Itinerary

  • Day 1: Overnight flight to Spain

    Board your overnight flight to Spain, home of all-night fiestas, incredible food, and naps after lunch. Get some shut-eye because your life is about to get loco.

  • Day 2: Arrive in Barcelona + Welcome Dinner

    Welcome to Barcelona, a city of endless parties, wacky architecture, and premium beaches—which also happen to be where the clubs are. So throw on your walking shoes, your party pants, and any shirt you’d like. Barcelona is the fiesta that keeps on fiesta…ing.

    In the evening, enjoy a Welcome Dinner of local cuisine and drinks with fellow travelers at an authentic local spot. Afterwards, you’re free to take the party elsewhere!

    Today's highlights:

    • Meet an EF representative at the airport.
    • Transfer to your accommodation and check in.
    • Receive the latest schedule from your Tour Director.
    • Meet your fellow travelers as they arrive.
  • Day 3: Tour Barcelona + Optional Sagrada Familía Tour & Sangria

    Experience Barcelona’s unique architecture and atmosphere with a local guide as you wander the city’s enchanting streets. This historic city is home to nine UNESCO World Heritage Sites, seven of which were built by Gaudí (he’s kind of a big deal around here). Take in the impressive sites, and understand why Barcelona is the only city to receive a Royal Gold Medal for architecture—the buildings are basically art.

    Today's highlights:

    • Explore the Gothic Quarter with your guide. Don't forget your black eyeliner.
    • Visit one of Antoni Gaudí's greatest work of modernist art, Parque Güell. This colorful park is adorned with tilework, dreamlike structures and not a straight line in sight.
    • See the 1992 Olympic Park which lines the Mediterranean Sea.
    • Take the evening to revisit any of the sights, hit the beach, or explore on your own.

    Sagrada Familia & Sangria (extra cost)

    Antoni Gaudí’s Sagrada Família Basilica is the world’s most unbelievable church—under construction since 1882, finished by 2026 at the earliest. Tour it with a local guide, then enjoy included Sangria and pintxos, which are small finger snacks popular in Spain.

    This excursion is pre-book only; if your trip is less than 30 days away, please call 800-766-2645 to purchase.

  • Day 4: Enjoy a Free Day in Barcelona + Optional Barcelona Beach Day

    The day is yours to experience Barcelona as you please. Whether that means exploring a new neighborhood, lounging on a beach, or kicking back with some tapas and a pitcher of sangria, you really can’t go wrong. Feeling adventurous? Join the Stand-up Paddleboard & Beach day excursion in Sitges.

    Today's highlights:

    • Use your free day to explore more of the city with your fellow travelers.
    • Enjoy a free day to kick back, relax with a pitcher of sangria, and enjoy the beautiful weather.
    • Get your paddle on during an optional paddleboarding lesson.

    Free time suggestions

    Market Down: Visit La Boqueria, the famous market just off of Las Ramblas, with everything from fresh fruits to meats, flowers and sweets.
    Playa Long: Barcelona’s coast is lined with beaches, each with its own personality. Try party-centric Barceloneta, tranquil Caldetes or water sports at Mar Bella.

    Barcelona Beach Day & Paddleboard Lesson (extra cost)

    When in Barcelona, go the beach. Head to Barceloneta, one of the city’s most popular sandy spots to have some fun in the sun learning to paddleboard with a professional instructor and chilling on the beach. *Ability to swim is a pre-requisite for this optional*

    While this optional runs year-round, prime beach season in Barcelona is May to September. If you’re traveling outside of this period, weather conditions may vary.

    Why wait? Save money by booking this optional excursion before your trip departs.

  • Day 5: Travel to Ibiza

    Wave goodbye to Barcelona, stuff some tapas in your pockets for safe-keeping, and pop on your sunglasses. You’re headed to Ibiza! Where the sun is almost always shining, and the party literally never stops.

    Today's highlights:

    • Board your morning plane from Barcelona to Ibiza. It’s a quick flight, barely even one whole podcast long.
    • Arrive at your accommodation, and get ready for non-stop dancing, gorgeous beaches, and nightlife that is unrivaled.
    • Get the lay of the land on a walking tour of the island—it’s kind of unfair that Ibiza got all of the beauty and all of the fun of the Balearic Island family.
    • Keep an eye out for mermaids—legend has it that Ibiza is home to the mythological sirens that tried to lure Odysseus from his ship in Homer’s Odyssey.
  • Day 6: Free Day in Ibiza + Optional Catamaran Cruise

    Enjoy a free day in Ibiza to explore the beaches, the old town, or choose to keep the party going on a luxury catamaran in Ibiza’s crystal-clear waters.

