Agriturismo Galicia

Nowadays, we rarely give attention to one of our basic human needs - nature connection. We are Earth creatures and we are supposed to have a connection with our roots. We used to live off the land - extract our own dairy products and eat our own crops, and what better way to take care of our connection with nature, than to go on an Agriturismo holiday in Galicia. This region is a historic region of Spain, which includes, but is not limited to the northwestern provinces, which are known for their Agricultural paradise-like characteristics. Take a step back, and return to your roots by getting to know the region of Galicia and it’s wonderful agricultural opportunities.

Return to your roots

Galicia offers a terrain consisting of varied hillsides and elevated landscapes, and more than half its area is 400 (or more) meters above the sea. Temperatures and rainfall vary across the region - close to the coast, temperatures average between 8 to 10 degrees Celsius during the winter and rise up to 25 in summer. Moving away from the coast, the weather becomes warmer and drier and in the south of Galicia the temperatures can be much warmer in the summer.

The terrain and weather call for animal farming over flora cultivation. Most agriturismo Galicia places are cosy, small farms, which tend to grow potatoes and corn among the other crops. When it comes to livestock, cattle are among the leading animals which are grown. On the mountainside farms, a genuine amount of pine is produced, and sawmills are widespread. Apart from the traditional and more wide-spread agricultural activities, the port of Vigo is one of Spain’s leading fishing ports and fish processing is of particular importance for the region.

Such down-to-earth places are the perfect example of a human-nature connection. It is a fact that people living in the countryside, in farms or smaller establishments are happier. Many wonder why and take wild guesses, like wrongfully thinking that the farm life is easy, which is ridiculously invalid. People who live off the land have to take care of everything by themselves. Their daily routines start early in the morning and end late in the evening. Imagine waking up every day, as soon as the rooster sings.

The calm and easy surrounding environment is getting ready to sing it’s day-long symphony, consisting of three acts - morning, day and evening. As you get ready to take part in that synchronous performance, you feel how you’ve genuinely connected with nature. Your routine is filled with a sense of purpose, which is the key ingredient for happiness.

Farm Activities

As you may have already guessed, the main farmside activities would be taking up the daily tasks required to keep the farmin establishments running. Try different activities, such as taking care of the gardens, walking through the fruit tree isles, follow hiking routes that lead from farm to farm, or even ride a farm-grown horse. Additionally, you may always explore the marine life near the coastline, climb the mountain tops and gaze at the wonder of the beautiful nature. All of these would only add up to the human-nature connection that you will feel on your Agriturismo Galicia trip.
