Choose Your Trip Type

You can enjoy city excursions, beach holidays and even a hiking or camping trip in Spain.

The country is much larger than many people give it credit for and there is much to do inland as well as along the coast.

A big factor in deciding what kind of trip you want is accommodation.

Are you craving a little luxury, or do you want to rough it?

If you’re after something modern, a city break might be the trip for you.

Unless you’re happy to stay in a tent, the kinds of accommodation available, especially if you have a larger family, can help narrow down where to go.

If you want a stress-free family holiday, you don’t want separate hotel rooms.

You want everyone in one place, which means that for many families, booking a villa is the way to go.

Villa holidays in Spain are always cheaper than people think, especially when you consider that most families need two or more hotel rooms to accommodate everyone.

With a villa, you combine these costs, can make meals at home and have somewhere to relax.

Choose Your Region

There are many regions in the country, each with its own history, culture and interests.

Unless you’re road-tripping through the entire country, you’ll want to want to stick to one region and explore it more in-depth.

Three of the best for families are Andalucía, Aragon and Catalonia.


Andalucía is the region that contains Costa del Sol, Costa de Almería and Costa Tropical, among others.

It is the most popular of the regions for tourists simply for its stunning coastline and many beaches.

You will also find golf resorts, thriving coastal towns and sleepy villas perfect for families.


For outdoor adventures, you’ll want to head to Aragon.

Close to the Aragonese Pyrenees, this is the go-to destination for skiing, hiking and camping.

It is ideal for families who are adventurous and want to head out into a national park that isn’t as popular as parks in other countries, such as Switzerland.


Catalonia is a fiercely independent region that is different from the rest of Spain – and for a reason.

Barcelona, its capital, stands apart as one of the most beautiful cities in the world thanks to the work of Antoni Gaudí.

With great beaches, better cities and lots to do, it is a perfect destination for the whole family.

Book Your Adventure

Once you have chosen your region, it’s time to get the rest of the planning underway.
