The Spain-dedicated tour operator Hidden in Spain will offer travel advisors 15 percent commission when they book certain tours. Valid through the end of April, the deal only applies to the group’s collection of preplanned itineraries.
Hidden in Spain’s Wine (and Food) Lovers Tour offers seven days of culinary exploration, mixed with visits to scenic villages, castles and cathedrals. Travelers start in Bilbao, then move on to San Sebastián, Laguardia, Peñafiel, León and Galicia. Highlights include two possible dinners at Michelin-starred restaurants; a bar-hopping, pintxos-tasting tour in San Sebastián; and a guided tour of the nearly 2,000-year-old city León.
Travelers can go on a more in-depth tour of the region surrounding León with another of Hidden in Spain’s seven-day trips. Guests explore some of the most scenic villages, including several along the Camino de Santiago, a historic pilgrimage route that stretches for hundreds of miles. Hidden in Spain offers a wide range of similar seven-day, regional preplanned tours, including ones to Asturias, Cantabria and Basque Country.
Those interested in a much longer trip can choose to hike the Camino de Santiago. Hidden in Spain offers a range of options, from a five- or six-day (depending on walking speed) trip along the most popular stretch, to six-week journeys that come out to a little less than 500 miles.
Travelers less inclined toward weeklong walking trips can choose from one of Hidden in Spain’s Renfe Transcantabrico Train trips, which range from four to eight days in length. With these options, guests travel through northern Spain aboard a train that features its own disco and bars. Along the way, travelers sample local cheeses, sausages, meat vegetables and more.
