Come on a journey through the north of Spain and get to the know the people, landscapes, customs and cuisine that combine to make this part of the country so fascinating. From delighting in the seaside charms of bustling Barcelona and enjoying the lively tapas bars of San Sebastian, to sipping delicious Rioja in Logrona and pulling up a seat in an atmospheric square in Madrid - this will be one eight-day adventure that you won't forget.
Day 1 Barcelona
Arrive in Spain and set off to explore the vibrancy of Barcelona. See great works of art in the Picasso Museum, head to the waterfront for a seaside paella, soak up the festive vibe on a stroll down Las Ramblas or catch the funicular to Montjuic for sweeping views of the city - Barcelona offers something for every taste.
Day 2 Pamplona
For centuries Pamplona has served as both a military stronghold and an important point on the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage trail. Get familiar with this city on a leisurely walking tour. Meander down winding alleys and step inside ornate cathedrals - in fact, Pamplona's Gothic cathedral is one of the most important religious buildings in Spain.
Days 3-4 Logrono
Logrono in the far north of Spain is noted for its delicious Rioja wine; drop by the wine museum to learn more about this region's famous tipple. Take the time to visit the cathedral or enjoy a leisurely walk along the river.
Days 5-6 San Sebastian
Travel to San Sebastian and relish the cool breezes coming off the Bay of Biscay. With its beautiful Old Town, a lively beach scene and a plethora of pintxos bars, San Sebastian is the perfect place to kick back and relax. Why not take a walk to the top of Mt Urgull for memorable views over the town below or catch the bus to Bilbao and visit Frank Gehry's architectural masterpiece, the Guggenheim.
Days 7-8 Madrid
Arrive in magical Madrid, a city overflowing with world-class art galleries, atmospheric city squares, manicured parks and gardens and heaving nightclubs and bars. Make time to celebrate the end of the North Spain adventure by visiting one of Madrid's lively neighbourhoods.
