Coastal splendour at its finest
From £525pp i

Brimming with rocky headlands, unspoiled coves and a collection of enchanting islands, the Costa Brava’s picturesque landscape is yearning to be explored.

This varied and extensive coastline is home to the vibrant city of Barcelona, attractive tourist resorts and traditional fishing villages. With as much charm as there is geographical insight – we’re talking about the rugged peaks of Montserrat, the volcanic landscape of La Garrotxa Natural Park and the unspoiled waters of Tordera River – it’s the perfect destination for younger students that’s not too unfamiliar.
