Sink into the rhythms of the Mediterranean as we seek out hidden gems and small wonders along Spain’s Costa de Azahar, or Orange Blossom Coast. We’ll visit off-the-beaten-path towns, sites, and experiences that rarely receive fanfare but form the region’s beating heart. Whether we’re walking among 2,000-year-old olive trees, watching a live pilota match, or viewing an unexpected art collection in a small medieval village, we promise you’ll be charmed and delighted.
This is slow travel at its best, with an itinerary intentionally curated to capture beauty—a journey that encourages you to savor every moment. We’ll immerse ourselves in a region rich in tradition, culture, and diverse natural landscapes. We’ll eat ridiculously well at every opportunity and in the true spirit of the Mediterranean lifestyle, we’ll take the time to truly connect with each other and also with the people we meet along the way.
The listed price of the trip is per person based on double occupancy.
You’re in good company. Solo travelers typically make up about half of our small groups. With curiosity at the center of our experiences, there’s a natural camaraderie that develops over the course of a trip. We have two options for you:
Shared Room (subject to the latest Covid-19 guidelines): You’ll be matched with another solo traveler of the same gender.
Private Room: Have your own room, subject to availability, for a supplemental cost of $380. After booking your trip, please request a private room when you fill out your traveler information form and we’ll add the option to your booking and final balance.
Travelers should be comfortable staying on their feet for long stretches at a time and walking anywhere between two to three hours at a time, sometimes on uneven ground. Many of the towns we visit have pedestrianized centers, requiring us to walk significant distances around town to reach sites and restaurants, often over cobblestones and up and down some steep streets. The picturesque countryside we are exploring is hilly, so we will encounter hills and stairs on foot. Most days, we'll be out and about with time to rest at lunch and dinner, both of which will take place on the later side. Accommodations and alternative activities will be offered, where available, for any travelers with limited mobility in order that everyone can enjoy the trip to the utmost.
You should aim to arrive in Valencia on Day 1 by 3 p.m., and depart anytime in the afternoon on Day 7.
While we make every effort to cater to vegetarian and vegan diets, you will find limited substitute options in Spain, especially if you do not eat seafood. If you are neither a pescatarians nor omnivore, you may wish to supplement with back-up snacks. Please let us know of any dietary restrictions and allergies in advance.
