Athens

Athens is one of the world's oldest cities, with its recorded history spanning around 3400 years! Classical Athens was a powerful city-state, a centre for the arts, learning and philosophy, home of Plato's Academy and Aristotle's Lyceum, and the birthplace of democracy and modern thought. History is engrained in everything you see and feel when walking around Athens. Experiencing this amazing city to begin our trip is made all the better by the passionate Greek people and their incredible cuisine!

 
Beaches Beyond Beautiful
Greece
Santorini

The island of Santorini used to be a massive volcano until it erupted in one of the largest tectonic events in history. Eventually most of the volcano sunk into the sea leaving only the eastern rim as a half moon crescent-shaped relic of the ancient volcano. The east coast of the island gently slopes into the sea and the west coast is entirely made up of dramatic cliffs dotted with little towns clinging to the side. Shimmering volcanic black sand beaches around the island add to its beauty and offer great places to relax during the day. But simply exploring this incredible island, visiting the beautiful towns and finding a nice place to enjoy arguably the best sunset in the world is what makes Santorini so memorable!

 
Beaches Beyond Beautiful
Greece
Ios

Ios is a beautiful bohemian island plopped right in the deep blue of the Mediterranean with a cool alternative culture and deep history. In the 1960s Ios became a new waypoint for hippies from all around the world and this is part of the reason why it’s still considered to be the original party island in Greece, and it certainly lives up to its reputation! Today Ios is a stellar mix of day time chilling and night time partying, as exploring the island by bike or ATV or partaking in the various wicked water sports is just as fun as dancing the night away at one of the many chic bars or going to see a concert at the Odysseas Elytis Theatre where there are often festivals going on. So no matter what you're into, Ios is a place to have fun and lots of it!

Besides its man-made wonders, Crete boasts a natural beauty of palm tree forests and soaring mountain ranges that cut along the coast and drop down into monumental gorges that reach right out to the sea. When we visit Crete on our trip, we spend an entire day exploring the unforgettable sights on the island before retiring to the lazy beach town of Plakias that is strategically situated along a very long beach and near the hiking trails that lead through the mountains to ancient monasteries. The epic-ness of Crete has been fabled for all of history and continues to be an almost mythical destination to experience!

Epic Experiences you will have on this adventure

Tour the Sagrada Familia

The Sagrada Familia is perhaps Barcelona’s most recognizable monument. A large Roman Catholic Church designed by famed Spanish architect Antoni Gaudí, it has been under construction since 1882. Although currently still incomplete, it is nonetheless a UNESCO World Heritage Sight. The incredible detail found in the church along with its avant-garde design combining Gothic and curvilinear Art Nouveau forms makes it a must-see while in Spain. Sagrada Familia’s construction has been very slow, relying on private donations and interrupted by the Spanish Civil War. It’s been 134 years in the making, but we will need to wait a little bit longer for it to be complete. The church’s anticipated completion date is 2026, marking the 100th anniversary of Gaudí’s death. Free & Easy is stoked to include a guided tour of this architectural masterpiece in our trip to Spain!

7 Days on a Yacht

Prepare yourself to live the dream for 7 nights on a deluxe yacht where you can work on your tan all day and party hard into the night at any one of the many mindblowing bars and clubs that Croatia has on offer. Everyday brings a new adventure and another sensational view as we navigate our way around Croatia stopping to swim, party, and enjoy the moment . From clubbing in a cave or a castle, to kayaking around Dubrovnik (aka Kings Landing), or getting the adrenaline pumping as you zipline your way down mountains, it's safe to say there is never a dull moment. With breakfast and lunch served on board and a bar stocked and ready to quench your thirst, the only things you'll have to worry about are whether to laze in a deck chair with cocktail in hand or backflip your way into the cool blue waters of the Adriatic.

Go Scuba Diving

Diving is like no other experience on Earth. Life under the water is silent and peaceful, everything is flowing and moving in a way that we land creatures are unaccustomed to. Despite all of our high tech equipment, we are extremely out of our element in the water and it is a humbling experience to watch and observe what life is like under the sea. Fish come in all shapes, sizes and colours and move together in a harmonious unison through beautiful coral and twisted sunlight. On our trips, scuba diving is a huge activity as we travel to countries that offer some of the best diving in the world. The Caribbean in Central America possesses the second largest reef in the world, the warm waters of the South Pacific in Southeast Asia are home to the largest diversity of sea-life in the world and the seas of the Mediterranean are full of rich history and beauty. There is a whole universe under the ocean and experiencing what’s it like to be in it is a must at least once in your life!

