Famous for beach holidays, delicious paella and thirst-quenching sangria, Spain has so much more to offer when you explore behind the scenes. Yes, many of our holidays in Spain feature beaches (and swimming pools in hidden away hotels) but our handpicked choices are far from the bustling crowds you normally picture when you think of Spanish holidays.
Get a real feel for the country, during our Contrasts in Catalunya, as you walk along pretty coastal paths through lush green valleys, ancient cork and pine forests, and sun-drenched villages off the tourist trail. Or see one of the world’s most famous UNESCO Heritage Pilgrim routes – the Camino de Santiago, through our comprehensive itinerary notes that pick up the best hidden gems along the way.
If you fancy taking your adventure on two wheels, our Cycling in Andalucía from Seville to Cadiz, gives you a real flavour of the essence of Spain, whether you’re hypnotised by the intimate flamenco performances in the winding streets of Seville or savouring the delicious “Jerez” as you ride through its dazzling old quarter.
If you’re looking to get away from the mainland, why not discover the coastal trails of Menorca and Gran Canaria on foot or by bike. Offering a delightful mix of tranquil villages and stunning panoramic views, these climates are perfect for exploring all year round.
