Discover the highlights of Northern Spain on this 8 day tour. Visit the largest city of the Basque Country, Bilbao, before heading to Leon with its stunning historical architecture and finally Burgos home to an extraordinary Gothic cathedral.

A perfect blend of old and new with cosmopolitan cities and ancient villages, rolling vineyards and rugged mountains, Northern Spain is as unforgettable as it is eclectic. Journey through this diverse region and discover some of Spain's hidden gems.

_________________________________________________

 

The tour starts in the beautiful Basque city of Bilbao, a city that has evolved considerably in recent years. With riverfront landscapes, quirky architecture and a plethora of art galleries Bilbao has matured into its role as a major European art centre. Heading south-west to the city of Leon, explore the charming back streets, grand monuments and ornate Gothic stonework. The city's loyal catholic heritage has made it an important stop on the famous Camino route to Santiago de Compostela. The astonishing Santa María Cathedral is one of Spain's finest.  Heading east you'll find the picturesque city of Burgos. Amongst the pretty streetscapes of the historic quarter is a masterpiece of Spanish Gothic architecture. Burgos' glittering jewel idral and beneath the majestic spires lies the tomb of El Cid, a Castilian military leader and national hero.
