Destination

Spain is nothing if not enthusiastic about sport, with football and basketball all but national obsessions.

There are also plenty of opportunities to get out and enjoy the country’s stunning outdoors, or submerge yourself in the culture of the different regions of Spain.

Football is the most popular spectator and participant sport in Spain. However, hockey, tennis, netball and swimming are also played by Spanish schools making this, together with the warm climate, picturesque landscape and cultural opportunities; an excellent place to visit on the UK’s doorstep.

BEST TIME TO TOUR:

April, May, June, September, and October are very good for travel. If you want to visit cities in northern Spain near the Atlantic, such as San Sebastian, Oviedo, and Santiago de Compostela and the rest of Galicia, the months of July and August are the best. Barcelona, the Costa Brava, Valencia, and the Balearic Islands are best from May to September. The Costa del Sol and Almeria are the best places to visit during winter because they are the warmest.
