Macaronesia & Bissagos Islands
Grand Expedition Cruise From Dakar To Lisbon (Northbound)

21 Day Dakar to Lisbon

Cultural flavours of Africa
Your grand expedition cruise starts in Dakar, the buzzing capital of Senegal and the most vibrant, affluent and influential city in West Africa. We’ll then visit the Bijagós people, who have retained their ancestral way of life.

Island life
Scan for hundreds of different bird species and rare saltwater hippos, manatees, turtles and more in the Bissagos UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Discover Cape Verde’s culture, fascinating geology and volcanic landscapes when we visit Boa Vista, Santiago, Fogo and Santo Antão.

Sandy beaches and stunning nature
You’ll be awed by the natural beauty of the Canary Islands as you explore El Hierro, La Gomera and La Palma. We’ll then sail to the verdant landscapes of Madeira and the picturesque beaches and wildlife of Porto Santo. Your expedition cruise ends in Lisbon, one of southern Europe's most enchanting cities.
