Top 5 Trips: For the Love of Art

With each new region comes new art to explore whether it’s one-of-a-kind architecture or a kingdom of mosaics. Here are our top 5 trips for those who seek out beauty and art around the world.

Trek Travel Costa Brava Cycling Vacation

Costa Brava

While the landscape itself will take your breath away, you’ll also have the chance to visit the Castell de Dalí, a renovated medieval castle and gift from Costa Brava-born artist Salvador Dalí to his wife, Gala. It infuses Salvador Dalí’s creativity right down to the finest details and its goal was to provide Gala with a quiet and secluded place. Over time it also became Salvador Dalí’s last studio and finally the mausoleum of his muse.


Take a stroll through Fusterlandia, the home of Cuban artist Jose Fuster (“the Picasso of the Caribbean”), whose artistic mission is to transform his community through a kingdom of mosaic creations. Started 20 years ago and now an ongoing project, Fusterlandia covers several suburban blocks of fantastical public art that you have to see to believe.

Trek Travel California Wine Country Cycling Vacation

California Wine Country

Not only known for its wineries and lush vineyards, California is also home to an abundant art culture, with galleries seemingly on every corner featuring local artists and one-of-a-kind pieces that’ll make you wish you brought an extra suitcase.

Trel Travel New Mexico Cycling Vacation

New Mexico

In the small town of Abiquiú you can explore the historic plaza galleries and museum, check out Bode’s eclectic General Store, or (with advanced reservations) take a tour of Georgia O’Keeffe’s home and studio.

Trek Travel Palm Springs Cycling Vacation

Palm Springs

Take a 90-minute cycling tour of some of Palm Springs most beautiful and architecturally significant houses.
