Learning Spanish in La Rioja
How to get here


By Air:

Although Logroño does have an international airport, there are currently no direct flights from the UK or Ireland. However, various flights are available from the UK to Bilbao, Santander, Biarritz, Zaragoza and Madrid. The following shows the estimated travel time by car to Logroño from each airport (public transport would also be available, but you would need to allow a little more time for this):

  • Bilbao: 1 hour 20 mins
  • Santander: 2 hours 10 mins
  • Biarritz (France): 2 hours
  • Zaragoza: 2 hours 25 mins
  • Madrid Barajas: 3 hours 30 mins


By Ferry:

For those travelling by car, there are two main options:

  • Portsmouth – Santander (then a 2-hour drive down to La Rioja)
  • Cross the channel at Calais, and drive down through France. It is a good 10-hour drive, but broken up with an overnight stop, it can be quite an adventure.