Walking the Dubrovnik City Walls

Exploring the amazing city of Dubrovnik (King’s Landing!) is an awesome highlight of this trip. And it wouldn’t be complete without getting a first hand look at the old city from above while walking the city walls. Being nearly 2000 metres all the way around with steps up and down it’s winding paths, it’s not just a stroll through the city: it’s an adventure. It’s one of the best examples of fortification and defence in Europe and boasts a long standing lifetime of keeping Dubrovnik safe with no army ever breaching it during the Middle Ages. Those views though… You can see out into the Mediterranean one way, down into the old city another way, and out into the modern day traffic and roadways another way. It’s an afternoon with a slice of what makes Croatia special with it’s ever colliding cultures of old with new. The sights will leave you breathless. Or maybe that’s the sun and heat beating down on you in this country of nearly constant perfect summer weather. After the photo ops and success of making it all the way around, treat yourself with a slice of pizza, one of Croatia’s hidden specialties, and cheers with a cold brew to celebrate another amazing day discovering something new.

Exceptional Breakfast and Lunch on the Yacht

Prepare to be delighted. The food on the yacht in Croatia is UNREAL. 7 days on the yacht, breakfast and lunch included, that's 14 meals included on your trip! Score! Every breakfast is an amazing buffet spread with tea, coffee, juice, muesli, cereal, eggs, ham, fruits, veggies and much more! Wake up in Croatia like the Croatians do: by the ocean, eating well, feeling fresh. The 2 course lunch is always served to you, like the star that you are! We've been served homemade soups, local pastas, perfectly cooked veggies, fresh fish, exquisite meats, crunchy salads, delicious desserts, and it's always amazing. The food on the yacht is a huge part of what makes this experience so amazing. The crew cater to your every need, dietary restrictions and allergies are no problem at all (As long as you let us know beforehand! Don't worry, we'll ask you). Every meal is prepared fresh on the yacht, eaten next to your friends, and just as importantly, next to the bar. Grab a beer, grab a seat, enjoy your meals!

Party in Ios

Ios is the original Greek party island and offers up some up the best parties in the Mediterranean while still maintaining the laid back lifestyle we're all looking for when we chase paradise. Due to its lack of an airport, Ios has remained somewhat overlooked and less popular than some of its island neighbours but that has allowed it to retain a typically Greek feel to it and avoid it turning into a complete gong show. There are a number of gorgeous beaches that you can laze around on and play an array of wicked water sports to chase your hangover away - or if you still haven't gone to bed yet, just another fun place to party! But young or old, everyone goes out for a night of partying in Ios, it's what life on the island revolves around and, to be honest, it's just way too much damn fun to miss out on! It's something every traveler should experience at least once.

See a Santorini Sunset

The sun sets all over the world, obviously, but in some places it just puts on a nicer display than others and Santorini, Greece is said to have the nicest sunsets in the world. The towns and villages of Santorini provide a Mecca of classic beauty for photographers and the village of Oia, in particular, offers perhaps the most stunning location to view the famous ethereal sunset of Santorini that never seems to disappoint each evening it repeats the beautiful display.

Pirate Boat Volcano Trip around Santorini

One of the coolest activities available on our 20-day Greece trip is hiking a volcano! The volcano itself is still active and its last eruption wasn’t long ago, in 1950. But not only do we hike it…we spend the whole day on a pirate boat with other like-minded travelers stopping at a few other islands while getting there and back! Enjoying the magnificent beauty of the Santorini Caldera along the way and enjoying some morning wine doesn’t hurt either. We hop on the boat in the late morning, head straight to the volcano where we face the heat and the incredibly unique volcanic surface. After the hike, we cruise over to some warm springs and cover ourselves in mud! Sound weird? It is. The mud is said to have healing properties for your skin and body. Once we rinse off and we’re looking rejuvenated, we cruise over to Thirassia for a cheap lunch and another optional hike up some switchback stairs for a unique view of Santorini, followed by a wonderful boat ride back, bringing us home just in time to get ready for the amazing clubs Santorini has to offer. This is one of those Epic Experiences you'll want to splurge on!

