Spain – A Healthy European Destination

Paella and tapas, lively fiestas, siestas, sundrenched beaches, and a distinctive combination of art and history paint the iconic portrait of Spain.

Located on the southwest shore of Europe and surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean on the western side and the Mediterranean on the southern side, every angle of Spain promises an experience that is uniquely yours.

Madrid, Spain’s capital and largest city, is credited for its iconic nightlife, but also promises stunning architecture and many must see attractions like the Royal Palace and the San Miguel Market.

San Sebastian is home to some of the most popular beaches in Europe including Playa de la Concha and La Playa de Ondarreta. San Sebastian is also rich with historical and culinary tradition found within The Old Town.

Barcelona is rightfully one of the country’s most popular travel destinations. There are endless ways to spend your time including sunbathing on Barceloneta, stroll down the tree-lined avenue of La Rambla, or marvel at the architecture of Casa Batllo.

The historically abundant city of Toledo is unlike any other location in Spain. It served as the capital until the 16th century and here you can find art and architecture dating back to the Roman Empire.

For style, yachts, polo and championship golf, the elegant alcove of Sotogrande in Southern Spain, just 20 minutes from Gibraltar is well worth a visit.

The Northern Lights can be seen in multiple locations, but one of the best in Europe, is in Svalbard, Norway. Svalbard is a collection of islands in the Arctic Ocean, located between Europe and the North Pole. In this location, it is said to get the best view of the Northern Lights.

Along with activity in the sky, on the ground there are a host of memorable experiences in the Arctic Wilderness, ranging from a polar night safari and dogsledding. Such arctic experiences are recommended between November and February. And for adding something unique, stay in a glass igloo in Finland Hotel Kaksluttanen, or The Blue Lagoon in Reykjavik in Iceland or enjoy the sky show from an Arctic Cruise
