Anti-stress tourism

Spas, rural houses, open-air sports... Extremadura offers you the best ways to break with routine and get away from it all for a while.

Work, traffic, pollution, noise... If you're worn out with your daily routine or you want to disconnect from your life, activate your out-of-office and get away to Extremadura. Here you'll find the best options for dedicating a few days to yourself and leisurely enjoying everything that a region so rich in contrasts can offer you.

If you like exploring the places you visit, getting to know the people, learning about the culture and customs, taking your time and digging in, you'll be interested to know that Extremadura is currently one of the most sought-after Slow Tourism destinations. Because, furthermore, it provides an endless range of activities to help you enjoy a unique and different experience.

 You can follow some of its trails. The gastronomy ones, on the region's ham and wines, are really interesting. But there are many more trails that can help you to wind down and feel the present in a healthy way. Travelling around the regions of Extremadura, soaking up its history and culture, the flavour of its cuisine, the warmth of its people, is something that you can't put a price on.

But if what you need is a relaxing bath, to be looked after and spoiled, then you'll find a made-to-measure paradise in Extremadura as it has seven spas where you can enjoy thermal waters and the latest treatments. They have been proven to have medicinal properties. Besides, some of them have history so you can submerge yourself in other civilisations as you relax in their waters, as with the Roman Thermal Baths in Alange and the Montemayor Baths. You will also find El Salugral and Jerte Valley amongst the valleys and hills and the San Gregorio Baths, Fuentes del Trampal and El Raposo hidden in the middle of the dehesa.

If what you like are open-air activities, like playing golf, Extremadura makes it easy for you – because it also has seven golf courses where you can take advantage of the time between hole and hole to watch the birds that soar through the Extremadura skies.

And when you are looking at where to stay, you can choose from estates where you can practise agro-tourism, staying at a spa hotel, sleeping in one of Extremadura's lodgings with charm, settling into a cosy country house...

Because anything you plan to do in Extremadura will make you forget to watch the clock.
