We’ll join up & kick off in the sultry Spanish city of Barcelona. From the hip hood of Gracia to the iconic church of Sagrada Família, this city is a utopia of possibilities. We’ll warm up to the spirit of adventure with a welcome dinner, then the night hours will be open to us if we’re feeling mischievous.
From the Gothic Quarter to the LaRambla district, we won’t leave a pocket of this sizzling city uncovered. You can choose to take a cruise of the backstreets by bike & sign up for a traditional Flamenco Show over dinner. Top off with churros and sangria for ultimate Spanish bliss.
Switching from ancient streets to strobe lights, we’ll take voyage by ferry to the world’s party capital of Ibiza.
Life will be dialled up to 100% from the moment we pull up at port. Day parties, DJs, beach clubs, warehouse bars – this island has earned its reputation as a mecca of good times. Take to the nightlife on our first night or stay low key knowing we have two more nights ahead of us to enjoy this playground.
Those not fussed on 6am dance floor sessions will find no shortage of enjoyment from the pristine beaches and water sports abounding on the island. Roam tiny Spanish food markets or hippie garb markets in the island’s centre, between long beach dips and clothes-optional sunbaking. See the daylight hours out with sunset at the original Café del Mar and a Munch worthy meal of fresh seafood.
Though you could never quite exhaust all the excitement on offer in Ibiza, today might call for a boat trip somewhere new, say the idyllic isla of Formentera? Later you can shimmy yourself into the early hours of the morning, making the most of our final hours island side.
Muchas gracias, Ibiza. Today we wave goodbye to our new favourite party paradise and head back to the mainland. Save the sobs – we have plenty of balmy nights and adventure left ahead of us.
After our Mediterranean Sea sail & a short bout by land, we’ll find ourselves in Valencia, where crumbling coloured buildings meet spaceship looking architecture, and parks and fountains fill the streets. Step one of our cultural immersion will be to sign up for a cook off & dinner – Valencia is the birthplace of Spain’s much adored paella dish after all.
Though we’ll feel sincere love for Spain’s third largest city, we won't be dwelling on sad feels too much given our final destination. Pack your bags, we’re headed to Madrid.
From rooftop bars to 1920’s architecture, Madrid holds an unassuming charm and multi-layered persona that’s hard to resist. We’ll bunker down here for the rest of our trip, getting acquainted with every nook and cranny.
Today you’ll be guided by an uncovering City Tour, and have the opportunity to venture beyond the city skirts to the medieval walled city of Toledo. Later you could take to the hip hub of the Malasaña district or catch some reflection rainbows at the Crystal Palace of Buen Retiro Park. Top it all off with a Farewell Española dinner, saving your goodbye tears for the AM.
Our last morning on tour is a license to get a little sombre, then patch things up by eating churros for breakfast. We’ll say our goodbyes before going our separate ways, and quickly putting more travels in the pipeline.
