Thank you very much for taking your time to visit our website.


Spaniens-Nichen is a Spanish incoming agency founded by Niels W. Petersen in the year 2000. We have been working since then preparing cultural and sightseeing tours all over Spain for the Scandinavian market. Danny Rae Mathias, a good friend of Niels', joined Spaniens-Nichen in 2006 to promote our well established itineraries to the British and Irish markets.


We take great care of all our customers and really go the extra mile to make them feel at home. All our tour managers live locally and are very knowledgeable and passionate about Spain. This feeling is conveyed to our visitors so they get to experience the "real" Spain. Our customers get an insight into the history, culture, traditions, cuisine and many other aspects of this special country. We have also recently incorporated Portugal as a destination; its proximity, cultural and historical backgrounds are closely linked to those in Spain and indeed complement each other very well. 


Apart from our cultural and sightseeing packages, we also have a number of hiking holidays in different parts of our geography to suit all walking levels, from relaxed rambling to reaching the higher peaks of our beautiful mountain ranges, all of them undertaken by fully licensed and insured professional walking guides.


Our itineraries are innovative and we cover the whole of the Iberian Peninsula, as well as the Balearics, the Canaries, Andorra and the south of France. We have a number of tried and tested tours and we are always looking to liaise with our clients to tailor make new and exciting holidays.


Although we work with a good number of tour operators from Denmark, United Kingdom, Ireland and USA, and operate a great number of tours annually, in essence we still remain a family run business where the personal touch is very important to us. The feedback we get is excellent as well as very helpful and encouraging, and we get many repeat customers year after year.


We hope we can work with you and be your partner here in Spain so we can help you to get to know our well loved country.

Pilgrimages: over the centuries, different faiths have established themselves or passed by this land. There are a number of pilgrimages that can be taken, the most popular being the historic Camino de Santiago (St. James’ Way), in its many variations. We can help your customers along the way, creating the ideal pilgrimage for them, with as much walking and history as your clients may want.

Walking and hiking holidays: The Iberian Peninsula is an area of very varied landscapes. Spain in fact is one of the most mountainous regions of Europe. For this reason, there are endless opportunities for rambling, walking or hiking in many parts of the country. We have a number of tried and tested itineraries and we are happy to work with you in creating the ideal walking holiday. Our guides are all qualified and insured and have the necessary experience, apart from being great guys.

Golfing holidays: Spain and Portugal offer excellent weather all year around. This allows golfers to enjoy the beautiful courses and the sun at times when this would be impossible further north in Europe. We organise golf packages for groups and make the whole experience easier. Your customers just have to bring over their best swings!

MICE: Spain and Portugal offer a great number of destinations for the corporate travel. Different cities and resorts have hotels that specialise in this sector and all that goes with it: convention centres, meeting halls, beautiful open spaces, locations for all types of events, team-building activities and anything  your client may need. At Spaniens-Nichen we have a dedicated department which will help your company to organise an excellent break for your corporate partners. 


Cultural activities: our area has a great wealth of interesting historic and cultural sites which we take into account when planning a tour.

City breaks: there are a number of attractive cities in Spain and Portugal in which we can prepare city breaks for your customers: Barcelona, Madrid, Lisbon, Oporto, Seville, Valencia, Malaga, Bilbao and many more.

Wine tours: The Iberian Peninsula has been producing excellent wines since the times of the Phoenicians. We can get an insight into this important part of the Mediterranean diet by visiting wineries in different parts of the country: La Rioja, Oporto, Jerez (Sherry), Penedès (Cava) just to name a few. The visits can go from simple guided tours of the “bodegas” to participating in pressing the grapes or even making your own wine!

Gastronomic tours: Spain and Portugal have a fine culinary reputation; using excellent local produce (we are the “garden” of Europe in that respect), locally sourced fresh fish and meats, combined with the use of olive oil, and the influence of Greeks, Romans, Moors, French etc makes this a very important part of our culture. We can organise tours where you will experience the eateries that the locals use; from hidden little tapas bars to high end restaurants and all inbetween.
