Valladolid: What to do when you get there?

Less than two hours away from Madrid, the cosmopolitan capital of Spain, Valladolid is the administrative capital of Castile and León and a city known for its classy, sophisticated vibe and gorgeous architecture.

A two-hour drive from Madrid will take you to western Spain. Right in the heart of the Autonomous Region of Castile and León, Valladolid is located between the Pisuegra and Esgueva rivers. Its history goes back to Roman times and is home to five winegrowing regions: Ribera del Duero, Rueda, Toro, Tierra de León, and Cigales.

Valladolid played a prominent role in the history of Spain and has been since always a city with an adventurous energy surrounding it. Fernando de Magallanes, the famous explorer, came here to discuss his navigation plans and it was also Christopher Columbus last home. Maybe that explorer’s energy still flows through the narrow streets!

Valladolid has a continental climate with cold winters and hot summers, its average temperatures throughout the year are 16°C maximum and 6°C minimum, you can’t expect much rain except for the rainy season in autumn and spring, which makes the region for outdoor activities.

Since Valladolid has such cultural and architectural wealth, many adventurers come to explore this amazing city from the skies. Right on the outer skirts of the city, paragliding and paramotoring flights take off and give adrenaline junkies their fix while contemplating the vineyards and the historic heritage of when Valladolid was the capital of Spain. If you prefer more laid back options, hop on a hot air balloon with your partner, family or friends.

The bolder might consider skydiving at the Matilla de Los Caños aerodrome in Tordesillas just outside Valladolid city. There you will be able to experience the ultimate adrenaline experience over the Douro River, keep an eye open for the Doña Juana Palace Plaza!

If you rather stay on land, mountain bike excursions are also available to discover the many wineries in the region, what an amazing experience it must be to ride among endless fields of grapes maturing!

Valladolid is a charming traditional Spanish city, yet its outdoor offer allows you unconventional experiences!