Road Trip in Rhodes

Who doesn’t love a good road trip? We hop on a coach bus with a local driver to take us from one end of Rhodes to the other. From the Old City, down to Prasonisi Beach, with two other beach stops in between, it’s a day full of sun, fun and window watching. It’s the perfect way to see the entire island in one day, in the relaxed and fun Free & Easy fashion. We play some frisbee, drink some beers (before they get too hot!), watch windsurfers, soak in the rays and do whatever the hell we want! On the way back we stop for an unbelievable—and uncrowded—view of the sunset overlooking an old church while locals sell homemade honey, liqueurs and other delights, great for souvenirs or snacks for the bus ride back. Join us in Greece to enjoy this one of a kind experience that we’ve been perfecting for years - it's one you’ll find nowhere else!

Walking Tour of Athens, The Acropolis & The Parthenon

Walking about Athens is a trip in and of itself—the cradle of Western civilization and the birthplace of democracy with a history spanning more than 3,400 years, it is one of the most storied cities we've ever known. And classical Greece is still very much alive in Athens with historical monuments, works of art and ancient roads visible throughout the city. Sitting above it all is The Acropolis, an ancient citadel located on a high rocky outcrop above the city and containing the remains of several ancient buildings of great architectural and historic significance, such as the Propylaia, the Erechtheion and the Temple of Athena Nike. But there is one building that is the most famous of all and beautifully portrays the essence of ancient Greece: the Parthenon. A massive, marble white temple dedicated to the goddess Athena, the Parthenon was completed in 438 B.C.E. and is one of the most important surviving structures in western civilization. Regarded as an enduring symbol of Athenian democracy, the Parthenon is not just a wondrous sight to behold but also one of the world's greatest cultural monuments and will no doubt be one of the most unforgettable man-made structures you'll ever see!

Hiking up to Ancient Thira

Perissa Beach is one of our favourite places in Santorini; it's also where we happen to stay when we're on the island. When you get there, don't be surprised if you see a random white church built into the middle of a cliff...just walk towards it. Why, you may ask? Well why the heck not, let’s go on an adventure! What you will find is a footpath. It will lead you up to the old church, and then beyond that to the Ancient City of Thira. Now this is no stroll on the beach; expect a 45-90 minute hike, depending on your fitness level, that will take you 360 meters above the shoreline! The entry once you get to the top is 2 euros (not included). The city itself is mostly ruins dating back to 300 B.C.E. It sits on a ridge atop Messavouno Mountain, and is named after the mythical ruler of Santorini Island, Theras. The city itself was inhabited up until 726 C.E. and went through multiple excavations in the 20th century. If you’re willing to push through the difficult parts of the hike, you will be rewarded ten-fold with incredible views of the island, so sit back, feel the burn, and enjoy the view knowing you worked so hard to get it!

Cycling in Mljet National Park

Mljet National Park is the perfect place to grab a bicycle and go get lost. With paths ranging from paved roads to gravel hills, it’s an adventure that you will not soon forget. It’s best to pack a few snacks and a couple road pops because you won’t want to turn around and go back. The winding paths take you through the trees and around two huge salt water lakes, Veliko and Malo Jezero where you can hop off your bike and go for a float to cool down. It’s the perfect way to get your fresh air fix and reconnect with nature. And of course, it’s made all the better with your friends by your side. In the middle of the large lake is Islet Melita, a small island housing a former Benedictine monastery from the 12th century, which is now a restaurant. A quick boat ride over and you’re transported back in time with nothing to worry about except how amazing the world truly is. Mljet is a quiet area with a focus on chilling out and relaxing, so after a wonderfully full day, it’s time to bike back to the yacht for some back flips and well deserved lounging while watching the sun set on another beautiful day in the paradise of Croatia.

