Spark offers tours with full board, half board or just bed & breakfast options. We recommend choosing the full board option, which provides the school group with all needed meals throughout each day. This not only takes away the hassle from a planning perspective, but also allows for more time in the programme to spend on other activities. As from our experience, an organized meal is generally a lot faster than when students have to work out their own food 🙂 .
Breakfast is served in the residence in the case of residential tours, or is provided by the host family for students in a homestay programme.
Lunch is a packed lunch that can be taken on the excursion, city trip or activity.
Dinner is again either served in the residence or by the host family, depending on the students’ lodging and is generally the warm meal of the day.
Spark’s meal service can be adapted to dietary wishes and allergies, including vegetarian, pescetarian, vegan, lactose-intolerant, gluten-free and halal diets among others.
Spark’s tips and recommendations
- Include a BBQ as one of the evening meals. Spark arranges everything, including the cooking of the food on our very own barbecue on our rooftop terrace and students love this unique experience, especially on the very first or last day of their trip!
- A tapas night out: students get a chance to not only experience what tapas are but the great cultural concept of sharing food in the middle and also get to try some authentic dishes from the area.
- A paella cooking lesson: a typical Spanish dish cooked by the students themselves is not only a great meal but also an excellent cultural activity that allows the students to learn something completely new and different.
- Churros con chocolate: no visit to Spain is complete without these interesting but delicious fried dough sticks dipped in hot chocolate! Ask us to include this second breakfast on one of your trip days!
