Northern Spain Tours & Holidays
Join us on a holiday to Northern Spain
Northern Spain boasts incredible, unique cuisine with its award-winning wine-producing regions, like La Rioja, and the delicious pintxos tapas - a mini-stack of delicious tapas typical of the Basque region.
It’s easy to envisage Spain as all sun and sand, as the Costa del Sol and Gaudi-blessed Barcelona. But Northern Spain brings another kind of depth and excitement, as well as even more opportunities for exploration if you have typically gravitated towards the south. And one of the best ways to see it is on a Northern Spain escorted tour.
Northern Spain holidays are your chance to get up close and personal with the cultural charms of Cantabria and Asturias, Galicia and Castilla y León, all distinctive provinces in their own right. In this part of the country, the landscapes shift from rugged, dusty plains to lush coastlines and spectacular mountain ranges/ Ancient cities and medieval villages dot the Camino de Santiago, a trail which pilgrims have dutifully and piously walked for centuries to reach the Santiago de Compostela, considered to be the final resting place of the apostle St. James.
Of course, we can’t touch on Northern Spain without boasting about its unique and memorable cuisine. Home to a range of award-winning wine-producing regions, like La Rioja, and delicious pintxos tapas - a mini-stack of delicious appetizers typical of the Basque region - of San Sebastian, it’s a guarantee you will be well-fed.
If you consider yourself a history aficionado and don’t want the attractions to end when your day does, take the rare opportunity to lay your head in a place of rich and stunning history. With the Parador hotels of this region, you can take your rest in beautifully-equipped accommodation that used to be palaces, castles, and convents. So, go on. Find yourself on a holiday in Northern Spain. Luxury hotel lovers, cuisine fiends, and art and history buffs are all welcome.
