Tour Details
Home » Tours » Spain » 7 days to discover and taste the Basque Country, Spain

Although on a map we see the Basque Country as a small territory, the richness of its culture lies in the large diversity it offers. Located in the north of Spain, on the border with France, it is composed by different regions with a strong personality. All of these regions stand out for different reasons, and all of them share at the same time some important resources, like the Basque gastronomy.

The aim of this tour is to give a global accessible experience on the Basque Country. We will give you the opportunity to discover the famous city of San Sebastián, and his singular mixture of modern and traditional gastronomy. Also, you’ll visit the hidden places of Bilbao and the worldwide known Guggenheim Museum.

Aside the capitals, you will enjoy a different landscape visiting beautiful villages of the French Basque Country. However, you’ll continue tasting the best local products on this area, where the gastronomy is also spectacular.

Once more, you’ll change to another ambience visiting the Rioja region, globally known for producing the best wines of Spain. On this territory the landscape is totally different and the villages you will visit offers another charisma. Visiting local wineries is essential and we offer you the opportunity of doing a degustation with an expert.

You can enjoy all the best of the Basque Country on this 7 day tour.
