Barcelona - a special look
Go to Barcelona and we can promise you that the proud Basques of Northern Spain will make your stay unforgettable. Complimenting the welcoming spirit of it’s people is the beauty of of this city where the parks, the museums and the architecture come together in perfect harmony.

And if that is not enough, one of world soccer’s shrines is in Barcelona. Camp Neu the home of Barcelona FC, one of the greatest soccer clubs in the world. When travelling one must taste the local cuisine; when in Spain one must taste tapas! Derived from the Spanish verb ‘tapar’ which means ‘to cover’, tapas is a variety of small snacks taken between meals which, when combined, can be a colourful and delicious supper on its own. If you have not tried tapas, there is no better time to put that right.
Salted cod anyone?
You are also likely to catch the aroma of a very special seafood dish, a Catalan bacallà, Spanish for salt cod. Bacallà is one of Spain’s national dishes and cooked in many ways, depending on where in the country you are. This particular seafood has a certain extra appeal for Icelanders, as the cod used in the dish is caught in the North Atlantic, in Icelandic waters, by Icelandic fishermen.
