What is the Spain you see when you close your eyes? Arches and crescents, corridors and steeples, a land of everlasting sun and sand?
It exists, to be sure, in puzzle pieces scattered across the Iberian Peninsula. But that is not the Spain you are about to be introduced to.
When Eat Northern Spain local guides close their eyes they see a land of arresting beauty, of snaking rivers pink with running salmon, mountain lakes like water bowls for wild horses, towering peaks that tumble into the ocean.
Eat Northern Spain was born in Northern Spain, where food is life.
Food is their way to translate local culture, and they’ve welcomed new friends and familiar faces to share it with them since they were founded in in 2009. They strive to bring an unforgettable experience to visitors who want to immerse themselves in local food culture during their culinary holidays.
Your first taste of txakoli, the sight of a bar filled with tapas, the smell of fresh olive oil being pressed, the feel of thinly sliced jamón ibérico between your fingers... your senses are sharper at the source. They believe travel should be unique and personal, but most of all, it should be authentic.
Explore a culture through its food and drink, its producers and chefs and the love and care they put into all their creations.
What makes Eat Northern Spain so special? Well, some people go on holiday simply for sunshine and a sandy beach and are quite happy to eat their usual meal from home every night.
Sunshine and beaches are lovely, but perhaps (and hopefully) you’re more interesting in sampling the local cuisine of the country you’re visiting.
The only problem is: how can you do this when you don’t know the area or speak the language?
The truth is, you could book yourself on a group tour. It will probably be cheaper... but it will almost certainly involve sweaty minibuses full of strangers, long waiting times, visiting places you’re not interested in, substandard food (or not enough food!), and exhaustingly long days.
Eat Northern Spain changes that! They create private, bespoke, escorted holidays tailored to your interests.
