Fortified cities and fishing villages, rugged Atlantic coastline and commanding Pyrenees peaks, and intimate lodgings in historic paradores and pousadas – it all awaits on this singular 17-day small group journey.  Begin your travels with Lisbon’s highlights and time for independent exploration here.  Cruise on Oporto’s Douro River and sample the region’s famed port wine.  Tour beautiful Santiago de Compostela, last stop along the celebrated Way of St. James pilgrimage route.  Encounter Leon’s impressive architectural heritage, and continuing to Bilbao, visit the acclaimed Guggenheim and Fine Arts museums.

Embark on a day-long excursion along the rugged Basque coastline, with a poignant stop in Guernica.  Spend two nights in the stunning Pyrenees region, visiting fabled Pamplona, and experiencing dramatic Ordesa y Monte Perdido Park.  The journey’s finale:  a three-night stay in world-class Barcelona with touring and time at leisure.  Discover more of this spirited city independently on an optional 3-day/2-night post-tour extension
