Articles Announcing Season Six (in three lengths):

Rick Steves' Europe Sixth Season is Ready for Take-Off [722 words]

This October, Rick Steves and his crew wrap up a two-year project, releasing a new series of Rick Steves' Europe,with 11 half-hour episodes ranging from Estonia to Bosnia-Herzegovina to Morocco.

The series includes four episodes on Spain, three on the former Yugoslavia, and four on Nordic Europe. In Spain, programs include Córdoba & Granada, Andalucía with Gibraltar and Tangier (in Morocco), Basque Country, and Galicia (northwest Spain, the Camino de Santiago, and Running of the Bulls). Covering the best of the former Yugoslavia, Steves dedicates episodes to Slovenia, Croatia, and one venturing from Dubrovnik into Bosnia-Herzegovina and Montenegro. Then, heading into Europe's far north, programs feature stately Stockholm, striking Oslo, the lavish beauty of Norway's fjord country, and a final episode on Helsinki and Tallinn in Estonia.

The new series of Rick Steves' Europe celebrates cultures that embrace life on their terms by sharing the complex stories of resilient peoples: The Basque Country, home to the fiercely independent Basques, is a "nation without a state" wedged between France and Spain. In rugged Galicia, Spaniards play bagpipes and Riverdance meets flamenco. In Bosnia-Herzegovina, the cultural tectonic plates of Christendom and Islam rub, making peace a constant challenge. And in Estonia, less than a million people stand strong between the behemoth cultures of Germany and Russia--owing the amazing survival of the local culture to their secret weapon...song.

In Season Six, festivals enliven travel television. It's a Holy Year in Galicia, and pilgrims gather under a garbage can-sized incense burner swinging from the cathedral rafters in Santiago de Compostela. We survive the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona and share witness to the intoxicating mix of religiosity and revelry in Córdoba, as flamenco dancers glistening in sweat and carnations construct towering crosses. From the rooftop of Oslo's marble opera house, packed with jazz aficionados, to candle-toting pilgrims remembering a miraculous Madonna in Zagreb, we connect with cultures via their festivals.

With the vivid power of high-definition television, exploring the natural wonders will leave you gasping for breath. From a speedboat tour of Norway's fjords, to hiking through the misty waterfall wonderland of the Plitvice Lakes in Croatia, to sailing Stockholm's vast, hedonistic, and graceful archipelago, to tracking breathtaking kite-surfers zipping into the Atlantic in southern Spain, all this action will certainly burn off calories.

And, because food is culture, this series comes with lots of calories. We munch with Rick everywhere: savoring lefse and goat cheese in a farm hamlet stranded high above a fjord in the west of Norway, slurping fish in a Tangier market, and devouring deluxe cream cakes in Slovenia, gourmet tapas of San Sebastián, and lingonberry-drenched reindeer in Sweden.

But as you know, it's people who carbonate your travel experience. Anyone can see Europe, but to experience it with European friends — that's what distinguishes Rick Steves' Europe. Join Rick as he cruises the Oslofjord with not so distant relatives, learns about neighborhood challenges from a Muslim convert in Granada, follows pilgrims on the Camino de Santiago trail, struggles to understand the horrors of war from a woman who lived through the siege of Mostar, sweats with a Finn in a Helsinki sauna, and gets a bearded take on things from an Orthodox priest in Bosnia's Serbian Republic.

Culture communicates through art, and this new series is heavy on artistic surprises. It winds its way from the embroidery woven over 25 years by a woman using her own hair in a Montenegrin island church, to Munch's expressionistic Scream, to "naive" peasant art collected in Zagreb, to the dazzling reminders of Al-Andalus (Spain's Moorish civilization), and to the fish-scale whimsy of Gehry's Guggenheim modern-art museum in Bilbao.

Stow away with Rick's crew to experience a vivid and tactile Europe — crossing treacherous bridges in vast Slovenian caves, hearing angry hoofs on Pamplona cobbles as drunken fools scramble for their very lives, stirring saffron into a massive paella with a shovel on a Costa del Sol beach, and locking eyes with sultry Gypsy musicians. You'll experience it all, from lightning-quick jai alai hits in French Basque Country, to lazy soccer on the beach in Morocco, to prancing show stallions in Jerez.

