Donostia-San Sebastian, Gipuzkoa and the entire Basque Country, in Northern Spain, are a land of wonders and the place for a holiday where you can really choose a hundred activities, from sport to culture, from food to nature, and the number of accessible places and activities is incredible.
The Basque have always been travellers and innovators, they have a history of discovery (the Americas before Columbus too!) and they have crossed the seas, bringing back the best to their country and to Europe.
So now it’s our turn to explore their land and culture, and to get ready for an accessible adventure with Bask for All, a specialized local tour operator that will get you speaking Euskera (the Basque language) and tasting Pintxos (the local – mouthwatering – food masterpieces) in no time.
Bask for All is located in San Sebastián, they are highly specialized in the organization of adapted trips in the Basque region for travellers with different special needs.
They love sports, and they have the best accessible sport activities for you: surf, kayak, horse riding, golf… but after you’ll be hungry, so they can get you some special foodie treats, a wine adventure in the famous La Rioja region, or a pintxos tour, cooking classes, Michelin Star Experience restaurants, visit to cider houses. You won’t lose weight on this trip for sure!
The Basque Country is a region famous for its museums and stunning architecture, both traditional and contemporary (think Guggenheim Bilbao, just to quote one): our friends at Bask for All can offer day tours, visits to museums and nature trails for all needs.
You can ask them for a full package (accomodation, transport, activities) or choose one or more activities to complement your trip. You can also rely on them if you need advice while on the go: they are advocates for improving accessibility in the region, consulting with local institutions to make life easier for everyone, every day.
The Basque Country is a region that has invested on accessibility: the benefits are equally enjoyable by the residents and by visitors with special needs. The main cities, San Sebastiàn and Bilbao, have been adapted to allow people in wheelchairs to move freely and public transport is well equipped, as are the airports and the connections from the airports into the cities.
There are still steps to go in some shops and restaurants, and cobblestone pavements in some parts of the historical centres, however this represents only a portion of what there is to see and in general the Basque accessible experience is reviewed as a very positive one.
Museums and parks are also very well equipped, often designed or re-designed in recent years for inclusion, with content available in many forms, making this area highly enjoyable for people with different special needs.
There are two airports in the Basque Country and both are very well equipped for special mobility needs with modern features, ramps, escalators and accessible restrooms: a seamless experience is assured in the Bilbao Airport and the airport in San Sebastian (EAS).
