Wine & Senses project

On March 14, Vitoria presented the Wine & Senses project. An initiative that aims to boost tourism in four European rural wine regions and generate tourism circuits.

The plan brings together different entities and companies from Spain, Italy, Hungary, Portugal and the Czech Republic. This collaboration is in order to make the vitivinicultural heritage a protagonist. The Santa María la Real Foundation presented this initiative in the framework of the “International Wine Tourism Conference”.

The main objective of Wine & Senses is to design routes combine heritage, landscape, history and gastronomy. All this with wine as the axis so the visitor can enjoy it with all the senses.

Routes that turn each itinerary into a true sensory experience for the traveler and away from mass tourism. Also, betting on a sustainable enjoyment of the territories, with hiking activities, guided tastings, musical performances or guided visits.

The experience of living in Mars

The experience of living in Mars, starting this summer in Cantabria for the very first time.

The arrival to Mars will begin next June in Arredondo. Astroland has developed the necessary technology to this simulation. A cave simulates the same living conditions on the red planet. As a result, they have created a scientific-tourist experience never seen before.

They will held the first mission on June 15 and they will select 10 candidates. They have to meet three requirements, certainly, be of legal age, be in good physical shape and pay 10,000 euros. So this includes a minimum stay of three days at the station. Astroland will choose only 100 people to participate in the 10 missions scheduled for 2019.

Astroland chose this cave intentionally. David Ceballos, its CEO, says about the martian environment: “is very hostile with low temperatures, strong winds and high stellar radiation, so the compatibility with human life is installed in the lava tubes or under the Martian surface. In this sense, these caves are the perfect location with greater similarities for the trials “.
