Itinerary details

Your family adventure to Spain starts in the iconic Catalonian city of Barcelona. Spain’s second largest city, Barcelona is rich in culture and history dating back to the Roman era and beyond. You’ll get a feel for that heritage right from the get-go at your hotel, Mercer Barcelona. This luxurious five-star hotel sits in the evocative surroundings of the city’s Gothic Quarter, in a building which combines ancient Roman foundations, medieval arches, and an attractive modern design.

Continue your exploration of Barcelona’s past at the 2,000-year-old Temple of Augustus down the road, before checking out the city’s most iconic landmark: Gaudi’s eye-catching Sagrada Familia.

Then, you’ll get the chance to experience Barcelona in unforgettable fashion, getting a different perspective on the city and surrounding countryside with a hot air balloon ride. After enjoying a welcome drink, you’ll climb in the basket and soar over the unspoiled landscapes of Montseny Natural Park, admiring the monastery-topped mountain of Montserrat and taking in the views over Barcelona. With clear skies, you’ll even catch a glimpse of the Mediterranean Sea in the distance.

4 nightsMARBELLA 

The second leg of your trip sees you soaking up some sun, sea and sand on the Costa del Sol, as you fly to the resort city of Marbella.

You’ll spend four nights in five-star luxury at the Marbella Club, a resort with a huge range of activities on offer for family members of all ages. There’s no end of cultural, sporty and educational activities to keep kids occupied – they’ll become master chefs in waiting at the Garage Kitchen, cooking up gazpacho, pizza and paella, or they can channel their creative side with music and dance performances. They can also get active at the beach, with kayaking, surfing, volleyball and football just a few of the sporting activities available.

Mum and dad can also indulge their inner child with go-karting or banana boating, with parasailing and jet skiing among the other water sports on offer. Of course, if all that sounds too strenuous, you can spend your time here doing little more than relaxing – all you have to do is choose between the beach or the resort’s three pools.
