Travel at Your Leisure are Travelling from Bilbao to Madrid, 14 - 27 May 2016
12 Days / 13 Nights
Come on your own or bring your partner, your parents, your friends. “Grapes, Gastronomy, Gothic and Gehry” offers a leisurely introduction to Northern Spain, with something for everyone. Singles and coiuples are equally welcome, so whether you already love group travel or are embarking on your first adventure, Travel at Your Leisure will provide you with an itinerary and tour to remember.
Your trip starts in Bilbao, home of the fantastic Frank Gehry designed Guggenheim Museum and moves on to explore food and wine in San Sebastian and Rioja, as well as the gothic charms of Burgos as we travel south to the royal city of Madrid.
You will stay in small hotels, full of charm and character, but still offering everything to meet the modern traveller’s needs. These properties pride themselves on their care and hospitality and will ensure a perfect stay for you.
The architecture in the region is hard to beat. The Gothic delights in San Sebastian and Burgos will take your breath away and Frank Gehry’s Guggenheim Museum and Hotel Marques de Riscal in Rioja may just leave you speechless. There will be wonderful restaurants for the gourmands , with stunning views and food to match and the art galleries and museums offer a wide range of modern and classical arts.
Our guided tours will focus on some of the regions famous draw cards, but there will be plenty of time for you to explore at your own pace, lie on a beach, revisit a spot that intrigued you earlier, or track down a hard to find pintxo bar.
Your group will consist of no more than 10 people so you won’t get lost in the crowd, and we have engaged local tour guides to share their specialised knowledge with you along the way. Transport between all destinations will be by private minibus.
If you would like a leisurely introduction to the delights of Northern Spain then Travel At Your Leisure in Northern Spain is the tour for you.
