¿Por que no? Indeed… this road trip is all about the wet stuff — from Barcelona’s Mediterranean seashore, and all the beautiful people who are drawn to its docile shores, to the world’s biggest (and only) red-wine fight in Haro, La Rioja, and then a washing of the sins on the Basque Atlantic coastline.

 

Why not wine and waves, we ask, knowing that for these ten days and nine nights we can just about do both and then some. If you want to get wet and wild on the inside and out then this is the road trip for you.

 

Barcelona is awesome. It has a bit of everything, but still retains a small city vibe. The nightlife is nothing less than hectic and intense, the day life is a myriad of colours, sites, sounds, smells, street performers and sangria.

 

If you’ve been lucky enough to find a bottle of La Rioja in your hands you’ll know what we’re talking about! La Batalla del Vino takes place on a hillside vineyard just outside the village of Haro, a walk up the hill from our campsite.

 

As far as surf goes, well we’re only a hop skip and a jump away from the finest surf beaches in Europe. And if National Geographic says we’re located in one of the World’s Top 20 Surf Towns, well who are we to dispute it!

THE ACTIVITIES

Saturday 24th June: Barcelona

 

Check in to your central Barcelona hostel and meet the hosts. Explore the city, hit the beach, bask in the nakedness, eat the tapas and drink the sangria before jumping on  one of our flagship boat parties. Rage on the Mediterranean while we cruise along Barcelona’s coastline. The unlimited drinks on board will properly prepare you for a night of exploring Barcelona’s nightlife – we’ll provide free entry to the Mediterranean city’s famous beach clubs.

 

Sunday 25th June: Barcelona

 

Recovery mode with a hearty hostel breakfast, before discovering Barcelona on foot with a walking tour. See the sights and learn the secrets of this ancient city. Eat. Drink. Love life. Prepare yourself for another Barcelona party night.  

 

Monday 26th June: Barcelona

 

Why stop now? Spend the day seeing the sights not included on your walking tour. Visit some of our favourite bars. Sit on terraces in the sun drinking world-class Spanish wines. Head up to the Bunkers with your hosts to watch the sunset with uninterrupted 360˚ views of the greater Barcelona area, from the Mediterranean to the Pyrenees. Come and party again, we’ve got the hook-ups so you’d be crazy not to.

 

Tuesday 27th June: San Vino

 

Check out and jump on the bus – we’re going to wine country. Haro, our destination, is located in La Rioja, which is Spain, and maybe the world’s, number one red-wine making region. Arrive at the campsite and find your tents ready to rock and the BBQ preparation underway. Our San Vino parties are legendary and when our open bar closes you might want to head into town to get loose with the locals.

 

Wednesday 28th June: San Vino

 

The best winemakers in the region have supplied local vino for us to taste, and we’re going to pretend we know what we’re talking about while we drink as much as we can (and never spit out even one drop). And what would world-class wine be without cheese? Still world-class wine, but cheese is delicious so we’re going to make mice of ourselves and indulge. In the night we’ll go into the town square where bands and DJs play all night, and the locals party with them. Can you last the distance? Tomorrow is a very big day, after all.

 

Thursday 29th June: San Vino

 

After an early hot breakfast, we head up to the vineyard on the hill where the wine fight takes place. This party is very straight forward, we throw wine on each other and the locals all morning, until we’re stained purple and we’re a little drunk again (it seems to get in through the skin). After the wine fight the locals BBQ local meats and snails (snails!) and eat cheese and drink more wine, before heading into town, where the locals throw themselves in front of young bulls just for fun. You’ll probably be asleep by now (that’s a challenge).

 

Friday 30th June: Zarautz 

 

Through your purple-stained eyelids awake to a hot breakfast before jumping on the bus to Zarautz, on the other side of the mountains and by the sea, where the view will make your eyes weep and the beer is always cold (we have wine, too, if you still want wine, you purple little legends).

 

Afternoon surf? 100% And our professional and professionally fun surf guides will make sure you get the lessons you need for your level, as well as guide you into the best waves. Boards and lessons are included in the price, and once you’ve filled your face with salt water and your hair with sand we’ll retreat back to the campsite for a kickass camp party.

 

Saturday 1st July: Zarautz

 

Rise with the sun coming over the Basque Pyrenees and check the surf. The morning wind still hasn’t come up, and the air is warm. Breakfast is consumed with talk of the day’s conditions and your guides are working out the best spot for you. Hit the beach with your lunch packed and settle in for a day of surfing, sunning and beach gaming, a day where your eyes will be assaulted by the naked and semi-naked sun worshippers in a positive and negative way. That night you can see the locals with clothes on when we head down into town to drink the local drinks and dance the local dances.

 

Sunday 2nd July: Zarautz

 

Surf’s up, again… So let’s hit the sand and shred. Or perhaps you want to go into San Sebastian and take selfies from all the vantage points and eat all the delicious tapas. Back at camp, after today’s session(s), we’ll retreat to the hillside where we can watch the sun dip her fiery toes into the Bay of Biscay. Millions of beers and sangrias optional and included (if you want to part with the €10 a day surcharge aka the best deal in the universe).

 

Monday 3rd July: Finale

 

Check out is at 11, but first you can eat a delicious hot breakfast to get you up and about. After that you can hang a bit in San Sebastian or be on your way. Whatever you like, the world is at your feet. You can always stay some more nights in Zarautz or jump on our bus (€15) to go stay at our Pamplona Running of the Bulls camp.

LOCATION & GETTING HERE

Location

BRILLIANT BARCELONA

 

The home of Gaudi, Dali, the 1992 Olympics, FCB and the French Bulldog.

It’s a tourist Mecca. Thousands upon millions upon billions of sun-seeking, fun-loving revellers flock here every year and there’s a bloody good reason for it. It’s because Barcelona is awesome. It has a bit of everything, but still retains a small city vibe. The nightlife is nothing less than hectic and intense, the day life is a myriad of colours, sites, sounds, smells, street performers and sangria.

It’s a place you’ve just gotta see. And we’re pretty much experts… if we do say so ourselves… so we’ll show you Barcelona from unforgettable point of view.

 

HARO, LA RIOJA

 

La Rioja is the número uno wine making district of Spain, it has over 500 wineries and is only a short distance from Bilbao. If you’ve been lucky enough to find a bottle of La Rioja in your hands you’ll know what we’re talking about! La Batalla del Vino takes place on a hillside vineyard just outside the village of Haro, a walk up the hill from our campsite.

 

ZARAUTZ

 

We stay 20 minutes outside of San Sebastian at a beautiful clifftop campsite overlooking the surf beach of Zarautz.

As far as surf goes, well we’re only a hop skip and a jump away from the finest surf beaches in Europe. And if National Geographic says we’re located in one of the World’s Top 20 Surf Towns, well who are we to dispute it!