Hold onto your castanets. You've got a thrilling and vivid dose of travel thrills coming your way on the new series of Rick Steves' Europe. (Airing Mondays at 8pm, starting October XX on KXXX)

Host Biography

Rick Steves advocates smart, affordable, perspective-broadening travel. As host and writer of the popular public television series Rick Steves' Europe, and best-selling author of over 50 European travel books, he encourages Americans to travel as "temporary locals." He helps American travelers connect much more intimately and authentically with Europe — and Europeans — for a fraction of what mainstream tourists pay.

Over the past 20 years, Rick has hosted over 100 travel shows for public television, and numerous pledge specials (raising millions of dollars for local stations). His Rick Steves' Europe TV series is carried by over 300 stations, reaching 95 percent of U.S. markets. Rick has also created two award-winning specials for public television: Rick Steves' European Christmas and the ground-breaking Rick Steves' Iran. Rick writes and co-produces his television programs through his company, Back Door Productions.

Rick Steves also hosts a weekly public radio program, Travel with Rick Steves. With a broader approach to travel everywhere, in each hour-long program Rick interviews guest travel expert, followed by listener call-ins. Travel with Rick Steves airs across the country and has spawned a popular podcast. Rick has also created a series of audio walking tour podcasts for museums and neighborhoods in Paris, Rome, Florence, Venice, London and Athens.

Rick self-published the first edition of his travel skills book, Europe Through the Back Door (now updated annually), in 1980. He has also written more than 50 other country, city and regional guidebooks, phrase books, and "snapshot" guides. For several years, Rick Steves' Italy has been the bestselling international guidebook sold in the U.S. In 2009, Rick tackled a new genre of travel writing with Travel as a Political Act, reflecting on how a life of travel has broadened his own perspectives, and travel can be a significant force for peace and understanding in the world. Rick's books are published by Avalon Travel, a member of the Perseus Books Group.

In addition to his guidebooks, TV and radio work, Rick is a syndicated newspaper columnist with the Tribune Media Services. He appears frequently on television, radio, and online as the leading authority on European travel.

Rick took his first trip to Europe in 1969, visiting piano factories with his father, a piano importer. By the time he reached 18, Rick jokes, "I realized I didn't need my parents to travel!" He began traveling on his own, funding his trips by teaching piano lessons. In 1976, he started Europe Through the Back Door (ETBD), a business which has grown from a one-man operation to a company with a well-traveled staff of 80 full-time employees. ETBD offers free travel information through its travel center, website, European Railpass Guide, and free travel newsletters. ETBD also runs a successful European tour program with more than 450 departures — attracting around 12,000 travelers — annually.

Rick is outspoken on the need for Americans to fit better into our planet by broadening their perspectives through travel. He is also committed to his own neighborhood. He's an active member of the Lutheran church (and has hosted the ELCA's national video productions). He's a board member of NORML (The National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws). And Rick has provided his local YWCA with a 24-unit apartment building with which to house homeless mothers.

Rick Steves spends about a third of every year in Europe, researching guidebooks, filming TV shows, and making new discoveries for travelers. Rick was divorced in March, 2010. He lives and works in his hometown of Edmonds, Washington, where his office window overlooks his old junior high school.

Program Information:

Rick' Season Six includes one 60-minute special and 11 half-hour episodes.

Rick Steves' Andalucía: The Best of Southern Spain (60-minutes) #601

This 60-minute special weaves the region's rich mix of culture, cuisine, history, and natural wonders into a 60-minute special. The hour includes the major cites of Sevilla, Córdoba, and Granada; flamenco, sherry, and horses; dramatic white-washed hilltowns; and fun in the Costa del Sol sun — plus a dash of Britain in Gibraltar.

