More Spain River Cruises

This river cruise takes you to the heart of Spanish Andalucia from Seville. Discover the delightful cities of Granada, Cordoba, Jerez and Cadiz on an exciting programme of excursions.

Leaving Seville, sail past the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve of Donana to Cadiz for a visit to Jerez and discover its heritage of flamenco and horse-breeding, and of course, sherry production. In Sanlucar de Barrameda, taste Manzanilla wine and experience an equestrian display.

Your ship returns to Seville for a guided tour of Granada and a visit to the magnificent Alhambra Palace, surrounded by the lush gardens of the Generalife. Seville is surrounded by unspoilt countryside and the next day there is a guided tour of one of its nature reserves with the chance to spot a variety of birdlife.

End on a high note with a tour of Cordoba which includes a visit to the splendid mosque-cathedral. It has over 800 fluted columns decorated with jasper and granite. Your visit to this Moorish city ends with a lunch of tapas served in a local restaurant.
