Cantabria & Bilbao School Trips

Prices from: £245 (Based on 4 Days, 3 Nights)

Cantabria is often overlooked as a school trips destination, however this small region in northern Spain is a superb base whether you choose to travel by coach or air.

The region boasts several picturesque towns and villages, spread along the coast, and the region has a real sense of heritage and culture. The small towns provide a nice contrast to the region’s largest city – Santander which is well worthy of a visit. Add to this the nearby Bilbao, and the famous Guggenheim Museum with the it’s amazing architecture and equally amazing exhibits including Picasso. Cantarbria is a great school trip destination for languages, art, history and cultural trips.