    Ibiza Coast Catamaran Cruise (extra cost)

    You didn’t really think you’d go all the way to Ibiza and not rent a boat for the day, did you? Hop aboard to soak up the sun and set the onboard dance floor on fire.

    Why wait? Save money by booking this optional excursion before your trip departs.

  • Day 7: Free Day in Ibiza + Included Dinner

    Good morning, Ibiza! The settlers of this piece of paradise dedicated the island to the god of music and dance, so it’s only fitting that the island is now a hotspot for all DJ-, club-, and dance party-related things. Apart from being all about that bass, Ibiza is overflowing with vibrant nature. The island has 57 different beaches, and was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site for it’s top-of-the-line shores and sea life.

    Today's highlights:

    • Wake up again in beautiful Ibiza, and take a few minutes to convince yourself this isn’t a dream.
    • Consider investing in some of those gel shoe inserts in order to be the Most Chill person on the dance floor tonight.
    • Take the afternoon to explore on your own, or head to the beach with your group.
    • Brace yourself—you’re about to have another loco day in Ibiza, in all the best ways.
    • Enjoy an included dinner in Ibiza in the evening.

    Free time suggestions

    Uptown Traveler: Walk up to Dalt Vila, a grand fortress that sits above the town, filled with winding cobblestone streets and quaint charm that’ll have you stepping back into history.
    Sundowners: When the sun goes down in Ibiza, Café del Mar and Mambo are the places to be. With a drink in hand and the sunset in front of you, it really doesn’t get better than this.

  • Day 8: Travel to Valencia

    Your time in Ibiza has come to an end. But never fear, because you’re on your way to the coastal city of Valencia, the third largest city in Spain, home to thousands of years of history, and a zoo where they let you walk around in the freakin’ animal habitats. Take a moment upon arrival to walk down to the beach and stare longingly in the direction of Ibiza. We’ll wait. All set? Okay! It’s Valencia time.

    Today's highlights:

    • Enjoy a scenic ferry ride from Ibiza back to the coast of Spain.
    • Take a guided jaunt around town and snap some selfies in front of a few of Valencia’s most famous monuments, including Valencia Cathedral and Llotja de la Seda (a UNESCO World Heritage Site).
    • Sniff out some paella—the iconic dish of rice, spice, and everything nice was invented in Valencia.
    • Forget everything you learned in Spanish class—er, actually, maybe just expect to hear both Spanish and Valencian.
  • Day 9: Beach Day in Valencia + Farewell Dinner

    Think of a year. Now think of an older year. Now think of 138 BC. That’s when Valencia was founded by the Roman Empire. Today’s your last day to hang out in this old, old outpost and you better believe you’re going to spend it on the beach. Relax, tan, splash, and reminisce about the week you just had. Then, dig in to a farewell dinner with your fellow travelers.

    Farewell Dinner
    Share some last laughs (and maybe shed a few tears) at an included farewell dinner with the group.

    Today's highlights:

    • Prepare yourself for a lifetime of saying things like “yeah these tapas are good, but it’s not the same as they were in Spain.”
    • Head to some of Valencia’s most picturesque beaches, like La Malvarrosa, a local favorite that we would 10/10 recommend checking out.
    • Get some tan lines for your tan lines—just to make sure all your friends know you went on vacation.
    • Take advantage of one final night of the ridiculously fuego nightlife Valencia’s Barrio del Carmen neighborhood has to offer.
  • Day 10: Fly Home

    ¡Adiós, amigos!
    Translation: Goodbye friends. Your next destination awaits—home. Before you head to the airport, enjoy your last few moments together. Take one more group photo. Grab that final drink. (Fine, maybe a couple of drinks.) But this isn’t goodbye. It’s “See you later.” The only question is, where?

  • Viva la fiesta! Viva la gente!

      Roberto, traveled Sep.. 2022

    The trip was amazing and our tour director Tomas was the absolute best, most friendly person! I do wish the trip was just a little longer to enjoy more of Valencia, which felt cut short. It was by far the most beautiful of the three locations in regards to architecture. Ibiza did not disappoint either. I had no idea Ibiza was a party island when I had booked... See more

      Samantha, traveled Aug.. 2022

    I went as a solo traveler and this was my first EF trip so I was definitely anxious before takeoff. I laugh looking back now because the experience was amazing and everything I hoped for!
