Summary

Decorated 15-35,000 years ago, the caves of Altamira still display some of humankind’s first great artistic achievements. This is a unique chance to view the vivid images of horse, bison and deer that have come to epitomize Paleolithic art. Throughout this tour, we will stay in historic towns nestled among the hills of northern Spain, which allows us to visit each of the sites on our itinerary with ease and also maximizes our touring time. A visit to the Ice Age caves of northern Spain is a tremendous privilege. Where else could you approach original masterpieces of such immense antiquity in situ? Led by experts in rock art, for this tour we have secured special access to a selection of memorable caves and rock art sites. Here, we can view the images precisely where they were created, standing or crouching exactly as the original artists once did.

Tour highlights:

  • Experience a tour in the esteemed company of our experts in rock art
  • Wander the spectacular cave at Tito Bustillo and admire its images, both painted and engraved
  • Examine the contrast between ancient art seen in the caves themselves and the modern art on display at the world-renowned Guggenheim in vibrant Bilbao
  • Pay a memorable visit to the famous Altamira Cave, widely regarded as the Sistine Chapel of cave art
