The Rias Baixas: only in Galicia

The Rias Gallegas are something unique in Galicia (and Spain) geography. Sea came into the land and it created these small rivers over the coastline. This landscape is absolutely incredible and you will never forget the views. Thanks to the Rías, the local shellfish has a particular and delicious flavour. Yo will be able to taste it and also enjoy the unique experience of collecting them in the company of local experts and fishermen. Off course, you will eat what you get served with the typical Albariño wine. Sounds that good? Well, there's more. We will also make some cultural routes by cities as Vigo (a capital port during the exploration of America) or Santiago de Compostela, where thousands of pilgrims arrive each year following the famous Way of St. James. Galicia is as unique as your holidays will be if you join us :)
