Rioja Tour

Wine, Gastronomy and Royalty!

The Rioja region of Spain is of course well known for its fabulous wines, but did you know it’s a gastronomic haven too?

Staying in local accommodation, we will be based in Logroño, south of Bilbao which is the capital city of the region, on the pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela. Visit Bodegas Franco Espanoles, taste the wines that have graced the tables of Kings and Queens, tour this historic winery,  have a delicious lunch and wine tasting, and meet the wine maker behind this label.

Take in some of this region’s incredible history visit the Cathedral of Santa María de la Redonda with it’s twin baroque towers,  elaborate facade and an image attributed to Michelangelo. The Cubo del Revellín fort connects to remnants of the old city wall. Stroll through leafy Ebro Park and admire views of the River Ebro, its arched Stone Bridge and its 19th-century Iron Bridge. 

Other gastronomic delights await along the Calle Laurel, affectionately known as  the Elephant’s Walk, in the centre of Logroño, where you can visit over 150 tapas bars for a true authentic taste of Spain.

This trip is planned to start on 1st September 2022, as a 3 night tour. See flyer below for more details.

Pricing circa £1000 per person including flights and accomodation, plus activities.

Final itinerary and price will be determined closer to the departure date, and may be subject to change.

Why is Calle Laurel in Logrono in Rioja better known as the Elephant Walk?
