Highlights of Spain
Whether you choose to explore the whitewashed towns of Andalucia, complete a pilgrimage on foot to Santiago de Compostela, cycle through valleys of blooming apricot blossom in Murcia, or take the family on a thrill-seeking adventure in the Pyrenees, our small group tours to Spain will create memories to last a lifetime. Here are just a few of the highlights of our adventure tours to Spain.
Discover a region rich in culture, fascinating history, breathtaking mountain scenery and plenty of sunshine on our Highlights of Andalucia Tour. Wander through the cobbled medieval back streets of Cordoba to find quaint terraced dwellings with wrought-iron balconies draped in colorful hanging baskets and sprawling veils of bougainvillaea flowers, and visit the Mosque-Cathedral to uncover exquisite Moorish architecture. Walk through wooded valleys and verdant rolling landscapes interspersed with clusters of whitewashed buildings and beautiful rural villages in the Sierra de Aracena National Park. End your trip with a visit to Seville to discover intricate Mudejar architecture and absorb yourself in the stately home of the royals at the Real Alcazar Palace.
Walk the Camino de Santiago
Make the famous pilgrimage from Leon to the shrine of Saint James the Great in the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela on our Camino de Santiago Walking Tour. This Moderate-graded walking trip will cover over 150 km in eight days as we follow the Camino-Frances trail through verdant undulating countryside, rural farmland and medieval villages. Ascend into the mountains to take in panoramic views from the Iron Cross, the highest point on the route, and explore the pretty cobbled streets of O Cebreiro with its round stone thatched houses and vast views of the patchwork quilt of green valleys below. Feel a huge sense of achievement as you approach the brow of the hill and spot your final destination in the distance, before heading into the historic city center to claim your pilgrim’s certificate and feast on delicious Spanish tapas to celebrate.

Cycle through Murcia
For those of you wanting something a bit more active, join our Southern Spain Cycling Tour to pedal through the beautiful countryside and ancient villages of Murcia. Join this tour in February to get the best view of the almond and apricot blossoms bursting into bloom, creating a sea of pink and white flowers through the valleys. All of our cycling tours include the hire of a bike, or e-bikes if you prefer. Alternatively, we have a number of self-guided cycling tours through Spain that take you through the medieval villages of Andalucia, along the golden sand beaches of Mallorca and through the vineyards of La Rioja.
Canyoning in the Pyrenees
Get the family set for a wild adventure in the Spanish Pyrenees on our Family Pyrenees Multi-Activity Adventure. Embark on an exhilarating roller coaster ride down the fizzing rapids of Noguera River and take a dip in the calm waters of Collegats Canyon. Dare to abseil down the jagged cliff face of Estaron, clamber along the river banks and slide down boulders on a canyoning adventure, or cling onto a hydrospeed board as you float along the river through the whirling rapids and pools. Stay on dry land for a day of mountain biking through the Montgarri Valley or jump on horseback for a hack through the countryside, before relaxing by the pool at the family-run spa hotel.
Solo adventures in Spain
If you are planning to tour alone, rest assured that all of our trips to Spain are suitable for solo travelers. In fact, many adventurers join us on their own. Our small group tours are a great way to meet like-minded people, make new friends and explore the beautiful scenery of Spain in a safe and hassle-free way.
