Spain has been described as less of a country than a collection of small nations all working together. Each region has its own distinct character, style, even language. This quick eight-day trip introduces you to Spain's Basque and Catalan provinces the best way: through food, art, culture, and first-person contact. Vibrant Barcelona, unhurried San Sebastian, Bilbao's fabulous architecture, Logrono's famous cuisine, cosmopolitan Madrid, and the mighty Pyrenees, all in just over a week? Yeah, we did that. Come find out how.
Itinerary

Best of Northern Spain (from 2016)

Day 1 - Barcelona

Arrive at any time. We recommend arriving a day or two early to fully explore this vibrant city. There are no activities planned until an evening welcome meeting.

Day 2 - Barcelona/Pyrenees

Take the morning to explore beautiful Barcelona. Head to the Pyrenees region for 2 nights in a 'casa rural'. Enjoy home-cooked meals and hiking. Explore a bit of Barcelona before an afternoon departure north. Opt to pre-book the "Highlights of Barcelona Walking Tour" on the checkout page ahead of time, to include this optional on your trip. Travel to the Pyrenees by local bus and van to reach a 'casa rural', or converted farmhouse, near the town of Ainsa. Indulge in delicious local meals and time to explore the beautiful landscape.

Day 3 - Pyrenees

Enjoy the day in the scenic Pyrenees. Opt for some hikes in the area or head to Ainsa to explore. Spend another night in the 'casa rural'.

Day 4 - Pyrenees/Bilbao

Travel to Bilbao, the first stop in the unique Basque region of Spain. Arrive in the early afternoon. Opt to visit the stunning Guggenheim Museum, or climb the Mallona Stairs to Parque Etxebarria for beautiful views over the city.

Day 5 - Bilbao/San Sebastian/Bilbao

Take a day trip to San Sebastian. Opt to take a pintxos (tapas) tour and learn about the fascinating culture of the area. Return to Bilbao for the night. The real treat in this part of the country is the eating. Basque cuisine is famous in Spain and around the world, with many believing this is the best food in the country. While San Sebastian didn't invent tapas, they are well-acknowledged to have perfected them. Wander through the streets before lunchtime or in the evening and check out what each bar has on offer. Stop in each place for some wine or beer and sample their tapas (pintxos in Basque) selection. Move on to the next bar and repeat! Delicious seafood abounds here as well. Looking for more than just pintxos? Head to the harbour and hole up in a traditional simple tavern. Don't leave San Sebastian without trying the famous jamon iberico. The specialty drink in this area is called the Kalimotxo ?? half wine (usually red table wine) and half Coca Cola.Take some time to wander through the plazas, marvel at the buildings, and spot the art sprinkled throughout the city. And, as always, try the pintxos.

Day 6 - Bilbao/Logrono

Travel to Logrono and enjoy an included wine tasting in the Rioja region. With tons of churches, roman bridges, parks, plazas, and ancient buildings, there's no shortage of sights to be seen when wandering around this city.

Day 7 - Logrono/Madrid

Travel to Madrid and enjoy free time in this capital city.

Day 8 - Madrid

Depart at any time. We recommend staying an extra day or two to fully experience all this lively city has to offer.
