Cruises from El Hierro
El Hierro is the smallest and farthest of the Canary Islands, an Autonomous Community of Spain, 380km off the West coast of Africa. El Hierro is sharply mountainous and volcanic. The island has a varied landscape. There are fertile fields and meadows, pine woods, subtropical vegetation and hundreds of volcanic fissures found inland.
However, according to the Spanish National Geographic Institute, there is currently no risk of volcanic or seismic activity on the island. It measures less than 50 km across, and is a haven of peace in the Atlantic Ocean.
