We help you plan your trip
Wine, pintxos, and art
This ten-day tour starts in Madrid, but ends in one of Spain’s most vibrant regions: the Basque Country. By the end, you’ll have walked through Madrid’s buzzing streets, drunk your way through some of the best riojas in Spain, and eaten pintxos in San Sebastián in bustling local cafes. Wrap it all up in Bilbao, where art meets Basque history, and where the colorful streets of La Casca explain why the northern region of Spain is one of its best.
Flavors of Spain Tour
pp excl. flightsPlan your trip
Start your tour in Madrid, and get a real flavor for Spain’s urban metropolis. Hop in a private carand explore all facets of this megacity, starting with the city’s legendary Museo del Prado. Enjoy the magic of the Plaza Mayor, one of the most famous colonial plazas in the world—and don’t forget to enjoy a bocadillo de calamar. In the evening, learn to make them yourself by taking a tapas cooking class—and head to La Latina for a glass of wine to finish the evening.
Your next stop is in the heart of La Rioja—gear up to enjoy some of the best red wines in the world. Visit a traditional winery, more than 125 years old, and taste wines harvested by the direct descendants of the founding family. After a taste, enjoy a gourmet lunch surrounded by the picturesque vineyard landscape: dig into some potatoes with chorizo and some traditional Bacalhau—all topped off, of course, with a glass of red from the region.
The Basque Country is yours next, and San Sebastián is one of its shining stars. Start your day with a walk down La Concha, an iconic beach in the shell-shaped bay. Stop for a quick snack at one of the cafes on the promenade—and be prepared to do a lot of that. Take a tapas tour in the evening and eat your way through the best pintxos and anchovies that the city has to offer.
Bilbao is the capital of the Basque Country, and today, you’ll see what makes the city a cultural epicenter of Spain. Take a walking tour and get lost in the meandering pathways of Casco Viejo, the city’s old quarter. For a dose of art, don’t miss out on the Guggenheim Bilbao Museum, one of the emblems of the art world, and the perfect way to say goodbye to this incredible city.
