Experience the charm of the Atlantic coast on a delightful sailing with stops in Leixoes for optional tours to Oporto, Lisbon, Gijon, Getxo for optional tours to Bilbao, Brest, and Honfleur. Immerse yourself in the vibrant energy of Oporto, explore the historic streets of Lisbon, and enjoy the cultural offerings of Gijon. Discover the maritime allure of Getxo, the maritime heritage of Brest, and the romantic ambience of Honfleur. Each port on this voyage offers opportunities to craft an unforgettable experience while tracing Western Europe's coastline.


Near the city of Porto, Leixos is one of Portugal's major seaports and is widely associated with the exporting of port wine. Day trips to Porto are a popular activity, but there are also quayside beaches and cafes to enjoy on either side of the Douro River.

Stretching along Spain's Basque coast is historic Getxo. Blending cultural richness with seaside charm, Getxo offers gorgeous promenade walks and the chance to indulge in traditional Basque cuisine in the town's famous Old Port.

Located on the briny coast of Brittany, the French port of Brest offers a seafaring spirit and countless maritime attractions. Stroll along quaysides, discover historic fortifications, and enjoy some unique Breton cuisine.

Nestled on France's Normandy coast, Honfleur mesmerises with its historic harbour and artistic ambience. Travel back in time as you explore cobbled streets and art galleries showcasing works by renowned painters like Eugene Boudin.
