  • San Sebastian

    The Kursaal Convention Center’s glowing cubes and Basque Culinary Center’s elongated terraces have become symbols of contemporary San Sebastian, but traditional Belle Époch and Baroque were certainly never abandoned. Begin your San Sebastian journey in the atmospheric Old City – the capital of Pais Vasco’s Gipuzkoa Province, it is a vibrant center of Basque culture and history.

  • Lisbon - Snapshots of Lisbon

    Description

    This unique overview of this UNESCO Awarded city is created for disembarking guests. This introduction provides a look at the highlights of Portugal’s charming capital. As you head to the oldest part of the city, your licensed guide will point out some of the major sights that can be enjoyed from the motor coach: The Alfama Quarter: The layout of this ancient quarter will intrigue you with its ambiance, maze of alleyways and narrow, cobbled streets lined by closely packed houses, many of Moorish design. Continue with your drive through the city center to Alto do Parque Belvedere for a photo stop and to enjoy the magnificent view over the city. 25 April Bridge and Christ the King Statue: From the viewpoint depart across the beautiful 25th April Bridge, twin of San Francisco’s Golden Gate, and constructed by the same company. Originally named the Ponte Salazar after the Portuguese dictator Antonio Salazar, it was renamed in 1974 in honor of the date of the Carnation revolution. Once across the span, you will pause for photos at the base of the Monument Chris the King, a 361-foot high statue portraying the sacred heart. It was inspired by the Christ the Redeemer statue overlooking Rio de Janeiro.

  • Saint-Jean-de-Luz - Fashionable Biarritz & The Basque Coast

    Description

    Saint-Jean-de-Luz, a small fishing village on the Basque coast is known for its architecture, sandy bay, the quality of the light and the cuisine.This beautiful south-west corner of France became renowned in the mid-1800's when Empress Eugenie, the wife of the emperor Napoleon III, built a palace on the beach at Biarritz. (now the HU´tel du Palais). European royalty such as Queen Victoria, Edward VII, and Alfonso XIII of Spain were frequent visitors. Our tour starts with a guided walking tour of Saint-Jean-de-Luz through the historic town and visiting the St Jean Baptiste church. Our coach will then take us the 10 miles up the coast to Biarritz, the "Queen of resorts and the resort of Kings" including the lighthouse, located on the northern tip of the town with its panoramic view followed by the "Grande Plage", the main beach in town, where surfers from all over the world come to ride the waves. The Hotel du Palais with its facade overhanging the beach, revives the idle and frivolous period of the 20's. Built in 1855, as a summer house for the Imperial couple, the building owes its E shape to the name of the Empress Eugenie. Our next stop is the cozy fishing port nested in the rocks. After the fishing port, it's off to the Rock of the Virgin, which is reached by an imposing bridge which was constructed by Gustave Eiffel, the same architect who, of course, designed the famous Eiffel Tower in Paris. We conclude our oceanfront tour of Biarritz with the ancient whaling port, whaling having been an integral part of the history of the town, where we will have some free time to browse. We return to St.-Jean-de-Luz through Bidart and Guethary, typical villages with their "fronton" where the basques play the "pelota", their traditional sport.

  • Santander - Bilbao & The Guggenheim Museum

    Description

    Bilbao, the industrial and financial capital of the Basque Country, is situated between two ranges of hills on both sides of the River Nervion. The iron ore mines near the city were discovered by the Romans, who paved the way for the numerous foundries later built on both banks of the river. Today, the city is undergoing a spectacular transformation. In the quarter of Abandoibarra, you will find the famous Guggenheim Museum designed by North American architect Frank O. Gehry. This love-it-or-hate-it architectural environment represents some of the most groundbreaking architecture to have come out of the 20th century. You will explore the impressive permanent and temporary exhibits on a guided visit inside and outside of the museum, followed by some free time for your own exploring. On leaving the Museum, you take a short drive down to the Old Quarter located on the right bank of the river Nervion, an area which has undergone huge reconstruction following a devastating flood in 1983 and where many of the streets are now pedestrian. Here you will view the 14th-century Gothic cathedral, the Arriaga Theatre, the Plaza Nueva and the Bilbao Ria, which separates the old and the new city. In Basque cities, it is typical for the locals to make an entire lunch or dinner out of the surprising and delicious miniature cuisine known as "pintxos' (Basque equivalent for "tapas"), a dining experience like no other. The Basque pintxos are reputed to be the best in Spain, with a wide variety from traditional grilled wild mushrooms, stuffed spicy peppers, cured ham or more avant-garde creations. You and your fellow SeaDream friends will lunch in a traditional restaurant on the local "tapas" complimented by local wines. After lunch there will be a little free time to browse and shop at your leisure in the Old Quarter among chic boutiques, perfume stores and cafes before our return to the yacht in Santander.

