Spain has an endless number of impressive natural landscapes for you to enjoy a few days with your family while hiking, visiting villages and historical sites or sampling the local gastronomy.  


Visiting Granada means taking a trip back in time to the city's Andalusian past with World Heritage treasures including the Alhambra or the Albaicín, one of the city's most beautiful neighbourhoods.

What's more, Granada is just 32 km from Sierra Nevada and its ski resorts. During the winter season, play sport in a unique natural environment at one of the ski resorts that remains open for the longest in Spain.



Huesca is the perfect destination for nature lovers and for those looking for a quiet place to get away from the hustle and bustle and explore a province full of treasures waiting to be discovered.

Because the province of Huesca has one of Spain's most impressive natural landscapes: the Pyrenees of Aragón. Its main charms include the Sierra de Guara or the imposing Ordesa y Monte Perdido National Park. Prepare to be left speechless.



Often, the most difficult thing about booking holidays is making sure that the little ones don't get bored. That's why destinations with amusement parks nearby are always a great option for both adults and children alike.


The Catalan capital has a variety of plans waiting for you: culture, leisure, gastronomy, relaxation, and fun, of course! And, just a commuter-train ride away is the PortAventura World theme park.

The city of the River Turia is always an excellent option for a great getaway with the family.

Tarragona and the Costa Dorada

Another destination that is perfect for families is the Costa Dorada. In the south of Catalonia, it is home to beaches boasting fine sand and calm waters, nestled in a beautiful natural habitat.
