Exploring the Landscapes of España Verde

FREE On Board Spend

No-Fly Cruise

Uncover the lush, mountainous side to Spain as we sail along its northern shores. Delight in the awe-inspiring beauty of the Cantabrian Mountains, the limestone cliffs and deep valleys of Urkiola Natural Park, and the pristine Gorbeia Natural Park. Immerse yourself in diverse Spanish lifestyles; Cantabria offers mountain hikes and the spirited Jota Montañesa dance, while the Basque Country is known for its Rioja, pintxos, bertsolaritza (improvised poetry), and the traditional Basque pelota ball game.
