    ASURA is Traveling to Spain and Portugal

    From a Roman colony and centuries of Moorish rule to the great explorers of the Age of Discovery, the Iberian Peninsula is home to extraordinary beauty and untold remnants of a tumultuous past. You will chart your own course for discovery in theses ancient lands while staying in intimate Portuguese pousadas and Spanish paradores, restored historic inns – from castles and convents to manor homes and monasteries – that evoke the glory of an earlier era. You’ll also dine with a Spanish family in their home, sip Portuguese wine at an 18th century wine estate, and learn about the history of bullfighting at a ranch in Ronda, a medieval town perched high above a plunging gorge. Discover royal cities, hilltop citadels, and ancient olive groves on a journey deep into the lands of conquerors and conquistadores.

    This trip is designed for people who want a different kind of travel experience. It emphasizes active exploration and close cultural contact. We seek out unusual experiences, in out-of-the-way places where ordinary tours often don’t go. To get the most of this trip, you should have a healthy sense of curiosity, an adventurous spirit, and a flexible attitude about the unpredictable nature of travel.

    An optional pre-trip (May 8 – 13, 2019) to Porto: Northern Portugal’s Romanesque Gem is available. From the time of the Romans and Celts, Northern Portugal has been a hotbed of rich culture and robust vintages. Discover the role of vineyards in Porto’s history during visits to a family farm and a wine cellar, stroll the lanes of the Ribeira neighborhood and get to know this ancient gem from many angles.

    This trip is limited to the first 16 travelers to sign up. The pre-trip is limited to the first eight. Also, by reserving your spot now you can take advantage of the best buy plan and save up to 6% off the cost of your adventure.

    This tour is run by Overseas Adventure Travel. ASURA has used this agency for a number of its international travel trips and the members have always been very happy with the small groups and accommodations.
