  • Hidden Gems of Spain: Food

    Spanish food is absolutely delicious! Here are a few of our favorite dishes:

    Jamón Iberico: Rich cured pork found in the south-western Aracena region of Spain.

    Esqueixada: A tasty salad of shredded cod, tomatoes, and olives popular in Catalonia and Costa Brava

    Pulpo a Feira: Boiled octopus seasoned with sweet and salty paprika - a Galician specialty on the Camino Frances

    Tapas: Gambas al ajillo (fresh shrimp with garlic and cayenne pepper) and Patatas Bravas (fried potatoes in a spicy tomato sauce)

  • Best Places to Hike in Spain

    Besides the iconic Camino de Santiago, Spain has a plethora of other hiking areas:

    Costa Brava and Catalonia – With Barcelona at its heart, this region of Spain combines superb hiking trails and delicious food options. The rocky coast winds down the Mediterranean revealing tranquil hidden coves, whitewashed villages, and outstanding seafood. Journey into the mountains for more rural trails, stunning views, rustic food, and friendly welcomes. Cava and Priorat were created here, so make sure to enjoy a glass or two at the end of the day if you please!

    Andalucia – Consider Andalucia to escape the cold during the winter. The location of the southern coastal town makes it too hot to hike in the summer, but in the other months is a hiking paradise. Enjoy trails winding through whitewashed hilltop villages, and along dramatic, untouched coastlines. Stop in Granada and Seville to experience two of Spain’s great cities deep rooted in culture.

    Basque Country – Located in the far north, expect a gastronomic feast. San Sebastian is worth visiting on its own, but the Camino del Norte links it with Bilbao and creates a food focused spiritual journey. Pass through many fishing villages, amazing scenery and friendly people in this wonderful area of Spain.

    Canary Islands - Although far from Spain, the Spanish culture does not fade in these isolated islands off the coast of Africa. Each island has its own charm: from the botanic wonderland of La Gomera to the stark volcanic beauty of Tenerife. Hike in November to April for comfortable temperatures on the enchanting trails.

    Balearic Islands – Discover a completely different side of Ibiza through the secret hiking trails of the White Isle. In Mallorca, stay in hidden retreats and hike on beautiful coasts, or challenge yourself through the otherworldly mountains on the famous GR221 Tramontana trail.

    Best Places to Hike in Spain

  • Hiking the Camino de Santiago

    Every year, thousands embark on various routes to hike to Santiago de Compostela. A deep spiritual sense accompanies this journey, whether you seek it or not. Meeting fellow pilgrims, listening to their stories, and sharing your experience alongside them makes a Camino tour a transformative event.

  • Walking the Camino del Norte

    The north coast of Spain is one less visited by holidaymakers, which makes it the perfect place to explore Spain without the crowds.  What makes it even more perfect is the stunning scenery, outstandingly friendly locals and, of course, the food. The Camino del Norte is the quieter and arguably more beautiful cousin of the Camino de Santiago and this video gives you a broad overview of the first stage.
