Spain Tours – 14 Best Vacation Packages in Spain

Many of us dream of a day where we can step into the world of sangria and siestas. Spain is known for its parties, food, wine, beaches, relaxing atmosphere, and its old world charm and architecture. In other words, all of the good things in life.

Seeing as it has everything you could possibly want in a relaxing and stimulating vacation, we did some research to find a Spanish tour for every individual taste or mood. So whether you are looking for an adventurous once-in-a-lifetime experience, a relaxed tour of the food and wine of Spain, or a party from beginning to end (with new scenery to wake up to of course) we’ve got you covered.

These are the Top 14 tours and vacation packages that Spain has to offer. Whatever you choose, we know that you will love every minute of it!

1.  Classic Spain Tour

There are so many incredible things to see and do in Spain. This Classic Spain tour is the one to choose if you’re aiming to catch all the highlights.

You’ll experience Antoni Gaudi’s Barcelona (everyone’s favourite Barcelona!), explore ancient Moorish palaces, as well as the incredible red-clay fortress of the Alhambra. And beyond the exploring that you’ll do, is the culture that you will experience.

You can live like a local in a “casa rural” in the Pyrenees and live the slow life. We recommend taking a siesta, embracing local customs! Then you will watch a flamenco performance in Seville.

The tour promises many of Spain’s “I-can’t-believe-we-did-that” moments, which we love. After all, one of the main reasons we travel is for the enduring memories.

You’ll go on a tapas crawl, visit a world-renowned centuries-old farmers market, and also take cooking classes so that you can make your favourite dishes back home for your friends and family. So this trip can have more long-term effects than perhaps a higher jean size (worth it).

You’ll even do a wine tasting one day, a cheese tasting another. And all of this glory is set in beautiful northern Spain. They call it a Spanish food pilgrimage, and we couldn’t agree more that this is certainly worth the journey.

The Camino De Santiago is a world-renowned pilgrimage for a reason. You’ll find that there is nothing like a slow-paced adventure to take in the glory of Spain. Strolling through green valleys and sleepy old towns, you’ll see it all

Also, we love that the groups are small, averaging at 10. This way you get to know people more intimately, if that’s what you’re after. Also, we like small groups because there is a more personalized approach during the experience. When you have to stop 50 people because you are in the mood for tacos, it’s not so easy.

  • This trip includes luggage transportation, so you aren’t weighed down by your backpack
  • 9 nights of charming accommodation where you can rest up and charge your photo taking devices
  • There’s no travelling stress involved, as everything is planned for you

If you prefer cycling over walking, and want to go further and see more, then this is the trip for you. In this cycling tour you will cover 300km through the stunning Galician countryside, and over undulating mountains. It is certainly one of the most rewarding tours on offer.

This trip is not for the faint-hearted and requires a good fitness level and cycling experience. You must be ready to spend 8 days in the saddle, and often going up hills. But if you fit the bill and are keen on adventure, then there is no better tour for you.

You’ll meet pilgrims from all over the world, on foot and on two wheels. There’s a certain sense of camaraderie between the travellers which is unique to this kind of physical adventure.

What We Love Most:

  • A support vehicle transports your luggage for you, and while it can’t stay with you on the narrower paths, it is helpful in case of possible problems
