adventure seekers to travel the world in a unique way. Our philosophy is to be powered by nature whenever possible and we intend to sail, without using propulsion, for around 70% of each season.

Highlights of this cruise:

Departing Mallorca, and the charming honey-stone streets of Palma, we’ll sail for the Spanish mainland. Cartagena is best admired from the battlements of its castle and time is well spent roaming Roman ruins, museums and the astounding Old Cathedral of Cartagena. Málaga has been rejuvenated in past decades and the city now has tapas and arts scenes to rival any in Spain – the latter including a multicoloured Pompidou outpost and an excellent museum devoted to local boy, Pablo Picasso. Sea-kayaking trips into caves are available nearby if you’d prefer some rural exploration.

British-owned Gibraltar, aka ‘The Rock’, has a familiar vibe, with red pillar boxes, fish-and-chip shops and Palladian architecture. You’ll also have the chance to explore extensive war tunnels, botanic gardens and a macaque-patrolled nature reserve. We’ll then move on to the Canary Islands, likely to still be sun-soaked this deep into autumn. From the main city Las Palmas, it’s easy to explore Gran Canaria’s lush north – pausing in pastel-shade towns and banana plantations before wowing at the Bandama Caldera, a magnificent volcanic crater. Our final stop is Tenerife’s handsome capital Santa Cruz. Most visitors hasten through here, bound for beaches – yet the excellent shopping, street art and parks merit closer inspection.