Croatia: Adriatic Delights (30-minutes) #602

A fascinating land with a hard-fought history in a complex corner of Europe, Croatia is emerging as one of Europe's top destinations. Sampling the very best of Croatia, we start by exploring the fabled Dalmatian Coast from dramatic Dubrovnik to crusty Adriatic island ports. Heading inland, we hike through Plitvice Lakes National Park and enjoy the thriving capital city Zagreb. Our Croatian finale: the Istrian Peninsula and its enchanting port town of Rovinj.

Dubrovnik and Balkan Side-Trips (30-minutes) #603

Nestled inside its mighty ramparts is Dubrovnik, the "Pearl of the Adriatic." From this remarkably preserved medieval fortress city, we venture into less-touristed corners of the former Yugoslavia. In Bosnia, we visit Mostar — war-torn in the 90s, but bursting with promise today. In Montenegro, we sail the fjord-like Bay of Kotor and explore its mysterious, mountainous interior.

The Best of Slovenia (30-minutes) #604

Little Slovenia is the least visited and most underrated of Europe's alpine countries. From its prosperous capital of Ljubljana, we enjoy the mountain resort of Lake Bled, venture into the Julian Alps for natural thrills mixed with World War I history, go spelunking in a gigantic cave, and swim with Slavs in a charming Adriatic port.

Granada, Cordoba, and Spain's Costa del Sol (30-minutes) #605

Andalucía's Moorish heritage sparkles in the historic capitals of Granada and Cordoba. And the pride of the Reconquista and the power of Queen Isabel and King Ferdinand enliven the region's great sights. Tasting the smooth sherry and marveling at prancing stallions, we find the passion in  Andalucían culture. And we top it off with fun in the Spanish sun on the Costa del Sol.

Andalucía, Gibraltar and Tangier (30-minutes) #606

Exploring Andalucía, we experience the quintessence of Spanish culture. Starting up high, in Spain's whitewashed hill towns, we roll down to the coast to enjoy the windsurfing mecca of Tarifa. Then we catch a bit of Britain on the Rock of Gibraltar, and sail to Africa for a Moroccan finale in Tangier.

Oslo (30-minutes) #607

The proud spirit of the Norwegian people shines in every dimension of their capital city—from its once-fearsome Viking ships to its sleek new Opera House, from tales of World War II heroism to the constant festival of its thriving harborfront. Connecting with the culture, we enjoy art—from Vigeland's statues to Monch's scream—and cap things off by joining local friends for a sail on their fjord.

Norway's West: Fjords, Mountains and Bergen (30-minutes) #608

For Scandinavia's most thrilling sightseeing, we sail under towering fjord cliffs, hike on powerful glaciers, and find surviving traditions in remote farm hamlets. Then we delve into the Hanseatic heritage and enjoy the salty hospitality of Norway's historic capitol, Bergen.

Stockholm (30-minutes) #609

Sweden's capital, confident and self-assured, glitters with souvenirs from the day when it ruled as a superpower. From pondering gilded royal staterooms to sampling gourmet reindeer and sipping vodka in an ice bar, we experience the city's cultural highlights. Then we sail the archipelago for the prettiest island-hopping in northern Europe.

Helsinki and Tallinn: Baltic Sisters (30-minutes) #610

The fascinating capitals of Finland and Estonia offer a chance to sample each country's history, art, and distinct love of life. We'll start in Helsinki with its Neoclassical old town, modern flair for design, and steamy saunas. Then it's just a two-hour boat ride to Tallinn—with its medieval charms and new-found prosperity—celebrating its freedom and thriving in its post-USSR renaissance.

Galicia and the Camino de Santiago (30-minutes) #611

We follow the trail pilgrims have trod for centuries, from the French border to Santiago de Compostela in the northwest corner of Spain. Along the way, we stop off in Pamplona to run with the bulls, and dive into the unique Celtic culture of Galicia — where Riverdance meets flamenco.

Basque Country (30-minutes) #612

The homeland of the proud and resiliant Basque people is split between France and Spain. From our San Sebastián home base, we tour the ancient Basque capital of Gernika, the dazzling Guggenheim Modern in Bilbao, and then cross into France for more Basque Country charms. From yummy tapa bars to lightning-fast jai alai games, we'll experience Basque culture at its most vivid.