  • Santander - Santander & Spain's Most Charming Village

    Description

    The first part of your SeaDream Land Adventure will take you to Santillana del Mar, situated 25 miles from Santander. Strangely enough, it is not "del Mar" but several miles inland. It must be one of the most interesting villages in Spain from an architectural and historical point of view. It's one of the most beautifully preserved and very easy to walk and admire. The fortified house of Borja, the House of the Eagle, Merinos Tower and the College-church with its cloister, all this make Santillana one of the most charming villages in the whole country. If you know of a more charming one, we would love to hear about it ! Once the walking adventure has finished, you will have some drinks and snacks at the village's Parador (state historic hotel). Returning to Santander, you will enjoy a panoramic overview of this beautiful town, passing the Gothic Cathedral, Magdalena Palace, Beach of el Sardinero and the magnificent building of the Bank of Santander. The city owes its existence to the excellent harbor of the Bay of Santander. Santander was an important port for Castile in the later Middle Ages, and also for trade with the New World. It officially became a city in 1755.

  • Gijon (Oviedo), Asturias - Discover Asturias' Ancient Capital

    Description

    Oviedo, a 30 minute drive from the port of Gijon, is the capital of the ancient Principality of Asturias. Established in the 8th century, it bravely resisted the Arab invasion of Spain and kept the flame of Christianity alive in the Iberian peninsula. The palaces and churches in the surroundings of Oviedo provide eminent testimony to the civilization of the small Christian Kingdom of Asturias. On arrival we will start our exploration of the highlights of the city by bus. Much of the center of the old town is a pedestrian quarter and we will visit on foot the Cathedral of "San Salvador". The cathedral is a unique example of different architectural styles, from Pre-Romanesque to Baroque. Founded in 781, most of the present structure dates from the 1380's. In the surroundings of the Cathedral, we visit other highlights of the old town including the town hall and market and have some free time to browse. After our visit we will drive back to Gijon to visit a Llagar, a cider factory, where we will be able to sample some of the local cuisine of this unique region of Spain, enhanced by the local cider poured from on high into your glass in the traditional manner. A short panoramic drive through the city of Gijon will take us back to the yacht at the dock.

  • Vigo (Bayona), Galicia - Bayona – Sights, Tastes & Wines of Galicia

    Description

    Bayona (also spelled Baiona) is a beautifully situated little port town which is now a popular seaside resort. It is also a fishing village which has managed to maintain its ancient appearance, with its medieval old quarter of narrow streets and stone building. In addition to its excellent beaches and old quarter, Bayona has a magnificent 16th-century fortress overlooking the town which has been converted into a 4 star Parador. Bayona claimed its place in history when it became the first place in the Old World to learn of the discovery of America from one of Columbus' returning caravels, La Pinta, which anchored in the tiny bay on April 1st, 1493. Starting from Vigo, your motor coach will take you up Monte Castro for a view of the city and harbor before proceeding to Bayona. In Bayona, your adventure will start with a guided walking orientation of the old quarter and some time to browse on your own. You will then be guided up the walls of the Monte Real castle to the Parador where you have the opportunity to taste local wines of Galicia accompanied by the local variety of tapas. The region's close proximity to Portugal and virtual isolation from the rest of Spain has had a marked influence on the style of wines from Galicia with many of them being closer in style to Portuguese wines. After a relaxing time at the Parador, the motor coach will take you back to Vigo and the yacht.

  • San Sebastian - San Sebastian & Hondarribia

    Description

    You and your fellow guests will enjoy two amazing towns on this unique land adventure. You will first start with Hondarribia, A village near the French border. This delightful town is divided into two parts--the upper town is the medieval district where small alleyways contain old houses with carved eaves and wonderful balconies; the lower section is the fishermen's quarter. A brief walking orientation in the Old Town will take you to the historic Parador, once a medieval defense tower and now an atmosphere-laden hotel. Now it is time to explore San Sebastian, The most glamorous city in the Basque Country! Very few cities have earned such lavish titles as San Sebastian. 'The Beautiful', 'Pearl of the Sea' and 'Incomparable'. A visit to this charming Belle Epoque resort built around a crescent-shaped bay will show you why it has been admired by so many for so long. Its attractive beaches and the charming architecture has been attracting visitors from all over the world since the middle of the 19th century. It still maintains all of the splendor from when it was a royal summer destination. Before you get confused, it is a good idea to explain that Donostia is Basque for San Sebastian. Although the Basque language is ancient, Donostia is less so. Sancho el Mayor (called Sancho el Fuerte - Sancho the Strong) founded the city of San Sebastian around 1180 in what is today the Parte Vieja (historical quarter). The city's unique geographical situation, an isthmus joining the city center with Monte Urgull (Mount Urgull), the Bahía de la Concha (Shell Bay) and the outlet of the Río Urumea (Urumea River), made it ideal as a military stronghold with a port. Towards the end of the 19th century, with the royal court of Madrid taking up summer residence in Donostia at the Palacio de Miramar (Miramar Palace), the city became a popular tourist destination and spa resort.
