You don’t need to fly to far flung destinations to experience the joys of solo travel. Northern Spain’s Basque country is the perfect place for an indulgent trip for one complete with fantastic food and wine. Head to the town of Ordizia to stroll around its fabulous foodie market and learn how fiercely protective its people are of their regional dishes and don’t miss a trip to San Sebastian, the jewel in Spain’s culinary crown. The seaside city is a food-lover’s paradise with its plethora of food markets and iconic seafood dishes. Join locals in their pre-dinner rituals at little pintxo
bars and settle down for an evening of authentic and unique tapas. One of the benefits of Spain solo travel is that it really allows you delve deep into the culture – and by culture we mean cuisine. Maybe you’ll discover your new favourite dish at one of the Basque Country's highly secretive culinary societies or find yourself salivating at Sevillian street food vendors, praying they haven’t run out of moreish Cazón en adobo (marinated dogfish). Speaking of cravings, a quick trip to Madrid and Barcelona are sure to satisfy, with their quirky neighbourhoods, opulent art galleries and modern rooftop bars.

I must tell you that you made a believer out of me. I travel a lot for business globally and everything you organised was top of the line. I was so enthusiastic about your team that I gave your coordinates to my flight neighbour. It says it all! Thank you for a wonderful vacation to Spain.
There is something wonderfully romantic about travelling alone, especially when you’re visiting cities as swoon worthy as Seville. Home to timeless Renaissance palaces, Gothic churches and bustling flamenco clubs that reverberate the country’s intimate and intoxicating traditions, Seville will have you falling head over heels in no time. However, if walking boots are your footwear of choice, spend your Spain solo travel adventure delving into Mallorca’s mountains. Hike along rugged trails and narrow streets and don’t miss a visit to the small coastal village of Deià – the playground of the rich and famous and a frequent supporting cast member in many BBC and ITV dramas.
If you need a break from the sizzling European sun, seek refuge in one of Bilbao’s iconic museums. Lose hours in the Guggenheim as you ogle at Yves Kliens and Andy Warhols, and discover how art and culture have helped to boost struggling regional economies. Malaga knows a thing or two about art as well. Accompanied by a private guide, tour the Picasso Museum in the heart of the city’s old town and learn about the eccentric artist’s career as you get up close and personal with some of his most noted works. While we believe arty afternoons go hand in hand with plates of croquetas and empanadas, if you’re after something a little heartier, nothing beats Porra Antequerana. Served cold, this Malagueño tomato-based soup is a guaranteed crowd pleaser – especially on balmy summer nights. Really, could Spain solo travel sound more romantic?
