Best of Northern Spain

12 DAYS, 11 NIGHTS

Northern Spain is internationally renowned for the quality of its cuisine and has become an undeniable pin on the map for food enthusiasts. ​Take part in the highly popular local tradition of pintxos in the Basque Country, and also try some of the best restaurants in San Sebastián, a city that holds the highest number of Michelin stars per square meter in Europe. We’ll also visit a sidreria in Asturias to taste some local cider where the custom is to pour your beverage from lofty heights. Other culinary highlights include a private visit to a remote cheese cave in the mountains and wine tasting of the nearby La Rioja region.


Although gastronomy is one of the main pillars in Northern Spain’s culture, it's also one of the most undiscovered regions for tourists in terms of natural beauty. Asturias, the principality of the heir apparent to the Spanish Royal Crown,  is synonymous with beautiful landscapes. This natural paradise is one of the best-kept secrets of Spain and is also amazingly distinct from the rest of sun-parched Spain. Its coastal area has over two hundred beaches where the verdant of its vegetation and the blue of its waters melt in one lush color that make this region so unique.

Price Starts at $8,600 pp
