The company’s Spain vacations take travelers to delve into this lively country with hands-on, cross-cultural activities and tours that celebrate each area’s distinctive culture and rich heritage – all with the same destination expertise and insight, value, and quality to which Intrepid Vacations’ customers have become accustomed.
“Just in time for summer vacation planning, our new Spain travel packages further cater to our customers who wish to see the world in a more experiential and insightful way…and truly ‘live’ the places they travel to during their vacations,” said Brian John, President and CEO of Intrepid Vacations. “We are pleased to present these exciting trips to Spain to bring travelers more choices in this fascinating region of the world.”
Travelers can head to Granada in June and celebrate the International Festival of Music and Dance or visit Cordoba in July for the "Festival de Cordoba," an International guitar festival that takes place in the gardens of the Alcazar – a must see for flamenco lovers. August is a perfect time to experience Valencia during La Tomatina, the world's largest fun-filled tomato war.
