      It will be a dynamic and fun experience, where you will learn to understand your own sense of smell, face aroma quizzes and test your overall skill with blind tastings.

      Stop At: Otanes, Otanes, Cantabria

      Food pairing is our specialty, so get ready to taste gildas, cod, Iberian ham, local cheeses, and the award winning ‘txuleta steak’. The txuleta is probably one of the finest steaks in the world, bearing its own unique characteristics.

      (It has been compared to the famous wagyu meat of Japan, but our Japanese clients have so far said that our txuelta is even better! Let’s see if you agree).​

      All food will be prepared in a traditional way, cooked over burning hot coals and in our wood-fired ovens. Along the way, we will share our cooking secrets and techniques.

      Duration: 2 hours

      Stop At: Castro Urdiales, Castro Urdiales, Cantabria

      After the cooking and dining, we will visit the beautiful fishing village of Castro Urdiales, located on the border of Cantabria and Basque Country. Fishing lies at the heart of this village and its setting, local food and people, are all a perfect representation of life at sea.

      In addition to its fishing routes, the village has a rich history. It’s home to a medieval cathedral, an old lighthouse and stone bridge, which arches over a dramatic sea-filled natural pool.

      We'll enjoy a walking tour around its small cobbled streets and the beautiful harbour, from where you can admire stunning sea and the mountain views. You will soon see why this is considered as one of the most beautiful villages in Spain.