Boat Trip to Palm Beach in Preveli Gorge

Grab a mug of sangria and climb aboard our private boat! A great trip around the coast of Crete from Plakias Beach to Palm Beach will awaken the pirate within you. At Palm Beach we will explore the unique micro-ecosystem that exists courtesy of no wind and a tropical atmosphere, and we can spend a few hours throwing a frisbee, drinking sangria, and hiking deep into the gorge and its giant, prehistoric-seeming rocks. Exploring the quiet beach with all of your friends by your side is the FnEZ way! You won't want to miss this adventure to the palm trees, white sand and beach bar. Plus, knowing that our boat is sailing the same seas pirates sailed thousands of years ago, passing their booty caves and old keeps will ignite your imagination as we sail another Mediterranean day away in Crete.

River Hike in Plakias

Looking for a reason to hike? How about just because? This river hike in Plakias is challenging, but worth it. Not for beginner hikers, this will be sure to excite any avid trekkers’ need for adventure. Water shoes or waterproof hiking shoes are recommended, as well as a clear head. Maybe not the best one to try hungover or if you’ve been drinking all day. Besides, you’ll need both hands to navigate this one! A two-and-a-half hour hike takes us through the Cretan countryside, in and out of the hot sun, to an opening by the river. We hop right in and follow it up for about 2 kilometres over huge boulders, all under the shady canopy of the river trees. The hike climaxes at a small river pool with a picturesque bridge overlooking it. We cool down with a swim in this seeming fairy wonderland then head back the way we came, emerging from the river into the hot sun to warm ourselves and dry our shoes. While drinking is not recommended ON this hike, it most certainly is recommended AFTER! Beer always tastes better when you’ve earned it, and after this hike, you will! Grab a Mythos, sit by the sea and cheers your comrades on a day well spent!

Pirate Booty Hike in Plakias

Behold! Pirate Booty! We’ll grab a refreshment as we walk along the beach towards the start of this hike. It takes us across the amazing cliffsides of Plakias Beach, skyrocketing above us and below. But as dangerous as that might sound, it’s a hike for all skill levels. Overlooking the bay we’ll make our way to a couple of man made caves created by the Germans during the Occupation. Moving through them, we come across a huge ancient hold where, rumour has it, pirates used to hide their booty! You can see an old wall that has fallen away and why it would have been the perfect hiding spot! Then we’ll head back the way we came, but take a hard right into the Cretan countryside, through fields, dirt roads and hiking paths all while sipping on a cool beverage until we get to the Damnoni beach for a swim, lunch at one of the restaurants (not included), and some well deserved refreshments! Keeping it Free & Easy, we’ll stay as long as we like, do what we like, and enjoy the most classic pirate booty of all: a cold drink.

ATV Roadtrip in Santorini

What better way to see the sights of beautiful Santorini than on an ATV ride through the countryside? There is more to this stunning island than the postcard sunset view, so grab a friend, hop on your ATV (only if you feel comfortable using one of course!) and head straight into an island adventure! Fly solo on your own little day away from the group, or let one of your amazing leaders take you on a joy ride you’ll never forget. From the lighthouse, to the ancient Akrotiri ruins, viewpoints of the Caldera, hidden taverna gems for great eats, volcanic beaches, Fira’s shopping district, or Oia’s white buildings, this choose-your-own-adventure kind of day is as flexible as it is fun. There is nothing like the feeling of the open road and no better place than Santorini to explore it with your Free and Easy Family! Too busy to get around to this in Santorini? You can always rent one in Ios instead. A whole different experience on a whole different Island! Whatever you choose, you'll never forget that feeling of being in control of your own adventure.

Splash Around in a Waterpark

Ready to head back in time to your childhood, splash around like a six year old, never stop smiling, and have a really, really, REALLY good time? The Water Park in Faliraki just outside of Rhodes Town is the place for you! It’s got adventure and fun around every corner. First we take a quick walk from our hotel to the bus stop for a free shuttle straight to the water park. As soon as you enter, you’ll know why we love it so much. The first thing you see is triplet slides that are as insane as they look. After that there’s carpet races, half-pipes on tubes, twin twister slides, an epic space bowl and that’s all before we break for lunch. With a lazy river, wave pool, two pitch black slides, a crazy extra wide slide, and one cement mixer this park will awaken your inner child from start to finish! Plus there's a restaurant, snack bar, locker rooms, and lounge chairs if you get tired of all the running around and just want to soak up some sun. Let OUR inner child meet YOUR inner child and let's go outside and play!

