The Nomadic Network Spain Tour

October 7 - October 19, 2022

Spain is a country that moves slowly and runs late. The land of the siesta, it’s a place for foodies and night owls, history buffs, religious pilgrims, and anyone not in a rush but wants to experience a slow, in-the-moment lifestyle. On this tour, you’ll get to experience the best of Spain.

Famed as a foodie mecca bursting with stunning architecture — including numerous works by Gaudi — Spain is a huge, diverse country offering travelers a plethora of iconic sights, tasty dishes, beautiful weather, and an unrivaled nightlife.

Spain moves at its own pace: here the meals run long and late and the wine and conversation are ever-flowing. No one is in a rush. Friends, family, and conversation rule the day. It’s a land meant to be lived and traveled slowly.

On this tour, we’ll wander the food markets of Madrid and Barcelona, explore the overlooked city of Girona, enjoy history in Seville, and gaze at the Islamic Alhambra in the Moorish-influenced city of Granada.

Whether you’re a foodie, history buff, sangria lover, or just always wanted to visit Spain, this tour will have something for you. It’s a tour for people looking to see more than just the famous sites of Spain. With our expert guides, we unravel the country’s history, culture, and traditions for you. You’ll meet locals, get off the beaten path, and make lasting memories as you explore one of Europe’s most enticing destinations.

Our amazing researcher, Sam, will also be on this tour leading you around! She spent three lives living in Spain and really knows the country!
