Cantabria and the Ebro Valley

October 12th to 18th 2013

Cantabria in autumn is a very beautiful place. The heat of summer has lessened and in the clear mountain air the views are spellbinding. Impala will be running an off road and cultural adventure to this part of northern Spain from October.

You will be spending seven nights at the Molino Del Alto Ebro; a beautifully restored 16th century mill nestled in the Ebro Valley. All apartments in this boutique hotel have small fully equipped kitchens with washing machines in the 3 floored apartments. The food & wine here is fabulous and many of Tati’s Gin & Tonics, (which quite frankly are a work of art) were sampled on the reconnaissance. 

From here we will be heading out onto the roads and tracks that criss cross the valleys and mountains of Valderredible. There are river crossings and climbs from the valley floor to the mountains tops where you will be able to marvel at the ubiquitous Griffon Vultures that soar amongst this landscape.

Ancient history is very rich in this part of Spain: we visit the Roman ruins of La Olmeda; a cave in the mountains steeped in a dark history from the Napoleonic Wars (its name reflects this mystery) Cueva de los Franceses. Spain also has caves with paintings that rival those in France and at Puente Viesgo you will marvel at the skill and imagination of the distant artists in the Cueva El Castillo.

This adventure will run from October 12th to the 18th and costs £1,700 (based on 2 people sharing) for seven nights dinner bed and breakfast at the Molino and Impala Support. We can get a 15% discount on ferries from England to Spain or France for you as well.
