Its ancient castles; snowy mountain peaks; important monuments; sandy beaches and elegant cities make it one of the top travel destinations in the world. In fact, it’s impossible to run out of fun things to do in Spain. Located in the extreme southwest of Europe, Spain encompasses soul-stirring landscapes of all shapes and sizes.

Catalonia feels very different from the rest of Spain, be it for its language, peculiar local customs or four diverse provinces with a fantastic wealth of natural and cultural splendor. No wonder it’s one of the top places to visit in Spain! You can indulge in the Pyrenean peaks looming above meadows, sparkling lakes on sunny days or plains dotted with volcanic cones. If your heart yearns for the sea, the rocky coves bordering picturesque sandy beaches will welcome you into the world of serene seaside paths. Catalonia is most known for its bohemian capital, Barcelona, that heaves with culture, history, and vivacious dynamism. However, there is much more to explore beyond. The biggest lure for beach lovers are the shores of Costa Brava. On the other hand, those interested in Medieval architecture will find their paradize in Girona and art enthusiasts will enjoy Dalí's charmingly surreal theatre-museum' in Figueres.

Spain with it sun-drenched land, fiesta-loving culture, guitar-wielding musicians, reckless bullfights, and passionate flamenco. While this portrait is too romantic, somewhat outdated, and even plainly stereotypical, it’s not entirely untrue. Despite the inevitable loom of modernization, Andalucía maintains its gloriously captivating and spirited ambiance that swallows you unexpectedly. Before you can even say a word, you will find yourself crammed in a bustling tapas bar or wholly immersed in a raw flamenco performance. But that’s not all! Another part of Andalucia’s appeal lies in its history that unraveled on a shakey frontier of two contrasting faiths, Christianity and Islam. This clash of ideologies created an unmatched mix of architecture and art you won’t see anywhere else! Therefore, when you visit Andalucia, you won’t be short off memorable experiences on your Spain holidays.

The world knows the Canary Islands most for its seafront resorts. However, there is a whole new world of brewing volcanos, thriving pine forests, historic sites, lunar landscapes, and even Sahara-like dunes and sandy coves. The Canaries offer almost perfect year-round climate and temperatures which means you can enjoy the islands be it summer or winter. You can admire the subtropical vegetation in La Gomera National Park or riveting waterfalls in La Palma. Then, to contradict the lushness, visit lava fields in Lanzarote or flatlands of El Teide. It’s precisely for the diversity of landscape and possibility to comfortably predict weather which makes outdoor activities on the Canary Islands so varied and accessible to all. Hiking, scuba diving, kitesurfing, windsurfing, surfing, horseback riding, camel rides… you name it! Nevertheless, if you would instead just relax, choose one of the many golden-sand or dune-shaped beaches or even unwind in a local spa.
