Experience all Spain has to Offer!

Mountains in Spain

Spain is known for its culturally diverse heritage, having been influenced by many nations and peoples throughout its history. Through this program students have the opportunity to explore Spain’s majestic northern coast in the region of Cantabria, while perfecting their Spanish. The University of Cantabria is located in the city of Santander, a port and resort town on the northern coast of Spain. It is the capital of the Autonomous Region of Cantabria, one of Spain’s “green” provinces. Nestled in the north of the Iberian Peninsula amongst the communities of Castile and Leon, Asturias and the Basque Country, it is located on the Bay of Biscay. Cantabria is well connected by all means of transportation to the rest of Spain and Europe. Surrounded by beautiful beaches, Santander is also very near the Cantabrian Mountain Range, which includes the picturesque “Peaks of Europe.” The location allows for a mild, year round climate for various outdoor activities. Students can take advantage of the mountains while hiking or horseback riding and the sea while wind surfing or canoeing.
