A Green Paradise on the Iberian Peninsula

Northern Spain, often called “Green Spain”, is a region where nature unfolds in all its splendour. Its rolling green hills, majestic mountains and dramatic coastline will make you feel like you’ve arrived in a paradise on earth. The beauty of its landscapes is unsurpassed, and you’ll be immersed in a sea of emotions as you explore its natural parks, hiking trails and dreamy beaches.

Asturias: The Jewel of the North

Our tour of Green Spain begins in Asturias, a region known for its wild beauty and love of cider. Its Picos de Europa mountains, declared a Biosphere Reserve, will take your breath away with their snow-capped peaks and deep valleys. You can hike hiking routes such as the Ruta del Cares or simply relax on its unspoilt beaches on the coast.

Asturian cuisine is equally impressive. Try fabada, a bean stew, or enjoy a fresh seafood dinner on the coast. Don’t forget to wash it all down with a glass of Asturian cider, served with a unique ritual that adds a touch of fun to your dining experience.

Cantabria: Natural and Cultural Treasures

Continuing our journey west, we arrive in Cantabria, a land where nature and history are impressively intertwined. Discover the prehistoric wonders of the Altamira caves, with their cave paintings dating back thousands of years. And if you’re a beach lover, the golden sandy beaches along the Costa Verde are perfect for relaxing and enjoying the sun.

The Basque Country: Tradition and Modernity

Our next destination is the Basque Country, a region that perfectly combines tradition with modernity. The cities of Bilbao and San Sebastian are cultural and gastronomic centres not to be missed. Visit Bilbao’s iconic Guggenheim Museum, a masterpiece of contemporary architecture, or savour the famous pintxos in the bars of San Sebastian.

But the Basque Country is much more than its cities. The green mountains and rugged coastline offer a striking contrast, and you can explore everything from mountain trails to picturesque fishing villages.

Galicia: Land of Myths and Legends

On our journey northwest, we arrive in Galicia, a region that feels like a world apart. Galicia is famous for its connection to the Camino de Santiago, an ancient pilgrimage route that attracts travellers from all over the world. The cathedral of Santiago de Compostela is the end point of this route and a sacred place full of history and spirituality.

But Galicia is also a land of myths and legends. Its forests and rivers hide stories of witches and lost treasures that will take you back in time. And you can’t visit Galicia without trying Galician-style octopus, a delicious dish that represents the essence of Galician cuisine.

Siren songs in Asturias and Cantabria

If you love the coast, both Asturias and Cantabria offer unique experiences by the sea. Golden sandy beaches stretch along the Costa Verde, where the Atlantic waves caress the shore and create a relaxing and magical atmosphere. Don’t be surprised if you feel the legends of mermaids and sea creatures come to life in this breathtaking setting.

Euskadi: Adventure and Culture on the shores of the Bay of Biscay

The Basque Country is a region that combines the best of both worlds: adventure and culture. Its mountains offer opportunities for hiking and outdoor sports, while its cities are vibrant cultural centres. From the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao to the picturesque coastal city of San Sebastian, you’ll find a mix of tradition and modernity to delight you.

Mysteries in the Land of the Celts: Galicia

Galicia, with its mountainous landscape and rugged coastline, is a land full of mystery and mythology. Legends of witches and hidden treasures intertwine with the history of the Camino de Santiago, which attracts pilgrims from all over the world to the majestic Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela. To explore Galicia is to enter a world where magic and reality merge in fascinating ways.

Green Spain is a destination like no other. With its natural beauty, rich cultural heritage and unrivalled diversity, this region is a place where dreams come true. At Tour Travel & More, we are excited to offer you the opportunity to explore the “Indomitable North” and discover all the treasures this land has to offer.
