Do Something Out of the Ordinary with our Really Creative Spanish Itineraries

Ever noticed how people from Spain usually talk about their own region rather than the country as a whole? It’s because Spain is a very diverse country and the geography, landscape, climate and even the language changes from region to region. It’s part of what makes a trip here so exciting. Sometimes clients think they have to choose one part of Spain to visit. But they’re wrong! They don’t have to choose between the the gastronomy, winery and pilgrimage trips in the North, the Moorish architecture, sherry tastings and skiing in the South and the Dalí, Gaudí, paella and Calatrava sights of the North East and East. They can have it all!

Being a Spain-based company, we have first-hand knowledge of the Spanish terrain (and thanks to some extensive research trips now in Portugal also), and have honed our travel planning skills so we’ve always been able to produce some really interesting trips. And lately, because travelling into and across this country (and Portugal) has become more accessible than ever, we are producing some really amazing itineraries that have us beaming with satisfaction.

Not only are the regional airlines such as EasyJet and Ryanair making it easier to arrive into regional locations but the increased competition internally within Spain means that flying domestically has become much cheaper and it has really opened up the country. So now we really can prepare trips to the four corners of Iberia.

For an example of what we’re talking about, we’ve just planned a trip for a group who want to walk the Camino de Santiago for a week and then fly (inexpensively with Ryanair) from Santiago direct to Seville for a week touring Seville, Cordoba & Granada. Before it would have taken a day or two overland or it would have been prohibitively expensive to fly.

In addition to these improved airlinks, we’re also making great use of the amazing high-speed train network that connects a growing number of cities each year. The latest route connects Madrid and Barcelona with Paris and a number of other French cities such as Avignon and Marseille! And although we often forget to mention it, driving in Spain is a cinch, with excellent road networks – making it easier than ever for you and your fellow travellers to get around.
