What to do in San Sebastian

If your ideal beach day looks like hopping into the waves, drying out in the sun, rinse and repeat, then head to Playa de la Concha in San Sebastian. But if you’re not afraid of a little helmet hair, we highly recommend exploring the Basque country by bike! Ride through the city’s network of bike trails and enjoy a local’s insight from your guide along the way.

What to do in Seville

Best of all, embark on a tasty journey through Andalusian cuisine on a guided tour of local markets and eateries.

What to do in Granada

Find the Arab baths, explore marvellous museums and boutique art galleries, plan an artisanal picnic at Madrid Río, or grab your camera and spend a day capturing the city’s most famous landmarks: Plaza de Cibeles square, Royal Palace, Plaza Mayor and so, so much more. Don’t forget to save some time for a visit to the Royal Monastery of San Lorenzo de El Escorial, just an hour outside the city.

Of course, for a taste of adventure and history, head straight to the Rock of Gibraltar to explore centuries-old tunnels and hike to the conservation area, home to a population of Barbary macaques.
