School Language Trips to Cantabria

For coastal views, rural countryside and nearby city visits

Rural Spain at its finest
From £479pp i

Characterised by sleepy villages, majestic mountain ranges and rugged coastal cliffs, Cantabria tells a different story of Spain. Nestled in lush valleys and rural countryside, you can’t help but fall into the rhythms of stripped-back Spain.

Outdoorsy types will be in their element on a school Spanish trip to Cantabria; exploring national parks and leafy woodlands by day and tucking into hearty stews by night. It’s the perfect option for younger groups who want to base themselves away from the hustle and bustle of city life, but still want to venture out on big city day trips to Santander and Bilbao.

FAQs about this tour

Find the answers to some of our most frequently asked questions.

  • Can I talk to Rayburn Tours whilst out on tour?

    Yes, a 24-hour emergency phone number will be provided in your final documents pack and one of our experienced members of staff will be happy to help with any problems you have whilst out on tour.

  • What would happen if our flights are delayed or cancelled?

    In the event that your flights are cancelled or delayed by the airline, then the airline will offer us an alternative flight for your group and payment under the delayed departure section of your insurance would be applicable. EU airlines and carriers are subject to the EU Directive regulation 216/2004. Insurance policies do cover delayed flights and in the first instance party leaders would need to call the insurance company for further details.

    For groups travelling with our insurance (provided by Endsleigh Insurance Services Ltd) we would be able to call on your behalf. Delayed cover through Endsleigh Insurance Services Ltd entitles each person to claim up to £100, dependent on the length of delay, which can then be used to offset any additional expenses that may have been incurred.

    We will offer your group continued support via our 24-hour emergency phone; we will liaise with our contacts at the relevant airline and accommodation centres, if necessary, and continue to communicate with you throughout until your flight departs.

  • Is all of your accommodation audited in advance?

    Yes, all of our accommodation is audited prior to us offering it to a group. The criterion of these audits is governed by the School Travel Forum (STF). It is important to remember that each country is governed by their own standards and laws and these may differ from UK law. However, we require our accommodation to meet our standards as a minimum. We work with the hotels and agents to endeavour to ensure that our standards are met.

  • Is insurance included with my trip?

    Yes, insurance will be included in your trip quotation as standard unless it is requested not to be. Make sure you check the list of inclusions in your quotation and/or confirmation.
