Spanish Delights - A Gastronomic Adventure

Group trip hosted by Rahul Devkar

About the trip

Embark on a complete gastronomical journey from the north to the south and explore four diverse regions of Spain – Catalonia, Basque Country, Madrid and Andalusia. Start from the cosmopolitan city of Barcelona, the capital of Catalonia, renowned for its art and architecture. Travel up north to explore the province of Girona, its magical coastline and fascinating medieval villages.

Next, discover the northern region of the Basque Country and explore its exquisite cuisine, strong character and stunningly green natural landscapes. 

We now explore the Spanish capital of Madrid, a modern city that has preserved its charm and character, and where each neighbourhood has its own expressive identity and style. Lastly, head to the city of Seville in the south of Spain and soak in the vibrant Andalusian spirit, rich with multicultural past, folklore and charm of the locals.

Savour the diverse flavours of Spanish cuisine while uncovering the unique culinary traditions of each region. This is going to be one delicious ride!
