During the summer time, Spain is at its best. Thanks to its dominant Mediterranean climate, the temperatures are high and the rain percentages very low. The statistics say it all: in 2017, the average rainfall in the Nordic countries was four times as much as in certain parts of Spain!
One of the many advantages of the pleasant Spanish climate is that it is perfect for spending time outdoors. Strolling along the beach on a sunny day while enjoying the sea breeze sounds very tempting, but how about something different, more adventurous, more memorable? In this newsletter we will give you the best insider tips for outdoor activities in Spain.
Rowing in Lekeitio
The town of Lekeitio in the Bay of Biscay is a truly magical place where you will find astonishing Gothic architecture, a colourful fishing village and wide beaches. Two of those beaches look out onto the island of San Nicolás, a green oasis in the middle of the blue sea that can be reached on foot at low tide.
Rowing races, using boats called traineras, are one of the most popular Basque sports since they began in the late nineteenth century. The teams consist of 13 members and a cox who steers the boat. Enjoy one of our favourite sports and participate in a Rowing Challenge with the help of our skilled instructors.
Paddle surf on the Guadalquivir river
The Guadalquivir river in the south of Spain is one of the longest rivers of the country. It crosses two important cities, Córdoba and Seville, and offers great possibilities for aquatic sports and other water-related activities.
Paddle surf, or stand up paddle, is a fun way of exploring the beautiful Andalusian capital from a different point of view. Standing up on a special surf board, you use a paddle to navigate the river. To add some variety to this adventurous activity, we invite you to try out stand up paddle yoga or fitness, with the help and guidance of professional instructors.
Olive oil experience
Two passionate biologists (Guillermo & Laura) left Madrid a few years ago to literally return to their roots and revive the ancient olive grove of Guillermo’s great-great-grandfather. They will explain you everything you want to know about the origin of the olive tree in Spain and the traditional (and ecological) way of producing olive oil. In the shade of an olive tree you will enjoy a tasting analysing the olive oil with the five senses and to finish… you will enjoy a traditional tapas meal of local products in the olive grove, combined with their self-made olive oil and local wine!
