Rolls Royce & Bentley EnthusiastClub St. James’s Way & Douro Valley
May 27th - June 6th 2020
The Iberian Peninsula is one of the places with the greatest cultural, geographical and climatic diversity in Europe. “Like a continent in miniature size” as some geographers have described it; rich in history and traditions, forged over the centuries by its different inhabitants, giving it a unique and different character.
On this tour the travellers will have the opportunity to see first-hand one of the oldest and most well known traditions in the whole world: THE SANTIAGO PILGRIMAGE TRAIL also known as ST.JAMES´S WAY (El Camino de Santiago), a route that began to be frequented by pilgrims in the ninth century and still continues today.
The trail’s objective is to reach the tomb of the Apostle Santiago (St James), which is located inside the Santiago de Compostela Cathedral in Galicia, from different parts of Europe.
The route will start in Bilbao, where the travellers will disembark the ferry from Portsmouth and from here the tour will drive along the beautiful roads of northern Spain, stopping in different cities, enjoying great hotels and wonderful landscapes, until reaching Santiago de Compostela.
Tourers will have the opportunity to get to know the north of Portugal for a few days, visiting the impressive city of Oporto and tasting its famous wine along the banks of the Douro river, after which they will return to Spain stopping in Salamanca and Valladolid. From there travellers will return to Santander where the ferry will return to Portsmouth.
Club Jaguar XK & ETypeFrance & Running of the Bulls
2nd - 11th July 2020
When the “chupinazo” rocket is fired, the city of Pamplona transforms into an explosion of life. Thousands of people from around the world flood the streets of this city, which is awash with white and red.
Over these days the streets are filled with fraternity, happiness and a buzzing atmosphere, marked by the rhythm of the charanga brass bands and the peña social clubs.
The bull run is the only moment of the day in which the festivities are paused and tension invades the route minutes before the bulls set off on their race on the heels of the runners. The fiesta continues with the “caldico” consommé, the hot chocolate with churros, the procession, the giants and big heads, the aperitif, the bull fight, and the fireworks that announce the arrival of the buzzing night-life.
Everyone should live this experience at least once in their life, but before arriving in Pamplona the group will drive through some of the most beautiful roads and places in France like the Loire Valley and its impressive castles and the Perigord region, well known for its spectacular medieval cities and landscapes.
In addition to enjoying the world famous San Fermin fiestas in Pamplona, drivers and their companions will enjoy some of the most beautiful road routes in France and Northern Spain.
The Pyrenees are impressive, with snow on their tops most of the year. But most interesting is the two very different cultures that they span. Near the coastal resort of Biarritz on the Atlantic coast, the area is Basque speaking while in the eastern Mediterranean you'll feel you are in Catalonia in both language and culture. In the central part of the Pyrenees the the Parc National des Pyrénées is a paradise for varied flora and fauna lovers.
What does the tour include? An amazing cable car ride to the Pic the Midi, a 4x4 route into the Ordesa National Park, a visit to the interesting San Juan Monastery and some of the most incredible (and fun) mountain roads in Europe.
