New ways to explore northern Spain with Exodus

Adventure tour operator, Exodus, is launching two exciting new tours in northern Spain for 2014, allowing visitors to explore the lesser known corners of the region by bike or by train:

Cycling and wine in Rioja

This eight-day cycling trip through La Rioja starts in the city of Burgos, the historic capital of Castile and follows the Via Verde cycle route, an old railway track recently converted into a cycle path. The trip takes cyclists into the heart of the Demanda Mountain Range, travelling along the Najerilla River, through Ebro Valley, along parts of the Camino de Santiago and for an overnight stay at the UNESCO-listed Yuso Monastery. There will be a chance to stop off and sample the region’s wines at the century-old winery of Cune and the Marques de Riscal wine cellars, designed by Guggenheim Museum architect, Frank Gehry. 

The trip is available on specific dates from May until September 2014 and costs from £1,099 per person for eight days including flights, accommodation and breakfast.

Northern Spain Explorer

Northern Spain offers lush green countryside, architecturally impressive cities and a stunning coastline.

Exodus has a new 15-day tour of the region where visitors can start by discovering the delights of Madrid and nearby Toledo and Salamanca, before heading north by train to visit Santiago de Compostela and walking a section of the famous Camino de Santiago. Visitors will then travel to Asturias to the bustling city of Oviedo and the Cares Gorge Walk in the Picos de Europa, before entering the Basque Country and experiencing Bilbao and the foodie capital of San Sebastian. Finally the tour is Pamplona-bound, and guests will spend one final day in the cultural hub of Barcelona on the way back home again.

The first departure is on 17 May 2014 and the trip costs from £2,199 per person including flights, accommodation and some meals.
