Why take the ferry to northern Spain?
So many people don’t realise that there is another way to Spain beyond a plane trip, or that travelling to Spain can be so much more comfortable than a seat on a crowded aeroplane! Here are just a few great reasons why you should consider taking the ferry with Brittany Ferries to northern Spain.
Your holiday starts on board
Forget busy check-in lounges and cramped aeroplane seating. Travelling by ferry means quicker check-in times, loads to do on board and lots of space to move about. You can even sit down to a delicious freshly-cooked meal or enjoy a breath of bracing sea air out on deck.
Start your holiday in the relaxed way that you want to continue the rest of your holiday. On Brittany Ferries’ Spanish crossings, you’ll have a day and night on board so there’s plenty of time to explore the brilliant facilities – boutique shops, à la carte and self-service restaurants, kids’ play areas… there’s even swimming pools and spa rooms on some ships and a wealth of entertainment in the summer months.
Enjoy a cosy en suite cabin to ensure you get a good night’s sleep and arrive refreshed in Spain and ready for your onward adventure.
Take your own car and everything you need
Drive on, drive off. In your own car that you’ve packed up with everything you need to make your holiday special. It’s that simple.
All the family’s mountain bikes, surfboards, golf clubs – all these things can come with you so you don’t have to hire when you get there.
Get closer to your destination – and what a destination northern Spain is!
Sail from two ports on England’s south coast – Plymouth and Portsmouth – to two destinations in northern Spain – Santander and Bilbao. Destinations in the Basque Country, Cantabria, Galicia, Asturias and Castilla y Leon are all just a drive away in beautiful surroundings.