Waterfall Snorkel Trip

Start your day in Plakias right by hopping on a bus and heading to the top of Kourtaliotiko Gorge. From there you’ll hike down the stairs with your snorkel gear, hop into the refreshingly cold water and then head off to find a waterfall! An epic adventure that includes hawk sightings, crazy cool eels, a waterfall made of fresh glacier spring water that you can drink as you swim, a fruit lunch, all of your friends alongside you, and a photographer to capture it all! After you’re done absorbing the beauty of the Gorge, head back up the ancient steps, hop on the bus for one more stop and be prepared for the bonus of getting to watch a skilled potter give a demonstration of his life’s work. With no pressure to buy anything, watch as he closes his eyes and creates beautiful pieces of art just by touch. Plus, taking a look around his not-so-traditional shop is quite the adventure, with surprise creations around every corner. And this was just the morning! After all that exploring, discovering, and adventuring it’s time to head back to Plakias for an afternoon of doing whatever you want. #LiveFree and Easy!

Try Water Sports in Ios

In Ios we stay on the beautifully idyllic Mylopotas beach, complete with soft sand and cool Mediterranean waters lapping the shoreline. Want to explore more than just the sand and beach chairs? The water sports are unlimited here! To begin with, for any divers, or anyone who has always wanted to try diving, this is the place for it in Greece! Some dives start by simply walking straight off the beach into the deep blue water while others have you diving off a boat to explore a super cool shipwreck. Whichever it is, this island will keep you mermaiding around underwater all day. Or, if you’re not a diver, you can jump on the boat and do some snorkeling instead! Of course there’s also paddle-boarding, tubing behind a boat, kayaking and even paddle-boating if you’re ready for a fun trip around the bay! These awesome activities allow you to really get out there and enjoy a different perspective of this beautiful island that we love so much.

Party in an Outdoor Nightclub

Seize the Day at Hvar’s coolest night club. A hop, skip, and jump from where our yacht docks is one of the most unique club entrances of all time: a boat ride. First get on a boat taxi, filled only with people going to the same party as you. Second, watch as the coast behind you disappears and the island ahead of you becomes is illuminated by the night sky. Third, disembark from the boat onto the island. Lastly…PARTY! Carpe Diem boasts amazing DJs every night, great dancers, 4 bars, and best of all: it’s outdoors! Dance among the trees, party by the water, mingle amounst the rocks. Whatever your heart desires, you’ll find it at Carpe Diem.

Zipline the Cetina Canyon

Looking for that adrenaline rush on our 10-day Croatian adventure? We’ve got it. Ziplining in the Cetina Canyon is always a crowd pleaser, and it’s easily one of the most amazing ways to see the countryside. With 2100 meters of zipline across 8 different runs, you’ll be glad you said yes to this activity. The highest run is a whopping 150 meters above the canyon river so you and your friends can get the rush you’ve been craving! Straight off the yacht, onto a bus, and into the canyon. It’s that easy to defy the daily grind. Never look back, always say yes to something that scares you, and enjoy every day like it may be your last: travel meets adventure in Croatia with Free and Easy!

Kayaking in Dubrovnik

Epic Travel Alters Perspective… so get an altered perspective of the super cool coastal city of Dubrovnik. Skip the “normal” views and paths well traveled and get a unique tour of this amazing city along with the island of Lokrum, and be witness to a beauty that many travelers miss. The city was attacked numerous times, but has held its own and today still stands for our enjoyment. Grab your new TFFs, rent a few kayaks and get ready for a heck of an afternoon exploring the turquoise waters surrounding this ancient hold. With an amazing local guide to point out all of the best parts, you know you’ll be getting the best tour in town. But paddling is hard work! You’ll definitely deserve a cold one with your fellow paddlers on the pier after the adventure is over.

