Spain marks most, if not all, of holiday destinations checklists. Most people consider touring the region during the summer. However, this is not the only ideal season to explore the magical sceneries, relax on the majestic beaches, taste the mouthwatering cuisine, and experience the rich culture. If you are looking for a more relaxed holiday without the hassles of a tourist crowd, fall is the best season to tour Spain.
While Spain is busy during the summer, it doesn’t sleep the rest of the year. There won’t be mammoth crowds, but the temperatures are still friendly. You’ll get great bargains, from flight tickets, bus, train, accommodation, to mention a few considerations that facilitate smooth touring endeavors. Besides the classic destinations like Madrid and Barcelona, here are some of the best fall destinations in Spain.
While not among the most developed regions, the region boasts incredible sandy beaches and unspoiled fishing villages. You’ll also find the Mar Menor, a unique saltwater lagoon that’s also among the biggest in Europe. The region, lying between Costa Blanca and Costa Almeria, enjoys a microclimate, meaning that it’ll be warm enough to enjoy the water and explore the vast scenery.
If you are more into nature, the Spanish archipelago, just off the coast of northwestern Africa, has you covered. Among the must-visit sites in the region includes Mt. Teide, the snowy volcano, Timanfaya National Park, Siam Park, and Finca Canarias Aloe Vera, to mention a few. With quieter resorts and smaller crowds, your Spain holidays in fall will help you see more of the sites. After a long but exciting sightseeing day, take a swim in the sea; it is warm and fun during fall.
Gorbea Natural Park
A fall holiday won’t be complete if you don’t experience the majestic views of leaves changing color. At the foot of Mount Gorbea, the natural park offers an exciting experience as you explore the carpet of burnt orange leaves. The region is a popular fall tour destination for nature lovers, allowing you to take in the magnificent view of flora and fauna while exploring the rich sceneries, including a visit to Gujuli waterfall and Oro Sanctuary just to mention a few.
Are you more into architecture? Seville is an architectural marvel that can satisfy even the hard-to-please individuals. Plaza de Espana, Alcazar Palace, Museo De Bellas Artes De Sevilla, Casa de Pilatos, among others, will make your city visit an unforgettable experience. Don’t forget to immerse yourself with the locals; flamenco culture is especially a fascinating concept you shouldn’t miss during your tour.
Spain has something for everyone, whether you are looking for adrenaline-pumping activity, are a foodie, or looking to relax on the beach. While not on top of most people’s tour plans, fall is a great season to visit the region, as the temperatures aren’t as high as during the summer or cold. You’ll enjoy the outdoors, especially with lesser crowds.
