NORTHERN SPAIN TRAVEL
Sophisticated Adventures for Intrepid Travelers.
“I am Stephanie, a Canadian who has been living in this region for over 20 years and hence have a unique perspective on my chosen home. When I first arrived over two decades ago, I found the beauty of northern Spain unsurpassable, its culture rich and diverse, its gastronomy out of this world and its active travel an adventure for everyone and on every level. I’ve teamed up with locals who have as much enthusiasm for their home as I do! Now, we wish to share that passion with the wide world by bringing to visitors personalized and mind-blowing year-round adventure experiences in the north of Spain”.
