Trip Information

This new two-wheeled journey along the Basque coast offers a sumptuous insight into this fabulous region. Discover the culture and history of this proud region with its world-renowned gastronomy, unique language and their bond with the ocean.
You’ll visit two awesome Basque cities, from beginning in the hard-working, hard-partying post-industrial Bilbao with the fabulous Guggenheim museum, regenerated riverside and bustling old quarter, to finishing in the sophisticated, bourgeois seaside resort of San Sebastian, with elegant avenidas, pintxo, a perfect old quarter and some of the best restaurants in Europe.
Between these gems, the cycling eases its way through the emerald green, eucalyptus-clad coastal region, overnighting at ancient, picturesque fishing villages, passing Txakolina wineries and inviting estuaries.
Along the way, discovering Basque cuisine is an assault of the senses. Eating is a serious business where only the very best produce will be used. Whether it is the catch of the day with the freshest vegetables, high quality meats or sumptuous stews accompanied by local wine or cider, mealtimes are a delight.
By bike is a truly great way to immerse yourself and experience the culture and traditions and to get an insight into the history of this exotic corner of the Iberian Peninsula.
