Northern Spain

Taste it

The Basque Country is different. This is where mountain peaks reach for the sky and sublime rocky coves are battered by mighty Atlantic swells. It’s a place that demands exploration beyond the delightful and cosmopolitan main cities of Bilbao, Vitoria and San Sebastián. You travel through the Basque Country always curious, and frequently rewarded.

And on the way to the west, two of Spain’s best-kept secret, Cantabria and Asturias, with their colorful fishing towns, the mountains, the friendliest people, the Casas Indianas, the wild beaches..

Galicia, a unique region with its own language and distinctive culture, is home to Santiago de Compostela, the goal of several hundred thousand people who set out yearly on the storied Camino de Santiago pilgrim trail. Santiago is one of Spain’s most beautiful and magical cities, and an exceptionally good reason for any traveller, pilgrim or not, to make their way to Spain’s northwestern corner. And the wild coastline is frayed up and down its 1200km length by majestic rías (coastal inlets), and strung with cliffs, beaches, islands and fishing ports that bring in indisputably the best seafood in Spain.
