Trip Highlights

•   Be surrounded by the culture of Catalan cooking (and by jamon hanging from the ceiling) in Barcelona’s many delis

•   Local, fresh produce is at the heart of Catalan food – get a chef’s insight into the best ingredients at Santa Caterina market

•   Logrono is filled with excellent taperias, each with their own speciality, and there’s little better than watching the master of mushrooms at Bar Soriano prepare hundreds of buttery, garlicky wild mushrooms for you to feast on during a tapas crawl

•   Sip a glass of famous Rioja in the unique surrounds of Laguardia – in the centuries old cellars beneath the medieval walled town

•   A walk in the epic Picos de National Park not only gives you stunning views of this Alpine-esque landscape, but also works off the delicious food and up a new appetite

Itinerary & Notes
Hola! Welcome to Spain. Barcelona's quirky character and fabulous Catalan cuisine mixes seamlessly with a groundbreaking art scene, Gothic architecture, superb dining and a non-stop nightlife, making it a city you won't soon forget. Your adventure begins with a welcome meeting at 6 pm today. You can arrive at any time during the day, as there are no activities planned until this important meeting. Please check with hotel reception or look on the reception noticeboard for where and when the meeting will take place. If you're going to be late, please inform the hotel reception. Have your insurance and next of kin details on hand as we'll be collecting them at this meeting. For those who arrive early, perhaps explore the streets of the old Gothic Quarter, check out the Picasso Museum, wander the tree-lined pedestrian boulevard of La Rambla, or take the funicular to the top of Montjuic or Tibidabo for panoramic views of Barcelona and the harbour. Celebrate the start of your Real Food Adventure by diving straight into the rhythm of Barcelona; sip a locally produced cava in a local bar then perhaps choose to continue on a tapas crawl through rustic Catalan dishes. Try traditional satisfying bites likes croquettes, fresh anchovy fillets lightly pickled in vinegar with salt and garlic or chargrilled aubergines with peppers and onions.