Discover Hvar’s Fortica

Discover a wild history on the island of Hvar. In 1282 the Venetians ordered the protection of Hvar by means of high walls and a strong fort. The Fortica was completed in the mid-16th century, and just in time at that. When Turkish armies attacked, the town sought refuge within the walls of the Fortica as their town burned. Today the Fortica welcomes newcomers instead of shutting out enemies and aren’t we lucky! Walk through town, the ancient Pjaca (the largest town square in Dalmatia Islands), and the 13th century walls will take you through beautiful gardens where a winding path brings you to the top of the city and into the Fortica for a view you’ll never forget.

Ultra Europe

Ultra Europe, a part of Destination Ultra--Croatia Music Week, is a three-day electronic music festival held at Poljud Stadium in Split. To mention only a few, headliners from the 2016 event included Deadmaus, Armin Van Buuren, Hardwell, David Guetta, and so many more! They included a ton of independent, up-and-coming acts for you to discover for the first time. Going with Free and Easy means you'll always have a crew that's as ready to rage as you are. Head in with your TFFs, grab a bite from one of many food stops (gyro, pizza, falafel, smoothies, so many choices!) and carb up before the night whisks you away. No need to leave your wandering spirit at the door since Ultra Europe boasts four unique stages: Main Stage, Resistance, Arcadia Afterburner, and the UMF Radio Stage for non-stop tunes to carry you late into the night. The energy on the grounds is palpable and it's impossible not to get caught up in the magic that is Ultra. This truly is one of the biggest parties in the world. It’s a chance to be a part of something bigger than you that celebrates music, togetherness, and unity across the globe and we can't wait to be there with you.

A Taste of Tapas

You can’t visit Spain without diving into the culinary delight that are Tapas. Because dinner in Spain is usually served between 9 and 11 p.m., and sometimes even later, tapas arose as a cultural necessity…people were getting downright hangry between the end of work and the serving of dinner. Small bite-sized appetizers or snacks, tapas can range from cold dishes likes mixed olives or cheese or different types of pickled foods, to hot bites like battered squid or meatballs with different sauces. No matter what you try, this is going to be a set of snacks that you will never forget. There is a reason Spain is famous for its cuisine. They can turn the most basic of food items into one of the most delicious culinary experiences of your life. The serving of tapas is meant to encourage conversation, since people aren’t focused on eating a huge meal; some tapas bars are even designed with little to no seating, so that patrons stand mingle while consuming their tapas (with a drink in hand of course). So grab your TFFs and head to that tapas bar you noticed tucked away in a little alley. #NoRegrets

Surf an Atlantic Wave

Nothing compares to the feeling you get the first time you paddle into a wave, stand up as it breaks and ride the face of it – this is the incomparable feeling of surfing. When you get it right, you'll know, because you'll be more excited than the first time you had sex and probably more addicted to it, too! Surfing is arguably the most challenging sport in the world and requires you to learn much more than physical coordination. In order to surf a wave, you'll need patience, discipline, a lack of fear and an insatiable urge to have fun. There aren't many places in Europe that can post wicked surf scenes, but Spain and Portugal sure can! These countries have become known among surf aficionados for small towns with killer breaks. Ready, set, paddle!

Sip on Fine Wines…For Cheap!

The Mediterranean is home to some of the best-known wines in the world. The variety of climates spread across the Iberian Peninsula mean that both Spain and Portugal have very strong wine-making traditions…in fact Spain’s wine-producing dates all the way back to at least 3000 years ago! Not only that, but buying wines in these countries is CHEAP! It’s the backpacker’s paradise! Incredible wines for just a few dollars a bottle? Count us in! Whether you’re sipping on Portugal’s famed Vinho Verde, or trying a delicious bottle from the famous Rioja and Tempranillo regions of Spain, you are unlikely to have complaints. Looking to try something new? What about a fortified wine? Port and Madeira in Portugal, and Sherry in Spain are very well known and definitely worth a try. So let your inner wino out, save your dollars and start sipping!

