Galician Experiences bilingual trip. This voyage is in English and Spanish – it’s okay to only speak one of those languages to feel at home on board. Board the Atyla in Gijon and meet your shipmates before going out to explore the at your leisure. After the first night on board you will spend 3 days sailing the northern coast and down into Vigo. In Vigo you can join a guided gastro-historic tour of the city including tapas in a couple local taverns. Then it’s time for a cycling trip along the coast!

Gijón is the largest city of Spain’s Asturias region, located on the Bay of Biscay. Visit the picturesque San Lorenzo beach for beautiful views – or perhaps you will want to try your hand at surfing? Taste local cheeses and seafood in one of the many restaurants. If you feel like stretching your legs after being on board, Gijón offers great hiking opportunities. And if you like architecture, you can’t miss the magnificent La Laboral University campus and its tower viewpoint.
Vigo is a coastal city in Galicia, Spain, close to the Portugese border. Stroll along the charming streets, hidden just behind the busy port; climb up to the castro Fortress for an unforgettable view of the Vigo Bay or take a day trip to the Cíes Islands.
