Spain

Take an adventure holiday in SPAIN with World Expeditions, one of the world’s leading travel companies.


Spain is the largest of the three sovereign nations that make up the Iberian peninsula—the others are Portugal and Andorra—located in Southern Europe. To the west and to the south of Galicia, Spain borders Portugal. To the south, it borders Gibraltar and, through its cities in North Africa (Ceuta and Melilla), Morocco. To the northeast, along the Pyrenees mountain range, it borders France and the tiny principality of Andorra.

Mainland Spain is dominated by high plateaus and mountain ranges such as the Pyrenees or the Sierra Nevada. Running from these heights are several major rivers such as the Tajo, the Ebro, the Duero, the Guadiana and the Guadalquivir. Spain has a population of 42,700,000 which is predominantly made up of Roman Catholic (85%) followed by just 2% Jewish and 2% Muslim.
