Spain & Portugal (2022)

Our first luxury tour in Spain & Portugal was very well received – slightly more luxury and slightly less driving per day was popular – so we’ve made it more accessible to more people by making it shorter and reducing the price accordingly.

It’s still first and foremost about the roads and the driving… but there’s more emphasis on the word “holiday” too.

Wednesday – Make sure you’re at the Plymouth ferry terminal by 14:00 as the boat leaves at 15:45 and it won’t wait for you!

Thursday – When you arrive in Spain you’ll drive off the boat and be guided by your tour managers (who have already provided you with a satnav and walkie talkie) to our first hotel…

Friday – We’ll head for the extremadura, with some easy driving and some proper fun along the way.

Saturday – We’ll spend the day today in Portugal, and in fact we’ll spend the night in Portugal too. But first, we’ll go exploring in the Serra da Estrela national park, recently visited by our friend Henry Catchpole at Carfection Films:

Once we’ve played in the mountains we’ll head north to our hotel, which sits atop the thermal spa at Longroiva:

Sunday – Across the border and back into Spain, a quick stop for coffee and chocolates and then up and over “Dusty Mountain”, and then up to Ponferrada for a little more luxury in our next overnight stop.

Monday – Final day of “proper” driving, ending just an hour’s drive from the boat, so we don’t have to get up too early tomorrow. Our last night on dry land means we’re staying at a thermal spa hotel – bring your swimming costume… and a swimming hat!

Tuesday – We leave our last hotel to head for the boat at Bilbao, just an hour away. What a week!

Wednesday – Rest and relaxation aboard the ship home to the UK. Plenty of time to discuss the week’s events with your fellow tourers and get over the hangover from last night’s party, before the drive home and a night in your own bed. We arrive in Portsmouth late on Wednesday evening.
