We’re working on more details — check back soon! Meanwhile, here’s what we’re planning:
We’ll likely start in Barcelona and explore the city and surrounding area. Then we’ll fly to Bilbao (saving a 9-10 hour drive) to experience Basque country, with its incredible scenery and excellent food. Finally, we’ll venture farther west to Asturias, with its famed “Peaks of Europe.”
You’ll have multiple opportunities to be active, with hiking, biking, and kayaking. We’ll also include all of study travel’s traditional learning components, exploring Spain’s cultures, history, art, architecture, and local food and drink, including an experiential activity or two, such as a cooking class. As always, all activities are optional, and as per usual, we’ll deliberately schedule free chunks of time so that you can explore your own interests, such as attending a concert, soccer game, boat ride, etc.
Keeping in tune with Mediterranean culture, where meals take place much later in the day than we’re used to, we will include several group lunches, and keep most dinners on your own, so that you can decide how much and how late to eat.
Stay tuned for the itinerary, dates, and program fee!
