GALICIA DAY TOURS

The Ría de Arousa is the biggest and most important of the Galician Rias, the estuaries that run through the land into the Atlantic. These waters provide some of the best seafood in all of Europe, including the famous Carrill clams. What's more, with the influx of the Ulla and Umia rivers, this area is naturally an ideal zone for growing fruit, most notably grapes. In fact, some of the best white wines in Spain are produced right here in what is known as the D.O. Rías Baixas.

That's why we propose two different types of tours for this region, in order to get the most out of your visit, and get the most from the region, its wines, scenery, fishing traditions and its fantastic cuisine:

 

RIA DE AROUSA WINE AND GARDEN TOUR (8 hours)

The microclimate of the Ria de Arousa is perfect for the vineyards and lovely gardens surrounding the 'Pazos'. A great variety of lush and exuberant flowers can be found, among them Camellia, the flower of Galicia, whose beauty has dazzled poets and writers in the region for centuries.

'Pazos' are traditional manor houses which are unique to Galicia. Given their beauty, they have become much sought after and many have been converted into stunning rural hotels or wineries. On this tour we will take you to two of the most important Pazos in Galicia:

The price includes private transportation, visits to a winery and two pazos with wine tastings in each one and lunch in a familiar wine cellar.

Starting from $168 per adult. (*)

(*) The price shown is based on a group of 6 people. Prices vary for smaller and larger groups, seasons and according to your preferences and needs. Contact us for more information.

 

RIA DE AROUSA BOAT AND WINE TRIP (8 hours)

Take a two hour boat ride along the Ria de Arousa to see what daily life is like for the fishermen or shellfish gatherers, depending on the season. We will sail past the famous 'bateas' (floating oyster farms) and as we make our way down the river we will find different kinds of boats and people fishing for squid, razor clams, sea bass, hake, clams and crabs, each with their specific fishing gear.

During the cruise we will enjoy a special picnic lunch, tasting some gourmet seafood preserves and an empanada gallega with an excellent Albariño wine.

After the cruise choose between visiting one of the following Pazos:

The price includes private transportation, a 2-hour cruise along the Ria de Arousa, a visit to a Pazo including wine tasting and a picnic lunch including wine.

Starting from $196 per adult. (*)
