More Information

DAY 1 Barcelona, Spain

Bienvenidos to the city of art nouveau, alluring accents and (most importantly) tapas. Meet and greet your fellow travellers before getting your bearings on a guided tour of bustling Barça, ticking off the likes of the Sagrada Família, the Columbus Monument and Las Ramblas. Then: fuel up for the notorious nightlife with a feast of local cuisine.


DAY 2 Barcelona to Valencia

You've got a whole morning to spend in Barcelona, so jump at the chance to catch up on anything you might have missed yesterday. Later, we'll head to Valencia - with a pit stop at the Cava caves along the way. Lose yourself down the dark, narrow tunnels and spiralling staircases of these mazy structures.


DAY 3 Valencia

We’ve cleared your schedule so you can spend a whole day exploring the birthplace of paella (and obviously dig into copious amounts of the local dish). Check out the Old Quarter for some serious throwback charm or just, you know, hit the beach. We won’t judge. Later, there’s an optional pub crawl to get involved in, so brace your beer-swilling arm.


DAY 4 Valencia to Granada

Wake up to a scenic drive to Granada, the last Moorish city in Spain to fall to the Christians. Ready to discover why this is the hottest destination in Andalusia?


DAY 5 Granada

First things first: take in the impressive Moorish architecture in the Albaycín district, which is set against the backdrop of the Sierra Nevada mountains. Cue an endless stream of Instagram-worthy pics! Treat yourself to some local cuisine for dinner. Tip: most places serve free tapas with your beverage. Win!


DAY 6 Granada to Asilah, Morocco

Next up: the whitewashed wonder that is the seaside town of Asilah. This place oozes Greek island village vibes, and will no doubt impress with its burgeoning art scene and drool-worthy selection of tapas restaurants.


DAY 7 Asilah to Fes

Today you'll discover why the oldest and largest medieval city in the world is better known for its food. Work up an appetite on our drive through the Moroccan landscape – we're going local for dinner again tonight. In other words: tagine.


DAY 8 Fes

Tick off the Royal Palace, the Jewish neighbourhood, the UNESCO-listed medina and a leather tannery on a walking tour with a local guide. Then hunt down a hammam and lose yourself in a labyrinth of souks and cobblestone streets. Bring your bargaining pants and embrace the centuries-old tradition of paying what you want for things, not what you're told they cost. Afterwards, relax with some mint tea and congratulate yourself on your haggling prowess.


DAY 9 Fes

Spend the day checking out the Roman ruins of Volubilis, once the ruling centre of the Roman province of Mauritania. The ancient site dates back to 40 AD, which explains why the ville nouvelle, or 'new city' neighborhood of Fes bears its name – despite being 700 years old. Also on today’s agenda: a visit to the World Heritage-listed city of Meknes.


DAY 10 Fes to Seville, Spain

Leave the tagines for paella – we’re off to Seville! Seville was founded 3,000 years ago by Hercules, and Sevillanos are extremely proud of their city. Lawrence of Arabia, Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones, Kingdom of Heaven and season five of Games of Thrones were all filmed or partly filmed here. When you look as good as Seville it's hard not to show off.


DAY 11 Seville

What will you do on your free day in Seville? Our suggestion: visit the Real Alcázar. This palace is the most stunning example of Mudéjar architecture found on the Iberian Peninsula. If you’ve got time, you could also take a wander around the Plaza de España and the Cathedral of Seville. Your date tonight: an optional hot and spicy flamenco show.


DAY 12 Seville to Lisbon, Portugal

Flirt with Spain's girl next door and discover why Lisbon is basically the San Francisco of Europe. Find (or lose) your bearings on a guided tour of the undulating capital and let the Jeronimos Monastery and the World Heritage-listed Belem Tower feed your daily dose of history. A local meal will sustain a night of dancing in Bairro Alto. Oi!


DAY 13 Lisbon

Time to get friendly with Portugal’s capital city on foot. Check out the medieval maze that is Alfama, the oldest neighbourhood in Lisbon, or venture up to São Jorge Castle for epic views and a history lesson on Moorish culture. Afterwards, wind down in the Botanical Gardens. Did you know that this place was built by a Portuguese king who wanted one of every type of plant in the world? You do now! Sprawl out, have a picnic and get in touch with nature.


DAY 14 Lisbon

Today we say goodbye. Time for the next adventure? We’ll be seeing you around.
