Cantabria - Green Spain

Cantabria - Green Spain

Once again we are delighted to offer this very popular tour. Whether it's the fantastic beaches, the historic towns and villages, rolling hills or lofty mountains of the Picos de Europa you're looking for, Cantabria offers the lot. A gentle, predominantly rural, province but with plenty of action if that's what you're looking for, Cantabria offers good, old-fashioned, seaside or mountain holidays with plenty of adventure for all the family. Between the Atlantic Ocean and the ridge of the Picos De Europa Mountains the scenery is almost Alpine and the climate soft.
