De una ruta por los fiordos a una isla sorpresa, cinco ofertas para huir del calor

Heat waves follow one another, the beaches fill up and everyone wants to escape from the heat and their daily routine. It’s what summer vacations have. However, there are many people who still do not have the remotest idea about what they will do this summer. Beach, mountain or an exotic trip?

If you are one of these travelers looking for an opportunity, keep reading this article, because this week we have selected five proposals that could fit you like a glove, and, incidentally, save you some money. There is a bit of everything: river cruises, routes through the fjords or a getaway to the Pyrenees. You choose.


Douro Cruise: 6 days for €601

6th August

This trip is different from any other: it allows you to navigate the Douro on a high-class, all-inclusive boat that sets sail from Porto and returns to the same city. The route offers a delicious panoramic view of the Douro landscapes, with an itinerary that passes through Regua, Pinhao, Vega de Terrón (Salamanca), Barca d’Alva, Ferradosa, Folgosa and Leverinho. And the best, they offer you a discount of €537.5 per person on their usual price.

Includes 5 nights on board, meals, entertainment and insurance.

Isola Bella, Sicily


Trip to a surprise island from €199


Surprises are always appreciated. But in this case more, since it is about spending the summer on a paradisiacal island. You know in advance that your destination will be an island, but you will not know its name until 2 days before departure. It could be Mallorca, Menorca, Lanzarote, Sardinia, Sicily, Crete, Santorini… The price is very tempting, since it is between €199 in September and October, and €299 in July and August.

Includes round trip flights and 2 hotel nights (you can select more days, as it suits you).

When: summer.
