BASQUE COUNTRY HIKING TOUR
Therefore, the Basque Country, locally called Euskadi in Euskara, the Basque language, is famous for its world class cuisine and charismatic culture. The region is very closely tied to its traditional fishing and farming past, but also has strong links with the more recent industrial era. It also boasts some modern icons, such as the Guggenheim museum for contemporary art.
The Basque Country is a land of contrast, where it is possible to drive in only two hours from the rugged coast of the Atlantic Ocean in the Bay of Biscay, through the Alpine limestone Basque mountains, to the flat wine plains of the Rioja Alavesa, in the most southern tip. We will experience the full range of this diversity during our trip.
This customized eight-day tour aims to provide you with the experience of hiking along those mountains that have inspired so many mountaineers, and to explore the nature as well as the inherent culture, tradition, and modern aspects of the region. During the tour we will use English speaking guides, who will introduce you to the real Basque feeling, and allow you to discover the most unique places.
