Languages: Spanish, English and Danish.

My name is Virginia Fernandez de Vega and I am the founder and owner of "Spain is More". I was born and raised in León in Northern Spain and I am therefore your best guide to the region. Our office is located in the beautiful old part of León.

I have learned English from one year at a university in Scotland and many stays in USA. Furthermore, I have lived in Denmark for 6 years and I speak Danish as well.

I have organized many trips to Northern Spain for people who wanted to visit my fantastic home-area. All with a fantastic result and with lots of happy returning guests.

Such an unknown part of Spain has a lot to offer to foreign tourists, and Spain is More was created with the aim of helping people experience this wonderful corner of Spain.

The interest for holidays in Northern Spain has greatly increased and today we work closely with local tourist organizations and other stakeholders in the Northern Spanish tourist industry and we all have the same goal; granting our guests with a fantastic experience in Northern Spain.

We look forward to welcoming you in this undiscovered paradise.

Over the past 13 years I have visited Northern Spain on countless occasions. Since 2009 I have been living in León - in the north-western part of Spain. I like to take every opportunity to visit new parts of the area or increase my knowledge of already known destinations. This way we can continue to expand and update our extensive guidebook that our guests receive before their holiday. 

Northern Spain will be able to satisfy even the most demanding guest because the area is incredibly varied. This fact also makes everyday fun, as the search for new destinations includes everything from visiting attractive beaches and high mountains to beautiful castles and historic towns. Not least, it includes visiting the best hotels in the region and trying out exciting activities to find the best solutions for our guests. 

We only work with high quality places and we expect an extraordinary level of service from our partners, so that our guests will experience the very best of Northern Spain. 

I look forward to hearing from you so that I can send you a proposal for your special holiday in Northern Spain.

Happy Holiday manager for The Netherlands and Belgium
Languages: Dutch, English and German.

In May 2018, I started walking from Vezelay  (France) in the directions of Santiago de Compostela finishing in Finisterre and then Muxia.  In total I have been on the road for over 3 months and have covered 2,000 km. A wonderful and unforgettable experience! What I enjoyed the most is the contact with pilgrims from all over the world, nature, silence and simplicity. The only thing you are thinking of is hiking, eating, sleeping and the weather!

The North of Spain stole my heart during the Camino. This breathtaking part of Spain is very diverse and has so much to offer but it is still relatively unknown. With my own Camino experience, organizational talent, creativity and ability to listen, I am able to give my clients a fantastic experience during their Camino de Santiago or during their journey through northern Spain.

At Spain is More, I am responsible for the Dutch and Belgian part of our travel agency. I speak German as well as Dutch and English. Now that I live in León, I will also learn Spanish.

Happy Holiday Manager for the Scandinavian market
Languages: Danish/Scandinavian, Spanish and English.

At Spain is More I work as what we like to call " being a Happy Holiday Manager", simply because we really like what we are doing and because it is important to us, that our guests also get a feeling of the spirit we have at our office in León.

For more than 10 years I have been living in the coastal city, Vigo in Northern Spain, just next to the Atlantic Ocean with the Portuguese Camino de Santiago (The Way of St. James), practically passing by, just outside my front door.

Apart from living in Northern Spain for years, I have been working as a tour leader around Spain and Portugal, so although I´m Danish, I almost feel like I was born on the Iberian Peninsula – this part of the world is really like my other home. I believe, that this personal knowledge and my experiences give me an advantage when I´m organizing holidays for our Spain Is More guests.

Before I decided to live in Spain, I had a bicycle shop in Copenhagen, selling mountain bikes and hand-built cycles. I have travelled through many parts of the world with good friends, my beloved mountain bike and a pair of hiking boots. In regard to nature, I am devoted to the outdoor life, so having this job at Spain Is More is somehow a dream come true, as I get many opportunities to be out there, exploring our regions and finding new routes and secret places for our guests.

As for my educational background, I hold a bachelor’s degree in International Literature and Rhetoric and a Master's in Psychology of Language from The University of Copenhagen.

Please feel free to contact me, I will be happy to help create your perfect holiday experience and, of course, pass on my knowledge and passion for Northern Spain (and Portugal) to you.

My name is Sofia and I am responsible for the administration and bookings at Spain is More I will make sure everything is perfectly planned for your trip.

I really enjoy my job and I learn something new every day.

I was born in León where I also studied. During my university studies, I lived one year in Budapest and another one in England. I speak English and, of course, Spanish.

I love traveling and getting to know new cultures. The north of Spain is spectacular, and it never stops amazing me.  I always go to visit new places when I have the time.

Waking the Camino was a very enriching experience for me, both personally and professionally. What I liked the most was meeting new people every day and sharing our life stories.

Our Office

Our office is located in the heart of northwestern Spain, more specifically in León approx. 300 km north of Madrid.

The office is located in the main street of Leon’s stunning old town. Its geographical location is perfect because we can both ensure proximity to our customers during their holiday stay, and because we are close to our partners. Thus, we have our fingers on the regions pulse in order to offer our customers the best deals and best experiences.
