Description

Ready to dive into the heart of Galician charm with a sprinkle of adventure? Our Rías Baixas extravaganza kicks off in Santiago de Compostela and promises a day bursting with unique experiences and scenic delights! First up, we’ll swoop into a traditional winery tucked in the verdant landscapes of Rías Baixas. Here, you’ll get a firsthand peek at the meticulous craft behind the region’s famed wines. Swirl, sniff, and sip your way through a guided tasting that’s sure to tantalize your taste buds and deepen your appreciation for Galician viticulture. Then, it's all aboard for a serene boat ride across the crystalline waters, where you’ll witness the art of aquaculture at the floating 'bateas.' Opt in to crack open endless mussels, sip on crisp local wine, and treat yourself to a dash of orujo cream. Whether you're a shellfish aficionado or a sea-loving soul, this segment is a palate-pleaser! Once docked, our journey continues to the quaint harbor town of O Grove. Take a leisurely stroll through the harbor and the beginnings of the historic center. You’ll have ample time to explore local eateries and discover O Grove’s whimsical sculptures that pepper the village, adding an artistic twist to your visit. Next, we venture to the enchanting island of A Toxa, famed for its therapeutic muds and the iconic La Toxa Bridge that binds it to history and the mainland. Uncover the island’s transformation from a humble pasture to a luxurious retreat—a true island fairy tale! Our narrative then carries us to the mystical A Lanzada hermitage, nestled where wine and ocean secrets mingle. Here, delve into ancient rituals of fertility linked to the enchanting lore of the nine waves—a story that ebbs and flows like the sea itself. Finally, we'll drop anchor in the picturesque village of Combarro. This enchanting locale is a living postcard with its iconic granaries perched by the sea and narrow, winding streets that beckon with their timeless allure. As our day winds down, we return to Santiago, hearts full of Galician wonders. Curious to learn more or ready to claim your spot on this unforgettable tour? Reach out anytime—we’re here to make your Galician getaway as magical as the destination itself!
