Spain & Portugal have many destinations to choose from for Self Drive Tours here are some suggestions.
The choices in Spain are endless if you are into self guided travel or road trip holidays so sometimes it´s difficult to decide which region or part of Spain to visit: the north, the south, the Main cities (Barcelona & Madrid), etc.
Andalucia covers most of the southern area. This is possibly the first region that comes to mind when we think of Spain: whitewashed villages, flamenco, fiestas, toros, siesta, etc. In Andalucia, we can also find popular cities like Sevilla, Marbella, Malaga, Cordoba or Granada.
The North of Spain is also known as Green Spain due to the green color of its lush vegetation and forests, you will enjoy the beautiful scenery in these road trip tours. It comprises 4 different regions: Galicia, Asturias, Basque Country and Cantabria.
One of the regions of Green Spain is Galicia, a Celtic land located in the north-west of Spain, right above Portugal. The capital is Santiago de Compostela and it´s also the end of the Way of St.James or Camino Pilgrimage which receives thousands of tourists every year with open hands. There are many other cities worth visiting in Galicia, like A Coruña or Vigo. The latter is located in the Rias Baixas Area, a wine area known for the production of Albariño white wine.
Portugal, on the other hand, is divided into 18 districts. Lisbon is one of them and it´s as well the stunning capital of Portugal. It´s located on the estuary of the Tagus River and it embraces its history and heritage. Close to Lisbon, we can find fantastic places like Sintra (you can´t miss Sintra if you visit Lisbon), Belem, Cascais, Obidos, etc.
