This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetAll of our travels are individual, tailor-made vacations, which basically give our guest the chance to discover Northern Spain their way.
In many aspects Northern Spain is less developed, tourism wise, than southern Spain. This is, however, a considerable competitive parameter, as the experiences get unique. We spend a lot of time finding the most interesting, most knowledgeable and most service-minded partners in the area, to help us to give our guests truly exceptional holiday in Northern Spain.
It is not only an interesting and authentic way to see Northern Spain, but at the same time you have the chance to support the local communities and their small-scale productions.
Using this approach, we are able to offer whale-, brown bear-, bird- watching, fishing from a fishing boat, collecting and preparing local food and gastronomy with ecological products, sustainable wine-tourism etc. Each local person assisting us, is truly enthusiastic about his/her field and by working with these people, we support the activity, the animals, the park or the local community, as most of the guides as well are archaeologists, ornithologists, geologists, restaurant owners, local farmers etc.
We are proud to be able to develop and support small societies and not least enthusiastic people that make a difference, and that support and commits to our environmental values.
PeopleOur guests typically look for a different experience and an alternative to large-resort-commercial-travels. The peacefulness, the small villages, the local food, “secret” beaches and amazing mountain hikes and not least 100% customized pilgrimage are keywords in our philosophy and daily work visiting and discovering new places for our guests.
All of our guest receive, prior to departure, a comprehensive guidebook describing norms and hints how to get the most out of their holiday.
In this guidebook we describe our recommendations on where to find local craftwork, where to find smaller interesting museums as well as tips for the larger ones.
We describe as well how to experience things, which are impossible to find for foreigners, like how and where to witness the local wildlife in a respectful manner.
Local gastronomy is an important part of the local culture, and across Northern Spain, the variety is great and very exciting. We intent always to be up-to-date on the best local restaurants, and we guide you through local dishes, wines etc.
Our office is located in the heart of Northern Spain, in the old historic town of León. Our prime focus is to show our guests the most authentic, most beautiful and loveliest parts of Northern Spain. We always share our guest’s experiences with the hotel and other collaborations partners we work with, to help develop local tourism into a sustainable and healthy destination, that is differentiated from similar areas in Spain, Italy and France. Its important for Us to give our guests an experience that is not reachable in other parts of Europe, though showing the real local life and hidden places. We cant wait to welcome you to Northern Spain.
