Spain is beautiful…full stop! But like all of our trips, we want to dig a little deeper and look for the hidden gems. Well, we found a treasure chest of gold nuggets in Northern Spain. From spectacular snow-capped mountains to gorges unlike anything you’ve seen to a coastline that is jaw dropping from water and land.
It’s a Paddler’s paradise, a Hiker’s paradise, a Cyclists’ paradise, a Canyoner’s paradise. In short, this jam-packed adventure will leave you wanting more and guess what, there is more…the food, oh the food!! Tapas in Spain is culinary art and paired with one of their red wines is pure bliss. Don’t forget to try the cider, Northern Spain is famous for their cider and bagpipes…that’s right, bagpipes.
Come see, taste and adventure with us in this very special region of the world.
