Why Northern Spain?

Why Northern Spain?

Despite of being a quite unknown area abroad, Northern Spain offers world-class experiences within nature, culture, gastronomy and traditions. Here it is possible to experience whatever you want to experience. Northern Spain has it all: a fantastic landscape with everything from high mountains to amazingly attractive beaches. Its cultural heritage is greatly influenced by the birth of current Spain. The region is home of the most modern Spanish cuisine and some of Spain's best wines are produced here. Not least you find endless possibilities for activities in the mountains and cities, at sea and on rivers. The area has not yet been discovered by international mass tourism, and the pleasant climate turns these regions into the preferred vacation paradise for Spaniards. You can expect a holiday where you will be met with hospitality and where quality is paramount. Northern Spain conceals countless secrets waiting to be discovered, tasted, seen and tried.

Nature

Nature in Northern Spain is unique. Few places offer such varied nature in such short distances. Whether you like mountains, coasts, forests, rivers, plains and idyllic river, northern Spain turns out beautifully.

Galicia

Galicia

Wedged into Spain’s extreme northwest corner, sitting above Portugal and hugging the Atlantic, Galicia is Spain’s most un-typical region. Comparisons with Ireland, Wales, or Brittany, are inevitable for these four Atlantic-rim territories are islands of Celtic culture in a European mainstream.

Nibbling Through Spain’s Cheese Country

Nibbling Through Spain’s Cheese Country

We were in Asturias, a sliver of northern Spain that rests on the Bay of Biscay, and I had been drawn there by the region’s tagline: “The Land of Cheese.”

THE only words of caution were, “Just be careful you don’t wake up the bats.” I was in a pitch-black cave following a 44-year-old woman wearing tight jeans and a small light strapped to her forehead. While my eyes refused to adju...

Spanish Wine Trails: Rioja and Ribera del Duero

Spanish wineries are entertaining places where tours are regular and decent tastings guaranteed. Spain’s top red-wine regions are ripe for lazy days of strolling and sampling.

Visiting a Spanish winery was once an experts-only affair. After making an appointment you would then be shown around, probably by the managing director, for several hours. If you said at the end “I’ll take three of the white”, t...

It's great up north: Why northern Spain is every bit the equal of the sun-kissed south

In the musical My Fair Lady 'the rain in Spain stays mainly in the plain', according to Professor Higgins. While this phrase may have provided a useful vocal exercise for Eliza Doolittle's glottal stops, in terms of travel information, it is absolutely useless.

If you head for the Spanish plain in search of rain – for example, the plains in Don Quixote country in La Mancha – you will be sorely disappointed. La Mancha takes its name from the Arabic word for 'arid' – it is as dry ...

Walk of a lifetime: Why the epic Camino trail across Spain is a route to true happiness

Walk of a lifetime: Why the epic Camino trail across Spain is a route to true happiness

You will have heard about life-changing journeys, but if I describe a 500-mile walk to Santiago de Compostela, I suspect your reaction would be: turn the page. But please don’t! I’d reached a time when I needed to re-assess, to reflect a little and decide what I’d like to do with the future.

When I embarked on the walk I was 63 and leading the sedentary life of a writer. The only walking I did was on the occasional Sunday afternoon after lunch.

Perhaps I should begin by telling you a few things that the Camino isn’t. F...

While society gets more and more complex and moves at an increasingly faster pace, our real strength, happiness, connection with self, others and our planet, blossoms at a pace closer to walking speed, about three miles an hour.
