Full description

The Basque Coast is a wild and natural place, full of tradition and good gastronomy. Join us to discover it!

The tour begins at 09:00 am from the center of Bilbao to direct us to the industrial towns of Barakaldo, Sestao, and Portugalete.

Once in the town of Getxo, we reach the famous Hanging Bridge (El Puente Colgante). Built in 1893, it is the oldest bridge of its kind, and one of the main monuments of the Industrial Revolution. There, we will make a short stop for those who want to climb this magnificent bridge. Let yourself be surprised by the amazing views!

Then, we will pass through the imposing Castle Butron. Of 45 meters high, this castle has a true fairy-tale feeling. Observe its architecture, details, and the exotic forest that surrounds it. It seems out of a book of medieval tales

From here we head for the coast to San Juan de Gaztelugatxean islet on the coast of Biscay. See the beautiful chapel (hermitage) clinging to a rock and surrounded by the sea. This island was scenery for the famous show Games of Thrones - remember the Dragonstone? Well, this is the place!

We will continue along the coast to the typical fishing village of Bermeo, where we stop for a walking tour of the city center.

Then get up the coast to Mundaka, internationally renowned for its surfing scene. In fact, Mundaka has a great connection to Nature: located on the north end of the Biosphere Reserve of Urdaibai, an extraordinarily beautiful and varied natural area, with breathtaking views!

Before leaving the Basque Coast, we have another surprise for you: let's follow the trail to reach the emblematic town of Gernika! You may know this town for being Picasso's inspiration for his "Guernica" painting. There, we can visit the famous Opera House and the Gernikako Arbola (the Tree of Gernika), an Oak tree that symbolizes traditional freedoms for the Biscayan people. Just unforgettable!

We return at about 14h00. Please note that the tour includes several walking tours.
