These botanical treasures originated from bulbs and seeds brought by British merchants who arrived on the island, having amassed their fortunes through the sale of wine.

Tenerife

Iona will dock in Arrecife, the island’s capital, derived from the Spanish word for 'reef,' a nod to the vast rock reef that blankets the island's beaches. You’ll have the entire day to enjoy its sun-washed plazas, cool bars and atmospheric backstreets.
