Description of Spain tailor made holiday, Green Coast

Spain’s glorious Green Coast stretches from Basque country towards the northwest of the Iberian Peninsula to offer travellers an altogether different perspective of life on the Spanish coastline far from the madding crowds further south.

This eight day tour has been tailor made to invite a unique glimpse at Spain’s gastronomic and cultural delights where beautiful beaches, mountain villages and characterful seaside towns collide in a crescendo of colour and naturally historic heritage.

Comparing the sophistication of the Basque region with the laid back rural charm of Galicia offers further insight into this untouched area of Spain with chances to stay in a series of state owned castles and converted manor houses offering a little bit of luxury in between mountain slopes and pristine coast.

Food will never be far from your thoughts throughout this week on the Green Coast which is why you’ll receive a bounty of recommendations for restaurants and other cultural points of interest as part of a pre-departure information pack, just to ensure you’re ready to go, right from the off.

Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

All 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.

This roundtrip is (initially) made in a smaller environmental friendly car. Some of the areas you visit are home to endangered animals, like birds and bears, and its important to be aware of each person responsible towards maintaining this unique environmental status of each area. Before your departure, you will receive a guidebook which include guidance and requirements on how to behave in each area to get the most out of the experience and, at the same time, respect the animals or the nature.

Furthermore, its 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 archaeologist, ornithologist, geologist, restaurant owner, local farmer 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.

The Impacts of this Trip

Our 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 hint, how to get the most out of their holiday.
In this guidebook we describe our recommendation 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.