Have Your Taste Buds Blown at La Boquería

Spain’s food markets are an essential part of life in the country. Fresh produce and seafood is abundant; it’s part of what makes Spain’s culinary scene so outstanding. Each neighborhood generally boats its own market where the commercial life of each area gathers. La Boquería in Las Ramblas is one of the most famed markets in Barcelona. Here you will find the freshest catch of the day, colourful fruits and vegetables, the most delicious cured meats (You must try the Jamon Iberico…it’s famous!), more olive oil (that you can ask to taste!) then you’ve seen in your life, and SO MUCH MORE! If you’re a foodie then La Boquiería is heaven. Even if you’re not, you’re going to want to go experience, and taste, it. Venturing into the market means discovering the essence of Barcelona.

Explore the Alhambra

One of the largest tourist attractions in Granada, and one of the most visited monuments in all of Spain, the Alhambra is not to be missed. And lucky for you, Free & Easy is happy to include a guided tour of this epic spot in your trip to this glorious country! A UNESCO World Heritage Site, this Moorish citadel and palace is the most renowned building to come of the Andalusian Islamic history. The Iberian Peninsula (then known as Hispania) was conquered by the Moors of North Africa in the early 8th century, when it came to be known as Al-Andalus. The Alhambra was built by the Moors in the 9th century and overlooks all of Granada, providing some truly stunning views (and sunsets to boot). Its name can be loosely translated from Arabic as the Red Castle, due to the distinct reddish hue of its walls. Walk your way through history and some stunning architecture in Granada!

Catch a Breeze with Wind Sports

Few people realize that Southern Spain is one of the most sought after destinations in the world for wind sports. From kiteboarding to windsurfing, enthusiasts from across the globe have descended on tiny Spanish towns with beautiful white-sand beaches in recent years, turning them into ideal backpacking hubs. With an ultra-chill vibe, mellow pace of life and upbeat nighttime scene, towns like Tarifa, on the southernmost tip of the country, are quickly becoming a staple on the backpacker circuit. Why nor try something new? Lessons are available on most beaches for a variety of experience levels. So whether you’re new to windsports or a seasoned veteran, have an epic experience with some of the coolest activities around.

Take a Spanish Cooking Class

Cooking classes are one of the best ways to explore a new country. After all, food is a key ingredient in the discovery of a new culture. And Europe has been an epicenter of culinary delights and creations for centuries! Take a tour of the local market to try some of the freshest seafood, uber colourful local produce, and the most amazing cured meats. Then join your chef in sipping on a glass of wine (or three!) as you explore Spanish cuisine and local specialties. Trust us, this will be the best paella you try in the country, and you’ll be able to say you had a hand in making it! So don your chef coat and come hungry.

Drink All the Sangria

Ah, Sangria. Does anything taste better on a balmy summer day as you sit chatting with friends on your porch? Well it’s even better when you’re chilling in Spain and Portugal with your brand spankin’ new TFFs! Spain and Portugal are the Sangria Capitals of Europe! Not only has Sangria been around in these areas for close to 2,000 years, but it’s also where you will find some of the cheapest, most delicious versions of this wine cocktail that you can imagine. So what exactly is Sangria? Traditionally it consists of red wine (although some people now make it with white instead), chopped fruit like orange, lemon, peaches and/or berries, a sweetener like honey or fruit juice, and brandy. It’s then left to sit in the fridge for as little as a few minutes all the way up to a few days! Thinking of ordering a glass of it? Forget it…order a pitcher. Some nightclubs even sell it by the 2L bottle. Now that’s hardcore. Whether you’re tucked away in a tiny café off La Rambla, or sitting in a beachside bar in Lagos, this wine-based specialty is sure to quench your thirst and lead to the best of times.

Ramble Down La Rambla

Welcome to La Rambla, the most famous street in Spain. A beautiful tree-lined promenade located in central Barcelona, La Rambla forms the boundary between the Gothic Quarter to the east and El Raval to the west. Here you can find street traders and performers, kiosks selling newspapers and flowers, as well as pavement cafés and bars. Originally a waterway, the pavement itself has actually been designed to reflect its history with a rippling, water-like pattern. Stroll along and stop at everything from a celebrated Joan Miró mosaic, to famed La Boquería market, and Barcelona’s oldest theatre, the Teatre Principal. Wander down any of La Rambla’s branching side streets and you will come across tiny tapas bars, vintage stores, pubs, bakeries and anything else you can imagine. Some of your favourite nights in the city will probably happen around the hub that is La Rambla!

