We’ve just waved off a large group from Australia who undertook a Customised Agricultural Themed Tour of Spain & Portugal. We specialise exclusively in bespoke itineraries at Totally Spain and we’ve really been able to flex our muscles and showcase the very best of Spanish agriculture on this one! We’ve done quite a few of these research trips for agricultural companies and organisations since we started in the year 2000 and we thought it might be interesting to share the types of trips and places that we can custom arrange for you and any group interested in Agricultural Touring in Spain.
It’s been a while since we wrote about the Camino de Santiago, so we thought we’d bring you some of the alternative Camino routes in Spain which can be walked, cycled, ridden and driven. Yes, driven!
We are huge fans of a busy city break or a long weekend of pampering but sometimes our bodies and our brains need a complete change of pace, a place to de-compress from our busy schedules, in a location where time seems to last longer or has stopped altogether. When we need one of those days, we know just where to go – one of the many beautiful walled towns in Spain. That’s where we put all our day-to-day concerns on hold, we step back in time and really absorb the history and the architecture. We’re not talking about sleepy hollows or museum-like communities. Spain’s walled towns are lively places where real families live and go to school and run businesses. Here’s our list of Spain’s most interesting and enjoyable walled towns – perfect for a daytrip or that mid-week break you’ve been promising yourself for ages.
It’s no wonder we are obsessed about wine here at Totally Spain. Spain is the world’s largest producer of wine and the country with the largest number of vineyards in the world – a whopping 13 percent of the world’s vineyards are on Spanish soil. We love telling our clients that after cereals and olives, the grape is Spain’s most cultivated crop – and the one we probably spend most time talking (and thinking) about. If you’d like to know which wineries this Spain-based travel specialist recommends visiting, and yes, we have racked up quite a few visits since we started our business near La Rioja in 2000, read on!
Nothing says holidays more than a car, a suitcase, sunglasses, and the open road. And here in Spain, we have a wonderful road infrastructure including shiny new three-lane highways that get you out of the cities plus plenty of those romantic rural roads that snake around the mountain ridges and coastal cliffs when you want them too. We know these roads because we are a Spain-based travel agent. Totally Spain has been a custom travel specialist in Spain since 2000.
September is a fantastic month to visit Spain. Not so hot, not so crowded and when much of the Northern hemisphere is switching on the heating and getting out the boots and sweaters, you are still able to enjoy a day out on the sea or a hike and picnic in the hills.
