Santander offers much more to your event, congress or convention. It is a city that is committed to originality, exclusivity and is always surprising when organising any type of leisure or cultural activity. At Santander Convention Bureau, we will help you to contact the top professionals from the sector who will make your event into a great occasion.

The experiences programmes designed by Santander Convention Bureau go way beyond pure entertainment. They are a way to encourage creativity, to generate culture and learning; they allow unforgettable feelings to be experienced; they put all the senses to the test with the incredible landscapes from the region, its gastronomy that charms any palate… All of them manage to make those attending feel immersed into the city of Santander, becoming part of its daily routine and its culture.

Santander Convention Bureau is 100% involved in the creation of experiences programmes to ensure that they are creative and valuable, aimed at adapting to all kinds of needs, tastes and preferences of the group and it undertakes to help throughout the entire process, from the choice of the programme to its implementation.

Do you need ideas for your incentive programme? Do you not know where to start? Don’t worry; we will work with you from the beginning, from the choice of the plan to the implementation of the programme.


Santander Master Chef
Many people believe that a city is known by its gastronomy and we completely agree. Thanks to the gastronomic incentive programmes, convention-goers may discover firsthand local produce and obviously, taste the typical dishes of the region.

You will also have the chance to discover our award-winning gastronomy in a more entertaining way, moving into the kitchen and trying to make your own ‘cocido montañés’ or mountain stew.

If our region is characterised by something, it is for having one of the most delicious, best known gastronomies in Spain. You will fall in love with it from the first dish you taste.


Cantabrian beer, gin and wines are finding their own place on the market. Many of the companies devoted to preparing these drinks offer visits to their factories and cellars, allowing visitors to discover their preparation process, the effort involved and of course, enjoying the end result.

Actividades Acuáticas

Discover one of the best bays in the world
The bay of Santander, as well as the rivers located around the different points of Cantabria, are ideal for water sports-lovers, not only due to the variety of activities that can be carried out on their waters, but also due to the beauty of the places there they are carried out.

We have alternatives for all tastes: sailing, surfing, canoeing, paddle surf… You choose the activity you prefer.


Disconnect with our routes
Excursions are the ideal activity to discover the region in a fun way. Many companies offer these types of packages adapted to the needs and tastes of each group. Submerge yourself in our region and discover its green valleys, its cliffs, its white mountains…


Journey between the sea and the mountains
For nature-lovers, there is an option that involves discovering the countryside of Cantabria through its routes, and therefore exploring some landscapes that will leave nobody unmoved.


Journey to the past
Cantabria is the home to ten caves that are declared World Heritage Sites, which turns it into the ideal destination for those who want to travel to the past and discover how our ancestors lives in the most impressive archaeological sites.

Santander is an ideal place to hold conventions, not only as it is completely equipped for holding any type of event, but also because it offers a wide, varied range of post-convention activities that include sports such as golf or sailing, enjoying long bike rides along the seafront promenade or attending many cultural or artistic proposals that are held in the different spaces around the city.

Added to all of this is an extensive offer of museums and culture that complement a wide variety of shopping areas, bars and restaurants to try the local cuisine and areas to enjoy the Santander nightlife.