Barcelona City Tour

We will have our young local guide take us around the Gothic Quarter, showing us all the fascinating buildings and explaining the history in a way that will keep you captivated and doesn't feel like history class!

Experience the Flamenco

Flamenco goes to the heart of Spanish culture. An art-form native to the Andalusian region of Spain, it dates back to the 1700s, and is now popular the world over. In fact, there are actually more Flamenco academies in Japan than in Spain! On a technical level, Flamenco includes cante (singing), toque (guitar playing), baile (dance), jaleo (vocalizations), palmas (handclapping) and pitos (finger snapping). But really, going to see a Flamenco performance is an incredibly immersive experience not to be missed. The passion that is portrayed and enacted by the performers is captivating, and it truly is a unique style of art. Whether you simply want to go watch a show, or take a lesson while you’re there, Spain is THE place to experience the Flamenco.

River Rafting Croatia

Rafting in Croatia is an awesome way to spend an afternoon getting some refreshing outdoors time and stretching some muscles you might not be used to using. Nothing feels better than that dopamine after trying something new! The rapids aren’t too strong, so it makes for a relaxing, fun time floating through the forested river. Rafting is all about team work and following the instructions of your local guide who knows all the hidden gems, including a sweet cliff jumping spot and the slow areas where you can jump out and have a swim in the refreshing fresh water. Paddling together and working as a team has a way of solidifying a friendship, whether it’s with an old friend or someone you just met. Completing tasks and accomplishing something together is one of those surprising things you don’t always think will happen when you’re traveling, but when it does, it reminds you of the passion and spirit of the human race. It reminds you that there’s always room for more friends in your life, especially those willing to jump in a raft with you and navigate down a winding, rapid filled river on an adventure you took the chance on. Plus, you won’t be able to wipe the smile off your face once you reach the finish line! It’s a wonderful five hour adventure that will leave you wanting more.

Party in a Cave

Caves are a dark, mysterious place and can be pretty spooky, but when they’re filled with all your friends, illuminated by funky lights, and the air is filled with pumping beats then a cave is one hell of a place to party! Makarska, one of the stops on our yacht trip, will have us spending an evening of good fun in the beautiful club Deep. With the surprisingly spacious cave acting as the centrepiece with a dancefloor and bar, the rest is for you to explore. Deep is set right on the water, so choose your seat: on the rocks, in the water, by the bar. Either way, this unique experience is sure to be one of your favourites! Once the sun comes up, we'll emerge from Deep like bats to return to our yacht and keep the party going there!

Party in a Fortress

Are you ready for one of the best club experiences of your life? Enter through rock arches that have been standing since the 16th century, stare up at ornate ceilings yawning high above you, venture up dramatic staircases twisting to the next story of the fortress, grab a drink from the bar and get ready to spend all night partying in Revelin! World class DJs, trippy aerial dancers, and plenty of interesting spaces to dance and mingle in make this a night to remember! Once a Fortress used to reinforce the Old City of Dubrovnik, this is an epic setting for light shows, cage dancers, and you & all of your new friends! Now a museum by day, club by night, Revelin will be sure to ignite your imagination and remind you that this is the reason you travel: to discover the unexpected and revel in it.

Beach Cleanup

Our Trash Hero beach cleanups are a great way to do good, feel good, and get some beach all at the same time. With thousands of tons of trash swirling around the oceans, the unfortunate reality is that some of it washes up onto the beautiful beaches we fall in love with around the world. So we thought ‘Let’s do something about this!’ Our partnership with Trash Hero began in Koh Lipe, Thailand, where they regularly organized beach cleanup days. Today, Trash Hero has gone viral and can be found operating in Thailand and Indonesia, and is spreading into dozens more countries at a rapid pace. On our end, beach cleanup day quickly became one of the most fun and rewarding days on our Thailand trip. So we decided to spread the love, and have instituted a beach cleanup day into our regular itineraries across the world. Through our sponsorship and partnership with Trash Hero, our travellers and others like them have since collected tens of thousands of kilograms of trash from the beaches we travel to…and really, there’s nothing more epic than saving the world! ** We will always strive to make a beach cleanup happen, but sometimes we may not be able to make it happen **
