School Group Trips: Spanish Language and Culture in San Sebastian

San Sebastian is a beautiful location in the Basque Country in the north of Spain. With a small population of approximately 180,000 inhabitants, wonderful beaches and stunning hill-top views, it is the ideal place to bring a Spanish language school trip – the city is safe, easy to navigate around, people are friendly and everything is easily accessible.

  • Duration: Flexible
  • Start dates: Any date all year round
  • Cost: Subject to duration, number of pupils/leaders, accommodation, and content

“Everything went super smoothly and the school could not have been more helpful to us and the students.  The families were all great and we had no problematic situations nor unhappy students. The icing on the cake was the great weather which enabled the students to enjoy the beautiful city”.
