Spain is a country born of passion, where days filled with stunning vistas and an ever-changing landscape give way to warm nights filled with incredible atmosphere and gastronomy. There is quite simply no city in Spain which is not stunningly beautiful and in between these Baroque, Gothic and Moorish masterpieces, there are villages bursting with life and locals who offer heartfelt welcomes. From the towering peaks of the Pyrenees and Picos de Europa, to sun-baked volcanic islands, Spain is a patchwork of beautiful landscapes, ready to be explored by bike or on foot.
The astonishing peaks of the Picos de Europa are as beautiful as any in Europe and offer a myriad of extraordinary hiking trails. The beautiful northern coast is described as Green Spain, with its verdant panoramas, undulating coast and cuisine that is arguably the best in the world. Sun-drenched Andalucia in the south holds some of the greatest architectural cities in Spain as well as tiny whitewashed villages and the drama of the Sierra Nevada mountains.
Spain is a wonderland of adventure, just waiting for you to join in.
The Picos de Europa, without a doubt the most impressive mountains in all of Spain, emerge dramatically from the coastal landscape as a natural frontier between the green north coast and the more arid Castille. This program offers a variety of landscapes to explore in the Eastern and Central Massifs, with the option of choosing easier or more difficult daywalks.
The Sierra de Grazalema is an "undiscovered" oasis of green, a mountainous area adorned by picturesque white-washed villages such as Grazalema or Montejaque. A landscape of limestone sculptures marked by deep gorges, where vultures nest among the cliff tops.
When the Creator was putting finishing touches on Southern Europe, he had a variety of Mediterranean landscapes left over and decided to create an island where they would all fit in: Mallorca. This is what the Mallorquins say, when they try to explain the attractive diversity of their homeland. Gently rolling inland hills, fertile farmland, sandy beaches, impressive sea cliffs, subtropical woodlands and a massive limestone mountain range to the west.
Gran Canaria gives new meaning to the words ‘desert island’. Approaching it for the first time, you see none of the beauty associated with La Gomera or La Palma: arid terrain, hothouses and poor urban planning.Yet as you venture north, the terrain opens up and true marvels appear: Agaete Valley, an oasis of tropical plantations and tiny white villages.
