Busabout updates the Iberian Adventure Tour for 2017
Since travelling on the Busabout Iberian Adventure in 2015 the tour has changed for the 2017 season and for the better. The tour is now a one way journey linking up to the newly created Hop-On Hop-Off network into Portugal and linking up to the Spanish capital Madrid on the existing network. Continue below to read about my 2015 adventure with Busabout or click the link below to read about the changes.
Day 01: Madrid to Seville via Cordoba
It’s a bright and early morning as a new group of adventures gather outside Madrid’s U Hostel for Busabout’s Iberian Adventure tour that kicks off today from the Spanish capital. First stop for the day is the historic town of Cordoba influenced by its Roman and Morrish past and now a UNESCO World Heritage site. Then we arrive in the beautiful city of Seville where we are shown around by a local guide and take in the sites of the town not to mention the old Cathedral of Seville. In the evening the group gets to know one another for what will be an amazing seven days on the road.
Day 02 & 03: Seville to Lagos via Plaza de España
As we depart the beautiful town of Seville we make one final stop and that is to the stunning Plaza de España the inspiring location for Star Wars Episode I & II as well as comedy The Dictator. From here we continue on the Iberian Adventure tour and head further west on the European continent for a new country Portugal and the small town of Lagos on the south western tip of the country. Here we will be based for two nights as we party up a storm and head out into the Atlantic Ocean for some sea kayaking along the stunning coastline.
Day 04: Lagos to Tangier, Morocco via Tarifa
This morning we not only depart the beautiful town of Lagos, we depart the country of Portugal and on top of that we depart the continent of Europe. Today we are heading to Africa and the Moroccan city of Tangier just across the strait as we catch a ferry and spend some time in the Spanish seaside town of Tarifa. Upon arrival our local guide takes us around the city as we explore the narrow alleyways that are important to the local people.
Day 05 & 06: Tangier, Morocco to Granada, Spain
This morning we ready ourselves before our departure from Morocco and the African continent as we make our way back across the Strait of Gibraltar back to Spain. Once we arrive back in Tarifa we jump straight back on the coach and make our way towards Granada, the location of Spain’s most cited attraction The Alhambra. While in Granada we will also experience a Flamenco Show to soak up some Spanish culture as our Iberian Adventure tour slowly comes to an end and we start to make our way back to the capital Madrid.
Day 07: Granada to Madrid via Consuegra & Toledo
Our final day has arrived. We depart the city of Granada as we make our return to Madrid making a couple of stops along the way, first being Consuegra where we will check out some of the famous windmills searched at the top of the hill where we will take our final group photo. We then continue on to experience the medieval city of Toledo where we have a couple of hours to explore the cobble stoned road city and to grab some lunch. Our day concluded where it all started back in Madrid for one final group dinner.
