  • Description: Our new north Spain trip showcases the ultra-modern urban treats of Bilbao, like the landmark Guggenheim museum, and rural spots, like Covadonga and the Picos de Europa national park. It's Insider moments like… staying the night in a real Renaissance palace, where Napoleon's troops once rested before they attacked nearby Vitoria. Stepping into the grand sandstone structure, you see it has been polished into a modern retreat but still feel the history in its wooden floors and hamlet setting. In Oviedo, it's in the icy cider your Travel Director hands to you as you relax together in a bar. Sipping the cool nectar, they share the town's love of the drink – a passion obvious from its many 'sidrerias', or cider houses.


On every itinerary, we offer a range of optional excursions that allow you to further enhance your experience should you so choose. These are purchased when you are on your trip, via your Trafalgar Travel Director. Depending on the region visited these can be paid with cash or credit card.

A reduction of 25% of the cost of the Optional Excursions is offered to all children under the age of 16 years at the time of travel. Please Note: This discount to does not apply to North America optionals, as they are already discounted.
