Enjoy a touring holiday in Northern Spain and discover a land of contrasts. From beaches to mountains this lovely part of Spain encompassing Cantabria and eastern Asturias is a treasure trove of landscapes full of winding scenic roads, great cities and untouched villages, haute-cuisine and superb local fare, all criss-crossed by the ancient Camino de Santiago, Europe’s most important pilgrim way.


The Picos de Europa on the borders of Asturias, Cantabria and Castilla y León, is probably the most stunning National Park in Spain, or even Europe. The contrasts within these 300 square miles of spectacular natural beauty that link Cantabria and Asturias are amazing. Small mountain villages are tucked away in the higher slopes almost completely isolated. Deep gorges that plunge vertically down into deep river valleys, sparkling lakes, and magical forests make this an adventure playground just begging to be explored.

La Rioja is a beautiful wine region in Northern Spain characterized by its scenic patchwork of vineyard covered hills, medieval villages, The flagship grape of Rioja is the noble Tempranillo, used to create delicious reds and blended with other regional grapes like Mazuelo, Garnacha Tinta, and Graciano.


"A great trip! Some of the mountain drives were terrific with fabulous views. The Parador hotels were fanastic, beautiful and interesting and as in a previous Scenic Car tour holiday we experienced. We started as a group of strangers, for us at least, and by the time we finished we had some great new friends." We look forward to the our next tour.

Regards Derek

Santillana del Mar is situated on the northern route of the Pilgrim's Road to Santiago de Compostela, Santillana del Mar is a beautiful medieval town developed around the collegiate church of Santa María. Its various defence towers and palaces make Santillana one of the most important historical areas of Cantabria.

Cangas de Onis is a great base for exploring the Picos de Europa. The main sight at Cangas de Onis is the 'Roman' bridge with the Picos de Europa as its backdrop. The main square is a good place to sit and enjoy a drink or a meal and it has a pleasant atmosphere.
